Pain Free Injections Coming To A Doctor Near You

I don’t know about you, but I personally don’t like getting poked with needles. I have to turn away while they stuck me. It just feels weird. Donating blood was even weirder.

While I don’t think this particular method could be used for a blood draw, a Japanese inventor has found a way to inject medicine into your veins without a needle. The method involves using gasses and/or air pressure to deliver the drugs.

While these methods have been around for a while, they have been expensive and cumbersome to use. This Japanese inventor has also figured out a way to substantially reduce the cost and make them easier to use.

Sounds almost like Star Trek, don’t you think?
