MIT researchers have developed needleless shots like the ones administered by Dr. McCoy, and it’s cool technology:
“The injector is built around a Lorentz-force actuator–a small, powerful magnet surrounded by a coil of wire that’s attached to a piston. When the system is charged, it interacts with the magnetic field to produce a force that pushes the piston forward. This force ejects the drug at a pressure and velocity strong enough to get through skin, but supposedly feels no worse than a mosquito bite.”
At last, Trekkies and Trypanophobes have something in common. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have pulled a page from Star Trek’s book and have developed a technique for givin..
