Injections for vaccinations, while saving the lives of millions of people from common sicknesses and diseases, are still pretty painful; particularly for younger children who are most at risk of diseases. That might change within the next ten years, thanks to researchers in Dorian Liepmann’s lab at the University of California, Berkeley, who’ve developed the MucoJet. The creation is a needle-free, pill-sized, 3D-printed device that shoots a stream of vaccine into the tissue of the cheek, making vaccinations practically painless.

This method can be called the “Molten Copper Overwrite™,” which ensures total and COMPLETE destruction of the hard disk drive, making it nothing more than an unusable block of metal, or a nice modern art-inspired paper weight. … Continue reading This is Probably The BEST WAY to Erase a Hard Drive…
The engineers at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) have developed a mobility-minded exoskeleton specifically for children. Even though its main purpose is to help disabled kids move around, some experts believe that the device has the ability to act as a life-saving device.
This is the XSTAT Rapid Hemostasis System, an innovative sponge-filled dressing hemostatic device developed by RevMedx Inc., which works by pumping expandable, tablet-sized sponges into a wound, stanching bleeding while a patient is rushed to hospital. Recently, the XSTAT was used to save the life of a coalition forces soldier who was shot in the leg, and it’s the first documented clinical use of the product, originally approved for military use back in 2014. Also, late last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved XSTAT for use in the general population. Continue reading “HEY!
