Bugs Inspire Needle Alternative
Getting a shot, or getting blood taken are probably the most feared experiences when going to the doctor. A new discovery may hopefully make big hypodermic needles a thing of the past.
Indian scientists have designed a micro needle that mimics the blood sucking action of the female mosquito. This drastically smaller needle only inflicts the slightest sting (just like a mosquito bite), cutting back the painful puncture of a typical syringe. This nature inspired innovation can be used to both draw blood and inject substances into the body.
