Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

A laser device for less painful injections has been developed by South Korean scientists. The system could replace traditional needles, with a jab as painless as being hit with a puff of air. The laser is already used in aesthetic skin treatments. The aim now is to make low-cost injectors for clinical use. A team from Seoul National University in South Korea describe the process in the Optical Society’s journal Optics Letters. The researchers write that the laser, called erbium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet, or Er:YAG, propels a stream of medicine with the right force to almost painlessly enter the skin. The jet is slightly larger than the width of a human hair and can reach the speed of 30m (100ft) per second. (via BBC News - Laser injection less painful than needles)

The Star Trek hiss injector is on its way!  :D

This is many levels of cool - including the trekiness of it, and fewer screaming children. Which really, if you think about it, is a win for everyone. Except maybe evil villains.
