Needle-less Injections on the Horizon?

Although it is only in prototype stages at this point in time, a Japanese engineer may have discovered a way to do away with the needle part of the injection process.

Called "Mother's Kiss", the device uses tiny plastic ampules to deliver medications without the need for the needle. This could be a big change for the entire medical field. Needle phobics (and there are many folks with this fear) could finally get injections without the fear of the cold steel.

There is a video of the device here on the National Geographic website.
