She even got to snog Picard in an alternate version of the future. Now, you too can cast smouldering glances at tasty French starship captains by using this hypodermic-syringe alternative – the “Mother’s Kiss”.
It’s a cheap, cheerful device, which avoids needles altogether by using tiny plastic ampules to deliver the meds. There’s a full picture of the device and some more info over the jump, and there’s a non-embeddable video on the National Geographic’s website.
The Mother’s Kiss isn’t entirely painless, but it’s certainly less painful than sticking a whacking great needle into your arm. It’s also likely to be considerably less painful than the Plasmablade Scalpel. It’s main advantage over a traditional syringe, aside from the cheapness, is that it’s much safer – it can’t transmit blood infections like normal syringes can.
