A needle-free vaccine patch that's cheaper than a needle

One hundred sixty years after the invention of the needle and syringe, we're still using them to deliver vaccines; it's time to evolve.

He shows how this tiny piece of silicon can overcome four major shortcomings of the modern needle and syringe, at a fraction of the cost.
