These Syringe Styled Products Will Make You Think About Your Next Flu Shot

— March 29, 2013 — Tech
Visiting the doctor to get a shot is something that many people dislike and others flat out despise, but just like our mothers reminded us while we cried in anxious anticipation of this painful procedure, without the aid of the syringes that inspired these syringe-styled products, our health might seriously suffer. This list of injector shaped tools goes to show that the important functions of the syringe have been adapted for many, many uses.

Featuring everything from medical alcohol dispensers to needle fashioned nurses, the world renowned shape and use of this once strictly medical tool has been reused and sometimes even reformed to fit the needs of fashion lovers, drinkers and even spacecraft designers.

Most importantly, syringe-styled products like disease stopping syringes are working to actually better medical practices that have been in place for over a century.
