Hypo-spray! Is it odd that I thought this already existed? Or is there something similar in existence?

I was thinking that (hypospray) as well. I have the feeling I read something similar about this before, but I can't remember what or when.

Something sort of similar has existed for a long time, but wasn't very good by the look of it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_injector

Wikipedia gas-driven jet-injectors
 
There have been relatively few incidents of disease transmission between users, despite widespread use of the jet injector by the military and in large-scale vaccination campaigns. Nevertheless, because the jet injector breaks the barrier of the skin, there is a potential that biological material is transferred from one user to the next. Some viruses such as hepatitis B require less than one millionth of a millilitre to be transmitted[1] so makers of injectors need to ensure there is no cross-contamination between applications. Regarding vaccination, the World Health Organization states that jet injectors "are no longer recommended due to risks of disease transmission".[2]


Makes you wonder how that's done with this new version then. On a happier sidenote:

Wikipedia on hypospray
 
In the Star Trek universe, the hypospray was developed by the mid-22nd century


Nicely on schedule!
