Jack in the box or out of the box thinking from Microsoft

What is next ? Microsoft execs are saying that we may in the future be able to dispense our medications from an printer cartridge! OMG!

Printers are already liquid delivery systems, but instead of ink, people might someday put the ingredients of different medications into printer cartridges, said Craig Mundie, chief research and strategy officer at Microsoft, in a speech in Jakarta, Indonesia on Friday.

The drugstore-in-a-box, as he called it, would be part of several devices that could increasingly use information technology for health diagnosis and treatment.

What I think? Don’t we have enough on our medicinal plates to contend with? Better still what sorts of regulations are we going to be faced with on this platform? Makes my head hurt, hey does anyone have an Aleve? Oh but wait you might just be able to go to the drugstore and reuse your recyclable printer cartridge and get a fill up of Aleve. Oh my! Read the article yourself and see just how this outside the box thinking is being developed.
