using the drug delivery kit How Toys Can Save Lives on CNNs The Next List This Sunday (April 1)

At MIT, Jose Gomez-Marquez and his Little Devices Lab hack toys to make inexpensive medical devices and improvisation-friendly kits (MEDIKits) for use in developing countries. In so doing, they A) save people’s lives, and B) challenge the medical devices industry, which typically sells equipment that’s expensive and designed to prevent hacking. Program your agents to snag this Sunday’s The Next List video profile of Jose: How Toys Can Save Lives, broadcasting on CNN at 2pm ET.

Jose contributes to the MAKE blog and wrote a fantastic article on his MEDIKits for our special issue Ultimate Kit Guide last year. We’ll publish the article here on the blog next week. [UPDATE: Here it is: “Design For Hack” in Medicine]
