Cabe, can you rephrase the question? What depth are you asking about?

After watching the video again, it looks like the "swellable" needles may hurt.

What is the depth they take?

I agree, and very good point. Not just EEG, but other types of diagnostics as well.

In all seriousness, EEG connections could benefit from piercing the skin.

I've read some of the same cyberpunk sci-fi, Cabe. The nervous system interface would be both wild and appropriate technology for this application.

Reminds me of Cyberpunk type "wetware" medical tech. Next step, interfacing the bandage with the user's nervous system.

Chuck, I know it seems counterintuitive, but the tiny plastic hooks are so small and flexible/soft that they're supposed to be painless. The whole point of the device is adhering to wounds while not causing pain and then being easy to take off when not engorged with fluid.

Cabe, good analogy of a plunger with Velcro. it's only hard to pull off while the hooks are engorged with fluid. And I agree--it's gross! But that's part of the fun.

Hooks inspire better bandages.

This product shows once again that we can learn from nature. The challenge is knowing enough to understand where to look.

Using germs to kill germs? Sounds pretty ironic. I doubt many people would be willing to use this.
