    Isn't it interesting!? I've read that site before. Very cool. :cool:

    Makes me very happy that my pump can fit in my pocket. Technology has come so far! I can honestly say that I would definitely not be pumping if I had to wear a contraption such as that!! :rolleyes:;)

    Haha. Right? That thing is HUGE!
    Pumps, meters, and even needles themselves have become so much smaller, better, and more affective. It's amazing! What will they come out with next!? We have tubeless, remote bolusing, cgms. I wonder...lol :rolleyes:

    With a computer, you eliminate the need for all the extra mechanical stuff. The only mechanical part of modern pumps is the piston which is why they can make them so much smaller.

    I just wish my pump could deliver glucagon like that one. :p
