ok this is a couple of days old but still impressive

A 22-year-old student has invented an asthma inhaler which is small enough to fit into a wallet or purse.
Mild asthma sufferer Adam Bates, from Witney, Oxfordshire, created the 6mm- thick Thinhaler as an alternative to the inhalers most sufferers carry.

"I wanted the inhaler to fit in with the lifestyle of someone who has asthma," said the design student.

The inhaler is the same shape as a credit card and contains between 50 and 100 doses of dry powder medication.

Slimeline Inhaler

That's nice, a competitor for the GSK "Advair" disk inhaler.

Great find Gryffen and its bound to be affective in my opinion. Much easier than carrying one of the tube ones (i dont have asthma though).

This would perhaps make it less likely to lose or misplace.

Smart design too
