Kyle Vanhemert of WIRED brings to attention Gabriele Meldaikyte's first aid kit that can be used with one hand.

The concept cleverly brings together a few key improvements over whatever kit is likely collecting dust in some long-unopened kitchen cupboard. The first comes with the presentation. Unlatch the clean white box and you?ll find three distinct compartments, one dedicated to burns, another to scratches, and a third for more serious cuts. Right away, we?re doing better here. By organizing the contents by injury, the design takes all the ambiguity out of treatment. You don?t have to figure out how to best use this kit; it tells you.
