MEDIA Hacker group creates $30 DIY Epipen to expose corporate greed and save lives

In response to the corporate insanity surrounding Epipen (company Mylan purchased the rights to Epipen in 2007 and raised the prices from  $57 to $318), medical hacking collective, Four Thieves Vinegar, has established a DIY version of the life-saving injector for $30.

The epipen works by spring load injecting epinephrine into someone that is suffering from anaphylactic shock.  Anaphylaxis can occur as an allergic reaction to a wide array of things, including peanuts or bee stings, and the Epipen, for many, is a last line of defense.
