This is the prototyped device
We want to help others who have a difficult time keeping track of their pills.
What it does
This device takes one pill from the hopper and dispenses it after pressing a button on the web app.
How we built it
We used 3D printed parts, an Arduino Uno with some servos and node.js along with java for the code.
Challenges we ran into
We had a tough time connecting it to the web so we have it plugged into a computer which then connects the device to the web.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We got the project working with the very nice 3D prints.
What we learned
We learned how to come together as a team and create an awesome health hack
What's next for Pill Drop
We plan to continue working on this project with the integration of a fully functional mobile app and a new enclosed 3D printed housing for the mechanics of the device.
