Inspiration Manage medication for people who cannot manage them themselves.
What it does
Dispenses medication in controlled amounts. Reads medication labels. Sends notifications reminders. Uses a medication query API to determine information about a specific medication in the system.
How we built it
Through an iterative process of brainstorm: first we developed a rough prototype in which we aimed to lay the groundwork for the fundemental features of the project; then an app was developed to control the device.
Challenges we ran into
Everything, especially that we didn't have parts.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Finding said resources/parts to create a working prototype.
What we learned
Bring parts next time.
What's next for pill.me
Global domination. In terms of in-home pill dispensaries of course.
