Memory Aid

Recently at a CVS near my house, while I was waiting for the pharmacist to help me, I spent my time checking out the wide assortment of pill boxes on sale. Each contraption was obviously designed to help people remember to take medications on time and while being easy to access. While it was fascinating to see how much energy had been invested into solving this very common problem, the chances of any of the systems in being really helpful seemed slim.

Now, the
Glo Cap Connector with its ability to play increasingly insistent melodies to prompt us take our medicines is likely to be a lot more effective. While they are at it, they might want to embed a little something in the pills to make sure we are actually eating it and not flushing it down the toilet.
