Countdown Pills
Countdown Pills

Countdown pills is a kind of pill that can help people learn about the expiry date of medicines more intuitively.Each tablet of countdown pills have a “Liquid Timer” with timing function. When the pills exceed the expiry date, the liquid will enter the space where the pills are to pollute the pills, reminding people that the pills are not available. Countdown pills can effectively reduce the potential health risks of taking expired medicines by mistake.
