Use camera to scan the texts on the prescription and Medicine DR. will show each pill’s information (i.e., effects, parts it affects, and how to use) through words, sounds, and icons. Data will be saved and can share with one’s relatives or family doctors. Users can also set an alarm clock as a reminder to take pills.
This design aims to reduce the rate of elders to eat the wrong or expired pills help illiteracies to understand the information of medicines."
