Spin / Intelligent Medical Box


For visually impaired people, the process of taking the drug has many inconveniences: it is hard for them to identify different pills and see the usage and dosage of the drug. Therefore, we design SPIN, an intelligent medicine container for visually impaired people. The medicine container can be controlled by voice commands and provide users necessary information, enabling users to find and take drugs more conveniently. Moreover, the pillbox could record the user's drug-using condition and share the data with doctors. Patients could regularly check at home instead of going to the hospital, eliminating many inconveniences for them.
