BeaCan / Smart pill bottle


BeaCan is a smart pill bottle that is specifically designed for patients with depression while also working for people experiencing medicine addiction and abuse. It was made of reinforced plastic that cannot be opened by most of the tools. It only offers patients a certain amount of medicine in a day which is preset by doctors, patients’ guardians or family members. BeaCan looks like a beacon that provides more warming feeling than normal pull bottles, which is important for those patients.
