Pillbox

Community Impact Award at the Design for Social Impact Hackathon

Cambridge, MA

October 2019

At the Design for Social Impact Hackathon my team designeda pill storage system for young professionals who take multiple medications a day that is stylish and prevents missed doses.

Brainstorming

We filled up many blackboards with our ideas

Prototyping

"Works like" prototype of the pillbox

I CADed and 3D printed a "works like" prototype of the pillbox

The "works like" prototype included Arduino-powered LEDs that lit up at the time to take the medication and turned off once the pillbox cover was lifted

Working with my teammates from MIT, RISD, and Brown University, I helped create a "looks like" prototype of the pillbox
