SIMpill: Remember Your Meds Via SMS


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Misc. Tech


DescriptionI’m sure you’ve been there - you are prescribed a certain medication which you need to take at certain intervals during the day.

SIMpill is a medicine bottle that monitors how often pills are being taken by SMS, and it can send you a text message if you have missed a dose!

I have a feeling this is a bad idea.  Say you could hack the system somehow, and you had a family member with a large inheritance.  If they had a loss of memory, you could possibly have the system tell them to take the pills over and over until they ODed.

But then again, someone like that shouldn’t have a cell phone….

I already have somethin to alert me. Its called my mom =P

hacking the system could be an issue, but i guess its a neat feature, we’re all so busy now, never hurts to get an extra reminder. i know sometimes i forget what time i last took medicine, and then i wonder “do i take it now….or later…?”
