This pill dispenser device may be not still be feasible but it addresses a common but rarely addressed problem.

Most people know an elderly person who needs to take a multitude of medicines and vitamins each day -- an arduous and easy to forget process. Instead of being forced to take a handful or more of pills each day, this pill dispenser device hopes to pulverize them and compress them together. The device concept, entitled the 'Pill Printer' would work by pulverizing and mixing different pills together after being loaded with various capsules.

While it is unlikely that this device is able to accomplish what it hopes to, the idea is certainly a creative one and it resolves an issue that should be addressed in modern medicine.
