The 'PillDrill' is a connected device that not only reminds users to take their medications, but also tracks their intake and sends notifications to friends and family following each dose.

Unlike other medication reminders that involve complicated apps, the PillDrill relies on key gestures to make sure users are on top of their daily medication. To use the device, users simply attach an RFID tag to their pill bottle. After the user has taken their pill, they simply wave the bottle over the hub and the device will register that a dose has been taken. The device will even send a notification to friends and family to make sure they know that their loved one is on top of their medication.

The PillDrill is more intuitive and user-friendly than other medication reminders, making it ideal for old generations who are unfamiliar with smartphone technology.
