30 Pill-Inspired Innovations

From Cute Message Pills to Prescription Head Rests

— February 21, 2014 — Lifestyle
In our culture, the pharmaceutical industry reigns supreme as the provider of cures of all kinds that are constantly delivering both positive and negative results to any number of life-threatening ailments. Taking these notions in stride, we've become very accustom to pill taking in modern times, which is something this collection of pill-inspired innovations look to elicit a certain familiarity with regard to.

We look to pharmaceuticals as our savour when it comes to everything from a simple headache to cancer treatment and this high level of ubiquity is something that we can definitely take into account when browsing these often strange pill-inspired products and campaigns. Perhaps crafted as such to elicit notions of curing a problem or simply for fun, pill inspiration is widespread and garnering waves of attention.
