Those who need to take pills throughout the day, be it because of a passing illness or more chronic conditions, know that medicating carries a certain degree of stigma, but the 'Duma Pocket' from packaging company Gerresheimer is has the potential to put that stigma out of sight. The container is designed to deliver one's pharmaceuticals subtly, with a form factor that makes it look more similar to a box of chewing gum or mints than to a container of pills.

To be sure, such a design could potentially pose a problem for children. In order to avoid kids accidentally consuming medicinal products, the case comes with an inventive childproof closure. To open the Duma Pocket, one must squeeze the sides with one hand while lifting the tab with the other, a motion that requires adult hands to carry out.
