The conventional method of taking prescription drugs is to take them manually, but that can sometimes lead to forgetfulness. With the IntelliDrug, however, you would never forget to take your meds again.

IntelliDrug is a device only two molar widths in size, made up of stainless steel and polymers, that would contain a drug reservoir and micro fluidic duct shaped like a molar. The concept behind this device is that, at timed intervals, programmed by a doctor, it would release a dose of drugs supplied by the doctor to treat a patient through the duration of their therapy.

It uses sensors and an electrically controlled valve and is powered by two small batteries.
