The Memo Box is a smart, Bluetooth connected pill box. It’s a pet-project of two Cambridge students, who are looking to raise money through Kickstarter to turn their project into a real-life product.
The systems consists of a cloud computing servers, box wired with sensors that tracks user’s access to its contents, and technology that seamlessly syncs information across the box, app and server.
The accompanying Android and iOS apps are used to monitor pill intake and to immediately notify users about any discrepancies.The cloud server decides which and when notifications are pushed to the user if the dose is missed. The underlying software analyzes user’s habits, and learns from the user to create a more personalized experience.
The accompanying Android and iOS apps are used to monitor pill intake and to immediately notify users about any discrepancies such as forgotten pill box (while leaving the home). This, in turn, makes Memo Mox a must-have tool for the elderly and their families.
The box itself is designed for different medications and vitamins, including pills, blister packs, and small ampoules and eye drops. It also has a dedicated reminder button pressing on which the user will find out when next pill is scheduled for intake.
If the Kickstarter campaign turns into a major success and blasts past £350,000 (about $556,000), the creators may decide to create larger size Memo Box that will be able to accommodate inhalers and insulin pens. In the meantime, these two Cambridge students would be happy with £30,000 ($48,000) raised to kickstart the production. A single Memo Box unit goes for £25 ($40).
