So I decided to make a machine that automatically gives the right pills at the right moment and also sounds an alarm so that the person who needs those pills knows it's time for his or her medication.
It is my first 'big' project that combines a clock/calender, memory and movement.
If you like it, then please vote for it in the Health contest.
Step 1: What does it do?
The 'machine' has seven drums (one for each day of the week) with 4 compartments that you can fill with your medication. When filled, you put them back in the machine and connect them to it.
On the front of the machine is a lcd-screen and 2 buttons. There you can set the time and date and program when you need the medication.
When it is time for your medication, the machine drops the correct pills and sounds an alarm until you take the pills and push a button. After that it goes back to "sleep" until the next alarm.
