Arduino vitamin/pill reminder


Having to remember to take a vitamin or medication periodically can easily result in missed doses. If it’s a vitamin, probably no big deal. But if its a medical maintenance drug a missed dose can have serious consequences.

Ryan Blace from ibuildthings informs us of his latest project, a vitamin/pill reminder. He designed this Arduino controlled device to remind him to take a vitamin every three days. It maintains the proper timing and flashes an LED when its time to take a pill. The unit also senses when a bottle is removed so as to reset the timer. His code includes the “time” library, and can easily be modified for a different interval according to your needs.

You can read all the build details and get the source code from Ryan’s ibuildthings website.
