Vitality GlowCaps smart pill bottle toppers now available on Amazon — Engadget

Vitality GlowCaps smart pill bottle toppers now available on Amazon — Engadget.

This looks interesting….a medication bottle top that tells you when to take your medication AND tells your doctor if/when you have taken your them. Granted, it doesn’t take a picture of you actually swallowing the pill, but you have to at least open the bottle. I wonder how easy it is to open. I mean, is there a disclaimer for families with children too young to know better, but old enough to be able to screw off the top? Also, I am assuming they just fit on your typical bottle, so that you can have your properly labeled medication in hand.

Compliance is always an issue, and I think this has tremendous potential. At $10-$15 a month for each, it is still a little steep for people who are taking 15 medications, and then you can’t use the nice pill box. Maybe they have a travel version in the making?
