There’s no reason your pill bottle can’t be cool. A new company has reinterpreted that staple of daily health, turning it into a series of sleek, functional and downright sexy looking replacements. As the designers say, they are removing the negative connotations with easier to use forms.
The designers  of Sabi talk about their choices and reasons behind this re-imagining.
Many others are thinking along these same lines. How can technology be used to improve aging? By changing the overall model of interaction and care, some are designing systems  that will allow people to live on their own with greater ease. This offers people the freedom to live at home, but remain connected to the wider world.
