“The Mood Cube is child-like, but not childish,” Havas said. “If you’re caring for someone, you’ll know when the person was awake, how they’re feeling, and when they’ve missed a dose. You won’t need to waste time when you communicate with the person you’re caring for by asking how they’re feeling and if they’ve taken their medicine. It avoids the spiral of negativity that can emerge in these situations.”
The PillDrill Kit—consisting of the hub, 12 scanning tags, two pill strips, and the Mood Cube—is available now for the introductory price of $199. Havas said PillDrill also plans to introduce tracking tags that can be attached to other types of objects, such as neti pot or an insulin pen, and another cube for recording symptoms.
