Two years ago, I spent a long, frustrating weekend out of town juggling a ziplock bag of vitamins, a giant bottle of fish oil pills, a blister pack of birth control, and an orange bottle of prescription medication.
When I came home, I decided I had to make my life easier. I figured a seven-day pillbox would make traveling more simple, cut down on clutter, and help me remember to take my pills.
As anyone who's bought a pillbox knows, there was nothing for sale that I even remotely wanted to be seen carrying. Not only were all the pillboxes I saw bulky and poorly designed, they also looked like a walking advertisement that I was carrying around a box of pills.
Online was no better. I searched every combination of "pillbox," "pill box," "pill case," "pill organizer," and "pillcase" (not a real word, it turns out) that I could think of, and nothing.
I couldn't understand why no one had designed something that people like me could throw in their gym bag or take to work and not feel weird about. After all, everyone I knew took some sort of pill at least semi-regularly - whether it was daily, like prescription medication or multivitamins, or something they carried "just in case," like pills for migraines or lactose intolerance.
So with nothing else out there, I decided to design it myself. And after a few long years of development, here we are!
