The first working model of the now-iconic birth control pill dispenser is in the Smithsonian’s history collection. It’s built out of clear plastic, paper, and double-sided tape, held together by a snap from a child’s toy, with slices of wooden dowel standing in for pills. It was created to solve a vexing problem.
Here's a great idea for a birth control pill package, where a 24-hour alarm sounds at the time you designate, and when you twist open the case, it stops the alarm. Take a pill, twist the case closed and that alarm is reset for the next day. Careful, though—might be a bit embarassing if that alarm goes off during Mass.
