Do you have trouble remembering to pop your pills? Unitech has created a drug dispenser that sends a warning signal saying, "Here is your medicine. Don't forget to take it." And it keeps saying that until you take the correct dosage out of the tray. Obviously this is a handy device for elderly folks who are forgetful or suffering from something even worse. Let's just hope it never falls prey to some kind of bug that sends it into a "here is your medicine" loop until the person overdoses. That's grim—I must have forgotten to take my happy pills this morning. The price is 19,740 yen ($163).
