Pill dispenser: 2000 - CMU Shop
This was our main project for our Junior Studio course titled, "Products and Systems." The project was to fill a need for a user group, and the user group we had to design for was the elderly. I chose to do a pill container because we had had a vignette in how people work with things earlier in the semester. The mechanism uses a series of three reduction gears enclosed in the body to move a carriage from one hole to another thereby dispensing one pill at a time. I really slacked off on this project because I had many more interesting projects going on at the same time (OPCaTs and D.C.), and I really didn't think it was worthy of my portfolio.
