Having been playing around with ‘connecting’ things a fair bit these days, you find yourself asking the question ‘what could we do if this thing could talk’ for a lot of objects you interact with. Here is one simple example.
Even though our little man is 3 in November, I still find myself verging on paranoid when it comes to administrating medicine – the amounts and frequency.
So ‘what could we do if the cap could talk’; one idea I have is broadcasting the cap has been opened with an receiving app logging the time; so you know exactly when you can need give your little one more meds. Of course you could have the time logged on a LCD display but having it as simple as broadcasting via GATT (Bluetooth LE) it could be at an acceptable price point and mean you’re not having to swap batteries out every other day.
