Pill-Pushing Robot Tells You When To Take Your Medicine

Jun 30, 2016 at 1:52 PM ET

This happy little robot is named Pillo, and he’s here to make sure you’re on drugs. Doctor-prescribed drugs!

The device hasn’t reached its Kickstarter goal yet, but in theory Pillo will use face recognition software to dispense the proper medications to various family members, communicate with doctors, and even alert caregivers when a family member has not taken their medicine. It’d be pretty damn Orwellian if it wasn’t so cute!
