I worked in a group of 4 to design and implement an embedded systems project. We made a watch that connects with a medical database and web app that reminds the users when to take their medications with a screen notification and haptic feedback. The user has touch their watch to prescription bottles in order to clear the notification (these bottles are from a “futuristic pharmacy with RFID tag identifiers”). This is logged in a database such that the patient and doctor can keep track.

The watch is battery powered and lasts all day, largely because the watch sleeps unless awoken by a notification or a wrist flick to see the time. We designed various clock faces the the user could chose from. The focus was on the electronics and software, as opposed to the physical prototype. But our prototype gave us a mapping of user interaction and proved it was possible to have our system on a wearable scale.
