edi: the pet that takes care of you
ID, UX, Arduino
Remember being asked that question? Ugh, annoying.
But, there's more to this question than meets the eye, especially when a child takes daily medication for chronic illness. It prompted me to think,
"How could taking medication be a positive experience?"
"Should parents give their children responsibility in taking their own medication?"
Inspired by these questions and others, I designed and built edi, with the
goal to make the experience of taking medication a little bit better for everyone involved.
