Junkie’s Little Helper

A networked medicine cabinet, by ITP students Shannon Bain and Meghan Trainor


The Junkie’s Little Helper communicates with a chat room so that the user’s community is aware of his/her drug abuse and potential for overdose.

The cabinet is fitted with sensors that track pill use and abuse. The data are then converted to “chat” text. An emergency mode alerts the chat rooms as well as the user with a red flashing light that eminates from the cabinet.
