A new technology has been developed that helps women on "the pill" to follow the everyday regimen and reminds when a user is at risk of missing her dose.

The Oviary is an electronic box loaded with pills and paired with a smartphone and an app.

When the device is opened, it communicates with the app to record that day's successful administration.

But when the Oviary is ignored, it sends a reminder to take the pill. The device connects to a home WiFi and the user's phone number is recorded during setup.

The device has a display on the top of the box with simple to read lights that indicates the time left to take the pill for that day.

The device has its own built-in alarm function set to a 24 hour cycle. It immediately provides visual information for how a user is doing.

When the timing of the pill needs to be taken is about to expire, the Oviary sends a reminder message, followed by another after the expiration time if the pill is still ignored.

The device is not available in the market or sale. The developers are raising funds on Kickstarter to commercialize it into a real product.
