WOW: a New Contraceptive-Pill Device TEXTS You if You Forget to Take it

It’s genius!

This is one of the best inventions ever! Oviary – a little birth-control device – makes sure you never have to stress about missing your pill. The contraption knows if it’s been opened and if you’ve forgotten to take your pill, and then sends you a reminder.

All you have to do is place the blister pack in the device, push a button to sync the case with an iPhone app and it’ll send you alert messages (via text) every 24 hours if you haven’t taken your pill. It’s genius! It’s small enough to put in your handbag and you can travel with it (can be used in Wi-Fi zones).
