New Pill Bottles for the Visually Impaired

A new prescription-medicine pill bottle for the visually impaired and blind developed by students at the University of Cincinnati may make following daily pill regimens much easier.  The new bottles include attached hinged caps with distinct surface textures and different vibrant colors for each separate compartment.  The entire bottle is stout in design to prevent tipping and facilitates easy access to medication.  Another safety measure would be an audio button that will state the medicinal contents of a particular compartment.
