Origami Pills Bloom In Water [Video]

Origami Pills Bloom In Water [Video]

Design student rethinks the way we take medicine and its packaging to make the process more pleasant.

Design student Chan Min Yun from the National University of Singapore, has come up with an innovative design that rethinks our approach to taking medicine. Yun has repackaged three common medicines to look like origami flowers. When it’s put into a cup of water, it slowly blooms to reveal the medicine before the paper packaging dissolves and the contents is then released into the water.

The process of watching the petals open up aims to provide a emotional relief in addition to the physical relief from the medication. Unlike having to swallow a pill, this method makes taking medicine less daunting and unpleasant.
