Popit is a device and app will tell you if you've missed taking your birth control pill

Sensor technology is now being employed for birth control pills thanks to the Popit device and app. Studies show that as many as one in nine women have an unplanned pregnancy because they didn’t forgot to take the pill.

The Popit device clips onto your birth control pack and uses audio and tactile sensors to detect if the pill seal has been broken and the package handled. If it hasn’t, the app will send an alert to your smartphone letting you know you haven’t taken your pill. The app will also tell you if you’ve taken more than the required dosage. Popit is currently on pre-order and retails for around $60 USD.
