From the start it was clear we weren’t just making an internet-connected pillbox.  Pillo needed a distinct physical presence if users are to interact with it as imagined.  Far more effective than an easily dismissed smartphone notification, Pillo will recognize your face as you walk by, say hello, and dispense your pills at a moment when you are ready to take them.

A friendly circular form factor reflects the rotating pill tray inside. Working with an international team of mechanical engineers, UX / UI designers, character animators, machine vision specialists and more, Impel helped develop a visual language that spans across multiple platforms.
