scoping study demonstrating a Design for Interaction approach to Medication

Design Goal and Interaction vision
My goal is to design a tool for teenage girls that reminds them to take their daily birth control pill and makes them feel sure they took it. The interaction qualities the design should achieve are reminding the teenage girls by triggering curiosity, similar to when you are about to open a nicely wrapped gift that came by mail, which feels exciting and fun. To help the teenage girls to feel sure of themselves taking their pill, I want them to be mindful in the moment of taking the pill, like jumping stepping stones; playful, yet you still have to keep your attention. So later on they will be able to remember they took their pill. For more information see the report and presentation files below.
