Pill Bottles That “Remember” Being Opened

Expect more and more products to serve the short-term memory-challenged and/or absent-minded scatterbrains (like me) as more boomers board the geriatric bandwagon.  I’ll get out a prescription, get distracted, then forget: Did I take that pill or not. Sure I could use those multibox thingies with several compartments for each pill. But that would require me to be organized. So how about a pill bottle that remembers if it’s been opened? Maybe it would be a like a Mood Ring, changing color temporarily if it’s been under pressure. Or maybe opening the top makes such a loud “pop” you can’t help but remember. (Unless, of course, you’re really hard of hearing … )
