The pill bottle hosting the important electrical component plays on the idea that “Laughter is the best medicine”. While circumstance might prove otherwise, the notion that laughter can help deal with stress and lead to better relationships and overall health is no lie. According to an article by Forbes, laughter causes the brain to release serotonin, which is a hormone with similar effects as antidepressants. Laughter’s endorphin releasing effects also improves social bonds by causing other people to laugh. It also has anti-inflammatory effects which help to protect the heart and nourish long term health. This information bolstered my determination to create this device to help people reap these medical, social, and emotional benefits while playing on the element of nostalgia. The pill bottle also nods to the fact that just as patients inadvertently forget to take their prescribed medication, we can easily get caught up in stress in our day-to-day and forget to laugh and take life a little less seriously.
