1. Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project
2. Prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920x1080) and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, < ~minute, < ~10 MB) and put them in your root directory

Plan for  the week



This was very eye opening week for me where I enjoyed and learned a lot of things. First of all I was so much fascinated by the concept Ready-Fire-Aim. I have been following Ready-Aim-Fire till now and the this new concept and the way Neil explained it with an examples was so much eye opening. It was great also to know about current issues and problems we might and the const involved with Patient. Similar with the income, insights and options that i knew from the class was of great value to me.

Creative Commons (CC)

I was always fascinated by creative commons and the options that title ha. It is denoted by CC in the license as well. Creative Commons licenses give everyone from individual creators to large institutions a standardized way to grant the public permission to use their creative work under copyright law. From the reuser’s perspective, the presence of a Creative Commons license on a copyrighted work answers the question, “What can I do with this work?” (Source:

 It has defines by four feature as shown below below



  1. BY: Credit must be given to the creator
  2. NC: Only noncommercial uses of the work are permitted
  3. ND: No derivatives or adaptations of the work are permitted
  4. SA: Adaptations must be shared under the same terms

There are six combinations that you can use to license your work through creative commons with public domain license which allows creators to give up their copyright and put their works into the worldwide public domain. You can know about each of them from this link.



Dissemination Plan

I will be using CC BY-NC-SA license for by Product. I have selected it as I am working on a humanitarian FabLab in Nepal as well as since I want others to access iterate and post the new versions for the same and share. I don't want someone to just take the design and concept and commercialize openly but has to take my permission so kept non commercial feature.


The Features of my products license would be as follows:

BY: Attribution. You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

NC: Non-Commercial. You may not use the material for commercial purposes.

SA: ShareAlike. If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

Here as this would be under the license mentioned above, people can adapt my final project giving credit ad indication for the changes and also will be under same license.

Business opportunity:

The main purpose of the proposed system is to help patients, mainly seniors and elderly people, take their medications on time in an easy manner without the possibility of skipping pills and thus reducing the risk of accidental over/under dose treatment. Failing to take medications promptly can have serious consequences on patients including delay in recovery, occurrence of other illness and even death. Hence, this product can be targeted individually  as well as in nursing homes. As this is also a modular design, it will be cheaper as people can but modules just according to the pills they need. 

As for individual, the product will be sold via pharmacy where people who needs medicine can always see and buy the product. Similarly, I will talk to hospital which are specialized for health problems like diabetes, blood pressure where patients need to have medicine regularly. And also the schedule is very much  important to those patients. Similarly, nursing homes where elderly people are there will be targeted. This will reduce the pressure on nurse as well as once the dispenser is set for a patient, it is automatically, dispensing according to the assigned time

Here there are two ways that I can go. Either i can invest a small amount of money for short run manufacturing and sell it to users for knowing the users and their feedback. If the feedback is great, I will be Searching for the partner with whom i can share the equity and product the product. Another approach would be royalty basis. I can sell my design to the firms who have been making machines for patients where I can get profit as per number of items sold. Though partnership can be made between anyone with funds, priority will be given to the people who have background in medical field and has connections to different pharmacy and hospitals.

Future plans:
1. A standalone application or android and iOS will be made.
2. The casing will be made from injection molding reducing the cost of the  product.
3. Modules for different pills of different sized will be developed according to common standard sizes.

Summary slide (Click image for video)

Adobe illustrator was used to make the slide where the size of the artboard is 1920 X 1080.
For the video clip, I used Microsoft power point for animations and the exported video from the ppt.
