About

The Road Warrior is made from the same plastics that are used in military and automotive applications. You'll notice in our rewards that we're offering to send out videos of the Road Warrior travel pill case, being shot from a potato cannon, run over by a Humvee, and smacked against a brick wall with a hockey stick, submerged in water, and more. Why? 

This is a market that has been full of gimmicky products for a long time. We plan to end that. 

When you are a prior service member and 25 year traveler, it is easy to relate to people on the move. I have an entire bag of "Travel Pill Cases" from the local drugstores that do a great job at home, but are not meant for the road. There was a time when medication was for "older people" who were retired and only traveled for vacation.  Times have changed.

More young people are taking regular prescription medications than ever. People who are young and on the move, such as business travelers, outdoor's men, pilots and airline professionals and our military service people, take daily prescription medications. Prescription medications used to come in a tiny brown bottle. Today, if you are on maintenance medications, they come via mail order in something that more resembles a milk jug. We challenge you to try and find room for those "milk jugs" in your suitcase as well as enjoy your pulverized medication once you arrive at your destination.

The design criterion for the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case was built from talking with other travelers and service people and accumulating their needs for a travel pill case:

  • Spill Proof
  • Impact Resistant
  • Moisture Resistant
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Made in USA
  • Eco Friendly (Made from Recycled Materials & Fully Recyclable)
  • Visual Confirmation of consumption (i.e. you took em)
  • 8 Days (7 Days and a Spare for Aspirin, Imodium, Rings, Earrings, Cuff Links, etc.)
  • Compact - Fits into Dead Space in Computer Bags and Suitcases
  • TSA Compliant
  • UV Tolerant
  • Long Term Warranty - Kickstarter Backers will Receive an Exclusive Lifetime Warranty

To date, we have developed 2D and 3D designs and worked closely with resin suppliers, cap suppliers, and injection molders to determine materials and costs to produce. We have filed for patent protection and had two generations of prototypes produced. We have done market research on the growing business travel segment with particular focus on veteran travelers and/or international travelers.

We have partnered with North West KnotWorks to make an optional lanyard out of paracord that will carry the same warranty as the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case. These lanyards are hand braided with US made paracord used in military applications all over the world.

The translucent caps provide visibility into each compartment so that you can confirm that the medication has been taken for that specific day. For people that travel and have busy lives, it is sometimes hard to remember if you took your medication. 

Part of professional product development is to have a design criteria and a way to test the product to ensure that you have achieved the design objectives.  This is where "destructive testing" comes into play and the real fun begins. Our backers to this campaign will get to see videos of the destructive testing of the final product, which will include:

  • A Humvee Parked on Top of the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case
  • Road Warrior Travel Pill Case Shot Against a Brick Wall with a Hockey Stick
  • Road Warrior Travel Pill Case Filled with Cocoa Powder Submerged in Water Down to 3 Meters
  • Road Warrior Travel Pill Case Shot Out of a Potato Cannon 
  • Many More Fun-Destructive Surprises to Prove Road Warrior Travel Pill Cases' Durability in Action

Through my professional career, I have developed hundreds of projects in various capacities.  Pledges will be used to finalize the design, execute the testing and start production.  The funding goal raised on Kickstarter will only be used to pay for the development and manufacturing of the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case.  This is our calculated expense to finalize the development, the tool and produce and ship your orders.

Our goal is to put a pill case on the market for "on the move" professionals that will be the last travel pill case ever purchased. We are offering exclusively to our Kickstarter backers a lifetime guarantee on the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case. What we really want from our backers is to validate the idea that this product is needed, desired and appreciated by the mass market. We will do the rest!

Risks and challenges

We do not see a risk in terms of achieving our design criterion. The only risk we foresee is from a schedule standpoint. If we execute our destructive tests and we realize there needs to be some redesign tweaks, each design iteration will impact delivery by an additional two weeks.

We will be in position to ship the Road Warrior Travel Pill Case by April 2015. The production of the tool, shipping to a local molder and first article production require approximately 10 weeks. Should we reach our funding goal early, we will order the tooling immediately.
