#2134: Medizine

Today’s invention is an extension to the idea of soft medicine capsules.

The usual capsule containing a yellow-coloured drug has another half capsule slipped over one end (red).

This allows a second powdered medicine to be contained in this extra space.

Aside from the placebo effect of an apparently extra-strength drug, the arrangement might be used to supply an easily swallowable additional chemical in a precise relative amount, whilst still being able to maintain separate production lines.

Using a second capsule end with different time release properties could be a way to coordinate the actions of these different preparations.

This design might be further developed by adding more half-capsules to either end.


  1. The outer capsule elements could dissolve very rapidly and contain either lubricant or sweetener to make swallowing easier.
