Dexter Chua Yong Jun


Mentors: Erick Kristianto

Dexter is a 14-year-old who believes in living life to the fullest as you do not know what tomorrow might bring. He muses that we are like a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. In his free time, he enjoys playing basketball and daydreaming. He firmly believes in the human capacity to be kind and that everyone should be given an opportunity to be loved and cared for, regardless of whatever background they are from.

The Project

MediMind is the first wearable medicine dispenser of its kind in the world. MediMind aims to let each elderly person feel more like an individual, by integrating an already common product in their daily lives - a wristwatch, with a medicine dispenser. This will help them be more independent, giving them a sense of autonomy, empowering them to live life more freely. I would like to develop Medimind to a full-scale project at VIVITA and also explore other wearables. I will work with the resources and amazing mentors and through them, I hope to continue developing my ideas.
