Friday fun: Internet-Enabled Cat Feeder
Earlier this week there was an article on Digg about a Internet enabled cat feeder that I found really interesting and thought would be a good follow up to the "Maker Workshop - VCR Cat Feeder" post I made a few weeks ago.
The article "Web-Enabled Cat Feeder w/ Video Feed" is from Catster's Cats and Kittens Blog and inlcudes a link to inventor Mathew Newton's site and the video below:
Mathew's site now features a newer version of the cat feeder that uses the Linksys WRT54GL Router. The use of the versatile WRT54GL router makes this an even more interesting project, and gives me some project ideas for my own WRT54GL router. Another cool thing featured on Mathew's site is the microchip-enabled catflap for his two cats Frankie and Elmo.
If you are in to cats and technology then you have check out Mathew Newton's site, and be sure to give Catster's Cats and Kittens Blog a peek too.
Have a great weekend ~ Jim
