Every once in a while you stumble across something on YouTube that strikes you as both entertaining and educational. I was searching around when I found the “Internet Dog Feeder” by Tyler. I don’t know much about who is behind the project, but it for sure works well and is a very cool design. Of course it uses the ioBridge IO-204 module to drive a continuous rotating servos from a web page that also has a live camera feed of the dog’s bowl. Tyler can log on to his web page and see if the bowl is empty and send some food. With a click of the mouse, the servo spins to fill the dog bowl.
Tyler’s “Internet Dog Feeder” took a little over an hour to create. Tyler appears to be a young, up-and-coming inventor with a solid invention that his dog is sure to appreciate! Thanks for the unexpected delight on YouTube.
