Indoor cat hunts his own dinner every day in totally awesome way!
Monkey the cat hunts for his dinner, with help from an Arduino.
"This Arduino-enabled cat feeder came about after I had a crazy idea to help Monkey, my indoor cat, live a more fulfilled and self-actualized existence.
The feeder is a Super Feed brand (I can’t recommend them enough – for basic hackability and general quality), and is triggered when the Arduino detects the RFID chips embedded in the wiffle golf balls. One note when working with Super Feeders, they’re activated by closing a circuit for any length of time, but after feeding they have a several minute reset interval, or refractory period, designed to avoid back-to-back feedings; fortunately they also have a push-button reset switch, which the Arduino can close to allow immediate re-feeding (helpful for training). I also added a keyfob remote, for days when Dad is too tired to go around hiding balls..." Ben Millam wrote.
