A man has invented a high-tech way of feeding his dog by Twitter.
As we all know that “Necessity is the mother of invention”,
well it is proved by 31years old IT consultant – Nat Morris, who spends a lot of time working away from home and isn’t always able to feed his four-year-old pet dog (toby ) by hand.
Nat Morris has setup programmed electronic system at home, whenever nat sends a message to ‘@FeedToby’ , Toby get food
through automatic food dispenser, using this technology nat can
feed his dog from anywhere in the world.
Nat morris said – ‘Toby loves it. At first he didn’t
know what was going on. Now he sits underneath, wagging his tail and waiting for the food to drop.’
How it works?
When a message is sent to @feedtoby it is
received by a mini-computer known as a
Nanode microcontroller is linked up to little
printer HP Deskjet 500.
When the mini-computer receives the
message, the buzzer goes off and Toby comes
running over and sits beneath a tube under
his feeder contraption.
Then the motor runs and pulls open a
trap door which releases a serving of food.
The doggy treat then comes dropping down
the tube and into Toby’s food bowl.
Then a digital camera then takes a photo of
him and sends it back to Nat on Twitter – so
he knows Toby has been fed.
