    super cool man, I just got my arduino in the mail a month ago and it can automate so many things.Your project is awesome tho!

  2. you can do it …
    you can do it without laser if you use stepper motor or servo you can write how many steps to turn

    Hi kryptekdta. Thanks for your description. Is there a chance you can post a video or some pics of you your version? Thanks again!

    to push the bowl out of the way when shes hungry. So that was the fix. the same arduino board controls my deadbolt so I can unlock the door via internet but a password is required.
    I would like to add a RFID tag to their collars and if they go up to it and they haven’t eaten in awhile (in case i forgot) it will auto drop a snack or cup i have both coded. I wanted to do this design but I want to hold 50lb bag of food! When water is hooked up using a valve I’ll post vid response when done GJ

    Mine is alot different, I use linksys bridged and arduino and ethernet shield, the PVC pipe is attached to the bottom of the box and leads to a bowl, a servo holds a flat piece of metal in two spots 2 servos one servo opens drops to next then top closes and bottom servo opens to let food drop closes, top opens fills up just a cup closes.. waits for cycle/command via internet there is a trip wire set up so if the bowl is moved/out of reach of pvc it wont allow you to, the dog likes

    This is really cool 🙂

    I’m going to start building an arduino dog tracking system soon – but i’m not completely sure how I’m going to do it yet.

    great project!

    This is cool, put it in a fancy box, build em in taiwan and you could flog them for £500. It’d be a bargain compared to pet hotel fees.

    Perhaps a version for kids that dispensed oreos.
