    hook up a bunch in parallel, with generators, and find a crazy old lady with a bunch of cats…

    light up Vegas with enough of em.

  2. millsra says:

    I think this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. My cats on the other hand think “What!?! Work for our food. No way.”

  3. Lagg says:

    I agree with Millsra.

    Awesome device , but no way would my cat go to such elaborate means to get food. Getting dangerouly close to knocking off expensive things or doing a really annoying meow storm is much more effecient way to get food in his mind.

  4. Shadyman says:

    You COULD light vegas, that is, until the cats stop for food. And then… The Great Darkness!

  5. DGary says:

    That’s what syncronizing the multiple sets would be for, failover

    Holy crap. I’m going to start this just as soon as I’m done with my current project! …assuming the wife will let me put this in our home.

    Too fun! I wonder how long it takes the cat to get the hang of it?
