I love that this guy’s project blog is called Scoop My Cat Box, and the subtitle is: “One man’s quest to offload his responsibilities onto the internet.” So far, he’s working on two projects, the titular robo cat box, and an Arduino and ultrasonic range-finder-based water dish that lets you know, over the innerwebs, how much is (or isn’t) in your cat’s dish. I love the last line of the video: “In no time, your friends will know exactly how much you neglect your cat.”
