John from NYC CNC created a Raspberry Pi-based dog treat machine which dispenses treats for his dog Judd when you email a special email address. What I like the most about this Raspberry Pi-based project is that the it replies back to you with a still image taken from a webcam so that you can see Judd enjoying the treats!

    I’m guessing Judd is going to get a LOT of treats in the coming days…
