If you liked the VCR cat feeder, then you are going to love the iPod treat dispenser for dogs. If you have an iPhone, and a lonely dog, this is a must-do project.

Stephen Myers, a Ph. D student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida, rigged up a webcam so he could check in on his dog while he’s in school. But that wasn’t enough: Myers built a motorized dog treat dispenser out of a CD spindle case, cardboard scraps, random household junk and a servo motor, then hooked it up to the internet using an ioBridge “Smart Board.” He can now hit a button on his iPhone to see his dog, then hit another button to dispense a dog treat.
