Web-based dog food dispenser lets you leave your pets alone for days

A kid named Tyler made this. A kid! Well done, young man. The “Internet Dog Feeder” consists of an ioBridge and a continuously-rotating servomechanism controlled via a web interface consisting of a video camera that shows your dog’s bowl and “Feed Dog” and “Stop Feeding Dog” hyperlinks.

This is actually not a bad idea at all. Maybe not for leaving your pet alone for days, as the title of this post so irresponsibly suggests, but perhaps if you get stuck at work or something else comes up, you could use a contraption such as this. Now Tyler needs to build a robot that takes the dog for walks and lets it out in the backyard to make a tinkle or a doo-doo.
