Email controlled Raspberry Pi dog treat machine

Posted on Monday, January 28th, 2013 in DIY, hacks by DP

Give Judd (Visla breed K9) treats through emails, and get back a picture of him eating it. This is the idea behind the Raspberry Pi powered Judd treat machine.

The Judd Treat Machine, as shown in the youtube video below, is a Raspberry Pi based dog-treat-dispensing machine!  A combination of various skillsets (CAD, machining, fabrication, powder coating, Raspberry Pi, electrical engineering and programming) make this a fun project!  I’m “open sourcing” it in the hopes it can be a resource for others!

    Awesome project. You might need to add a scale to it to stop giving treats if your dog gets too fat. :)

    Pavlovian conditioning device to ensure that that the owner will remember to give treats to his dog with the reward being the picture. Interesting.

    Knowing what I know about the internets and dogs I can see many problems here. The owner says: “I love my dog to death”. Careful what you wish for, the internets can make that happen!
