Make an automatic fish feeder with Intel Edison . via instructables
Looking after two aquariums isn’t an easy job, especially for someone as forgetful as me. Sometimes, I’d forget to feed the fishies for several days until my mom would notice floating fish skeletons. Well, nowadays that never happens, because of the new AquaFeeder2.0 – a machine that feeds the fishes all by itself!
Yes, AquaFeeder is fully automated; all you have to do is leave it on 24/7, and it will automatically feed the fish twice a day. It does everything on its own, from opening and closing the aquarium lid, to dropping fish food. It also keeps you updated with the details of the aquarium and itself through a webpage that can be accessed by any phone, tablet or computer on your WiFi network.
