Pi for Pets: Cage Camera Stream, Food Dispenser, and More! | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Over at Hacker Noon, Michel Parreno has a series of pet-related Pi posts, for remote viewing (awwwww bunny!) and controlling a dry food dispenser. Michel’s builds all essentially work together and he does a great job laying down some primer tips & tricks for developing with Pi – so if you’re interested in building a Pi project for your pet but have never made anything that ambitious, this is a really good place to start.

This article is part of a serie about how to spy and feed your pet with Raspberry Pi, don’t miss the first steps !

In the previous articles, we have learned how to build a camera server and a food dispenser. Now is the time to add the final touch to our connected cage. Buttons at the front of course ! One to turn off the camera when we’re at home, another to trigger manually the food dispenser.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
