Wireless Pet Treat Dispenser using Arduino Nano RP2040
Prove to your pets they’re still the goodest boy even when you aren’t home. Dispense treats from anywhere with your phone. Full build guide from KiraKiraSoul on Hackster.io:
This treat dispenser is designed to hang from a wall hook and is controlled wirelessly over WiFi, via an app on the user’s phone. There are 8 slots for treats, dispensed using a servo. These compartments might be large enough to hold food for a couple of days for smaller pets, such as hamsters or fish, especially with modifications. However, for our purpose, we only wanted to hold a few small dog treats.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
