Raspberry Pi Dog Treat Machine with webcam! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Here’s a great email activated dog treat machine project shared with us yesterday by John at NYC CNC.

He says:

I just finished my first official Raspberry Pi project: the Raspberry Pi Dog Treat Machine! Your tutorials were a HUGE factor in helping learn how to do this project!

And here are details from his video post:

How do you combine physical computing, metal fabrication and Vizsla’s? WIth an automatic dog treat machine! A RaspberryPi based machine that uses a DC gearmotor, servo, LCD and webcam to dispense dog treats! A python script monitors Judd’s email address (juddwouldlikeatreat@gmail.com). When you email Judd, he’ll get treats! In return, the Python script tells the Raspberry Pi to take a picture which Python then emails back to you as a thank you!
