iPhone controlled dog treat dispenser

[Stephen Myers] has been toying around with some beta ioBridge hardware. He decided to build a remote control dog treat dispenser. ioBridge‘s hardware is built specifically to make web enabling projects easy. The main controller board has four I/O channels that speak to addon modules. It has an ethernet port on the main board and an easy to configure website.

[Stephen] used a servo addon board for his project. The dispenser is built from a scrap CD spindle attached to a servo. He can issue commands from his iPhone, which shows live video of the kennel. He’ll be building several other automation projects based on this system.

  1. to me the iphone is just the interface for this project. it looks like the iobridge part is the heart. the cd spindle cover has a new life!

  2. It isn’t iPhone controlled at all, you can do that with any browser on any phone or computer. Otherwise, it was awesome, nice job
