Engineer Creates iPhone Dog Treat Feeder

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Handhelds, Videos,

Stephen Cooper, a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida, decided to take a CD spindle and an ioBridge, a smart board that requires very little skill and will set up an online interface page for you. Ninety minutes later he came up with a way to feed his pup Cooper remotely from his iPhone. Stephen explains on his site how you can make a similar gadget. We guess that his dog was happy once he got the hang of it, but we bet he would rather have had the 90 minutes with his best friend.

All Dogs Go To Ellen: An Opinion

Ellen sobs over IggyWhen I first started writing this, I had every intention of trashing talk show meltdown from earlier this week. My thoughts on the subject have, however, changed somewhat. Despite this, I do still feel that Ellen’s sob story during the opening moments of her daytime talk show were ridiculous. To tell your audience that you can’t be funny and do your show as usual because “things are going so terribly wrong right now” seems to be a little - er - melodramatic.
