How To Make An Automatic Dog Feeder

"Feeding a dog is a very time consuming task. So I made an automatic dog feeder so that feeding your dog is not hard. I used Lego Boost Scratch coding to make the feeder open and close the door for the dispenser. The dog ate the food dispensed from the feeder and the automatic feeder worked. The dog also broke the actuator once. I could fix the problem by adding walls to both sides of the feeder. Overall, the dispenser worked and the dog ate the food. I also made a timer so that the dog would have time to eat the food before the feeder closes. One thing I would want to do in the future would be to make the feeder timed to work at a certain time. The project is important because when you leave your house for a long period of time it's important to have something or somebody to feed the dog."

  1. Good approach to your concepts. Perhaps having the feeder/dispenser above a bowl and protected from the dog?
