Dog Ball Launcher? Yes Please!

When a dog is home alone, having a launcher that can throw a ball can keep the dog entertained. To make the launcher work, the launcher needs a hole to launch a ball out of and a motor with the most important constraint being cost. Originally these requirements were meant to be with an arm or an air powered device. However, that was changed to two wheels and a pipe where the ball would launch out of, the reason for this is because the two wheels would send the ball flying because of the ball getting squished between the wheels.
