Hello! Welcome to my first Instructable! Here I'll be showing you how to make my homemade closable food container that sends a Twitter notification every time your pet goes to eat.
Step 1: Materials
Here's what you need in order to make this work. Now, this project is very flexible, so you can substitute some parts out. Here's what I used:
Rfid tag and sensor
Some jumper cables
An old DVD player, or anything with a DC motor, and keep it's other insides.
Cardboard and any material that you want to house your pet feeder in
A bowl for the food
An ethernet cable
A 9v plugin that's compatible with the Arduino. (So that you can just plug this device into the wall after you get done coding)
