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.
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)
