I'm always too lazy to feed my turtle or i forgot it, so i decide to make this simple feeder.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need:
- Some arduino
- Empty box from feed
- Piece of plexiglass
Step 2: Preparing Parts
You need to make hole with knive and lighter. It must be sufficiently large so granules may fall trught.
Holder from plexiglass is very easy to make, it need only to warm with lighter, if you can see little bubbles in that glas it prepare to bent, if you bend it, wait several sec to make it hard.
So you can glue everything together. I used second glue and hot glue gun for sure.
If you glue box to servo, meke sure, that the hole is up, and if turn 180 deg it will down
Step 3: Arduino Program
In future I want to use RealTimeClock module to set feeding time. I have one RTC module, but it doesn't work, so I must wait to arrive second one.
