This is a relatively simple ball launcher for a dog to operate on its own.
Still work in progress and i plan to create a detailed set of build instructions.

    is it the same as the Fetch-O-Matic that was shown how to make it on MAKE? http://makezine.com/projects/Fetch-O-Matic/#.UFFjZY1lRSk

    Yea, after seeing the Fetch-O-Matic i was inspired to make something similar. I took some ideas from a clay Bird launcher of my dads as well which in principle has the same mechanics. And then just put it together using parts i could find around the farm.

    How fun! I love how your dog just knows what's coming when your kid puts the ball in :) I look forward to seeing the directions!
