Raspberry Pi Judd Treat Machine!

How do you combine physical computing, metal fabrication and Vizsla’s?

WIth an automatic dog treat machine! A RaspberryPi based machine that uses a DC gearmotor, servo, LCD and webcam to dispense dog treats! A python script monitors Judd’s email address. When you email Judd, he’ll get treats! In return, the Python script tells the Raspberry Pi to take a picture which Python then emails back to you as a thank you!

A video walking through the CAD design in Alibre and the physical machine design!


NOTE: The original files for this project were lost in a site revamp. Thingiverse user Waltermixxx has created his own version of the project based on the original Judd Treat Machine, and the slightly modified code and files are available here.
