Meet Jack. Jack works at an office 9 hours a day; he commutes for 2 hours every day, and his cat waiting for him at home… it’s not cool!
This app keeps your pet entertained and exercising while you are not there.
How it works
Randomly generate some activity during day-time hours, that will have your cat or dog try to catch a moving object. The moving object is hanging at the end of a bouncing material controlled by a servo.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A working prototype is available!
What I learned
More work needs to be done to make it an open-source product.
