Arduino powered, web controlled cat toy


An experiment in controlling an Arduino over the web. To give it a practical spin, I quickly assembled a simple toy for my cat.

An user could connect to a website, set the speed of the toy with a simple interface and watch the cat have fun via live streaming.

In a 2.0 version, the Arduino was connected to a proximity sensor andran a script that fired off a tweet whenever the cat was around, toalert potential players.
