Rex + Arduino

I was looking for an idea to make a use of my Arduino..

Last week, some friends of mine just dropped to my place with a fish… For real.
They actually went to a shop to buy some drinks, and they came back with the drinks and a LIVING fish they called “Rex”. Crazy guys..


Now I have to take care of it. It’s really anoying.. I have to feed it every 3 days with exactly 3 balls of fish food.
The thing is I’ll be on a trip for 2 weeks soon enough. So I made a simple fish feeder with my Arduino.
It’s just using one servo motor and some plastic boxes.


It’s rotating every 72 hours to release the food contained in each slot.
