We all know “Necessity is the mother of invention”, well it is proved by 30 years old IT consultant name Nat Morris, who spends a lot of time working away from home and isn’t always able to feed four-year-old Toby by hand, in a result he has rigged up an extraordinary way to feed his border terrier Toby a ‘tweet treat’ by sending him a Twitter message to @FeedToby.

Nat has set up electronic system, when ever Nat sends a message to ‘@FeedToby’ , Toby get snakes through automatic food dispenser, using this he can feed his dog from anywhere in the world, isn’t it awesome ?

As explained by dailymail this is how The Twitter Feeder Works:

When a message is sent to @feedtoby it is received by a mini-computer known as a Nanode microcontroller. This is linked up to little motor taken from a household printer HP Deskjet 500.When the mini-computer receives the message, the buzzer goes off and Toby comes running over and sits beneath a tube under his feeder contraption.Then the motor comes to life and pulls open a trap door which releases a serving of food.The doggy treat then comes dropping down the tube and into Toby’s food bowl.Then a digital camera then takes a photo of him and sends it back to Nat on Twitter – so he knows Toby has been fed.
