A startup company has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the development of Bistro, an automated cat feeder…that recognizes your cat’s FACE!
Facial recognition technology is commonplace with humans, but this appears to be a novel application with animals. Novel and quite popular!
The fundraising campaign sought $100,000 for development, but quickly eclipsed that goal. They are currently approaching $250,000 in donations. And if they reach THAT goal, they are adding a cam & speaker to the automated cat feeder so that you can see and talk to your cat from where you are when it comes to the automated feeder.
What a brilliant concept – and what a great success story for crowdfunding! To see Bistro’s Indiegogo campaign, click here.
