Pintofeed Lets You Feed Your Pet, Even If You're Far Away
Is there anything you can't connect nowadays to your smartphone? A new, Pasadena-based startup, Pintofeed, has just raised over $50,00 in crowdfunding for its smartphone-connected pet feeder, which connects to your iPhone, Android, or Windows 8 device. Pintofeed said that its intelligent pet feeder will let users control the feeding of their pets--even if they're across the world, via its smartphone application. Pintofeed has started taking reservations for its device, which has not yet been released. The company said its software will monitor and automate your pet's feeding times; monitor your pet's actual food intake; and provide that information via Twitter and Facebook. Pintofeed did not saw when it expects to make its device available to users for purchase.
