CIID, Design playground

Project update 5 …. Experiment in symbiosis 1 :

The experiment in testing a posible symbiotic relationship (above) and what it’s supposed to do (below)

Thats the setup on my desk (below) at CIID , where I have the device talking to twitter (sending messages to the owners account and looking for his activity) via processing. which is then communicating to the arduino, controlling the feeder mechanism.  A webcam attached to the stem of the ‘Poet’ , functions as an eye and looks down at the fish in the bowl.

It took me a couple of days to craft the feeding mechanism(as seen below , above the bowl) and its a simple robust system now, which can perhaps store enough feed for a month.
