IoT Laser Cat Toy: A laser toy that may be activated remotely or at home using Google Assistant
One summer, I decided to vacation in Chile two weeks. After booking a sitter to check on and feed my cat, I realized that I would want to check in on the cat remotely. I setup an Android phone to automatically answer a Skype call so that I may see if the cat is doing well. However, I knew that he would not come to the phone easily. Therefore, with a week before the trip, I designed this toy so that I could play with him remotely while checking in on him. The toy was so successful that I continue to use it to play with the cat to this day!
