Sometimes it seems like cats are just waiting for the day when they don't even have to pretend to like humans for a food reward, and that time might be at hand with Catspad. It's a smart cat feeder which just debuted at CES, and it looks a bit like this:
It's also pretty useful for those humans who are indifferent to their cats, with a reserve of food and water that could last up to a month. The unit is een able to detect which animal draws near by sensing an embedded chip, so you can find out how much chow a specific feline has swallowed.
It also ensures the water is fresh and delicious and will let you know when anything is running low via a connected app. This product is set to launch on Kickstarter on the 5th of January and you can keep up with all the news right here.
