This is as neat an example of applied technology as I’ve seen in a long time.
very, very, nifty!
I saw that in Weird Earls a while back, sent it to Bill, since as a geeky enginerd I though he’d enjoy it. One of the most ingenious things I’ve seen in a long time.
Though your title is a bit deceptive…it’s a computer controlled cat DOOR. A computer controlled cat would be a very cool thing too, perhaps even cooler than the cat door; it would make a lot of cat owners’ lives a lot easier, that’s for sure.
Oh yeah, like that would make life easier…
Hon, can you boot the cat again? It just GPF’ed again… all over the rug.
And it would give the linux users one more thing to feel superior about -
Well, I just recompiled my kitty-kernel and it’s totally GPL compliant!
Last but not least, this means my parents couldn’t own a cat.
- Hi dear, it’s mom. That stupid cat has stopped working again and is making funny noises. oh! oh! I hate these things… *
That’s so cool! I totally am going to get one of these when I own my first house… and my first cat.
Ah well, at least it would give us the illusion of control. We don’t even have that now.
Yep, I’d like a computer-controlled cat too. It might still byte , but at least she couldn’t scratch.
