Trying to think of what i would like to make as a final project. I looked what problem do i have that i could use this opporunity to solve my problem. Last year I build a Fish tank , which came out very beautiful . The problem i had was that i would forget to feed the fish, and when i went on holiday i had to buy special vacation food , which actually makes the tank dirty. This is my opportunity to make a Automatic pet feeder for my fish tank. it would be a great project for my Fab academy but also sort out my problem at home for my fish when i go on holiday.
I have actually not much of an idea of how my end product would look like, but I know that it had to have a chamber to store the food, then a dispenser to dispence the correct amount of food. the dispenser should be controlled by a circuit board which will control a motor that would turn and allow a specified amount of food to dispense.Puting these thoughts togteher I have justed sketched a thought of my fish food feeder.As the weeks go I would be able to use research and ideas to fully conceptualise my project and hopefully manage to realise it at the end of the course.
