This is just about the best cat product invention I've ever seen. Inventor Mathew Newton devised this DIY internet-enabled cat feeder, which has a full web interface that lets you control when kibble drops down into the bowls. It even streams a video feed of what's going on at home.

The motor-driven cereal dispenser is controlled by a script Mathew wrote and a Cisco switch. When it's feeding time, he logs in via a web browser and chooses how much kibble he wants to dispense. Alternatively, Mathew can set an automatic dispensing amount and time. How cool is that?

Here's a video explaining the feeder in greater detail:

Okay, who wants to stand in line to buy one?
