There are many things that keep cat-lovers from playing with or adopting a cat. Allergies, urbanized lifestyles, cost, and many other things stand in the way of ‘human-pet interaction’. Allergies, urbanized lifestyles and many other things stand in the way of ‘human-pet interaction’. OpenCat offers a alternative solution for this demographic by providing a fun and novel way to interact with the animal.

Open Cat is a networked cat toy which allows people to play with and share their cat over the internet.
Using a web interface people can remotely activate an Arduino based cat toy, allowing them to entertain their feline friend. An ip-camera broadcasts video imagery of the cat playing live in the browser window.

I developed the networking code (Javascript / PHP / CURL / C ) and physical implementation (Arduino / C).
OpenCat was conceived in collaboration with Sveta Suvorina.
