Nibbles app

Toronto startup wants to feed your pet via smartphone

Why shouldn't you and your cat have brunch at the same time? A new Toronto start up knows that when little Elizabeth Taylor-Muffins-Funnicula-Georange-Spike wants to eat, they're not only more likely to wake you up mid hangover, they're also going to start cruising for other things to snack on, like those vintage kicks you just scored in the market. Working late? Random hook up? Mini-vacation? Nibbles' smart pet feeder lets your pet to keep its routine no matter what, via your smartphone.

The Nibbles box, aka holy giver of snacks, can store up to thirty cups of food, dispensed via smartphone or on a set schedule. You can also watch your pet via Nibbles' camera, and record videos of how cute they are / how much trouble they're getting up to (evidence). What happens when Fido decides to mark his territory on Nibbles? I'm unsure. If you're out of town, please make sure a friend has a spare key and stops by to check on your lonely pet. There's no app for snuggles, y'all.

You can donate to Nibbles' Kickstarter page here, where $179 gets you an early adopter discount on the machine.
