Pintofeed is an automated pet feeder. Unlike most automatic feeders on the market, Pintofeed uses wifi to allow you to feed your pets from anywhere in the world.

Pintofeed works with food sized from 1/4″ to 7/8″ pebbles and the 5 or 10 pound repository seals in freshness to keep food from going stale. Video after the jump.
