Remote Dog Treats

We are proud to announce that B|P will be leveraging its experience in remote research to expand into Remote Robotic Dog Treat Dispensers. Working with Lego, or actually, working with the toy robot kit we bought from Lego, Nate and Mike built this little robotic arm that receives IM’s with the word “treat” and then dispenses a small treat to the office dog.

You’ll soon be able to IM the wild pooch a treat and watch it on our office webcam.  The venerable Make zine picked it up, and you can check out the video below! We know what you’re thinking, and no, it’s not clear to anyone at the office why we built this, either.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Wonderful blog!

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!


  48. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have created some nice methods and we are looking to exchange solutions with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.


  49. So I created a secondary blog off my first one, but I now want my secondary blog to be my personal or my main blog. So that as soon and I sign on the newer blog I made would be my default blog. If that makes any sense… Is there a way to do this?.
