Hardware hacking: VCR cat feeder, boot fetish Pong console

What fun.

See the BBC video (story here) of Dorkbot enthusiast James Larsson where he shows off his VCR cat feeder (dispenses food at the time the VCR’s been set to).

The cat's shown at the start and, err, the demo is at 03.08 if anyone wants to know, of a kinky boot fetish Pong game where the onscreen players are made to go up and down by groping and fondling leather boots (seriously) – and if you miss a point you get punished by a motorised whip (severity level adjustable)!

James Larsson and his inventions have also been featured in the New York Times and Wired.
