According to Pintofeed Co-Founder and President Carlos Herrera, Pintofeed is looking to raise funds to produce the first batch of product manufacturing through Indiegogo's crowdfunding capabilities.  A portion of funds raised will benefit TheAnimalRescueSite.com and GreaterGood.org, organizations that provide food and care for rescued animals living in shelters and sanctuaries. 

The Pintofeed is the first autonomous pet feeder that offers mobility and remote access for scheduled feedings as well as notifications via SMS and social networks all packaged neatly into an elegant hardware device specifically designed to enhance the look and feel of any home. Additionally, the Pintofeed employs a number of sensors in order to help populate behavioral data and utilizes artificial intelligence techniques to help accurately predict and even adjust pets eating behaviors to enable the healthiest feeding regimen as possible. 

"An estimated 54 percent of dogs and cats in the United States are overweight or obese directly due to overeating," said Herrera.  "One of the main reasons this disturbing trend continues is because the bulk of today's pet owners cannot consistently monitor their pets eating habits.  Pintofeed, with its intelligent programming and remote access capabilities, is a solution that not only improves feeding habits but also fits into pet owner's lifestyles."   

As the world's first intelligent pet feeder, Pintofeed will help pet owners learn and understand exactly what their pets need to maintain a healthy and social lifestyle. The Pintofeed was devised to help ensure pets stay on a healthy diet, while bringing owners the convenience of a true autonomous feeding solution. Since the Pintofeed is WiFi enabled, one can check its status and even control it from any web-enabled devices such as traditional cellphones, smartphones, tablets and laptops. Feeding alerts and reminders can be configured to publish to Facebook, Twitter and SMS for ultimate reassurance. The Pintofeed is easy to set up, exquisitely designed and can be placed anywhere in the home.

During its launch period, prices for Pintofeed will start at $99. Pintofeed is available in blue and a second color option that will be voted on by backers of the project. When it hits stores next year, Pintofeed will retail for $149.

The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for rescued animals living in shelters and sanctuaries. Funding from the Animal Rescue Site is distributed by the independent 501c3 GreaterGood.org.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
