MKME TV is LIVE 24/7!

For some time now I have been working to lay the groundwork for our own networks and community collaboration tools.

Community Update

I thought it time for a quick update and share some things going on with the YouTube channel and MKME Community lately. The last few months have been extremely busy.

Sometime in late Q3/early Q4 2016 you will see this work start…

Fully Automated Cat Feeding with RFID! ?>

Fully Automated Cat Feeding with RFID!

Member of the community Ken sent in his amazing cat feeding station project.  Taking existing commercially available components he was able to fully police his cats eating habits.  Check Ken out on Twitter HERE. From Ken: We have two cats, Gypsy and George. Gypsy likes to over-eat which means that George does not always get as much as he should (Life is never easy with pets). Our solution was to build two cat feeding stations. I was able to get two…
