I'd like to be able to make an internet controlled animal feeder to be able to dispense a range of foods like shelled peanuts, small nuts, or kibbles.
But there one main problem I'm running into, and thats figuring out what sort of feeding mechanism to use. It is preferable that it has low power draw, and also cheap.
Most importantly it needs to not clog or jam. And also it needs to be very controlled. I don't want to just open a solenoid and dump a ton out, I'd like to just dispense small bits at a time. Trying to find something that will dispense only small bits, while at the same time not worrying about it getting jammed is a problem that's baffling me.
