Raspberry Pi servo-controlled pet feeder, using a Raspberry Pi Zero and two SG90 servo motors.

This project builds on the servo control code and setup from my previous “Raspberry Pi Servo Motor Control” video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHDT4...

You can download the Python code (and hamster desktop!) for this project from my “Pi Zero Projects” web page here: https://www.explainingcomputers.com/p...

Raspberry Pi Zero boards are often in short supply, but the V 1.3 model is regularly on sale for around $5 from Adafruit in the US: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2885 , or for about £5 from The Pi Hut in the UK: https://thepihut.com/products/raspber... . Note that these are not affiliate links, and that I have no association with these companies.

The plastic sheet I used in this project is known as “plasticard”, and is sold on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk under this name in a variety of thicknesses.
