"A few weeks after we got our puppy, we taught her how to turn on a light. Turns out Kaira will do just about anything if you can clearly communicate your desires and have a treat in your hand. There’s an Ikea lamp in our bedroom that’s activated by stepping on a floor switch. We started Kaira’s training by placing her paw on the switch, saying “Light,” and giving her a treat. Once she had that down, we’d press down on her paw and withhold the treat until she heard a “click.” Eventually, we got to the point where we could say “Light” from across the room and Kaira would run over and do the job: [video] So let’s say you’ve a dog that can press a button. What could you do with that? Doggy Selfies A couple months after Twilio launched MMS, I was reading through one of Ricky Robinett’s hardware hacking posts and started to wonder if there was a way to get Kaira to send me selfies. Thanks to the Arduino Yun, the answer to that question is a resounding “Yes!” [video] What you’re seeing in the video is a cigar box that houses a massive arcade button and an Arduino Yun. The second cigar box merely serves as a stand for the webcam that’s plugged into the Yun. (My local cigar shop sells empties for $2 — they make for sturdy and stylish enclosures for your hardware projects)."
