We may still be waiting for hoverboards, but for now, The Microchip Activated Pet Feeder ($80) has placated us. We truly feel like we're living in the future now that teeny microchips are being used for something as commonplace as feeding our pets. How does it work? Your kitty and/or pup wears a special tag that interacts with the feeder dish. When the tag is in range, it opens the feeder for your pet(s) and shuts it again when they walk away. It seems like a great solution for pets who overeat, or households with different furbabies who compete for every last morsel of kibble.
