13 Year Old Invents an Internet-enabled dog treat dispenser

icpoochIf you’re a dog owner and have ever felt bad about leaving Fido, Otis or Buster at home alone, here’s a new technology just for you.

Meet the iCPooch, an Internet-enabled device powered by a Raspberry Pi computer that allows dog owners to video chat with their pups and automatically deliver a dog treat from afar.

Spokane venture capitalist Tom Simpson pointed out this amazing contraption and the inspiring Spokane 9th grader, Brooke Martin, who invented it. Martin actually pitched the concept at a Startup Weekend event in Spokane last year, getting a standing ovation. The newly-formed company has already added a full-time CEO, tech industry vet James Pelland, filed for patents and raised a bit of cash from Simpson and others. It also recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, looking to raise $75,000. (The campaign, which started last month, has topped $6,000).
