As far as cat feeders go, Bistro is a leading design. It incorporates facial recognition technology in an attempt to inform pet owners about the eating and drinking habits of their feline friends. Since people take care of cats in very different ways compared to dogs, this is helpful in understanding their routine in a more in-depth level.

designed by Mu-Chi Sung, the Bistro cat feeders not only record their daily routine, it also transmits a live video feed that can be watch on the owner's smartphone through the use of the accompanying Bistro app. This same app also measures and charts the cat's consumption so that people can easily recognize any strange behavior and more.
