An automated cat feeder seems like it would be a handy thing to have when you're away from home for a time—unless you have multiple cats and one of them happens to be particularly greedy.

The Bistro is a high-tech cat feeder that offers a remedy to this kind of situation, by integrating facial recognition software that works while a cat is eating. During this time, a cat is also weighed, so that you can be sure a cat is getting just the right amount of food. This is an easy way to track appetite and weight without any additional effort.

The Bistro feeder is now part of an Indiegogo campaign, with a goal of raising $100,000 so that the device can move forward with mass production.
