Pet-feeding goes remote, and social

A revolutionary new invention means pet owners can now feed their animals when they're away - by smartphone.

Carlos Herrera has developed a wireless pet-feeder that owners can control from their handset to ensure their animals never miss a meal.

Called the Pintofeed, it not only dispenses food either on schedule or by phone command, but also monitors your pet and sends alerts.

Owners can be updated on their pet's feeding routine by text, email, Facebook or Twitter message.
