The Flo Control Project
Now here's a good use of technology: The Flo Control Project. The guy's using a digital camera hooked to a computer to take a picture of his cat Flo on the way into the house. If the picture compares favorably with a picture on file, then the cat's door is unlocked. If the cat is carrying a mouse or a bird or other present, or if the cat at the door isn't really the cat, then the door remains locked. This is very cool stuff, and the web site gives a very good explanation of how it works. Well worth the read.
