This seems pretty neat and for those with multiple cats it could be worth it to you. The story behind how it came about is sad but hopefully this will help some other cat.
"Sung is the co-founder of Bistro, a smart cat feeder that has the power to recognize your feline’s face in order to distribute and then track its food intake. It can also tell your cats’ faces apart to prevent jerky tendencies of stealing the food that is rightly their brethren’s.
But the endeavor, by Sung’s Taiwanese company 42ARK, isn’t for cat vanity’s sake.
'I have three cats, and how I fed them was I put the food in the bowl and had no idea what they’re eating,' says Sung, who didn’t realize his cat Momo stopped eating food due to illness until he found her dehydrated and paralyzed on the floor of his house. The jaundiced cat was suffering from pancreatitis, and while things were looking dire for Momo, the amputation of her two rear legs saved her life."
