The AutoAqua WeCam is unlike any other product that we’ve ever covered, and while its premise may be simple and lighthearted the possibilities for this device are very exciting. Essentially the AutoAqua WeCam is an automatic fish feeder linked up with a webcam that allows users to feed fish remotely while observing their fish on the live webcam feed.
The WeCam itself can actuate about 120 degrees to look from side to side and the feeder itself is quite novel. When activated, the feeder part of the AutoAqua WeCam “spits” pelleted fish food using a small reservoir of compressed air to eject a few pellets at a time across the water surface of the aquarium. The prototypes of the WeCam demonstrated at InterZoo used a third unit containing an air pump to create the reserve of pressurized air but AutoAqua plans to internalize this component into the feeder module when the device is ready for widespread release.
The WeCam will be supported by AutoAqua with easy QR-code setup using either iOS or Android phones making it dead-simple to use and enjoy feeding your fish while watching them on your mobile device. We can’t think of a better way to check in on the condition of your fish when you are away than by feeding them and watching their feeding response in real time. AutoAqua is aiming for a $200 price tag on the camera and a $350 price for the camera with feeder with a launch window later this fall.
