It’s been barely over a month since we came across the Ind Creations automatic frozen fish food feeder (IF4). While we are keenly aware that this particular invention has a long development road ahead of it, last weekend we were treated to seeing this machine in real life at the Rod’s Food MACNA booth.
It’s going to be at least a year until the Ind Creations is ready for commercial release but it was super nice to not have to use only our imagination to understand the size and mechanics of how this automatic frozen fish food feeder is going to work. The Ind Creations IF4 is essentially a tall rectangle which separates into two parts, and is connected to a controller screen.
The top half is reserved for the fan and thermo-electric cooling unit, while the bottom half is where the frozen food is kept cold and a small motor advances the carousel to drop food into the aquarium. Different shaped carousels will allow users to adjust how much is fed into the aquarium at one time, further allowing some control over how many times (and days) the food can be dispensed.
It’s quite rare that we get to see an exciting and brand new device like the Ind Creations IF4 so early in its development but having seen it in the flesh makes it so much easier to conceptualize how well it might work if and when it is finally released.
