Creating an automatic cat laser with Arduino

When it comes to cats, one thing is for certain: They love countless hours of laser chasing. Unfortunately, as a pet owner, there is only so much time in the day to spend twirling around a pointer catering to its innate prey drive. That is why a Maker by the name of Joe recently devised the CatBot, an automated cat laser.
