Linux Powered Kitten Feeder
This couple seemed to be worried that their cats were not being fed treats whilst they were at work, so they did the logical thing - created a linux box with a web-enabled microcontroller connected to a mechanical feeding device. The description of how to make one of these yourself is very thorough, but I don't think i'll be trying it anytime soon. If you want to feed the lovely little kittens then head here.
control = Feeder()
print "Thanks for feeding the kittens!"
