ICYMI: Eye exams go DIY and smartfeeding your pets
Today on In Case You Missed It: A new device can calculate people’s eyeglass prescriptions without needing to see an optometrist, though whether that’s actually responsible or not is up to you. Meanwhile a cloud-connected smart petfeeder that suffered from downed servers had to send a notice to owners to feed their pets manually, since the machines lost all connection and didn’t release food.
There’s a lot to talk about this week but we recommend reading up on NOAA’s three month weather outlook, since everyone will be talking about the DNC this weekend anyway. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
