How To: Keep Your Dog Entertained All Day Long with the Fetch-O-Matic Ball Launcher

Keep Your Dog Entertained All Day Long with the Fetch-O-Matic Ball Launcher

Dogs make great best friends, but anyone who's had one knows they can be the most high-maintenance friend you've ever had. Bathroom breaks, feeding schedules and walks are only the beginning. Even if you make your dog organic treats and teach it neat tricks, it still needs to play. And after that fifth game of fetch, your arm can get pretty tired.

Dean Segovis decided to fix this problem with the Fetch-O-Matic, a contraption that throws the ball for you.

According to Segovis, "it operates on a cordless drill battery, a windshield wiper motor (worm gear reduction/high torque), some wire, and a micro switch."
