I suspect it is limited. Any time you move to quantity, you end up designing a specific system for your need. It is more cost effective. I can't imagine multi thousand scale runs of a product with the Raspberry Pi crammed inside.

@selinz See my comment in this thread. I emailed Judd, and he replied that the system isn't working. Maybe the barrage of emails was so massive that the owner had to shut it off temporarily, for Judd to recover.

Hi Judd:

i would like to invite you and your owner to present at DESIGN West 2014 in San Jose March 31-April 3. Our attendees would love a talk on using Python to program the Raspberry Pi and the snack feature would be a great demo.  K

This is cute on its surface. But I love dogs and -- not to sound like an extremist -- I think it is, perhaps, a bit cruel to tie treats to emails.  First, if he gets none, the dog would feel punished for no reason. Second, if he gets too many, the dog would grow obese because dogs instinctively eat and eat when food is available. 

However, I have a modest proposal to offer as alternative: perhaps the clever inventor would want to tie his own diet to the delivery of emails? No emails, no dinner.

Not to end on a total downnote, I'll share a story about my pup. Our neighbors in the redwood forest include a family of ravens. Ravens and dogs have a relationship going back tens of thousands of years, and dogs can understand ravens when they talk (Ravens have about 30 "words," ranging from "hungry" to "danger" to "dinner time.")  I've come to recognize some of the sounds myself, which is helpful for avoiding coyotes or other predators.

In a movie on a DVD last night, a sound effect had ravens making their "Danger!" call, and my dog promptly ran out of the house and began barking to warn others.  He settled down only after we convinced him it was only a movie.

@kfield, Awww. Poor dog. Pavlov would be proud. I wonder if we're the subjects of this Pavlovian experiment, though. Speaking of, NobelPrize.org has a Pavlov's dog video game to play while you wait for the Judd's owner to upgrade his webcam.

Judd is a sad dog today

I emailed Judd the dog today, who was featured in Slide 9 of this slideshow - a device his owner built that gives the dog a treat everytime someone emails the dog. This is the text in the email I received from Judd, and photo:

"Terrible News!  The USB webcam is not working reliably anymore.  I am going to ask my owner to upgrade to the new Raspberry Pi Camera!  Woof Woof!  Maybe the attached photo will convince him? "

@Betajet: Do you think volume commercial systems will use RasPi as a basis? Why or why not? Or is it limited to the DIY hobbyist market?

Yeah, I think a class or booth where they can try one out and connect it to a few things might be fun. Many people haven't had a chance to play with one at all yet, they've only seen them in the news.
