Awesome Invention Ideas - Feel free to steal

I have several, although I can only think of two, great invention ideas rolling around in my skull. I think they could potentially make someone a lot of money if you had to drive and money to figure out how to make it work.

Idea #1: Automatic cat feeder. We have a little dog that likes to eat the cat's food. So my theory is to have an automatic feeder that drops food only when the cat comes near it. Like an automatic garage door opener on it's collar or something.

Idea #2: Two-in-one clothes waster/dryer. The way my idea would work is by having a stackable unit, which would limit the size of your loads, but it does all the work so doing more loads would be no big deal. The washer is on top, so you load the clothes in the washer and set both the washer and the dryer. When the washer is done, the whole tub rotates 180 degrees and "dumps" the clothes into the bottom dryer. When the washer tub rotates the other 180 degrees to get back to it's starting point, it triggers a button that starts the dryer. All you have to do is fold and start your next load! You could actually do a whole load of laundry while you're at work. Set it and forget it.

Washer/dryers are already out there, my grandmother had one. And they work a lot simpler than your idea - once the regular wash cycle is done the water's drained and then... it works like a normal tumble dryer.
