Looking for an automatic, random, hide-able cat feeder?

We have two cats
that are growing older at the same time we're become less tolerant of their constant crying for food. I would like to feed them with 3 hockey puck style containers that each open at some random time within 24 hours of being closed and placed randomly around the house.

The idea is to encourage the cats to spend more time being active "forging" for food and would de-link us from their feeding so we could spend more time on pleasant interactions and less time tripping over them.
I'm sure someone else has thought of this but I haven't found anyone selling a suitable product. The single serving size at a time is important, the automatic part is important and the random part is important. It can be battery or spring powered. Surely someone else has already thought this up and is selling them but I haven't had any luck finding them. Any thoughts?
