Dr. Jibran Khokhar at the University of Guelph has modified this sipper device to measure liquid intake in rats.  Really cool!  He also added an eTape liquid level monitor to measure actual intake as well as the number of interactions with the sipper.  He plans to put the full design online soon, but in the meantime here are some photos!
