“If you’ve ever wanted to control a robot with hand gestures, the Ziro has you covered. This robotics kit lets you manipulate robots by simply moving your fingers, via a smart glove that connects wirelessly to four motorized modules — that means you can have a rolling or flying device. Better yet, you can pair the Ziro Kit with an iOS or Android device, allowing for easy configuration of your robot’s settings. The kits are expected to cost $200 each.”
