MicroBot Push 2

The internet of things promises great things. But what if you don’t plan on replacing every existing product in your home with new, connected versions? Try rigging up a MicroBot Push 2 to semi-automate it. So long as there’s a crucial button to press, this compact, robotic button pusher can do it for you and from anywhere. The second-generation device boasts more durable gears than the original and operates more quietly as well, activating on a schedule and working with a variety of integrators including IFTTT, Amazon’s Alexa, WeMo, and many more. So affix one to your Keurig to brew coffee every morning, or fire up a hard-to-reach projector. Its button-presser even works on touchscreens.
