A simple smartphone controlled wireless button-pushing robot

"Is this a real thing? Or, an early April Fools?" asks long time friend of Boing Boing, Kent K. Barnes of the Microbot Push.

These Rube Goldberg-ian wireless button-pushers look amazingly handy for all sorts of applications! I imagine Dr. Emmett Brown could find a lot of uses for them.

The MicroBot Push can be controlled via IOS or Android, and works pretty much any place you want to stick a button. At $49 a robot it is pretty expensive, especially as you'll need two for a rocker switch! Regardless, I'm ordering one to play with, it seems too much fun to be true!
