A South Korean startup called Naran has this week revealed that it has developed a series of devices that will transform devices that requires button press’ into something smarter.
Dubbed the Microbot Push they simply stick onto a device above a button and then use a mechanical arm to physically push the button upon your command.
To do this the gadget uses a low-power Bluetooth connection to connect to an internet hub, this will then send commands to these devices that have been sent over an internet connection via your phone, basically transforming any conventional object like a light switch or printer into an IoT product.
Through the app users will also be able to set up automations to allow the buttons to perform actions when a given factor has happened, similar to IFTTT.
At the moment the Microbot Push is only in its starting phase, but the company does plan to launch an Indiegogo campaign for the devices on November 9th.
Until then you can find out more about it at the source link below, where you can also set up a reminder for when the campaign launches.
