In the past few months, we have covered plenty of cool educational robots and robotics kits. The Ziro Hand-Controlled Robotics Kit comes with everything you need to build and control robots using hand gestures. You can use pre-made kits or build your own custom robots. Ziro has a modular design. The smart gloves included let you use hand gestures to animate your creations.
To get started, attach Ziro modules to animate your creations. The smartphone app lets you configure the modules. iOS and Android devices are supported. You can order the starter and pro kits here.
