They say that the key to creating a great invention is to think of things people need but don’t actually have. In the early 90s, the Clapper made waves because it gave people the power to turn their lights on or off with a simple clap. Sure, the commercials were cheesy, but people loved it. What’s more, it was incredibly useful.

While the Clapper is certainly dated by today’s standards, the convenience isn’t lost on us. In fact, with more household devices and gadgets than ever before, it was only time someone invented a new way to control them.

Cue to MicroBot Push. This nifty little gizmo literally presses buttons and turns switches on for you—so you don’t have to. Simply set a timer for when and how long you want the MicroBot to work, and voila. You can schedule it to turn your coffee on, open the garage door, dim the lights at a specific time every day and more.

Able to press and hold buttons for seconds at a time, this little bot works with rocker switches, push buttons (both protruding and non-protruding), toggle switches and more. It can even work with most touchscreens. With built-in Bluetooth, you simply download the app and let the MicroBot go to work. Set your timer for specific dates and times and enjoy even more flexibility. Note that in order for the system to work the MicroBot needs to be within 100 feet of your smart device.
