We love the product because it seems to be a perfect representation of whether technology is going in the near future. For example you can use it to wave, grab and even reach.

Thus it is possible to change the instructions and make the controlled item respond to your instructions from a distance.

Those who are initially skeptical about new technology may take their time getting used to this product but we recommend it because it seems to be the future.
