The Microbot Push is a wireless robotic button that allows you to operate all kinds of regular switches and buttons remotely.

Developed by South Korean startup Naran, the Microbot Push allows users to incorporate old-school devices into the Internet of Things. The device consists of a pair of tiny boxes which attach to the surface near a button or switch. The devices can be programmed to activate a button under specific conditions.

What's fascinating about the Microbot Push is that it looks to take home technology and automation forward without leaving behind legacy devices such as good old-fashioned light switches and buttons on everything from lamps to microwaves. This device allows these devices -- which are timeless for a reason -- to be hooked onto home automation.
