It comes with 3M tape that lets you attach it wherever you need it. The package also includes multiple arms that make it compatible with various buttons and switches. It can click on them, press and hold them, control a toggle switch or a rocker one. The arms are also 3D-printable and you get a template so you can design your own.
The bot is an upgrade to the original Fingerbot, which was launched in 2020. The Plus version is more powerful, has a longer moving range, and a bigger battery (800 mAh). The bot has a battery life of up to eight months.
Fingerbot Plus also comes with customized loops support. For instance, you can program it to hit a key on your laptop’s keyboard every five minutes, so that you’ll always appear online at work.
The bot is controlled remotely via a mobile app that you install on your smartphone. You can also couple the device with the Adaprox HomeHub for voice control. It comes with Siri, Alexa, Google Home, and IFTTT support.
The Fingerbot Plus is advertised in a Kickstarter campaign and it’s long reached its $20,000 goal. The device has raised over $145,000 so far, and there are still 23 days left in the campaign.
A FingerBot unit requires a $25 pledge. The estimated delivery date is August 2021.
