With this photonics toolkit, you will build a DIY-remote-control-glove. By bringing two fingers together, you could command a robot to stop, go or change directions. You'll learn to implement electronic components and drive them using Arduino.

At the same time, you'll learn about infrared technology. This project is designed for students aged between 15 and 18.
