Controlling a robotic arm to perform real-time tasks can be a real challenge – alternating between a joystick and keyboard. At the LEAP.AXLR8R, Mirror Trainer founder Liz Alessi is using Leap Motion technology to make robotic arms more efficient, natural, and intuitive extensions of our bodies – robots that you could wear like a glove.

The robot arm works smoothly and effortlessly. I’ve put people that have never used it before in the chair. They play with the arm, and they figure it out quickly and easily. I want people to literally use my product as if they’re wearing their own skin.
