Telerobotic Gripper Kit
Get a grip with the Telerobotic Gripper Kit from the Maker Shed! This kit includes everything you need to make the Teleclaw featured in MAKE: Volume 27, even the batteries! Assemble the kit and attach it to your robot, rover, or anywhere else you could use an extra hand. The pre-programmed Picaxe microcontroller interprets commands from the IR remote to make the gripper open and close. Have a look at the Make: Projects build for more information and directions.
