In the age of self-driving cars, delivery drones and digital assistants, technology is changing everything. For some, it is making everyday tasks easier and saving time. For others, it is opening doors and improving lives.  

The Exo-Glove Poly is a robotic glove that assists people with limited hand mobility. Developed by researchers at the SNU Biorobotics Lab, the glove mimics natural hand motions and allows users to grip and pinch physical objects. The glove and motor are also waterproof, allowing users to wash their hands or brush their teeth with ease. You can watch a video of the Exo-Glove Poly in use:
