The kit is for beginner DIY'ers who want to start building robotics but think its to complicated to make cool projects right off the bat.
When you get the kit you simply solder the components on to the PCB and connect the servos ( which are connected to the hand ) and plug in the flex sensors ( which are on the glove ).
After it's all done and over you calibrate the sensors ( bend your fingers all the way close and open them ), after you calibrate the sensors you end up with a cool robot which shadows you just like from real steel :) but just a bit less cooler.
Also it is based on the popular arduino platform so if you have an arduino already just connect reset of arduino to reset on PCB, tx to rx, and rx to tx. So it is easily hackable.
