Robotiq Grippers Controlled From Space

At first I thought it was one of the simulations that we usually see in the robotic industry. A bunch of programmers are around a test robot and they are testing a device to verify if it would be viable in space. But this time, it goes one step further. There is actually someone in space that is controlling a rover on earth and what is exciting is that it uses Robotiq Grippers.
