Using a glove or suit to control the actions of a robot isn't something new. Heck, the Jaegers in Pacific Rim are based on something in real life, but this guy took it one step further. His control suit is made out of nothing but LEGOs, an Android App and an Arduino.
On the site LEGO Ideas (formally known as CUUSOO), there is a project attempting to get a LEGO Metroid set made. If the project reaches 10,000 supporters, LEGO will consider turning it into a product. Check it out and support here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/61357
