Storyline

1989. In an era of Nintendo-mania, toymaker giant Mattel unleashes a bold technological experiment to an eager public. The POWER GLOVE: the first video game controller that allows players to operate Nintendo games with intuitive hand gestures. Despite immense hype surrounding its release, the product is a critical failure, disappointing thousands of children with its subpar gameplay. More than two decades later, however, dedicated fans continue to repurpose the Power Glove for art pieces, hacking projects, electronic music, and more. For the first time ever: the story behind the world's most notorious video game controller. Written by Adam Ward

Definitely NOT "so bad"
20 January 2020 | by turbotracks-70807See all my reviews

One of the better, and possibly one of the best product documentaries I've ever watched. The great balance of nostalgia and information kept me engaged throughout the entirety of the production.
