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

The Power Glove is so bad...
16 October 2019 | by abrahamlincolnsfatherSee all my reviews

But the Power OF Glove is actually pretty good. An interesting look into a weird historical video games relic, and it made me wish I was alive for this bright eyed starry time when computers were the new and uncharted thing.
