Released back in 1989, the Power Glove was a motion-control accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The concept: wave your hand, and stuff on-screen would move. Fun!
Except it wasn't fun. The Power Glove was critically despised for being difficult to use, and sold next to no units. Only two games were designed to work with it. All we have now are the memories and the dated commercials. And, soon, a documentary.
You see, the Power Glove didn't quite die back in 1989. A semi-ironic cult fascination with the glove sprang up, and people are hacking it to this day: for music, engineering, and once again, for gaming. The indie flick The Power of Glove will feature interviews with the glove's creators, as well as with those second-wave users giving it a come-back.
Interesting! You can read some more about it here.
Did the power glove already have a documentary? Wasn't it a 1989 flim called The Wizard?
@CalmlyBallistic, "California" - Ah yes, The Wizard. I remember that movie fondly...
In space, no one can hear a tree fall in the forest.
This would make an excellent remote for a UAV. I'm going to try it out.
Nintendo, my little brother is handicapped and cannot use his left side real well because he had a stroke while he was in my mom's stomach. He loves playing videogames, but he can't play them real well because of his lack of control in his left hand. If you guys could make something similar to this power glove for the wii u that'd be great!! I would be forever grateful if you guys could do something like that!!!
