If you’re a nerd like me you’ll already know what the Nintendo Power Glove is, if not here’s a brief reminder – The Power Glove was a controller for the original Nintendo Entertainment System that came out in 1989. The idea was that it could use hand gestures to control gameplay. It was a semi-cool idea that never took off, but managed to gain a niche as a retro must have item. It holds a certain place in peoples hearts as an idea way ahead of its time that didn’t quite know what to do with itself, but these days has taken on new life as modders hack the tech to produce music and art.
The Power Of Glove is a new documentary that chronicles the peripherals development, its place in pop culture and just how this alluring piece of kit from gaming history is viewed by many across the world today.
