" 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.
"

The Power Glove is one of those awesome devices in gaming history that is more awesome in concept than in practice. Not to say your can't repurpose it for much now, but I never really found it useful in any of the games I owned as a kid. That said, I am really interested in watching the documentary as I really do appreciate owning my own Power Glove and love the lore and history of it all. I wonder if they will interview Lucas from The Wizard? Time will tell.
