The Power of Glove is a documentary that chronicles the history and legacy of the Power Glove, a 1989 Nintendo controller that promised to forever change the way humankind interacted with technology. The Power Glove was the first mass-marketed, gesture-based video game controller, and its hype was immense. Upon its release, gamers were disappointed and critics panned it as a worthless gimmick. Yet more than two decades later, dedicated fans continue to repurpose the Power Glove for art pieces, hacking projects, electronic music, and more.
