Power Glove granted infinitely more power, bluetooth, and accelerometer in honor of 20th birthday
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Nintendo PowerGlove, and yes, birthday cakes are in order. To celebrate, game designer Matt Mechtley has augmented it with Bluetooth and accelerometer chips for a more modern take on the hand peripheral -- think of it as a more assimilated version of the Wiimote-embedded glove we covered in 2006. If you're interested in following in his footsteps, instructions are available at Instructables and in the video form after the break -- jump to 10:50 if you want to see it in action both with a test program and a brief glimpse at virtual boxing.
