Ben and Karen revisit retro gaming tech with one of the first wearable controllers, Mattel's Nintendo Power Glove. This repetitive-strain inducing NES gamepad needs to be updated -- time to hack the op amps and custom micro-controller with an oscilloscope to find out how it works! Also in this episode, Felix works on remote-controlling robots. Lastly, the team needs your help for the Hackmanji board game. Share your ideas and questions on the element14 Community page.
