The Power Glove is a controller accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the first peripheral interface controller to recreate human hand movements on a television or computer screen in real time.
The Power Glove sold over 100,000 units in the U.S. since its release in 1989. Its gross sales totaled $88 million. The games that were especially made for the Power Glove sold poorly and the Power Glove itself was a critical and commercial failure.
The Power Glove was prominently shown off in the Nintendo-produced film The Wizard, memorably wielded by antagonist Lucas Barton (Jackey Vinson), whose smug boast, “I love the Power Glove. It’s so bad!” became an internet meme years later.No Comments
