Weirdness: Pick Up a Power Mitt for Awesome Motion Controlled Kitchen Work
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
It's so... bad, by which we mean cool
Ah, the Power Glove, it's so bad.
When it made its high-profile appearance in The Wizard with the infamous line, it was during a confusing Michael Jackson-inspired fad where 'bad' actually meant 'cool', which is about as logical as the idea of wearing a glove to play games. Still, it's an iconic example of the range of rubbish but strangely charming accessories that graced the NES, and is more loved than many controllers that are infinitely more useful for actually playing games.
And so Fangamer, a site that creates and sells various gaming pop-culture treats, has come up with the ultimate kitchen accessory, the Power Mitt. Now you can cook with power, look rad and all sorts of late '80s/early '90s-type things. It kind of reminds us of an awesome extra in BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien — you should go and find that, by the way — and also wins a metaphorical prize for cheesiest advert of 2013, which you can check out below.
