Power Glove

The Power Glove remains an iconic part of Nintendo history, an accessory that was hugely visible in the NES era and beyond. It promised much with motion controls, and famously failed to deliver.

Its visual and cultural appeal at the time can't be denied, however, and to this day we see accessories and mods that keep it alive. One of the most functional mods, however, was created by stop-motion animator Dillon Markey, who counts Robot Chicken among his clients; they produced Nintendo's Digital Event show at E3, though Markey didn't work on that particular product.

He decided to utilise the Power Glove as a wireless receiver to speed up his work, allowing him to capture frames on his recording unit while staying near the puppets for animation. It's simple but brilliant.

You can check out the video below, but be warned there's one instance of swearing when he shows off the 'fist bump' feature that he added to the glove.
