Nintendo Power Glove Music
The Power Glove, originally released in 1989, was designed by Grant Goddard and Samuel Cooper Davis for Abrams/Gentile Entertainment (AGE). That’s right, despite its initial popularity, Nintendo played no part in its development, and Mattel manufactured this NES accessory in the United States. Unlike a traditional controller, this featured the main buttons, a program button and 0-9 keys, all on the forearm. You press t he program button and a numbered button to input commands. However, one fan managed to turn this into a music making machine.



Modder Sam Battle modified a Power Glove into a gesture controller for a modular synthesizer setup. Simply bend your fingers to adjust the filter cutoff, pitch, pulse width and volume. The resulting music is other worldly to put it lightly. To keep things interesting, Sam also made an animatronic hand capable of receiving input from the synth to control the glove.
