Wii Power Glove: You Gotta See It To Believe It

A Japanese geek has created a Nintendo Power Glove and Wii-mote controller combination that offers some rare robot-inspired Do-It-Yourself fun.

The original Power Glove was a controller accessory designed by a team in Japan and eventually released in the US and Japan in the late '80s. It was apparently the first peripheral interface controller to recreate human hand movements on a television or computer screen. Of course, the Wii-mote is the much-talked about controller for the Nintendo Wii, which was released in 2006. The Wii-mote allows players to wirelessly control games by swinging the device when playing games like Wii tennis, bowling or boxing.

The Wii Power Glove brings the fun of the two devices, but also takes away from some of the Wii-mote's coolest swinging/remote qualities. I must say I wouldn't turn down the opportunity to test it out, although I wish the creator would have left the Wii-mote its sleek original color instead of painting it black.
