CUFF.Docs - The Power of Glove

Part of the documentary film festival.

IT’S SO BAD. THE POWER OF GLOVE is a documentary that chronicles the history and legacy of the Power Glove, a Nintendo controller that promised to forever change the way humankind interacted with technology. Originally released by Mattel, the Power Glove was the first mass-marketed, gesture-based video game controller, and the hype was immense.

It didn’t work out. Gamers were disappointed by the Power Glove, and critics panned it as a worthless gimmick. But the Power Glove has not been simply swept under the rug. Over two decades after its release, the Power Glove continues to resonate with video gaming and technology fans, becoming the focus of art pieces, songs, videos, hacking projects, and other forms of cultural re-purposing.

Director Andrew Austin in attendance for a post screening Q&A.
