1989 Power Glove Modified into Multirotor Drone Controller #Nintendo

This video of Nolan Moore’s Power Glove Universal HID controller at the recent Bay Area Maker Faire has been making the rounds lately:


 
Any Power Glove hack is immediately amazing. But Nolan went the extra step, or steps rather, and documented and shared his build process here on Hackaday.io, including various sketches, notes, and several prototyping steps until he arrived at the final, clean, fully-encased human interface device:

Hackaday of course did a write-up on the project which sparked the video going viral; hat tip to everyone from The Verge to Engadget to The Next Web for picking up this story and hopefully inspiring another generation of Power Glove hacker-makers!

You can follow Nolan’s project directly here at Hackaday.io.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
