Power Glove controls new video games

Arduino Fun & Games

Matt Mechtley is gearing up for Maker Faire, where he’ll be showing his updated Nintendo Power Glove (with Arduino and Bluetooth, or course). He writes:

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on some improvements and extensions to my Power Glove 20th Anniversary Edition. On the tech side of things, I replaced the ugly 9V battery I was using with a low-profile, rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery. I’ve updated the steps in the Instructable with new pictures and instructions.

As a bonus for Maker Faire attendees, I’ve finished adding Power Glove support to our most popular Blurst game, Off-Road Velociraptor Safari! I recorded a demo video to show it off.
