Synthglove: Nintendo Power Glove as Midi Controller

by


Got a spare Nintendo Power Glove sitting around? Why not do something cool with it like turning it into a modern musical instrument?

That’s what synth hacker Denkitribe did when he rewired an old Famicom/NES Power Glove to control an Arduino-based controller circuit. The Arduino translates finger movements into MIDI CC messages, which in turn control a digital synthesizer. Want to hear what it sounds like? Then check out this video clip…

The initial prototype still uses the old-school ultrasonic microphone sensors from the original Power Glove, but Denkitribe plans on eventually upgrading the glove to use modern accelerometer technology. But once he does that, I doubt he’ll be able to play any more Super Glove Ball or Bad Street Brawler anymore. Oh, the things we do in the name of hacking.

    Hah. I’ve seen plenty of better fakes. The time slip kinda gives it away. Good luck getting laid with this vid, ashcock.
