Like the NES Power Glove on Steroids

Way back in 1989, long before today’s Wii-mote and the SIXAXIS motion sensing controllers, Mattel launched their rather silly looking, but ahead-of-its-time Power Glove controller for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now, Immersion Corporation is offering a modern update to the concept with their CyberGlove II Wireless Data Glove.

Immersion CyberGlove II Wireless Data Glove

Immersion’s new controller is capable of precisely sensing palm, wrist, arm and individual finger movements and sending that data to a computer (via a 3D tracking device) to either record movements or to control software applications. The glove can interact with their optional software for 3D manipulation of objects in virtual space, or can be programmed to work with custom-developed software through Immersion’s VirtualHand SDK.

Unlike the old NES Power Glove, however, this glove isn’t designed for consumers or casual gamers, rather for use by 3D animators, product designers and for medical and military training applications.
