The Power Glove was the quirkiest little peripheral ever devised for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Although if found only limited use on that platform, modern day tinkers with access to cheap and simple microcontrollers can now turn these 25-year-old video game artifacts into futuristic wearables.
Why yes, I would use the Power Mitt, which is not the superhero alter-ego of a certain Massachusetts-based former presidential candidate, but rather an oven mitt designed to look like Mattel's famous Nintendo peripheral. I would use it to take my cookies out of the oven, and it would rule.
It was supposed to be the first part in turning yourself into a bad-ass cyborg. An artifact from the glorious gaming future that we couldn’t live inside of yet. Sure, you can laugh at it now but you know you wanted a Power Glove back in the day.
Clearly, every superhero needs a power glove. Or something.
Get a cup of tea, a biscuit or two and settle in for ten minutes worth of Nintendo Power Glove propaganda, courtesy of the official VHS cassette guide to the peripheral.

Know what makes Halko Momoi so damn cool? It's not only that she changed her first name's spelling because of 2001's HAL 9000 and the Nintendo game maker, Hal. It's not only that she does voice acting for a bunch of games and anime or that she records saccharine music.
thrash power-metal cover of/homage to the theme from 1989's Batman (and The Animated Series) would be badass. A thrash power-metal music video done in the style of a 1990s side-scroller would be awesome. Both put together are more badass awesome than the sum of their awesome badass parts.
