Nintendo Power Glove Controling a Drone

This repurposed Nintendo Power Glove allows users to control drones with a flick of the wrist.

Engineering student Nolan Moore described the goal of the Power Glove as "to revamp the 1989 Nintendo Power Glove with modern sensors and wireless communication, giving you the ability to use gesture and motion controls with almost anything you can think of, in style."

Moore reengineered the glove, taking out its original electronic system and replacing it with a home-built one.

Via Wi-Fi, Moore can control a drone by moving his hand. Holding his hand flat, palm facing the ground, makes the drone hover, making a fist and tilting it in any direction affects "pitch and roll" and pointing a finger up or down affects altitude.

Moore is tracking the development of the project on his Hackaday page.
