Now You're Playing With Power: Nintendo Power Glove Modded To Control Drone With Hand Gestures

June 9, 2016

This is a video demonstration at the recent Bay Area Maker Faire of the Power Glove that Nolan Moore modded to control a quadrocopter using different hand gestures. Pointing up and down controls altitude, fist clench and tilt controls roll and pitch, and finger point and twist for yaw. No word what it'll do if you pretend to play air guitar or masturbate, but it better self-destruct in a fiery explosion if you flip it off.

Hit the jump for the brief video demo.

Thanks to Marc, who modded an autonomous drone to control a Power Glove and it made him punch himself in the head until he passed out. Then it tried to choke him. Never trust an autonomous robot.

    Remember to capture or kill drones in your area before they get a foot hold and multiply. This is one invasive species that needs to be stopped.
