To all the die-hard gamers, basement dwellers, vintage game enthusiasts and stuck-in-the-90s kids: this one's for you. We teamed up with Do317 to design this fine piece of nostalgia, a tribute to the first commercial attempt at an interactive, hand-gestured controller for Nintendo. We used a two-color, plastisol based print on a gray Bella Canvas tee for this shirt.
Wait what's a Power Glove again?
Released in 1989, the Power Glove received some of the most hype of any controller (or console for that matter) on the market at the time. Unfortunately, users soon discovered that Nintendo was perhaps a little too ahead of its time. The Power Glove gameplay proved clunky and awkward, eventually leading to a steep downfall of sales. As dramatically as it came, the Power Glove critically failed at it's main function. In its place we have a lasting icon and reminder of what was and what could have been.
