With all the buzz around VR and AR these days, you would think that this is a completely new concept. Yeah... no... I stumbled upon the Nintendo Power Glove while perusing the internet for cool wearable devices. It's a discontinued VR gaming glove made by Mattel in 1989. It looked cool, but didn't take off. It was discontinued the following year in 1990.
