The Power Glove is a controller accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the first peripheral interface controller to recreate human hand movements on a television or computer screen in real time. The Power Glove wasn't popular and was criticised for its imprecise and difficult-to-use controls. The Power Glove laid the foundation for the Wii Remote controller for the Wii console. The Power Glove was prominently shown off in the Nintendo-produced film The Wizard, memorably wielded by antagonist Lucas Barton (Jackey Vinson), whose smug boast, "I love the Power Glove. It's so bad!" became an internet meme years later.
