Lesson Learned from Nintendo’s Power Glove.Posted: September 25, 2009
I was playing Wii Tennis with a friend last week, and randomly thought of the Power Glove from the 1980’s. For those not familiar, the Power Glove, built for the Nintendo Entertainment System by Mattel, was supposed to be all the Nintendo Wii is today. A revolutionary control interface, a game changer.
Yet it was the development of the Power Glove, conceptually and technologically, that paved the way for the Wii which HAS been a commercial success.
On a human level, this was just a reminder that a failure today can bring success down the road.
Have a great weekend!
