Dubstep + Power Glove = Now we’re talking
I’m not a big fan of dubstep, but it’s hard to deny how cool this is.
Los Angeles-based producer, Yeuda Ben-Atar (also known as Side Brain), has modified the classic 1980s NES accessory, the Power Glove, to allow him to control and create music. With the simple flip of a finger, Ben-Atar has the ability to control a music creation tool called Ableton Live.

This has allowed Ben-Atar to stand out in the crowded world of electronic music. Whether you’re a fan of the genre or not, taking the horrible Power Glove and turning it into something useful, is definitely an accomplishment.
