Check out this video from the Bay Area Maker Fair, where Nolan Moore shows how he was able to revamp a Nintendo Power Glove to control a AR Drone quadcopter.
We saw this awesome quadcopter demo at Bay Area Maker Faire.

His power glove has an IMU to sense motion, and flex sensors in the fingers. These sensors are monitored by a Teensy LC board which then sends commands over WiFi using an ESP8266 module.
