This glove gives you superpowers

Raiden is a prototype of a “superpower glove” that explores the possibilities of augmenting technologies and harnessing the supernatural. By using a series of Tesla coil drivers, Raiden provides an exoskeleton for hands and arms that allows up to 12,000 volts of raw electricity to spark from its user's fingers. Having energy at our fingertips makes it possible to eliminate our reliance on batteries, thus creating an opportunity for a more sustainable product life cycle where one battery fits all.
