Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

GLOVE video game controller

The GLOVE video game controller from Reality Quest U.K.

It plugs directly in to the PlayStation, slip the glove on to your hand and away you go! It wires you into the game and the movements can be seen on the screen.

It is an approved PlayStation Peripheral

"* Using The Glove is as simple as pointing. Begin play in a natural, comfortable ‘handshake’ position. What could be more user friendly?

* Bend your wrist and the game character moves in that direction – you don’t even have to aim.

* Buttons are located at your fingertips for arcade speed in combo moves.

No configuration is required – simply plug The Glove right into the controller port on your PlayStation game console.

Works with all your existing games:

* Digital mode works with games designed for a standard PlayStation control pad

* Analog mode works with games designed for single analog joystick and driving controllers

* Simulated-Analog mode gives you analog-type control in most digital games.

The Glove – the next generation of control is now in your hand."
