This innovative product has changed the way gaming and interactive gameplay works. Instead of the user needing to get used to, and adapt to a new controller for a new console or game; you're going to be able to convert all of your controller movements into keyboard features. 


  • turn any console game into an easier playing environment by converting gaming controllers into a keyboard controller. Instead of having to use, for example,  Wii u controller, you can program the control strokes into your keyboard settings. 
  • not only button controllers can be converted, but so can joystick movements. Instead of using the generic joystick controller, you can convert this type of movement into a keyboard programmed stroke pattern through an explained algorithm provided on the website and with the download. 
  • Cursor movements can also be converted into keyboard controlled movements through thorough adaption methods. This is slightly more difficult, but not impossible. This makes going through the process of using on-screen directional cursors. 
  • Everything is done with a simple glove programming language, which is explained on the website and a guide is given with the download. 

The program is available on Windows 98 and newer, however, some operating systems are limited on which features is capable of holding. This program will work with any controller that is peripheral with your device (for example an Xbox controller and a windows pc), however many many more controllers will be compatible and work with the GlovePIE program. The only downside to this program is that it will cause occasional input lag on newer computer systems, but it won't be bad enough to cause considerable disadvantages to the compatibility. This system is revolutionary in the consolidation of peripheral and nonperipheral device controller and turns them into keyboard inputs/outputs for better user comfort and accessibility.

This makes it so much easier to do my challenge runs in retro games, load up this guy and I can use any peripheral as a controller for a game. Wanna use a rockband drumset to play sonic? Done. How about a guitar hero controller to beat Mike Tyson in punchout? Done. Don't waste time with anything else.

GlovePie for Windows is for gamers who don't want to be tied to a game controller to play. It allows you to map all of the controller functions to your keyboard so that you can play video games independent from a controller. Both button and joystick functionality can be mapped to your keyboard. It's compatible from Windows 98 and forward. The keyboard mapping is done using a simple programming language called "Glove".

GlovePIE allows you to connect devices such as a Nintendo WiiMote and use it as a mouse. The software is simple, effective, and does what is said on the label. As long as you have the parts for it, the program does the rest for you.

At first glance, I had no idea what to expect from the name of the software. The name GlovePie did not trigger any thoughts or expectations. However, upon further research, I discovered that GlovePIE was a Programable input emulator that allows users to emulate joysticks and keyboards while emulating games. I am probably going to try GlovePie out myself because I am an avid emulator user.

GlovePIE seems like a very niched software for gamers. It emulates joysticks in a game and is completely free to use. This sounds like a great software for those who want the gaming console experience on Windows. If someone is into console gaming or feels more comfortable with that, I could see why they would probably download the software. However, I don't think it's for the majority of the people, which is okay.

I've been a GlovePIE user for a while and it's great, I would highly recommend it to anyone. I started using it because I lost a joystick and needed to use another controller. My gaming squad told me to download it and it was quick and easy to install.

I was first unsure of what to anticipate given the software's name. GlovePie not only enables you to play joystick-only games without a joystick but also grants you the power to build macros. New gadgets are soon to be released to improve your gaming experience and offer a new way to play a game.

I have been using GlovePIE software for some time now. I find it to be quite useful for creating custom scripts and mapping controls for games. It has a great variety of options and also includes support for a wide array of different gaming devices. The user interface is fairly straightforward and easy to use. I have been able to get the scripts running without any issues. It also comes with an extensive help section. The software also has some advanced features which can help with more complex scripting. It's a great way to customize game controls and create custom scripts.
