The man Richard Nixon once dubbed as "the most dangerous man in America" had some sweet toys to pair up with his arsenal of psychedelics—this week while going through their archives, the New York Public Library discovered they were in possession of Timothy Leary's Nintendo Power Glove, along with his red-laced Adidas.
