Stop-Motion Animator Dillon Markey Transforms the Nintendo Power Glove into Something Actually Useful

DillonMarkey-powerglove1 DillonMarkey-powerglove3DillonMarkey-powerglove2

Dillon Markey, an animator for Robot Chicken and PES (he co-animated that incredible short “Fresh Guacamole”), took an old Nintendo Power Glove and turned it into the ultimate tool for making stop-motion animations! I thought this was going to be a joke, but it is entirely real and practical (okay, minus the sound effect). How long until this ends up on Kickstarter?

Watch the video below.

  • Fuckin Awesome!!!

  • Luke Miller

    Very cool! reminds me of what Imogen Heap has been doing (she programed a glove that makes music based on hand motions).

  • This is awesome!

  • Lew Dameron

    this is amazing.

  • Simon Schuster

    As an added bonus, the music is by Power Glove.

  • I used to rock my Power Glove to grade school. Just sit in class and walk around the playground with it on. I’ve never felt cooler in my life:)

  • Best thing is just how excitable he is about what he’s made/ programmed. Hahah. I’d never heard of this glove.

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
