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.
