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.

WTF Video of the Day: Stanford Student Solving Three Rubik’s Cubes While Juggling Them

Recently came across this insane video, from a couple years back, of Stanford student Ravi Fernando solving three Rubik’s cubes while juggling them. This is beyond comprehension.

Watch the video below, as well as another video I found of Ravi juggling and solving one Rubik’s cube, shot from the front, so you can get a better idea what’s going on.

Music Video: Childish Gambino “Sober”

childishgambino-sober

When I interviewed director Hiro Murai back in November, he reminded me about director Daniel Wolfe’s videos for singer Plan B. There’s several of them, and they all seem to exist in the same universe. A similar thing is happening here with Hiro Murai and Childish Gambino, releasing this video for “Sober”, having already collaborated on “Telegraph Ave”, “Sweatpants”, and “3005”. I love seeing an artist and a director start to develop a language of their own.

Watch “Sober” below.
