‘Robot Chicken’ Stop-Motion Animator Utilizes a Hacked Nintendo Power Glove as Part of His Workflow

In “Playing with Power” by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Ava Benjamin, Dillon Markey, an animator for the Adult Swim stop-motion animated series Robot Chicken, shows off the hacked Nintendo Power Glove he uses to help animate scenes. The number pad has been outfitted with a new circuit board for capturing shots and playing back frames, a set of tweezers have been attached for manipulating character eyebrows, and a speaker has been hidden toward the front of the gaming peripheral that says “fuckin’ awesome” when fist-bumped.
