The Nintendo Power Glove never really took off, but one of those gloves has gotten a second life thanks to Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey. It may have been a clunky video game controller, but it's actually quite handy as stop-motion animation tool.

Markey also does work for stop-motion director PES, and in this video by Ava Benjamin, he explains how and why he converted a Power Glove into a Bluetooth device that lets him shoot a frame of footage without walking back to the camera. It's nostalgia put to good use.
