The Nintendo Power Glove may have failed as a game controller,
but animator Dillon Markey has given it a new lease on life. With a
few modifications and design tweaks, he’s revived the Glove and put
it to use as an ingenious stop-motion animation tool.

Back in college, my friend Ken thought that the Nintendo
Power Glove would be great for virtual reality applications, and I think
he even went so far as to obtain one, but I don't recall it ever being that
great for his intended purposes.
It also appears that even for its intended purposes, it failed.
But it's great to see someone finding a unique use for it.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
