Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey is a skilled artist and stop-motion animator; so skilled, in fact, that the physical limitations of his meat body were holding back his art. He needed a more efficient way to communicate with his software from the set, quicker than mere walking. In his words:
"I had to have a Power Glove on my arm."
The glove has 3 major components. The programmable keypad, for controlling the stop-motion software:
Retractable tweezers on a magnetic pad, for replacing characters' facial expressions:
Fist-bump-activated audio, for brief human interaction:
Fittingly, the first scene he animated with his Power Glove was Shigeru Miyamoto triple-jumping into a hot tub with Bill Gates.
