Stop-motion vid pays homage to retro gaming using iPad mini and Nexus 7 components

Over the years, repair shop iFixit has torn apart hundreds, if not thousands, of mobile devices so the world could understand how these things are made, and more importantly – how our gadgets fare from the repairability standpoint.

Today, the iFixit blog is highlighting something completely different, a cool stop-motion animation by Martin Spengler and German ad shop LAB BINÆR.

The charming video is well worth a watch: it’s a clever homage to retro gaming that uses the disassembled iPad mini and Nexus 7 components to build levels reminiscent of some of the widely popular old-school games…

Here it is.

While we’re at iFixit, they gave the iPad mini a repairability score of just two out of ten, because it’s held together with “gobs of glue,” so hassle-free repairs are tough.

By comparison, Google’s Nexus 7 earned a repairability score of seven out of ten – even beating the iPad 3 on repairability. Speaking of stop-motion videos, check out another LAB BINÆR work below.

So, are these some of the greatest stop-motion vids to adorn your screen or what?
