DIY GoPro Cannon: Be a Cannonball

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 28, 2015

Action cameras let us see through the eyes of athletes, daredevils, and professionals, including human cannonballs. If you’d like to record that unique point of view without risking your life, check out Eclectical Engineering’s debut project.


Eclectical Engineering is a new website where tinkerers David and Ryan showcase their bizarre contraptions. They launched their site by making a pneumatic PVC cannon that can launch a variety of small objects.

But the cannon is just half of their debut project. The other half is a 3D-printed spring-loaded missile housing for GoPro’s smallest camera, the Hero 4 Session. Skip to 2:47 in the video below to see the missile’s point of view.

Head to Eclectical Engineering for more details on the cannon. As of this writing they haven’t shared the missile’s 3D files, so you’ll just have to keep an eye on the site’s downloads section.
