Octopi are very intelligent creatures, and they want to be left alone. You try to get some footage of an octopus, and they will steal your camera because they don’t care about your silly YouTube channel.
Want to see things get sliced and diced from the sword’s point of view? Of course you do. That’s what we are here for. This video from YouTubers Sam And Niko shows what happens when you mount a GoPro to the blade of a katana, then watch what it sees as it slices through things.
The video shows the whole process from the initial experimentation to the final shots, so it takes a bit to get into the POV slicing action.
These days, shooting aerial video is getting easier and easier with drones like the GoPro Karma and DJI Mavic Pro. The price is steep for some at $1,000 or higher, though. Turns out there is a simpler and much cheaper way to capture aerial video.
We all knew it was on the way and it was even delayed earlier this year, but GoPro has finally unveiled its Karma drone. This new quadcopter is sleek, compact and foldable, which means that you can fit one in almost any backpack and take it with you on the go.
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.
A couple of months ago, we checked out Sergey Grishchenko’s DIY scale model of the Curiosity rover. Michael Larkin’s Moon One is a very similar remote-controlled rover, but he optimized it for agility, maneuverability and mischief.
Like Sergey, Michael opted to 3D print most of his toy’s non-electronic parts, with the exception of several aluminum parts and insulin syringes that he used as shock absorbers.
There’s no question that GoPro dominates the action camera market, offering outstanding image quality, durability, and versatility. Now, the company is launching a new camera that’s substantially smaller than its others. The new GoPro HERO4 Session is roughly half the size and 40% lighter than of a standard HERO4, meaning it can fit in even smaller spaces, and offers greater mounting flexibility.
It’s waterproof and durable, so it’s great for skiing, surfing, kayaking and more.
I am a professional dancer. No really, my other job involves not just performing, but also running and directing the Ballet Theatre of Indiana. That’s why this particular GoPro video caught my eye. Normally, GoPro videos are a shaky capture of some dude with a soul patch doing something “extreme,” but this wasn’t.
There are already lots of Raspberry Pi cases – we’ve even featured a few 3D printed decorative cases – but if you’re looking for something that’s affordable, durable and customizable check out Tom Murray’s SmartiPi. It will come with a LEGO-compatible 6×10 removable top plate.
“GoPro” is quickly become genericized. I’ve seen people say “GoPro” when looking at Sony or JVC. Any company that wants to break into this market had better be bringing a seriously good product with some features that really make it stand out.
GoPros are great. They film the vast majority of awesome car videos, HALO jumping videos, and other YouTube-worthy displays of badassery. They’re also often stashed in interesting places to catch wild animals like squirrels, feral cats, and douchebags doing amusing things like eating nuts, assaulting small objects, and flipping their shit when their idiots pranks backfire.
Sports enthusiasts love drones because they allow them to take shots that would otherwise be impossible or expensive for them to make. The AirDog takes drones’ usefulness and efficiency to another level by eliminating the need for a cameraman.
Aerial filming is a cool way to share more of what’s going on in some sports or activities. GoPro cameras are used by a lot of active folks to record their antics, but most of those videos are recorded from the wearers point of view.
There are all sorts of things you can do with a flying drone aircraft or quadcopter carrying a camera. You could do the obvious and chase your dog or cat around the house. You could have it follow your significant other around to make sure they’re not causing trouble.
GoPro makes some of the most popular cameras out there for recording action sports. Typically when we see video made with one of these cameras it is on YouTube and often has people doing things that are dangerous.
