Thousands of hours of footage were recorded on GoPros this year. Most of that was tedious documentation of your kid’s bunny slope ski runs and closes up of your ugly mug mouthing “is this thing on?” But then there were a few clips that remind us, hey, human beings can pull of some pretty insane stunts.
This has to be the strangest video I have seen for a long time. After acting out a ghoul attack during free fall, this dude in a army outfit, carrying what appears to be an M-16, has a major chute malfunction sending him into a spin. It may be bizzare, but it is some intense footage.
If GoPro has given us anything beyond its lightweight, waterproof action camera, it's hundreds of bros intent on one-upping each other in increasingly wonderful and idiotic ways. Here's the latest proof.
Recording studios are wonderful, but not exactly cheap. A Volkswagen Bus is much more cost effective option because you can use them for recording and transportation!
The physics of modern racing games have come a hell of a long way since Cruis'n USA, but they're still missing the raw sense of urgency and unpredictability that can only occur in real life. That's why the forward thinking bunch known as VEODRIVE have taken some RC cars and GoPros, and created the most unique racing…
Make sure your GoPro is secured the next time you hit the track, otherwise you might end up launching it at somebody at 160 miles an hour.
GoPros and consumer-grade drones go together like peanut butter and chocolate. I guess it makes sense that GoPro will start churning out little fliers next year.
I'm admittedly not much of a gamer, other than the occasional flight sim, but when I came upon this live-action first-person POV promotional video for "Far Cry 4" I had to share it with you. It has Jeeps, guns, explosions, a gyrocopter, and even a wingsuit BASE jump. What's not to love?
Jason Cesco joined the racks of the few maniacs who have backflipped a snowmobile on dirt this summer. Here's the nauseating stunt from his helmet cam. It's disconcerting to see skis riding over rocks, let alone over your head.
Riding a bike on top of the arch of a bridge is something you normally do in video games and then post on YouTube with terrible music behind it. Not in real life. And you certainly don't tell your mom about it.
A troupe of 19 maniacs on unicycles, running knobby tires and disc brakes, hit the slickrock trails of America's off-road capital: Moab, Utah. Not sure off-roading can even get much more dangerous than this... probably why it's such a riot to watch.
The twisting highways of the Alps aren't just great for driving — you can also use them as a functional runway. Well, so long as you're a Red Bull stunt plane pilot.
You know what happens when you take your dog for a ride in your Porsche Cayman S? You get lots of flapping in the wind, and oh so much cute.
You know how Volkswagen recently had Tanner Foust hoon a 2015 GTI covered in GoPros? That was cool, but do you know what's cooler? Justin Bell thrashing a 1996 McLaren F1 GTR at Mid-Ohio, with some GoPros attached.
The anticipation at the starting line. The noise. The fear of storming over bumps and blind corners at full-tilt in the cabin of a Trophy Truck... Experience it all against the beautiful backdrop of the Arizona desert.
No. Pelicans aren't cars. They aren't planes. They aren't trains. They don't run on gasoline at all. But that doesn't make this any less cool.
