Throwing Around a Camera on a Stick

With HD video cameras getting smaller and smaller, people are constantly attaching them to random things to give us bizarre perspectives that weren’t very easy to capture before, whether it’s the end of a broadsword or the tip of an arrow. In the video above, some friends decided to attach a GoPro camera to the end of a stick and throw it back and forth while running around. At 6 minutes, it runs a bit long, but who knew the simple idea could create such awesome results?


Update: Also check out this one with a GoPro attached to a hula hoop.

    Yeah, we didn’t share it because it’s a nice finished piece, but because the idea is interesting and could be built upon for something cooler.

    I wonder what their reason was to buy the camera. Guess this wasn’t the actual reason
