This is the Hypnotic Result of Duct Taping a GoPro to a Car Tire

The title sort of says it all doesn’t it? The cool, slightly nauseating video above is the result of a fun little experiment: what would happen if you duct tape a GoPro to your car tire and go for a drive. And we do mean duct tape. Video creator Ryan Fox didn’t use any kind of special mount… just some tape and a prayer.

It’s a simple idea with captivating, hypnotic results that will either give you flashbacks to speedracer, make you feel like you’re traveling through time, or make you nauseous… the way we see it, two out of three ain’t bad.

    I would love to view a split-screen showing a “non-revolving” view alongside.

    Let’s see if photoshop’s shake reduction filter can fix that.

    Which is why I stopped about :30 into it. What’s the point?

    There’s a joke to be made about rolling shutter here. Not sure what it is though…

    I’d like to see it with the lens of the GoPro centered with the rim, if the camera itself is centered, the lens is slightly off axis and you get the lopsided spin.
