Amazing video shows what it’s like to fall thousands of feet to your death

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fall thousands of feet to your death but have been understandably too scared to try it yourself? Well thankfully some skydivers have decided to help us experience this particular sensation vicariously after they tossed a GoPro camera out of an airplane and actually found it still in one piece after it landed in a muddy pig pen. The person who owns the camera says that she actually thought it was gone for good until finding it eight months later on her own property. This is the second amazing GoPro-filmed video we’ve seen this year as last month we saw a similarly amazing video of a plane crash. The full video is posted below. More →

Another amazing GoPro video: What it’s like to ski the most horrifying downhill course of the Olympics

Last week we showed you the most terrifying GoPro video of all time, which had just been made available in high-definition for the first time ever. The video showed us what it’s like to free-fall to the Earth from space, filmed by a GoPro camera strapped to Felix Baumgartner as he made his famous space jump in 2012. While it’s hardly as crazy as falling from space, a newly filmed high-definition video posted over the weekend by BBC’s Graham Bell gives us a first-hand view of what it’s like to ski the Rosa Khutor men’s downhill course, which U.S. Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller recently said is so intense that it “could kill you.” More →

The best (and most terrifying) GoPro video of all time: What it’s like to fall from outer space, in HD

WARNING: The following video is as terrifying as it is amazing, and probably should not be watched by the faint of heart. With that out of the way, GoPro on Friday released what is without question the most amazing high-definition video of all time that was captured by a GoPro camera. Known for their durability and portability, GoPro cameras are often the tools of choice for capturing video in extreme conditions. Simply put, we’re not sure that there’s anything more extreme than leaping off of a space craft and free-falling from outer space. More →

Video: Terrifying plane crash captured on GoPro camera from inside cabin

It’s every air traveller’s worst nightmare, and one passenger aboard a flight off the coast of Kalaupapa, Molokai in Hawaii recently gave the world a first-hand look at what it’s like to go down in a plane crash. Thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and other portable cameras like the GoPro, we now often see firsthand accounts of events that only a lucky few — or a very unlucky few, in this case — could experience in the past. The latest example comes from Ferdinand Puentes, who pulled out his GoPro camera and began filming recently when an airplane he was aboard abruptly fell out of the sky off the coast of Hawaii.
