Cliff Strike

Base jumper Subterminallyill posted on his Vimeo page a very impressive, immersive (seemingly a helmet mounted GoPro) slow motion footage of his last jump off a cliff, which as it happens didn’t go well at all. As the seconds slowly pass by, the moment almost feels like a soft, skimming interaction. But as soon as the actual speed is revealed, it shows a brutal, violent accident happening in a split second.

GoPro, the company that makes those tiny camera you can usually spot on extreme sports footages, has just announced its last one: the GoPro HERO3. The quality seems to be jaw dropping, and yet this is a very affordable little toy (about $200 to $400 depending on the version). I don’t mean to make promotional writing here; maybe I’m just becoming a fanboy of theirs.
