Aetho Aeon Steadycam Will Make Your GoPro Videos As Smooth As Butter


Everyone and the mailman is taking action videos these days. One thing most of them have in common however is how shaky they tend to be. The Aetho Aeon aims to fix that by providing you with a fairly high-tech stabilizer for your GoPro. It features a 3-axis gimbal powered by brushless motors, a 32 bit Cortex processor, and an accelerometer making 1,000 measurements per second, which all combine to keep the camera completely steady. There’s a viewfinder LCD and a joystick to help you point the camera right where you want it, as well as an accessory mount. The battery is good for 5 hours of use on a 2 hour charge, and the kit weighs all of 1.1lbs (500g).

It’s a pretty fancy way to stabilize your videos, and considering the amount of tech, we’re surprised the asking price is only a $349 pledge to their fully-funded IndieGogo campaign, with shipping in Q1 2016.

360fly Does Action Vids In 360º


You could strap a GoPro to your helmet and catch the action in front of you. But what if you miss something awesome happening behind your back? Better cover all your angles and get a 360fly camera. It’s dust-proof, shock-proof, and water-proof and is able to shoot video at 1504×1504, in 30fps. You can view the vids through the companion app, and then share them to your favourite social network. Unfortunately, despite having 16GB of internal storage, we can’t quite tell how much time that gives you. Still, it’s a cool product that we expect to do well on the marketplace… if they can manage to convince people to fork over $499. You can pre-order it now, with shipping “this spring”.

Chestburster Drive Thru Prank: Would You Like a Side of ‘Alien’ With That?

One of the scariest elements of the Alien franchise has got to be the chestbursters. Even the mere thought of having an alien creature growing and feeding inside you before bursting out of your chest, causing excruciating pain is hair-raising. This holds true, even if you haven’t watched any of the movies, and prankster Rahat is well-aware of this.

That’s probably why he chose to do the alien chestburster prank on unsuspecting drive-thru workers. (On a side note, he’s done a lot of these drive-thru pranks so it’s only a matter of time before they wise up to Rahat’s ways, right?) Check out the reaction that his prank elicits from the drive-thru people, some of them are just priceless!

Record Anonymous Video Confessions With the ‘Awkward’ App

'Awkward' App_001

Got something that you want to say out loud, but can’t because it’s something that’s meant to be kept private? Then download the Awkward app and start filming. It’s an app that lets you record blurred video confessions so you can get them off your chest without compromising your identity.

Created by Redcyan, Awkward lets users film themselves for up to ten seconds. It then provides options for the degree of blurriness that the user wants his or her video to be. They can also opt for zero blur, if they’re ready to let the world (or whoever uses the app) about their deepest, darkest secrets. After the videos are uploaded, they can be embedded to websites and shared via email and social media.

Awkward can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store.

Beyond Awesome: Roller Coaster Planet Through the Lens of Six GoPro Cameras

To say that the things you can do with a GoPro is limitless is no exaggeration. It’s the world’s most versatile camera, used by amateurs, hobbyists, professionals, and everyone else in between. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a GoPro is, well, it’s a waterproof and shockproof HD video camera that’s compact and comes with a wide variety of mounts for added versatility.

The clip above, dubbed as LittlePlanet RollerCoaster, is an example of the awesomeness that you can achieve with the GoPro–well, six of them, actually, and video editing software VideoStitch. Mounted on strategic areas, the resulting video turns the roller coaster into its very own planet, taking you along on a very scenic and exhilarating ride. If this doesn’t inspire you to go out there and shoot something artistic, then I don’t know what will.

360cam Takes To GoPro’s Turf With 360 Degree Action Video


The action-camera market is crowded, but is largely dominated by GoPro, and for good reason. They’re great cameras with amazing video quality and tons of features. One thing they don’t have, however, is the ability to shoot in 360 degrees. That, the 360cam does by cramming three cameras with 185 degrees of lateral vision together in one package. The overlapping views are then stitched together on the device before being output to h.264 at 30fps in FullHD, geotagged with the included GPS chip. Gyroscopic image stabilization takes care of the shakes, while a WiFi chip allows you to stream your footage directly to a smartphone or tablet. A lightbulb socket adaptor lets you stick the camera on your ceiling somewhere and serve as a security camera. And it takes 8MP stills at 3fps, in case you’re not in the mood for moving images. Oh, and it’s waterproof!

It’s really a full featured camera, and the company understandably blew past its Kickstarter goals in a matter of hours. You can still get yours for $329 right now, which is a good deal cheaper than the expected $529 retail price.

Damnit, Expelliarmus: ‘Harry Potter’ Dementor Prank

Remember those soul-sucking creatures from Harry Potter that can seal your fate with a single, fatal kiss? If you’re a fan of the franchise, then you probably do. Two dudes decided to have a little fun with the character by bringing it to life. Save for a hooded black robe and a dude who does a good impression of being possessed, the duo don’t have any props but their little prank was still a roaring success. I almost feel bad for all the people they scared…well, almost.

Half of them probably didn’t get the Harry Potter reference but seeing such strangeness right before your very eyes might be enough to freak an average person out. I know I probably would’ve been, too. Check it out!

Ain’t What It Seems: Covert Motorcycle Security Camera

Motorcycle Security Camera

Security cameras come in different shapes and sizes. Some are extremely small, such as the ones installed in clocks and fixtures, for example. Others are large but still discrete, like this motorcycle security camera by Japan Security System Co. As the name implies, it’s a security camera in the shape of a motorcycle. Despite being much larger than your typical security camera, it relies on just that to keep a low profile.

They’re meant to be installed at the entrances of hotels and other establishments where it would be uncommon to find a motorcycle there. Instead of head and tail lights, it has off-the-shelf video cameras installed instead. Two side-facing cameras are also installed on the seat.Continue Reading
