It’s crazy hot out there this week, but this gorgeous video shot from a remote-control helicopter hovering over Niagara Falls lets you (nearly) feel the cool, refreshing spray on your sweaty overheated face.
YouTuber questpact rigged a GoPro Hero3 to his DJI Phantom quadcopter to get this shot, his entry in DJI’s Phantom Video Contest. The straight-down view of the falls is unlike any perspective you could get from the riverside overlook or a tourist boat, and combined with the serene soundtrack (probably more enjoyable than the deafening roar of six million cubic feet of water rushing by every minute) the result gives you a five minute reprieve of nature and peacefulness.
Now if only we could perfect the quadcopter belt, we’d be able to experience views like this in person, without having to learn to balance on a temperamental tightrope.
Ever caught yourself looking at the back of your Macbook Pro and thinking, this little logo sure could use some personality? Well, if you’re a minimalist guy like myself, the Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat sticker circulating around the Net is a tad much.
Thankfully, MacStickrs is here with a high quality and deceptively brilliant series of designs that give your Apple logo the personality he is lacking. You can dress yours in a series of different “faces” that include Fu Manchu, a variety of eyeglasses (including Harry Potter), and even the classic “Rollie Fingers” look.
You really want this!
Okay, don’t get too excited. We’ll preface this Kickstarter project by telling you that donating will not get you your very own Paravelo Flying Bike. But it will get the kind chaps at London-based XploreAir off the ground, so to speak, in pushing forward with the final designs so you can soon pick one up for yourself.
The concept apparently works, if you watch the video over at their project page.
Not sure if I should be thrilled or terrified. While there’s no doubt in my mind, I’d never get several feet off the ground on a bike, I know my wife would, and that’s scary enough. What about you guys — were bikes meant for flying? (And did I just ask that question?)
The Monkey Light Pro, is something very cool for your bike, with that item you really can say: “watch my bike”.
The reborn of an icon. In the 1930s, designer William Hawley Bowlus, who built the Spirit of St. Louis, created an aluminum-shelled, bullet-shaped trailer he hoped would be the ultimate travel machine.
