When you leave an expensive camera, like a GoPro, in the wild, the point is for the animals not to notice. After all, the point is the capture footage of the creatures in their natural habitat. Besides, most animals wouldn’t care about a teeny, tiny little camera, right?
Wrong. (At least when it comes to this smart little fox.)
While filming sea lions in Round Island, Alaska, a group of researchers noticed a fox approaching them in the distance.
Although his pricey camera was shredded, Jonathan was a good sport about it, adding that he’s “glad the fox didn’t get hurt or swallow anything that could have harmed it.” All we can say is that we hope this fox found the lunch he was obviously hungry enough to eat a camera for. Otherwise, we’re leaving ours at home next time we’re out in the wild.

Have you ever thought what it felt like for a train to pass over you? No? That’s okay, because you’re going to find out anyway.
Without risking life and limb, you can experience the near death experience of almost getting hit by a train. A couple of guys placed a GoPro camera in the middle of some train tracks. As a result, they got awesome footage of a speeding train passing overhead at 75mph.
You’ll be wondering how this footage is even possible when you see it.
This stunning footage was filmed by Christian Yellott on his GoPro camera as he took a high speed jet ski ride through the incredibly narrow canyons of Lake Powell on the Colorado River. It’s almost as if he’s flying, because the water is so amazingly still and clear.
Christian’s video even got the attention of the GoPro team themselves, who featured it on Google + as their video of the day.
Taking dance to the next level is something the Bandaloop dance company takes literally. The company specializes in “vertical dance,” where dancers are suspended via cables so that they can dance on the walls of buildings, suspended over their audience. So besides the intricate choreography that goes into a traditional performance, the Bandaloop dancers also appear to float weightlessly in the air. From the ground, it looks as though they are on a horizontal surface, and the Matrix-style leaps and flips seem to defy gravity.
Two Bandaloop dancers, Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber, recently performed “Waltz on the Wall” on the side of City Hall in Oakland, CA, for the city’s annual Art + Soul festival. Rudolph captured the dance on a GoPro, lending a thrilling first-person perspective to the performance–they’re really high up!
