GoPro RotoR Mount 360 video = Awesome!

I just found this by chance and it looks really stupid but gives a really cool effect.

GoPro RotoR page:

I am curious if anyone had ever used it state side? The final product comes out pretty well but I can’t imagine having to wear that big gimble around my head while I’m doing any of these activities.

I imagine the resulting video effect is cool.

However the protective quality of the helmet is reduced to less than zero and instead become a camera mounting platform and a serious vector of damage to the neck and to rotational injuries to the brain. Helmet mounted cameras themselves already greatly increase this risk.

The solution is a UAV camera drone that circles you at a close distance, not a head mounted aluminum pole.
