GoPro’s got itself quite a stable of little cameras these days. We already had (from high end to low end) the Hero4 Black, Hero4 Silver, Hero4 Session, Hero+LCD, and the straight up Hero. Now, squeezing in between those bottom two, comes the Hero+. It’s a $200 version of the Hero ($130), but it has Wi-Fi and has…
So you’ve got a tiger loose in your local abandoned auto plant. Who you gonna call? Detroit area bus driver Andy Didorosi, obviously. He’s my buddy, I just called and had him walk me through what happened.
If I’m going to be doing stupid things that risk the health of my various important body parts—and I do, often—I want to make sure I capture those moments so I can relive them later. That’s how I elbowed my way into the action camera beat more than three years ago, and I haven’t looked back.
After several gagillion leaks over the last few days, they're finally here: GoPro's 2014 line of action cameras. As rumored, there are in fact three models. There's the Hero, GoPro's new entry-level camera that comes in super cheap; the Hero4 Silver, which is basically last year's best action camera plus an LCD…
For years, if you wanted an action camera you would buy GoPro by default. And for good reason! Sony has caught up in a hurry, though. Its newest entry into the increasingly crowded field looks like it might be one of the first legitimate GoPro alternatives. It just depends on which compromises you're willing to make.
This is just awesome. Jim 'Pee Wee' Martin, a 93-year-old WWII veteran paratrooper, just did the same jump out of a plane into Normandy that he did for D-Day 70 years ago when he was 23-years-old. But he says this jump was much easier because "there wasn't anybody shooting at me today."
In 2008 someone broke into Rob Norman's house. He had speculated about this situation since he was a kid and thought of different heroic ways of repealing an attack. When it actually happened, he realized that he wasn't Bruce Willis in Die Hard.
When Sony announced their Action Camera, we guessed everyone else was in deep trouble. After all, Sony makes some of the baddest, most darkness-proof image sensors out there. But images speak louder than specs. So we put this little sucker through its paces.
Action cams have always sounded great. Just strap them to a bike, a surfboard, a car, or a helmet, and record a ride from the daredevil's POV. Now they're getting fancy, with full 1080p HD recording, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. So which is the right one to capture your classic runs and epic wipeouts?
After 16 days of an agonizingly slow process, a paralyzed woman has become the first person to complete a marathon in a bionic suit. Talk about an inspiration.
You don't have to be a doctor to know that eating hundreds of strips of bacon at a time can't possibly be good for your health. A reporter for Japan's Rocket News 24 obviously didn't get that memo. Because he ordered a burger from Burger King with 1,050 slices on top.
We loved our GoPro HD Hero. It was simply the sweetest wearable action camera we'd seen... until now. The brand spankin' new Hero 2 isn't dramatically different, they just made everything a lot better. I may never take it off.
You often read about a dog or a cat saving an owner's life, but you almost never read about a heroic rabbit. That is until now.
When Jaques Cousteau took his first underwater videos 80 years ago, they were simply of his wife Simone splashing around.
A photographer recently noticed that his 91-year-old Grandma was feeling lonely and depressed. So to cheer her up, he decided to take pictures of her as a superhero. After she saw them, she couldn't stop smiling.
Frederika (her real name) was born in Hungary and she goes by the superhero name of Super Mamika. Her…
