Video: The bad ass point of view shots from the original Mad Max saga

The original Mad Max movies were packed with action scenes and though they weren’t on the scale of Fury Road, they were still awesome to watch because a lot of times you get to see it all happen from the point of view of the character. It immerses yourself in the world and almost makes you feel like you’re a part of… » 5/27/15 10:09pm 5/27/15 10:09pm

Seeing a trick from a magician's point of view makes it more impressive

This video of a magician's card trick flips the perspective around so that we can see everything from the point of the view of the magician. Somehow with the reverse angle, it adds more 'magic' to the trick and makes what the magician does seem even more impressive. I got lost just watching him shuffle. » 4/14/15 7:40pm 4/14/15 7:40pm

Garmin VIRB X and XE: One of Our Favorite Action Cams Is Leveling Up

The Garmin Virb Elite was one of our favorite action cams a year ago, which was a big surprise from a company known more for navigation and sports watches. It had some unique features and impressively sharp optics. It was big and bulky, though, and it topped out at 1080p/30fps, so it couldn’t hang with the big boys.… » 4/13/15 7:00am 4/13/15 7:00am

Movie filmed to look like a first person shooter game looks incredible

Here's an action scene from a movie called Hardcore that's filmed completely from one character's point of view so it looks exactly like a first person shooter video game. In fact, it's so good, it's as if those FPS video games like Call of Duty all of a sudden came to life. Watch it. » 11/03/14 10:13pm 11/03/14 10:13pm

This is what hunting looks like from a lioness' point of view

I've seen lionesses hunting in documentaries before but this is the first time I've seen it from their point of view. South African animal behaviorist Kevin Richardson strapped a GoPro to the back of a lioness and captured this amazing footage of the feline hunting a down a waterbuck. » 10/27/14 7:31pm 10/27/14 7:31pm

This is what Paris looks like from an eagle's point of view

This is the flight of Victor, a white tailed eagle, as he takes off from the Eiffel Tower, glides over the Trocadero, and plunges at 112 mph to land softly on his handler's arm. This was made to support Freedom, a project created by Jacques-Olivier Travers to reintroduce these birds back in France. » 10/24/14 12:41am 10/24/14 12:41am

Chopping down a super tall tree with a chainsaw looks like a lot of fun

It probably requires a lot of planning and a lot of strategic rope placement and a lot of brass balls but once you're all the way up there and everything is set, chopping down a tree with a chainsaw looks like crazy amounts of fun. This GoPro footage from the chainsaw's perspective proves that. » 7/23/14 11:45pm 7/23/14 11:45pm

Here's what it's like to plummet down the world's tallest water slide

POV footage shows it's a helluva drop so yeah, it's scary. People will pretty much plummet straight down a 168-foot 7-inch tall slide—which makes it the world's tallest water slide—at thigh burning speeds to blast over a massive hill to ride another "mini" 50 feet slide. It doesn't get any sicker than this. » 6/30/14 9:00pm 6/30/14 9:00pm

First-person point of view video recorded by a wild polar bear

US Geological Survey's biologists attached cameras and radio collars to four free-ranging female Alaskan polar bears last April. One of the resulting videos shows one of the bears in action in the Beaufort Sea, checking out a potential mate, swimming below ice, and trying to eat a frozen seal (which is kind of gross.) » 6/08/14 5:04pm 6/08/14 5:04pm

A motorcycle crash at 140mph from the motorcyclist's point of view

Well, this is absolutely terrifying. This helmet cam footage shows a motorcyclist crashing his bike at 140mph, hitting the car in front of him and having his body catapulted and spun for what seems like an eternity on the road. Amazingly, he survived the crash. Incredible. Unbreakable. » 4/29/14 8:44pm 4/29/14 8:44pm

Whoa, watch a street performer do mind-bending tricks from his POV

It's like magic. A street performer defies gravity by contact juggling a sphere in front of a crowd and it's absolutely mesmerizing to see from his point of view. You feel the pressure he has to perform, the focus he has in his movements and the art of it all. I'll be giving you money next time. » 3/04/14 10:54pm 3/04/14 10:54pm

Here's How You Park the World's Biggest Container Ship

https://vimeo.com/71337390 The newly constructed Triple-E line of cargo ships from Emma Maersk are massively, enormously huge vessels. They dwarf even the mightiest aircraft carriers, displacing some 165,000 metric tons, so parking one can be just a wee bit of a challenge. But the crew aboard the Maersk Mc-Kinney… » 8/01/13 1:00pm 8/01/13 1:00pm

What A First Person View of a Lightsaber Duel Looks Like

If lightsabers ever become real, and let's be honest some genius will dedicate his entire life into making that happen, I hope the entire world will be well practiced in how to handle them. Sure the ballet of Star Wars characters fighting in light sabers looks great (or ridiculous), but when you get an up close view… » 5/08/13 8:39pm 5/08/13 8:39pm
