Watching a Go-Pro Camera Fall 10,000 Feet is Mesmerizing

A Go-Pro camera was recently found outside of Kristianstad, Sweden, after its skydiving owner lost it during a jump. Remarkably, the camera was still functional, but even more incredible is the footage it captured during nearly 10,000 feet of descent.

Kristoffer Örstadius, who posted the video, says he’s still searching for the camera’s rightful owner. Meanwhile, we can all enjoy its crazy, tailspinning descent, the likes of which I hope to never experience firsthand. [YouTube via Sputnik News]


That was not mesmerizing. That was stressful and somewhat terrifying. I kept waiting for it to hit and it just kept going on and on and on ... like a skydiver’s worst nightmare.

very cool vid though :)
