Stabilizer For GoPro  »  Ron's Log
Designed to work with standard GoPro mounts (so it should be usable for lots more than Just GoPros), the Stabcam looks almost as stable as a chicken's head. The company's own website for Stabcam. Gizmodo article. Stabcam hasn't even started its Kickstarter yet, so it'll be awhile before these are available on the market. ...

Professional Broadcast Link For GoPro Cameras  »  Ron's Log
First, you might need to know whichever version you get, it's gonna cost you $7,500. It's called Herocast and will provide a professional quality to your GoPro cameras so that you can use them live - presumably in a sporting event, but public TV might like to put one on the end of a trombone in a symphony performance. ...

How They Do It In Holland  »  Ron's Log
In order to cleanse your palate, here's how they take down violent criminals (home invaders, in this case) in the Netherlands. It does look like the perps surrender almost too readily, although there is that one being held down by an officer pressing his knee into his back. But it is of note that only one cop is holding him down and there's a remarkable lack of punching and kicking. ...

Express Your Inner Baboon  »  Ron's Log
How's this for high concept advertising? You don't get a single spec. You get the brand name, 3DR, but is there a model name? How much? Can I buy it? All irrelevant questions. There is only one question: How cool can you be? I'm sure your first thought was the same as mine: what, they couldn't use the opening of "Also Sprach Zarathustra?" Why not? Too trite? I find that hard to believe. My/your second thought would be "Where is that place?" "That place" is Spaceport America in New Mexico: BTW, if that one scene was meant to ...
