Behold the work of the mighty helmet cam!

Since I spent yesterday evening making this video instead of writing, I thought I might as well post it here. It's a backwards-facing "helmet cam" video I made with my six-year-old daughter. (Said helmet cam consisting of one bike helmet, one long stick duct-taped to the helmet, and one Canon PowerShot duct-taped to the stick.)

It's not meant to be a finished product or anything, just a "proof of concept," so it has no ending and it's a little sloppy in terms of technique. Mostly, I wanted to see if I could get the dang thing to work. But it actually came out a lot better than I expected. I think the helmet cam has a lot of potential. (Especially if I can convince my daughter to wear it outside of our backyard. I'm still working on that part.)
