30 GoPro Cameras and Bullet Time

What happens when you create a rig with 30 GoPro cameras? Awesome surfing videos, that's what! Ripcurl released this badass surfing video where time stops and the viewer can move through the scene. It is the same idea of that The Matrix used for all of its spin-around-the-character-bullet-time shots. Since GoPros are so cheap and robust we will be seeing a lot more of these kick ass videos.

Apologetics of a Gamer

Gaming is an essential part my life. There is something about great games that can sooth a person's soul. This French video really encapsulates what it is like to invest your love and passion into games. Everything about this video is reigns true for gamers. It is awesome to see video/computer game deconstructed with depth and understanding. Too many times do we take the macho road and express our love for games through our joy of violence. It is much more than than that. The violence is pretty awesome, but there is something else there that pulls people. Hopefully, now the that the gaming industry is smashing every other entertainment medium we will start to see more meditations on what it is to be a gamer.
