Free Falling – The Movie

from the because-life-just-isn't-boring-enough dept

Apparently someone spent $25,000 making a film that shows you what it would be like to free fall from 30,000 feet. Thrilling, huh? It’s interesting, though, how they designed a camera that they could drop that distance and survive. The trick was to use two cameras and pass the video through from the first one to the second, so that when the first one got smashed on impact, the second kept the film.
