A method for converting first-person videos, for example, captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling, into hyperlapse videos: time-lapse videos with a smoothly moving camera. Ingenious!
GoPro just went public with a huge success. How it comes? Well, the brand name is just perfect for kids filming their stunts. But way more important is the emotional content that is delivered every day through social media and youtube. GoPro started with surf videos, followed by wingsuits and highlines climaxing in the stratos jump by Felix Baumgartner. Now GoPro is going beyond sports into real life: surgeries, kids growing up, living with lions, deepsea adventures, space odyseey, wedding proposals... this is making the brand and the product an omnipresent recorder and via youtube transmiter of positive emotions. People just don't want to live without the gadget any more. That's the true success of Nick Woodman, founder and CEO of GoPro. Keep up the good work and bring more amazing videos to life.
