We can’t believe it took this long to attach a GoPro to a soaring eagle
A brilliant genius strapped a GoPro camera to the back of an eagle and posted the video to YouTube.
A brilliant genius has strapped a GoPro camera to the back of an eagle and posted the video to YouTube.
This video is either an awesome look at a point of view most of us will never have, or a depressing realization that none of us are as cool as eagles. Basically we will never see the majestic Earth from the soaring view of a majestic beast. But this comes pretty close.
There’s some debate on Reddit about whether a GoPro was actually used, rather than a specialty bird-strapping camera like the ones used in these BBC videos from 2009.
Many people commenting on Reddit is also lamenting humans’ lack of ability to simply rise up from the ground and fly without technology. Maybe one day we will all be eagles.
UPDATE: We were too quick to take credit for this awesome video on behalf of America. Although the U.S.A.’s eagle credentials are unimpeachable, this video was actually filimed in the Chamonix Valley at Mer De Glace, France’s largest glacier.
