    hey thats a pretty cool concept, very interesting to see. is there any picture of the rig/helmet that he set up to put on his head to capture it? but yes thats a new way to view badminton hope to see some more in the future.

    I felt a bit sick watching it. It's like that one movie, Blair Witch or something. If I'm not in control of the movement, then I will feel sick.

    Still pretty cool though.

    i think he got it for car racing. it is also waterproof so it is great for swimming/diving.

    Yeah..

    ..i saw another post also, by another member, showing the same helmet-cam capture. I think he was lobbying, clearing back and forth.

    Hmm, next time, ask your friend if he'd like to put it around his chest, so we can see chest high captures. Maybe less dizzying??..The helmet-cam capture is indeed dizzying..:p

    Racket cam is nothing compared to shuttle cam.That's the real roller coaster thing.Especially if it's recorded in international matches with all the pros playing with it.Hahaha..bet that no one can stand looking too long to it.
