Earlier today GoPro released a video of it's new Hero4 Session integrated into the Moto2 suit of rider Loris Baz. In the video you can see the cameras placed into the speed hump of the suit. This is the smallest action camera ever released from GoPro, but that's not really the impressive part. Nor is the the video from the practice session. We've either seen some of these angles before during a race or the angles weren't really that impressive to begin with. But what is exciting is the idea of camera integration into gear. Cameras have up to this point been an "attachment" in one way or another with clunky suction cup mounts or sticky pads. Integration into gear lends itself to a much more intimate view. In a sense that's what the point of these cameras is to begin with, capturing moments that a person can catch a glimpse into someone else's perspective. If these cameras begin to find a way into helmets, gloves, knee sliders, etc. Imagine the amazing shots that can be had with cameras that really put you in the seat of the bike, and in time will only get smaller and better.
I look forward to that day, along with automated Drones that can follow a single rider as they go around a track giving freedom by detaching itself from it's earthly bond! Ok so maybe I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. But as far as immersion into a high speed, adrenaline fueled roller coast that is MotoGP, or any motorcycle racing in general I look forward to the progress that can be made. Now GoPro get your shit together and make a more compelling video!
