A few friends and I were putting the gas station shootout test together when we decided to put a small GoPro video camera on an atlatl dart. I'm really not sure if this kind of thing has been done before, I know I've never seen it. We were all interested to see what the earth looked like onboard a flying dart so we taped the camera to the end of the weapon and set to work. I'll go ahead and say it, this is awesome! Take a look at this short clip that Danny Beard put together. Danny Beard works in film and is a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

This was a really fun side project. How cool is it to see the earth from a flying atlatl dart! Special thanks to Danny Beard and David Loome.
