Small video cameras are great when riding a motorcycle, but a tad limited in angle and position. And having a camera like a GoPro hooked up to your helmet or motorcycle can give you really nice videos. Or even with special equipment (see related below), the videos are going to be great.... but.... it's still limited to having the camera really close to you or your motorcycle.


But there's a new camera under development that could make our riding videos really cool. Called MeCam Open MeCam link in a new window by Always Innovating Open Always Innovating link in a new window is a quad-propeller mini drone that has some very interesting features.

First of all, the drone is so small it fits in the palm of your hand and therefore is easy to take along on your bike. The camera can make some really panoramic images, so that's a bonus. But the most interesting feature is the "Follow Me" feature.


This feature tells the MeCam to follow you wherever  you go. Imagine riding you motorcycle off-road, and then telling it to follow you. It hovers above you while you ride. Now that would be great... it's like having a new helicopter following you.

Have a look at the video below to get an idea:

So let's see how this product develops.

Thursday, December 13th, 2012 - Get More Out Of Your GoPro Video Camera

Many motorcycle riders have gotten themselves GoPro video cameras to film themselves on their kick-ass rides (or they'll be getting one from Santa Claus). GoPro cameras are very cool High Definition cameras that are small enough to use on your motorcycles, but give you an exceptional image quality.

GoPro cameras can be put on your helmet, your chest and your bike, giving nice images when you make a video of yourself riding up to the local Starbucks. But here's a product that has just gone live that will make those shots look even more professional and unique.

BoomPro is a product that has been blown into life via the crowd-funding site Kickstarter, but rest assured, the project has just been fully funded, and is now in full swing (though they don't have a web site yet).

BoomPro is an extension rod for the GoPro camera that can be mounted on your helmet, giving a third person view of your ride
Wednesday, March 27th, 2013 - Idea: Gadget Rail For Sports Motorcycles

Rocket Rail
Rocket Rail
One disadvantage of riding a sports motorcycle is that there's very little room to place gadgets like GPS, smartphone, GoPro etc. There's no handlebar like what you'd find on a traditional motorcycle onto which you can bolt devices.

Rocket Rail is planning to change that. Rocket Rail is a Kickstarter project, in other words, they are trying to raise the funds to "kickstart" the project. The "inventor" rides a Honda CBR250R and needed space to place phone and GPS.

You can place the proposed Rocket Rail on the bike's fork bolts. No modifications are required to your bike, just use the bolts that are there...........
Thursday, July 18th, 2013 - Idea: 3rd Person View For GoPro On A Motorcycle

GoPro 3rd Person View
#Kickstarter #GoPro - Many motorcycle riders have GoPro cameras to immortalize their rides using this nifty video camera. Filmed in full HD (and beyond), sound and lightweight, these cameras can be attached almost anywhere. On your motorcycle, on your helmet and even on your front. There is even one project that places the GoPro very high on your helmet.

This KickStarter project, VuVantage, involves your GoPro and a special harness. Put in the harness, and the video camera will be located several feet above & behind you, like a 3rd person is filming you...........
