GoPro videos seem to be the new go-to video if you want to experience something from a perspective you thought you never would be before. They have risen in popularity over the last few years as the rigs themselves have gotten less and less expensive. Though I did GoPro an afternoon of writing once, not too many people were too impressed, as they can live that themselves, any day. But a GoPro video of a master pool player sinking crazy shots from a bunch of great perspectives, including mounted to the cue itself?
Yeah, that is some great use of the technology, and shows just how impressive some of these shots really are.
Truth is, you don't even have to be a fan of pool to be sucked into this one. There is just something mesmerizing about watching the fluidity and physics of some of the balls he sinks. Almost makes pool look easy for a minute. That is the thing about most GoPro videos. They trick you into thinking you can do it, too, for a second. Just for a second, though.
