Bottle Rocket Cam Captures Wild Ride [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 4th, 2011

If you’ve ever paused to wonder what it would be like to hitch a ride on the bottle rockets you send screaming off into the night, this video is for you.

Jeremiah Warren likes strapping cheap cameras to things to see what happens (arrows and chickens for example). In the above video he rigged up a lightweight camera to the stems of various bottle rockets and recorded their flights. After watching all of them (if you’re prone to motion sickness you might want to skip the video) we can say with authority that we’re glad we’re not bottle rockets.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
