Six fun things to do with your new video camera

Did you get a video camera for Christmas? Wondering what cool projects you can use it for? I have some answers. Six, in fact.

Buy a sword. Attach it to the end.

Set yourself up as a first person shooter.

Do the (previously posted) third person car set up (language warning)

Attach the camera to a big helium balloon and send it into space (dizziness warning)

Follow this instructable and see yourself in third person. Computer game style.

I didn’t get a video camera for Christmas – but I did get one just before we went overseas. And I got a remote controlled helicopter (like every other male child adult this year). I don’t know how it would go if I attached one to the other… but here’s a purpose built cameracopter – that can be controlled by the power of iPhone. Which is awesome.
