    Why spend money on a camera stabilizer when you can build one using LEGOs? Is there anything you can't do with these magical little bricks?

    Doesn't look like it's stabilizing the camera very well at all at the start of the video.

    Well, it certainly does a good job of removing the 'cool' factor from the GoPro.

    I only clicked into the forums for this post, hoping for some LEGO bashing... I'm sorely disappointed!

    Ok, I'll try. Legos were better when they used fewer one-off parts and you had to use your imagination to build things. They're also insanely expensive. Happy? :happy:

    Did I skip past it or does the video not show any stabilized footage? I only saw the bit of un-stabilized video towards the beginning.
