Diabolocam video

The name says it all: this is a video that shows what happens if you attach a camera to your diabolo and throw it way up in the air.

It's spinning of course, so let me explain what you will see: first the yard, then as the diabolo goes up you'll see the side of the house, then the roof. then it comes back down.

The video is here: http://www.cecebell.com/chickenguy/diabolocam.mpg

This web page explains how it was done: http://www.cecebell.com/chickenguy

I hope some of the rest of you will try it, too, so we can all see a diabolo-eye's-view of where you juggle.

note: Sean, thanks for your encouragement. I finally found a place to post it.

that was really cool. do you think you could film some tricks, like sun, around the leg. just things to see the different effect of it?

That's a good idea - especially around the leg. I wish I had thought of that before I dismantled it.
one problem - it was very heavy and not quite balanced.
