GoPro Flyover of Apple's Spaceship HQ Build Site Gives You The Scenic Tour

When GoPro's versatile cameras first hit the market, they became an instant hit. Finally, ordinary users were able to capture some cool lifestyle footage without having to break their bank accounts. Now, drones have hit the market in a big way, and when combining them with a GoPro, some truly fascinating footage can be captured.

In case you missed it, we talked about one such example of this in early July, after an owner of a drone and GoPro took advantage of his local Independence Day fireworks. Interestingly, I saw someone do the exact same thing in my eastern Canadian town for Canada Day fireworks, so this solution is one that's really catching on fast.

Now, it's Apple's upcoming "Spaceship" campus that's been treated to this high-flying GoPro action. This Cupertino-based campus is far from completion, but that doesn't make this footage any less interesting. Cupertino really isn't a big city, so to see a campus this enormous situated there is quite something - it looks like it'd take a solid 4 or more minutes to drive the perimeter of the blocks it dominates.

The video really doesn't show that much outside of a top-view - it doesn't fly near the ground at any point, probably in fear of the existence of Apple iTurrets. Even if you're disinterested in the campus itself, this kind of video really shows what's possible with a GoPro and a drone. This is really only the beginning. As for the campus, it's going to be quite the thing to behold once it's completed.

lol, apple iTurrets.

I got to play with a Phantom 2 this summer and it immediately went into my top 3 most wanted gadgets. The 4th of July video was just stunning.

That is an exceptionally good point realneil the world in many ways has become so detached it is both horrible in many ways to watch and to realise that not really very many people realise and or the just feel overwhelmed by it and do nothing to change it as it is way "Larger" than they could ever hope to have any effect on, or at least they think so.

The concept on this is great but the end purpose of all the wasted resources when looked at in the way you point out is quite ridiculous really and of course most will just dismiss it but it is someone looking for and or projecting grandeur of themselves their group etc without realizing that in the end it really does nothing but project an external viewpoint that other than image projects nothing more than a valueless end product which in the just says look at "me" or "us" as "I" or "We" are just so cool.
