Photographer Robert McIntosh created this impressive one-take shot using a deftly piloted palm-sized drone, a stripped-down GoPro, reverse playback, and the After Effects plugin ReelSteady to smooth out the motion. Here’s some of the raw footage prior to stabilization.
You’ll be holding on for dear life watching this POV footage captured from inside driver Rhys Millen’s Hyundai Genesis Coupe as he took a Time Attack Class 1 victory in the 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Shout out to Will Roegge for the awesome 4K footage.
Run along with athlete Calen Chan as he heads down the Skyladder parkour course built down the side of Tianman Mountain in China. Not only is the 999 step-tall course the longest on the planet, but its built on a 45° incline to add to the challenge. The slide part looks like fun.

Watch the season fade in and out over a farm in this short and sweet time-lapse. Photographer Will Strathmann shot the footage intermittently from 2015 to 2017. He tried his best to fly his drone on the same path then aligned the clips to pull off the transitions.

We’ve always wanted a real-life version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, so we could quickly dart from location to location. Red Bull envisions what downhill mountain biking might be like if extreme sports junkies had a portal gun in their bag of tricks.
YouTuber BANANENBUURMAN loves to build over-the-top dioramas and environments using a LEGO model train as his main form of transportation. He’s built a set that runs through an aquarium tunnel, a ridiculously long track, and even figured out how to do a loop de loop.
