Are you tired of doing SUPER EXTREME things while crushing your favorite energy drink only to have the sweet, caffeinated nectar splash all over you, leaving you covered in a sticky mess?
Have you tried to capture your EXTREME SPORT pièce de résistance on your action camera only to find your video garbled by harsh vibrations and unwanted movement?
Are you tired of the same ol' same and looking for something that will truly invigorate you at the highest level of human experience?
Well, this product may be just what you're looking for!
For the first time (?), the worlds of Red Bull and GoPro have collided, spawning a product suitable for only the most EXTREME humans!
Don't worry about your Red Bull spilling while rally car racing to the ski hill, just use the cup holder and all those sweet G's will keep your Red Bull firmly planted in the can instead of all over your lap. Wanna take a sip? Just pull the trigger to lock the gimbal and chug away with ultimate energy intake control!
Unclip the cupholder at the hill, reload the gimbal with a fresh can (or fill up the empty one with water) and get ready to capture your 1080-inverty-supermctwist-thing on video! Just clip the GoPro mount to the top of the can and you'll have yourself a 2-axis stabilizing gimbal, all kitted out to be held or clipped on to your helmet, snowboard, jet pack, hot air balloon, etc. -- anywhere you have a GoPro quick release thing!
I've spent hours designing and refining this contraption into what I can only expect will be a groundbreaking product once it's actually printed and assembled. Feel free to print everything off and test it for yourself!
Some things to note:
- the rotating parts have been assembled upside down so that the whole gimbal unit can be printed flat (upside down). There are small connector pieces in the bushings to allow everything to be printed together. These will need to be broken after printing to allow the parts to rotate freely. Maybe a little acetone in those joints will break down the connectors and smooth things out a little.
- the trigger and lock prong mesh together and the trigger rotates on the trigger pin, which is inserted into the side of the gimbal part and glued.
- there is a ring on the back of the lock prong and hook on the handle so that you can stretch a rubber band between, keeping the lock prong disengaged when not in use.
- gopro redbull mount and gopro can mount need to be glued together. This was done to avoid having to print with a lot of support material
- cupholder and cupholder attachment fitting also need to be glued together for the same reason as above
- there shouldn't be a big need for support material besides under the gopro clip base on the handle
