This video of a GoPro in a dishwasher
does what it says on the tin. [SLYT]
Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov climb the 632 meter Shanghai Tower
, the second tallest building in the world after the Burj Khalifa. The video of their climb, Shanghai Tower (650 meters)
, is riveting.

Our Drone Future
— A short film by Alex Cornell. "Created with DJI Phantom Drones, After Effects, Premier, Logic, GoPro, and a liberal interpretation of FAA regulations". If not actually the future of domestically deployed drones, it's probably the future of sub-$2K filmmaking hardware (if you don't include the software licenses and, um, FAA fines).

Go Pro Grain Farming
Good, watchable videos of grain farming are hard to find, but using a Go Pro camera to document 2012 crop production on the Canadian prairies was a great idea.
"This is unprecedented footage of a small airplane crash from inside the cockpit
from two different views. Miraculously, everyone survived. The pilot will make a full recovery and the rest of us escaped with superficial injuries and feel very lucky to be alive." (Graphic accident footage, injuries are shown) [more inside]
WE VS. THE NIGHT
flex down a winding mountain face in the cold of the night, equipped with nothing but a couple headlamps to tear through the darkness. As they battle their way through each turn, they fall deeper into an un-explored realm of stoke.' [more inside]
MeFi has seen a GoPro camera attached to a sword
, but after running across a video of one attached to a Hula Hoop
(it'll make you dizzy) I decided to look for more and found a trove of sports, most of which are created by GoPro and as such may come across as advertising, but some are independently shot, so put that aside if you can. I'll probably never take up any of these activities, but I get an idea of what they're like via helmet or pole-cam. There's the Base Jump
; the GoPro at 80,000 feet (near space)
; Boogie Boarding Surf
; Racing up Pike's Peak
; Mountain Biking
; a Kayak Competition
; the 2010 Highlight Reel
and many more
. Damn, now I want one!
