    GoPro Black Edition, THE REAL BLACK EDITION!

    Every now and then a person has a great idea. My latest one, was sparked as I pulled into a Saturday Cars and Coffee yesterday. I had no real reason to mount the gopros, but i wanted to test the bigger SD cards and the HD settings. FYI, they all work as intended.. (hopefully youll see the results tonight Click here to enlarge )

    But as I pulled in, I drew a crowd. Not solely because of the car this time. It was because I had a camera on the front and one on the rear bumpers.

    As anyone involved in what we do knows, the gopro has changed the automotive performance world. GoPro's are very easily reckognized now, more so if left on the outside of the car. This may draw some unwanted attention in certain groups or during some activities...

    In an attempt to reduce the visual signature of such hardware, I give you the GoPro, LM Edition Click here to enlarge

    After:

    Its about 90% clean. Most important thing is to ensure the lense is clear,the screen is clear, and the red "recording" light is visible (Hero1 has 1 on front, Hero2/3 have multiple on different sides)

    The angle makes it look less clean than it is, but the cuts are straight.

    Ill put these to the test tonight Click here to enlarge

    Very good mod it should be black to begin with so easy to hide at night. So what did you do? Just paint?

    Pleas go over the steps.

    I have a very accurate accelerometer for sale if you are interested. It's a 2-axis, 60hz, serial interface, and can handle 10g in all 4 directions (sustained w/ accuracy that I cannot recall) - but it's very accurate. You would need to interface it with something like a RaspberryPi or something, but it wouldn't be too difficult.
