Who hasn’t wanted to experience the life of a Jedi at least once in their life? The adrenaline of facing down an AT-AT walker, the unbelievable power of throwing Storm Troopers aside with the wave of a hand, the feel of a lightsaber’s hilt in your hand — it’s every fanboy’s dream.
Well, one talented Star Wars aficionado has taken it upon himself to offer you as close to a real-world Jedi experience as you can get while sitting at your computer. YouTuber BillyWarp1 strapped on a GoPro and took to the desert to wave around a metal pole. After using his computer graphics expertise to add in some Storm Troopers, a TIE Fighter, and even some Rebel air support, he created a viral video that’s essentially a first-person perspective of being a real-life Jedi knight.
If as a kid you ever dreamed of viewing the world from Superman’s perspective, you finally have your chance: The good folks at Corridor Digital have created a video in which the Man of Steel finds a GoPro and straps it to his head, recording the journey as he returns the camera to its owner.
It’s a fun piece that not only provides a nice tour over, and through, Southern California, but shows off the talent of Corridor Digital, which has produced some other YouTube videos you may have seen. There’s also a lengthy look behind the scenes at the making of “Superman With a GoPro.” Watch them both below.
