Add an extra dimension to your camera work with WinGo Pro, a kind of boomerang wing for action cameras.

Designed to fit GoPro and other popular cameras, the WinGo lets you film 360-degree selfie videos. Consisting of a polycarbonate wing on a string, the device is designed to be swung around your head while the camera films.

Hold onto the string and spin the wing to film incredible videos, including the bullet-time effect made famous in The Matrix movie. In these kind of shots, the camera seems to move around you but you stay still, as if frozen in time.

For keen filmmakers the WinGo adds an extra dimension to your work that will make your videos stand out from the crowd. It looks like it will take some practice to get used to the device, but the manufacturer has also published a course on filming technique that comes included with each purchase.

The WinGo will retail for $75 and ship in September 2019. For the price you get the wing, a handle and rope, camera mount, elastic band and travel bag. All in all, it looks like an intriguing product, although perhaps on the pricey side for something most people won’t use often.

Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Even if the weather isn’t unpredictable in temperature, it can be unpredictable in the sense of not knowing whether a bad storm is coming or not. While it is challenging to pack for these types of trips, it is not impossible for travelers to pack the right objects and clothing for unpredictable weather.
