Nevermind the safety concerns (the police did). There is something absolutely exciting about exploring a city (especially one with height) through a lens that offers us a perspective unlike any other. This project becomes very interesting when you begin to think about what google earth has done for digital-urban exploration. Techniques like these offer us new ways to think about presence, urban exploration, delivery, location. Unlike google street view you are witnessing a real-time camera feed and can react with the real-time environment. I like the fact you wear the googles and fly a plane, reminds me of my youth…ahh Microsoft Flight Simulator 98

Pilot claims in interview he has 120 mile range with control and camera feed. Awesome.
