A recent graduate from the University of Maryland, College Park has used his engineering skills to create a device that revolves a GoPro (Hero 4 Black) around a person at high speeds to resemble the Matrix bullet time effect. This alumnus is also a stunt man specializing in pyrotechnics. He shows his pride for UMD by combining his talents of engineering and fire breathing in front of the McKeldin Library on campus.
Not many people gets a chance to feel what it’s like to be on fire in a controlled environment. After several attempts to do a stunt on fire that was worthy of a video, we only had enough fire retardant gel for more one stunt. Luckily Daniel managed to pull this off on the first attempt. It’s probably the most intense thing we have ever done and now it’s time to start searching for the next challenge of JoyRiders On Fire.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with any aspect of our fire stunts. We are especially thankful to Gabe and all his friends who are featured in the BTS video here:
