Technology and Recreation – a recipie for AWESOME

For gadget geeks like myself, there’s always been an opportunity to mix technology with what we do when AFK (away from keyboard).

My first heart monitor watch *had* to be imported because no one in this country was selling the IR receiver (connecting through a DB9 (serial) cable no less.. for the more normal, serial cables were “how things were done” before the simplicity of USB arrived).

Now, in an age of consumerism, the price AND capability of technologies is making the integration and capture of ones recreation activities so much more accessible to the masses. Sometimes this results in excellent video such as that embedded below from a New Zealand based spear fisherman who attached a GoPro camera given to him for his birthday to his speargun.

Sweet eh?
