Eurosport Shoots Bode Miller on Bomber Skis with Never-Before-Used Virtual Reality Camera December 08, 2015
Virtual reality video clip takes puts viewers in Bode's racing boots as he descends Birds of Prey course at top speed.
We have just returned from a very exciting trip to the ‘Birds Of Prey’ World Cup season opener in Beaver Creek, where Eurosport filmed Bode Miller forerunning the Downhill course at top speed on his Bomber 218 cm DH skis with a never-before-used 360-degree camera attached to his ski pole. (Get Bode's Keith Haring 'Red Snake' skis in an All Mountain version.)
After watching the video in VR Bode Miller confirmed, “This is by far the best way to experience ski racing I have ever seen.”
Along with Eurosport and Discovery, the United States Ski and Snowboarding Association, the International Ski Federation (FIS) and the Vail Valley Foundation also teamed up for this project. In its first 48 hours, the 360° video hosted on Facebook, recorded more than 350,000 views and was shared over 7,000 times.
