The GoPro has transformed the way that people capture sports and nature footage. Want to know what it looks like to hit the waves as a master surfer? That footage exists. Want to know what an eagle sees when it flies over France’s Mer de Glace? Go for it. But there are still plenty of ways to innovate (that don’t involve breaking your camera the first time you ever use it).
For instance, these parents figured out that the cutest use for the GoPro since some hero strapped it to his dog and called him to the beach is to remind us of the sheer joy of a good game of hide-and-seek when you’re a kid. To that end, they strapped a GoPro to their toddler, ducked into a closet, and let him go off on the hunt. As the video progresses, you can see the lil’ homie think about where he should look, investigate rooms, and eventually pick up a cue from the family dog to track them down. Hide and seek isn’t a game that most grown-ups spend a lot of time thinking about, but man, does that kid make it look fun.
