After years of flips, drops, skinned knees, and a broken bone or two, this year you finally achieved that Tony Hawk signature trick you have been attempting since watching the 1999 X-Games. Too bad there was nobody there to witness it. Next time, record the action from your point-of-view with an action camera like the XS20 from Polaroid ($100).
Snap this small cam onto your helmet or strap it to your arm or leg, and then start recording those daredevil moves in high-definition 720p resolution at 30 frames per second. At less than 3 ounces, the weight won’t bog you down (it only looks big in the photo). The 5-megapixel camera takes still photos, too, and a waterproof housing means you can take it into the water or down the slopes. It has a 120-degree viewing angle, and the built-in battery allows for up to 3 hours of recording. The eight LED lights lets you keep filming even after the sun sets. Not into thrills? Use the XS20 as a security camera. It starts recording automatically when it detects motion.
You’ll need one of these cams if you want to start posting videos of your stunts to YouTube, and we have one waiting for one lucky winner. To enter, simply tell us an upcoming adventure that you would love to use this camera for (keep it clean, folks). Submit your answer in the comments before this contest ends in just one week on December 23.
