I made something like this with a ball-and-socket tripod head bolted to an old back-pack.

Here's a video of it.

You don't look bad, RE:diets they say diets don't work. Healthy eating and exercise has to be a part of your lifestyle, a "diet" is like white knuckling it/waiting for the horror to end.and also diets cause rebound effects(of weight gain) in many people.

Makes me realise I need to go URGENTLY on a diet. Half of the word is starving, the other half needs to go on a diet....
Filming your hands? Hah! Now I know how all those pr0n videos were made. Good instructable though.

Why do you need to film the floor?

That bracket looks a lot like the one that comes with a CODE3 Dash-lazer :) Witht he camera on your chest, does it move around when you breathe or is it stable?

Your are filming the movements of your hands, who are moving all the time. Breathing does not interfere, unless you cough or breathe with a lot of noise.
