Introduction: How to Make a Substitute for a GoPro With Your Phone

A GoPro, or a helmetcam is pretty cool. But is it cheap? The answer is no. Or is it?

Step 1: You Will Need:

Step 2: The Main Body

Take a piece of duct tape and rip it in half. Now put it on your phone with sticky side out. Wrap a piece around the previous tape. Still sticky side out.

Step 3: The Main Body

Pick up your other half duct tape piece and attach it to the bootom piece. Pull out a new piece and place it around.

Step 4: The Closing and Opening System

Slice one more in half. Place it under the pocket. Now place one over the last one. Take a smaller piece and fasten it to the end.

Step 5: Attach It Anywhere!

you can duct Tape this to your helmet or you can use it as a wrist cam. I will be showing you this in the next step.

Step 6: Wrist Cam

Fold your rubberband so it looks like the first picture. Cut three small pieces and stick them to each other like shown. One at the bottom one at the top and one at the bottom again. Tape this figure around the rubber band with an other piece of tape.

Step 7:

Tape this down to the opposite side of where the camera is.

Step 8: Go Out and Film!

You can probably tape this almost anywhere you want! I would not recommend bringing it to the swimmingpool, though. Remember to always have fun.

Then i just tape it to my helmet and voila!
