Nice idea, but unfortunately, head movements make it impossible to capture decent footage. And PC Advisor readers will be well aware of the dangers of keeping your eyes glued to your lavish new Ventura trucks while riding fakie.

You could alternatively get someone else to film you, lining up the shot with the built-in laser pointer (there's no viewfinder, for obvious reasons) but the laser switches off when you start recording.

Downloading your footage to a PC couldn't be simpler, and it's easy to produce effects any 7-year-old would be proud of.

It's rather expensive, and not terribly robust - and we doubt this would be a wise investment for those of us who are more Tony Hart than Tony Hawk. But if you really must be down with the kids, this could be the answer.
