Technology is always improving, and HD video eyeglass cameras for police and extreme sports now look just like regular glasses. You may have seen these normal-looking eyeglass cameras in use on various undercover or investigative reality TV shows.
Using an eyeglasses camera, here are some views that we’ve all wanted to catch a photo of, but weren’t able to until now. (There are no loose items allowed on most roller coasters.) This is a view of the loop and lift tower as seen from the second brake run. [Read more…]

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has become a Christmastime tradition in Central Florida. The lights debuted at the Studios on Nov. 24, 1995, but they weren’t dancing to the music until 2006.
From 1995 to 2003, the spectacle lit up Residential Street, part of the Studio Backlot Tour. In 2004, the lights moved to their current home on the Streets of America. The display uses 10 miles of twinkling rope lights.
The display started in Little Rock, Ark., at the home of Jennings Osborne. Disney offered to display the lights at Disney World after Osborne’s neighbors started complaining about the bright lights and extra traffic. Osborne and his family now visit the display at Hollywood Studios after Christmas each year. The Osbornes also sponsor light displays in 32 cities in Arkansas. You can read more about the family on their Web site: jenningsosbornefamily.com
Here are three different videos of the lights dancing to different songs. First up is “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” by Leon Jessel and Edward B Marks Music Company.
Here’s “Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24” by Trans Siberian Orchestra.
The last video is a Christmas classic, “Feliz Navidad” by Jose Feliciano.
There are more hidden Mickeys to find in the display than ever before. You have to look up, down and all around.
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will be lighting nightly at dusk through Jan. 4, 2010.
