Speed Riding Mont Blanc

Stunning. Beautiful. Adventurous.

I lived on Maui in the early 1970's when the first few guys flew hang gliders off the top of Haleakala (10,400 ft - 3,170 m MSL) to the sandy beaches of Makena. But all of those flights paled in comparison to what these six guys have done. I'm not even sure what to call this... paraskiing maybe?!

If you like flying, skiing, or just great views of nature's beauty, this is for you.

Autodesk Project Chronicle

I became aware of another Autodesk Labs cloud-based service tonite called "Project Chronicle", so it was worth some time experimenting with it. Hopefully this will be something they will either keep for a while or make fully available to subscription users much like Autodesk 360. Project Chronicle is a great way to create short videos like the one above.

You'll have to pardon my narration... but this was all done much like the creation of the block itself... completely on the fly!

To be able to view this full screen on the Project Chronicles website, place your cursor over the image above and click on the link in the upper left corner.
