The GoPro cameras are perfect for taking footage during outdoor activities. In extreme sports activities such as kayaking or cross-country cycling, you need both hands, so the camera has to be firmly fixed to the handlebar, for example. Bike mounts typically come with screws or knobs to help you fasten the camera.

But what if the screw or knob breaks or if you need to fasten the camera to a more exotic vehicle – e. g. the Yodix car that is available from Sculpteo? Designer Datheus created a simple but clever solution: the 3D printed GoPro Knob that allows you to attach or remove the camera quickly and to adjust the camera angle. Depending on how robust the fastening needs to be, you can have it printed in plastic, resin, alumide or even metal. While the alumide knob costs only 8 Euro, the metal one costs as much as 250 Euro.
