it's a "census-designated place," not a city or a town.

It's mounted on a motorized pan/tilt head, and the lens is also connected the network, so the while group of cameras can be controlled a single operator, and they can also recall position / zoom / focus / iris presets as commanded by the rundown from the automation system.

Note that one is taking video and the other still pictures and nothing is being done to help the kid.

Robocams have been pretty standard for the past 15 years or so. WGN is actually kind of unique in that we do employ a number of full-time camera operators, as our main newscast has two Stedicams and one crane, and as part of the new build I'm adding a third Stedi and a second crane.


Here's one of the old robots:




And the existing crane:




And one of the Stedis, resting on its tripod:

I went to K1 Speed last night with a singles group. Ran into the crew from ETS and ended up hanging out with them the rest of the time. I happy to report there were no women there I was interested in impressing. It would not have gone well.

I'm glad he's the one who got it. Its likely he got screwed out of the record a few weeks ago from faulty timing equipment.

The pink area is the end of the video, and the road next to the white dashed line is not in the video.

There is a pulloff along the long straight in the peach area that is a 24/7/365 gathering spot for people likely to be featured in internet videos just like this. Most normal out-for-a-Sunday-jaunt riders have a healthy fear of riding through the peach area for fear of what the giant douches going in and out of the turnoff are going to do. 100% of your brainpower is devoted to keeping one of them from killing you along that particular 1/4 mile stretch. I have personally seen 2 live crashes happen in front of me there, and driven past at least half-dozen fresh incidents, including one guy where I saw his exposed tib-fib that I swear one of his buddies was about to pee on to help sterilize it.
