GoPro and Periscope have joined forces to turn you into a walking, one-person travel show.

TechCruch reports great news for those of you who not only enjoy capturing your adventures on a tiny camera but have a hankering to deliver a live feed of them as well.

The report states: “Action camera maker GoPro is integrating with Periscope, the livestreaming app from Twitter. Owners of the GoPro HERO4 cameras will be able to broadcast their adventures directly to Periscope.” For the moment, this is news that benefits iPhone users only.

For the unaware, GoPro is that brand of camera that sits cleverly atop the head of so many bicyclists and skateboarders recording their respective extreme journeys around town.

Periscope is an app that allows users to live stream their immediate experience in life to the kind of people around the world who haven’t yet heard of television.

Well, their misfortunate is your fan base, so continue streaming accordingly.

As GoPro explains, switching between your GoPro and phone feed will be seamless. In fact, you can now get a two-shot of that extremely delicious meal you are having while on vacation: “Much like a production switchboard, you can use your Periscope interface to flip between the two different camera angles, so even if your broadcast is lacking that heart-pounding action only GoPro can capture, you can still set up a two-camera shot for more dynamic story telling in real time.”

Travel images and video have become a truly immersive way to explore the world from the comfort of your own home.

A near ubiquitous device like GoPro being thrown into the mix means these live feeds will only become more vibrant and readily available.
