EA announced a next-generation reboot of the first-person parkour postal service simulator Mirror’s Edge at E3 this year, to the excitement of everybody who managed to play through the first game without vomiting on their own shoes. Here’s some real life Mirror’s Edge. turns out all you need to recreate the whole thing is red shoes, a Go Pro, a sexy glove and the ability to run up and down buildings like Spiderman.
The video comes courtesy of YouTube user Ampisound, who specialises in this parkour stuff. I tried parkour once, but I tripped over my own shoes before even putting them on. It’s probably not for me.
Some post-production editing to maker everything look white and red, and they’d have nailed it – but it’s still damned impressive, with some mighty free-running. Those of you prone to vertigo or motion sickness might want to look away.
