INTRODUCING THE OWL CAM from ANTIMEDIA on Vimeo.

Norwegian Film company presents the owl cam. Basically, a brushless gimbal mounted on a helmet.

Iam wondering if such a system could withstand the shocks of a skier jumping and going full speed (impacts + wind) in order to be used as a POV camera.

I'm a big fan of this kind of ideas, but I still believe there must be a better solution to stabilize footage other than a bulky gimbal.

Maybe a system like this could be the answer? 

Imagine a miniaturized version of these mirrors that you could plug in front of any camera. adding automatic subject tracking instead of remote controlled

System might withstand the shocks but neck may not :). Not a great idea when setup is bulky and mounted on human neck on such a bumpy ride..

I dream of a golf ball sized ptz camera with digital stabilization -can't be too hard these days
It should be much easier to move an image electronically rather than a mehanical device.

His demo cleverly only shows skiing & skating.  Let's see someone try this bit of brushless gimbaling:
