GoPro has partnered with Twitter at this year’s Mobile World Congress to display skate and BMX stunts filmed on the streets of Barcelona via its Periscope platform.

Shot around the centre of MWC 2016, the initiative looks to showcase the on-the-move capabilities of the GoPro HERO4 Black.

Furthermore, through the partnership, GoPro hopes to hit home the sharing capabilities of its tech, underlining how video can by live-streamed through Twitter’s Periscope and shared on Twitter too.

From 3pm GMT, Periscope users can tune into a live-stream, captured via GoPro of Barcelona-based Kristian Krasimirov and French-born Aurelien Giraud showcasing their skate tricks and stunts on the forecourt of Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art.

Furthermore, BMXer Simone Barraco will rip through the Catalan capital hoping to demonstrate the power of the GoPro.
