Hyperlapse photography involves shooting a series of photographs over large distances and then stringing the photos together into a time-lapse video that zooms the viewer through the locations. Creating a real hyperlapse involves quite a bit of work, so the folks over at Teehan+Lax Labs decided to go virtual by turning to Google Street View to source the necessary photos.
The gorgeous hyperlapse video above was created entirely using Google Street View photos, and shows the locations visited by the Street View camera van in a way that’s very different from what you see through your browser.
That’s not all, though. In addition to creating the video above, the team actually developed a web app that can let you easily make your own!
It’s called Google Street View Hyperlapse. All you need to do is pick two points on a map using an “A” and “B” marker.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Red Letter Media for so succinctly summing up everything that was confusing about Prometheus.
We interrupt your usual schedule to bring you a very small pig descending a set of stairs.
AH HE JUMPS RIGHT INTO THE BOWL
Taking place in England the owners of the yard slowly kept adding sections to the contraption so when the squirrel learned one section and got the nuts, they’d add another section. It took over 2 weeks to get to the final product you see in the video.
This wins the internets today!

Fox is getting some things right with Prometheus’ viral marketing
Slo-Moe Thing of the Day: To promote its “zero microwaves” policy and prove that “microwaves ruin everything,” Moe’s Southwest Grill sticks a bunch of things that shouldn’t be inside microwaves inside a microwave and presses “start.”
This is fun to watch, but I’m not sure I really agree with the implicit message of the video, which is “If microwaves are bad for CDs, then they must be bad for your food”
High speed camera test. I love watching stuff like this.
OMG! When I saw the guy’s face, I thought they were going to shoot a baseball at it!

Jon Stewart on the Ron Paul Media Blackout
I didn’t realize it was this bad.
Wow. Yeah, Fox News is basically pretending Ron Paul doesn’t exist. This is infuriating
