I am forever searching the web for something awe-inspiring. I think I found just that today!
Teehan+Lax Labs posted a pretty awesome post of a video that takes all of those flat Street View images from Google Maps and creates a hyperlapse video out of it.
What is hyperlapse? Well, to literally quote from them “It’s a technique that combines time-lapse photography with sweeping camera movements focused on a point of interest.” – Couldn’t have said it better myself!
Upon watching it I thought I’d like to try it but it’s not that smple! The design firm says that it took them “many hours of stitching together photos to create the video”. I don’t mean to directly repost the article but it is imforamtive to know that “Interestingly enough, Google Street View images became its source material for this time lapse project and eventually resulted in the creation of what it calls a usable interface around its engine.”
This makes me wonder what the future holds for such a powerful and creative invention. The script is free to download and although I’ve had a bit of experience with coding I don’t think this is a project I will be taking up any time soon.
Well done to the team!
