It’s time to take a trip, and you don’t even need to get up from your desk! This is Google Street View taken to the next level. The new time-lapse technology is called Hyperlapse and all you need to do is choose your route and let the journey begin![middle_ad kw=”flights to London”]
Start your virtual road trip on Hyperlapse.js which transforms any route from Google Street View into a virtual time-lapse trip. In a nutshell the whole project is an experiment to create “interactive Google Street View hyper-lapse animations.” In other words, pretty wicked cool videos of the world.
How does it work?
Hyper-lapse photography is a technique that combines time-lapse and sweeping camera movements that are typically focused on a single point of interest like how you move through Google Street View. To create a video out of these images you need a lot of time and a careful eye to “stitch” all the photos together. T+L Labs, the team behind Google Street View Hyperlapse, designed a pretty impressive tool so you can create your own Hyperlapse “road trips” from your desk. Amazing.
Amazing, right? Give it a try and make your own virtual road trips!
