Hyperlapse – Make your Street View Journey a Visual Adventure

I’m sure we’ve all spent hours and hours ‘walking’ around in Google Street View, but now Teehan+Lax Labs have created a tool called hyperlapse that turns your journey into something potentially visually stunning. It allows you to create a pannable timelapse of any journey that will play forwards and backwards – and the effect is quite something to behold. It works better on shorter journeys as every hyperlapse is the same length, although I’m sure as the site is updated this will be changed. The developers originally wanted the application to be used as a reference for a traditional hyperlapse, but realised they could use the street view data as the source material. It is available free online here. Video after the break.
