Wheeeeeeeee!: Make Your Own 'Traveling At Hyperspeed' Videos Using Google Maps
Teehan+Lax Labs developed Hyperlapse, a free tool you can use to make videos out of the pictures from Google Maps. You just enter a route, adjust the viewing angles along the way, and TA-DA, a hyperlapse video of the walk from my apartment to the liquor store. Will there be bums?! SPOILER: there are always bums.
Hit the jump for a video demo of the possibilities, then piss away a half hour at work on a Friday making your own (you deserve it).
Thanks to Professor Y, who sat next to Professor X through grade school because their teachers always had them sit alphabetically.
