Google Street View Hyperlapse

A way to start the Thursday morning: getting dizzy by watching this Google Street view hyperlapse:

Teehan+Lax has a tool so you can make your own hyperlapse from Google Street images:

Hyper-lapse photography—a technique combining time-lapse and sweeping camera movements typically focused on a point-of-interest—has been a growing trend on video sites. It’s not hard to find stunning examples on Vimeo. Creating them requires precision and many hours stitching together photos taken from carefully mapped locations. We aimed at making the process simpler by using Google Street View as an aid, but quickly discovered that it could be used as the source material. It worked so well, we decided to design a very usable UI around our engine and release Google Street View Hyperlapse.
