Google Street View Hyperlapse Project
Design studio Teehan+Lax has created a really neat tool for generating virtual car rides time-lapses using imagery from Google Street View. The experiment, called Hyperlapse, stitches together all the images between two points on Google Maps into a fast-moving time-lapse that you can pan around. The animation moves fast because of the relatively larger interval between "frames", so it works best in long stretches of open freeway (though my gut inclination is to test my daily commute route). The project is also hosted on Github.
