Haha oh the potential for Hyperlapse experiments. On the flipside, it could also look like you strapped a GoPro to a cheetah and sent it running through the wilderness.

I wonder, if you drank a lot of coffee, filmed your over-caffeinated hike, and processed it with Hyperlapse, would the resulting video look as if it were playing back at normal speed?

Re: Video
Microsoft has a couple of examples of Hyperlapse videos on its website (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/hyperlapseapps/). Doesn't seem like it would work well at all for things like school plays or concerts, but it could be cool for people who like to film outdoor activites like hiking or snowboarding.

Re: Video
I'm confused. Is this going to just make everything look like a Benny Hill sketch? And for those to young to remember Benny Hill, I was going to link to one, but I can't seem to find one that doesn't involve someone losing their clothes.

Cool as the technology is, there's something sad about the need to compress video time. We've made it easy to create videos but editing remains a challenge.
