Microsoft Shows Off ‘Hyperlapse’ Video

Microsoft has demonstrated the results of an algorithm its developed to produce hyperlapse video: first-person time-lapse videos without the shakiness.

The idea is to solve two related problems: first-person videos from activities such as extreme bike riding can be a bit dull viewed in full in real time; but speeding them up to a timelapse video further exaggerates the shakiness of the footage, to the point that “traditional” stabilization processing can’t cope.
