GigaPan Time Machine

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Time lapse photography has always caught my attention, so when I found this site that sort of works along the same premise as time lapse photography to create time machines (or as I like to think of them time capsules) I knew I had to share it with you. 

I’d recommend that you start on About page and watch the Demonstration video. In seven minutes it fully explains how the time machines work, and what makes them different from regular time lapse technology. It explains it far better than I could. 

As for navigation – on the main page, pick a video that sparks your interest (I started with Plant Growth and ended up watching all of them) and then either read the information on the right of the page about the project you’ve selected or dive right in and press play and watch the time machine video.

What is really neat about these videos is that because of the way they are filmed you can zoom in and out as watch by using the plus and minus sign on the video.  You can also set what speed you watch the video in and whether it plays backward (from the finished product – so in the case of the plants, fully grown plants to seedlings) or forward from start to finish. The information on the right side of the video is amazingly in-depth in the topic and completely worth the read.

At the moment there are thirteen very neat videos to choose from so go check them all out!

    Sweet Amanda failed to mention this website has problems avec browsers. I visited the site with Internet Explorer 9, Pale Moon 12.3, Firefox 14.0.1 and an up-to-date Chrome browser and NONE could run the videos!

  2. Robert Sanders says:

    It would have been nice to know that the site only supports Google Chrome or Safari, and Not the two most used browsers in the world, Firefox anf Internet Explorer!

  3. Mark says:

    You might have mentioned that the site only supports Chrome and Safari for viewing the videos.

  4. Larry Petz says:

    Will not work with IE 8, or Firefox. Only works with Safari 5.0, and Chrome 7.0. I’m not downloading either one just for one website.

    I watched the “about” and found it very interesting but my excitement bubble was burst when I found that I had to have Chrome or Safari to view the videos. Strange since I have heard that Firefox is the browser most people use. I do not expect to use either Chrome or Safari due to unpleasant prior experiences so … if you don’t have/use either of the two…too bad. It SHOULD have been mentioned in your review; that was a serious omission!!!

    I was really interested in experiencing this. It is so unfortunate that the site is not supported by widely used IE! I had Google Chrome once and it messed up my computer bad!
    That site will have a very limited visit rate until they allow Internet Explorer.
    Because of that reason, I’m not interested.
