First person POV + Time lapse + Stabilization = Hyperlapse

Microsoft Research shares news of the new video stabilization technology, Hyperlapse:

We present a method for converting first-person videos, for example, captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling, into hyper-lapse videos, i.e., time-lapse videos with a smoothly moving camera.

The results are impressive. This is what it must feel like to be Superman on his way home from picking up milk at the corner store.

So when will it be available?

We are working hard on making our Hyperlapse algorithm available as a Windows app. Stay tuned!
