Time-lapse shows how it feels to be drunk at the local fair

We all know the deal: Deep fried food, horrible music, rigged shooting games and cheap alcohol. But there is something about local fairs that makes them irresistible. This time-lapse shows what that thing is. A wonderful world of lights, colors and big moving objects that feels like a dream. » 8/19/14 11:31pm Yesterday 11:31pm

Time lapse of an airport makes airplanes look like shooting stars

Aside from going through security and lugging around your carry on and rushing to the gate and avoiding human swarms, airplanes are magical places. Okay, maybe not. But there's beauty in how they operate. Just watch this ballet of airplanes at Shanghai's airport. It's like seeing man made shooting stars. » 8/14/14 9:35pm 8/14/14 9:35pm

Get a Rare Peek at Everyday Life In North Korea From a New Timelapse

Although we have a pretty good idea of what life is like in North Korea, most of what we actually see comes from carefully controlled images released by the government. "Enter Pyongyang" is an incredibly beautiful video that was shot by a Beijing-based tour company, and it might give us the most honest look yet at the… » 8/08/14 6:20pm 8/08/14 6:20pm

Fermenting beer time lapse shows one beautiful breathing sludge monster

Watching the fermentation process of beer is a lot like seeing a brown sludge monster grow in strength. It's not pretty. But then you remember how delicious beer tastes and how wonderful it makes you feel and you forgive it for looking so unsightly. Or at least I did. I think this time lapse is beautiful. » 8/07/14 11:00pm 8/07/14 11:00pm

This is the coolest object disintegration video I've ever seen

We have featured time-lapse videos of objects being sanded down one millimeter at a time before, but this film by Mexican illustrator and animator Simon Gerbaud is the best I've ever seen. I would keep watching that shoe GIF forever if there weren't so many other awesome examples here: » 7/24/14 12:42am 7/24/14 12:42am

Nothing says summer like these slow melt ice cream time-lapses

This is exactly how summer feels like here in Spain. Everything seems to be melting around me: Trees, buildings, dogs, even me. Despite the air conditioning I feel like I'm slowly melting on my chair. That's what Mateo Cabeza—a filmmaker based in Seville, Spain—seems to be thinking too. » 7/22/14 7:51pm 7/22/14 7:51pm

Seeing ice cream melt in a time lapse is oddly satisfying

The only thing bad about eating ice cream during the summer is how fast the frozen deliciousness melts. After two minutes, it's dripping onto your elbows and your forearm is sticky for the rest of the day. No one likes melted ice cream. That's why it's so bizarre that watching ice cream melt in this time lapse by … » 7/08/14 11:56pm 7/08/14 11:56pm

Fascinating time-lapse video shows one month of activity at a busy port

Witness a month-long time-lapse of loading and unloading at the Port of Long Beach, California and other impressive footage. Such a simple concept—packing goods to float across the ocean or removing them to deliver across the country—but even with the process running like clockwork, it is clearly a complex business. » 7/03/14 10:33pm 7/03/14 10:33pm

Computers are now automatically selecting the best embryos for life

These time lapses are captured by a computer that automatically tracks embryo growth from the moment the sperm enters the egg during in vitro fertilization. It selects the best candidates for implantation in mothers, using special algorithms that look for some key markers during the cell division process. » 6/23/14 2:06pm 6/23/14 2:06pm

The Internet's Eye Candy: Drones Videos Are the New Time Lapse

Remember when the internet was bursting at the seams with splendorous time lapse videos showing off bustling metropolises and exotic corners of the globe? Well, there's a new visual novelty act in town, and it hovers noisily above your head, peering down at earth with a fisheye lens. » 6/23/14 10:07am 6/23/14 10:07am

Nine-year time-lapse video shows how to make a nuclear fusion reactor

This time-lapse video shows the assembly of the most modern nuclear rector of its kind by the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany. Work on the Wendelstein 7-X fusion device has taken nearly ten years so far—here it is condensed down to just three minutes. » 6/13/14 12:50pm 6/13/14 12:50pm

From 1914 to 2014, here's what a hundred year difference looks like

Some things change, some things stay shockingly the same. It's funny how a hundred years can be such a long time in some places but be just like yesterday in others. This "time lapse" shows how much (and how little) the world of Antwerp has changed from the beginnings of World War I until now. » 6/04/14 12:41am 6/04/14 12:41am
