MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - You can now tour the world virtually from your desktop computer with an experiment being developed using Google's Street View images.
"Google Street View Hyperlapse" creates animations from the massive database of Google Street View images. Simply choose a "Point A" and "Point B," hit the "Create Hyperlapse" button, and wait as the site builds an animation of the trip.
You can even set a point on the map to keep the view focused on, or look around in any direction while the animation is running.
Hyperlapse does require WebGL, and is best viewed in the Google Chrome browser with a decent desktop computer.
