Dear Skiers, Curbed Wants Your Best Hyperlapse Videos

Hyperlapse, the technology that distilled a $15,000 piece of video equipment into a free iPhone app, is undoubtedly changing the way we look at cities, or at least the way we Instagram them. If you haven't heard of it yet, here's all you need to know: take a few seconds to download it in the iTunes app store, watch this tutorial, and play around. Unsurprisingly, Curbed is enamored with Instagram's novel turn towards timelapse technology and wants to see the way you've been using it. So, this is the official call: we want hyperlapse videos of demolitions, rush hour traffic, construction sites, and, well, even potholes being covered. Send them directly to Curbed. The only rules? Keep it interesting, clean, and make sure it encapsulates the energy of your fair city.
