1.5-Year Spinning Selfie Time-Lapse Makes Us Wish Our Lives Were More Exciting

We’ve seen some really creative time-lapse videos that take stock of a year or more in someone’s life. They range from one second of footage every day day for a year videos — an idea that got so popular it became somewhat cliché (though it’s still something you should try) — to a lip sync video that took three years to make.

So today, although we have more cool gadgets and gizmos from CES 2014 to share with you, we thought we’d start the day (well, in the US it’s the start of the day…) by reliving one of the biggest parties of the New Year in time-lapse. Read more…
