The Hiperlapsed City és una instal·lació interactiva. Permet passejar per una ciutat virtual pedalant dalt d’una bicicleta.
Hem posat uns sensors a la bicicleta que mesuren la velocitat a la que anem i cap a on girem el manillar.
Aquests sensors estan connectats a un microcontrolador Arduino que informa l’ordinador per on volem anar.
A l’ordinador hi ha un software, programat expressament, que ens permet passejar i explorar la ciutat de Barcelona.

In The Hyperlapsed City visitors are able to ride a stationary bicycle (enabled with sensors) through a simulated representation of Barcelona city streets.

Riders can turn left, right, ride faster or stop the bicycle and the ride. Travelling through 6 different city routes they can explore and experience a journey along the city.

The Hyperlapsed City is a contemporary version of The Legible City by Jeffrey Shaw. Instead of a simulated representation of a city constituted by three-dimensional letters, visitors ride through an hyperlapsed version of the city. Hyperlapse photography is a technique that combines time-lapse and sweeping camera movements focused on a point-of-interest. Using this technique riders visit the streets of Barcelona in different seasons, moments and light; all in one ride, all in one city.
