Baby Boomers and Technology Evolving

Baby Boomers and Technology Evolving

As a representative of the baby boomer generation, I am lucky to have seen and experienced the evolution of technology over the years. Technology’s ongoing advancements make almost everything more convenient these days. I’m still in awe at how the internet has changed the world in numerous ways – how it lets us connect with distant people, how we can explore and find new things we never knew existed until we see it on Google, how fast things spread and so much more!

Plus, I couldn’t imagine that life would be so much easier with the help of the cool gadgets available today. You can simply download a game, different apps ranging from social, photo to video sharing instantly and most of them are free of charge!  These gadgets are generally referred to as apps and are great on your mobile devices.  On the computer the different browser refer to them as extensions.

Instagram's Hyperlapse App

A new app that’s starting to create a buzz in the social community is Instagram’s Hyperlapse. I’ve seen a few awesome videos and read a lot of good reviews about it.

Hyperlapse Overview – Instagram’s Latest New App

Hyperlapse, Instagram’s latest creation, was launched about a week ago. The new app makes it possible for its users to record and create time-lapse videos. The app itself can create creative videos without the help of professional video editors and without the use of any fancy recording equipment. All you need is a smart phone or a tablet, download the app, record a short video then edit it using the Hyperlapse interface.

What makes it more exciting is you get to share your inner cinematography skills and amateur video with your friends on Facebook and Instagram at a touch of your fingertips. How cool and convenient is that?

I’ll download the app and will try to create a video along with my grandkids this coming weekend.

Here’s a couple of astonishing videos created by other users using the Hyperlapse app. Enjoy!
