A Gigapan is a machine that automates taking huge panoramic pictures. It’ll move the camera around and click the shutter for you to make a picture 100 pics wide and 100 pics deep, if you so desired. (Actually, I’m not sure what the upper limit on it is, but it’s still insanely amazing.)
So imagine the detail you could get by doing a time lapse with a Gigapan. Leave it to Carnegie Mellon to make something of it. Check out this amazing demo:

Watching the plants grow is mind-blowing.
