Software Stabilization for Video!

Via Google Research:

Casually shot videos captured by handheld or mobile cameras suffer from significant amount of shake... Our goal was to devise a completely automatic method for converting casual shaky footage into more pleasant and professional looking videos.

Eschewing the promo video, I decided to try and run the technique on a video I'd shot from a moving golf cart, that was moving, while climbing a hill, after I'd had a beverage or few. I've added the software stabilized, and the original videos below. Really quite incredible:
