Here's a true timelapse video of a day in lab. Pictures were taken every minute for 24 hrs. The video goes from about 4am to 4am the next day.
And because someone asked...The images were taken with a GoProHD Hero camera and then compiled in Windows Live MovieMaker. Images are displayed for 0.1 seconds.

What's the organism in the bottom middle of the aquarium? It seems fairly active, but completely immotile (<--- can't think of the proper term).
It's an anemone. It moves because there's a really high water flow in the tank (2,400 gph). I think the snails are the coolest thing to watch in that video!
Did people know they were being recorded? Would be mighty embarrassing if someone were working late, thought they were alone, and, um........ :-)
Haha! Yes, I told them all :) You can see that Curtis came in around 3am. He works two jobs, 8 hrs in my lab and then 8 hrs in the hospital clinical lab.
Did I see the guy in the red shirt eat his lunch in the lab? And then later change his shirt?
Haha, I covered our EH&S guidelines concerning eating in lab in my last post. The Desk area is considered food safe.
