The Japan Earthquake, captured by citizens as it happened

Major events are now captured in far more detail than ever before, thanks to the vast number of cheap video cameras out there. The Internet makes it easier than ever to share these defining moments too.

TwoFourtySixPM.com is testament to this shift. It displays 15 YouTube clips of Friday’s earthquake in Japan, playing simultaneously to show how citizens around the country captured it.
