The background video is recorded from a camera feed that was filming a street scene continuously for 12 hours while the image was processed in real-time based on the live sound data of the street. As a result, it generates the pulsing effect, indicating the activity of the street. In the foreground, the grass movement is controlled by the location based weather data that is obtained through OpenWeatherMap's weather API.
