That guy's K-3 timelapses are even better. Have a look through his channel, some really good work.

This one is my favourite:

How does he get the camera to move / zoom during the time-lapse? It's very cool.

You can either use sliders and zoom motors attached to the lens, or simply do it in post-processing by defining a cropped area and have it move through the original frame. I assume he used the latter method.

stuff like shown on this page: 10 Pro Motion Control Time-Lapse Tips - Digital Photography School

I am looking forward to using this feature with the K-1... Knowing I can make 4K time lapse movies automatically will make me much more likely to make them than when I have to make them from the stills... (Page 61-62 of the manual)

I believe there are special rigs, but the poor man's version is to take different crops of a wider frame as you assemble your movie. After all, even 4K is just 8MP. So you can crop inwards, outwards, or pan from left to right within your frame.

(EDIT: beaten to the punch!)

Yes, the zooming I believe he did in post-processing, but at least some of the panning was apparently done with this motion-control device attached to the tripod mount:
