Hyperlax lets you sit back and view Instagram hyperlapses while a Soundcloud-powered soundtrack plays

Want to peek at what's happening across the world—in superspeed? Hyperlax, a program that streams hyperlapses, lets you do just that.

Created by product manager Taylor Crane, the program uses the Instagram API to display Instagram hyperlapse videos as they are posted to the social media app in real time. Crane tells PSFK:

Hyperlax feels a bit like you’re traveling the world, it feels a bit voyeuristic, and above all it can be absolutely mesmerizing.

Although he was inspired by Hypermasher—a similar idea created by developer educator Andrew T. Baker—Crane also wanted to make a few changes to the concept in order to improve on the way hyperlapses are viewed.
