On Thursday, Instagram released Hyperlapse, a new app for creating time-lapse videos.
Many users responded by making ho-hum videos of their offices—understandable, given how much time we spend at work. But another daily routine proved a far better test for the new app: the daily commute.
Here are a handful of Hyperlapse videos we chose for their sense of movement and place: a drizzly drive to Mount Fuji (complete with dashboard ornaments), a dazzling day on the Bosphorus, a bike ride in the Netherlands, and more.
We look forward to seeing more, but please be careful out there: Don’t Hyperlapse and drive.
