Now you can relive the thrill of the time you went from your house to a coffee shop to your job to a sandwich place to the grocery store to your house to a friend’s house to a bar and then back to your house. And you can watch yourself do it as though you’re a laser beam, zipping from Point A to Point Z and all points in between.

Foursquare’s recently-launched Time Machine feature not only gives you a visual representation of all the places you’ve checked in, but shows you which types of places you check in at most frequently.


As you can see in the above video that a Foursquare user was kind enough to upload to YouTube, all the hopping around happens pretty quickly in the auto-playing visualization. Fortunately, as Wired reports, you can also use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to hop around one stop at a time.

This whimsical journey isn’t too fascinating for those of us who signed up for Foursquare, checked in at two places, and gave up. But for those of you who have been clogging up people’s Twitter feeds and Facebook walls, you’re in for quite a trip down memory lane.
