See and hear every change to every article on Wikipedia in real-time. Bells are sounded for additions and strings are plucked for subtractions. The pitch changes with the size of the edit – the larger the edit, the deeper the note. Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. Orchestral swells and a blue banner welcome new editors.

The app has support for English, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, and 27 other languages.

Way of the future ,

Very serene

Calming and and satisfying, the feeling that all this progress is being made is uplifting.
It would be great if there was some settings in there to make it an alarm clock. I'd love to wake up to the sound of human progress.
