Have you ever wondered what the world would look like if invisible radio signals — such as those from Wi-Fi antennas — could actually be seen? Apparently, someone else did, and the results are somewhat creepy.
Gizmodo reported Saturday that MyDeals.com artist Nickolay Lamm has visualized what some of the world might look like if humans could actually see those invisible Wi-Fi signals flying all around us.
The result is a handful of images that put a visual spin on something we take for granted each and every day, and provide a pretty cool glimpse into how wireless technology works in the first place.
"Wi-Fi is an energy field that is transmitted as waves," Lamm notes on the MyDeals blog. "The waves have a certain height, distance between them and travel at a certain speed. The distance between Wi-Fi waves is shorter than that of radio waves and longer than that of microwaves, giving Wi-Fi a unique transmission band that can't be interrupted by other signals."
Lamm worked with former NASA Ames researcher M. Browning Vogel, who boasts a Ph.D. in Astrobiology. Be sure to check out all of the images on the MyDeals blog!
