Visualizing Wi-Fi: What all those signals would look like if you could see them
802.11ac and 802.11n Wi-Fi stream out of our Apple AirPort routers at 2.4 and 5GHz and stream into our iPhones and iPads and iPods and Macs, but what would all those signals, the ones saturating us all the time these days, look like if we could see them? Well, Nickolay Lamm, with the help of Dr. M. Browning Vogel, took a shot at showing us on MyDeals:
I use Wi-Fi all the time and never really think about it. Like the Force, only informational rather than all super-powery, it just exists everywhere, between my AirPort Extreme and my Mac, between my iPhone and iPad. Since my water isn't boiling in the cup right now, and humans and animals alike still seem to be reproducing, and with no additional eyes compared to previous generations, all that Wi-Fi we're soaking in doesn't seem to have a downside. Yet seeing it visualized, live and in color, does seem to give it much greater substance.
Check out Lamm's article for the rest of pictures, and the story behind them.
