Wi-Fi Signals Visualized In Brilliant Colors

Wi-Fi is a big part of our everyday connected life, yet our appreciation of this invisible force doing quite a lot of our work remains mostly ignorant. Former NASA employee Dr. Vogel teamed up with visual artist Nickolay Lamm (previously here and here) to depict the omnipresent wifi signals and waves into visual characteristics.

As Dr. Vogel explains, in a very simplified language:

Wi-Fi is an energy field that is transmitted as waves. The waves have a certain height, distance between them and travel at a certain speed. The distance between Wi-fFi waves is shorter than that of radio waves and longer than that of microwaves, giving wifi a unique transmission band that can’t be interrupted by other signals. Wi-Fi waves are about 3 to 5 inches from crest to crest.
