Light painting the WiFi signals

Have you ever wondered how would WiFi signal strength map look like?
Well here is an artistic depiction of just that.



"This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting."

  11. @Navi, yeah i know what you mean. Some parents in our local school district started protesting free WiFi at schools because it MIGHT be giving cancer to the kids. None of this is proven as of yet, bu then again if you start worrying about everything giving us cancer, you might as well start living underground or in lead houses. lol
