This is what the world would look like if you could see Wi-Fi

There are wireless signals bouncing around the room you're in right now. You can't see it, but electromagnetic radiation is all around you almost all the time. But what if you could see it?

It would probably look like this mind-bending visualization.

Artist Nickolay Lamm worked alongside an astrobiologist and former NASA employee, M. Browning Vogel, to create these images that depict what we would see if Wi-Fi signals were visible, and believe me, it's scary to accept that our world is covered in these signals.

"We are completely surrounded by an invisible system of data cables and radio signals from access points, cell towers and overhead satellites," information designer Richard Vijgen explains on his studio’s website.

Vijgen is creating an app that allows users to see the world of signals around them. This gives humans a real-time glance into the invisible pulse of the electronic world. These Wi-Fi signals are all around us, all the time. We just can't seem them so it's hard for us to believe that they're there.

What do you think about these depictions? Are they frightening or fascinating? I want to know what you think about this, so leave me a note in the comments section below.
