This is What Wi-Fi Looks Like

Wireless internet. This wonderful hidden energy all around all of us that connects us to people and then websites around the world. But what if you could basically see wireless internet? Exactly what would it be like? That is precisely the question artist Nickolay Lamm has wanted to answer. With the help of Astrobiologist M. Browning Vogel, he launched a number of images representing just what wi-fi would look like if it turns out to be visible to the human eye.

Wifi 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 wifi 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. This image shows an idealized wifi data transmitted over a band that is divided into different sub-channels, which are shown in red, yellow, green and other colors.

  1. so the color changes with signal strength? I thought it would change with frequency?

  2. Strange as I crazily can, in a certain light, see the swirls of energy that connect us all. Looks very much like the last photo.

  3. It looks a lot like the the Veil of Maya... interestingly.

  4. Electrosmog kills and can even be used to brainwash people. Read "Dirty Electricity" by Stanley Milham MPH, and "The Body Electric" by Robert Becker, MD. Government scientists have known for decades that electrosmog affects people and these technologies have joined television, pharmaceuticals, and fluoridation, as a method of modern mind control.

  5. Yay, so my cancer is gonna be rainbow?

  6. These are artist's concepts only.
    The conceptual representation of what the signals might look like is
    horribly inaccurate.
    I will spare everyone a diatribe on Maxwell's Equations.

    Yes, non-ionizing radiation exposure is a problem.
    But these drawings are no different than what we think dinosaur skin color

    Skip the paintings and follow the trail that Max has offered.

  7. Just a heads up for everyone here.

    These are simply artist's concept paintings.
    They do a very poor job of depicting what is really going on.

    The problem is far more complex than what is depicted in the paintings.

    And that that "height" of the waves is presented as something relative
    to elevation is just pure comedy.
    And far from reality!

    The idea that WiFi is in "a unique transmission band that can't be interrupted by other signals." is complete utter nonsense.

    WiFi has more than one "band".

    Typical US WiFi occupies the 2.4GHz ISM (license free Industry, Scientific, Medical band from 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz)

    WiFi at 2.4GHz shares the spectrum with lots of other devices that transmit
    and receive using totally different modulation protocols than what WiFi uses.
    A non-WiFi transmitter can seriously interrupt the ability of a WiFi transceiver to function properly.
    Put a bunch of 802.15 transmitters running data next to an 802.11 WiFi router and see how fast the WiFi becomes useless due to jamming from the 802.15 signals. (Both use the same 2.4 GHz ISM band)

    As for the colors representing the channels in the WiFi spectrum, the paintings totally miss the whole point.

    Would you care about the make and model of the car that hit you?
    Or the caliber of bullet that killed some one?

    I will spare everyone a diatribe on Maxwell's Equations.
    Go read through that on WikiPedia.
    Some one did a great job on it.

    Exposure to non-ionizing radiation is a serious issue.
    This story does a horrible job of conveying the concept and dangers.

    Better that you follow the trail that Max has offered.

    Even better that you get very fluent in trigonometry and calculus and
    differential equations and a first year of Physics.

    As for the reference to the interview with Dr. Vogel (Vokel?), assuming the
    text at

    is correct, Dr. Vogel is thoroughly incompetent to offer advice on this subject.

    Another choice is that Dr. Vogel does not exist, which is very likely, if not obvious.

    Two pages of web search links offered no information at all with regard
    to Dr. Vogel alone.
    Every single link did have a reference to artist Lamm and that he worked with said Dr. Vogel.

  8. Each color represents a different sub-channel. Not signal strength.

  9. If you could actually be aware of its presence, it would be like putting on a sleep mask. There are signals of various types, frequencies, and power levels, all around us. It's better not to see the end of the road coming.

  10. After seeing the lovely colours, it is still odd that we walk through them on a daily basis.
