Shhh… We Can Now Hear & See Wi-fi?

A new software called Phantom Terrains, developed by London-based science writer Frank Swain, can now help the deaf listen to the sounds of wi-fi signals.

The software would utilize the wi-fi sensors of an iPhone to pick up, analyze and transform the invisible data around us – in the form of wi-fi networks and radio waves – into audible sound which are then sent wirelessly to a customized Bluetooth-enabled hearing aid – see video below.

But it turned out that we can also see wi-fi signals – see pictures above and below.

In a project called “A creative exploration of wireless spectres”, artist Luis Hernan used a “Kirilian device” to capture the images of invisible wireless networks that levitate around us at all times every day – the resulting eerie and ghost-like images are no surprise because Kirilian photography is often associated with paranormal activity.
