New Art Exhibit Will Let You See The Wireless Signals All Around You

They're everywhere

The beauty of wireless communication is that it is wire-less. There are no visible, bulky cables tethering us to screens or phones. But just because something is invisible, doesn't mean it isn't there.

Now, Dutch artist and information designer Richard Vijgen has announced a new site-specific iPad app called the Architecture of Radio that will let visitors to a new exhibit actually see the wireless signals in the room, from Wi-Fi networks to satellite signals.

The exhibit will be on display at the ZKM Media Museum in Karlsruhe, Germany, from September of this year until next April. Gizmodo reports that there are plans to make the app available publicly later this year.
