Architecture of Radio App Lets You See the Hidden Wi-Fi Signals All Around You

If you are a fan of fun and unusual app, Architecture of Radio will make your heart skip a beat.


The app renders a 360° visualization of the digital world all around us. It uses your GPS location to give visual life to the signals around you.

Architecture of Radio uses data collected from 7-million cell towers, 19-million Wi-Fi routers, and hundreds of satellites. And it turns this massive network of signals into something extraordinary.

The app’s creator, Richard Vijgen, said:

The purpose of this app is to make the invisible visible so we can look at it, think about it and discuss it.




Mail Online reports:

The app plots the densities of digital signals, like radio waves, which exist outside the spectrum of visible light on a 3-D moving graph. It is site-specific, and works by reversing the ambient nature of the infosphere; hiding the visible while revealing the invisible technological landscape we interact with through our devices.
