For many, the notion of Wi-Fi signals and radio waves floating through air can seem pretty abstract. We know that we're constantly surrounded by wireless signals, but we can't seem them or perceive their presence -- until now.

A new app called The Architecture of Radio makes the idea of radio waves much more accessible, creating an awe-inspiring graphic representation of the myriad of wireless signals flying around overhead:

Creator Richard Vijgen describes the app as "a realtime, location-based visualization of cell towers, wifi routers, communication, navigation and observation satellites and their signals." On his website, he notes that he is currently designing a site-specific version of the app that also visualizes wired communication technology.

"Its aim is to provide a comprehensive window into the infosphere."
