説明

The infosphere, Visualized.

Every time we use our phones, tablets or laptops we are entering an invisible world of wireless digital signals. It is a world that we cannot see but that is literally all around us.
The Architecture of Radio is a 360 degree data visualization of what this world might look like. It shows the cell towers, GPS satellites and Wi-Fi routers around you that allow us to live our digital lives.

New: support for Iphone X, XR, XS and XS Max Screens
New: Cardboard support!
Immerse yourself in the Infosphere in Virtual Reality using a cardboard or compatible headset*

*Carboard support only for iPhone. iPhone 6s or newer recommended for best performance.

Why should I use this app?

Out of curiosity! We are increasingly dependent on a global ecosystem of digital signals. We use them for so many things, yet we cannot see them. We can see the roads we use to travel, the buildings we live in, but not the infrastructure that is changing the world. How can we understand this world without understanding how it works?
The purpose of this app is to make the invisible visible so we can look at it, think about it and discuss it.

Why Should I not use this app?

This app is not a measurement tool. It’s purpose is to inspire, to see the world through a different lens. The app is based on real world data and gives you a pretty good idea of the density of digital signals around you, but it won’t tell you where to move the couch to get a better WIFI signal.

So how does it work?

The Architecture of Radio is a data visualization, based on global open datasets of cell tower, Wi-Fi and satellite locations. Based on your GPS location the app shows a 360 degree visualization of signals around you. The dataset includes almost 7 million cell towers, 19 million Wi-Fi routers and hundreds of satellites.

Is this really what radio signals look like?

We can’t see radio with our eyes. The waves that we use for our cell phones and Wi-Fi are way outside the spectrum of visible light. In order to “see” radio, it has to be interpreted or translated into an image that we can see. There are many ways to do that but it will always be an interpretation.

The Architecture of Radio is an impression of the infosphere, a way of seeing it.

雰囲気を楽しむもの

公開されている基地局やWifiルーターの情報をもとにシュミレーション画像を表示しているだけのアプリ。空間や部屋に存在する実際の4G電波やWifi電波を捉えて表示しているものではないことに注意。アート(インスタレーション)作品の一種だと考えたほうが良いかも。

面白い!

こういったアプリがどんどん進化して電波が視覚化できる時代が来るのを願っております!

通信衛生がいっぱい♪

仕事柄無線LANの設置業務が多くあり、これを使い電波干渉具合を見れればと思い購入しましたが実際に見えたのは、天に広がる通信衛生たち。打ち上げた年や国が一目でわかり、名前を検索して何用の衛生なのかを調べたりともう通信衛生に夢中!更に近くの携帯基地局も調べてくれてそこまでの距離がメートルで出る。すごく楽しいARアプリですが無線LANの電波は一切拾いませんので今はまだ★1です。今後の機能改善を期待します。
