Cocktail Party Physics is never a blog to shy away from stunning imagery. Jennifer Ouellette has a gift for finding compelling images that make you say, “Of course!” about concepts in physics. Wi-fi, the communicative force of our times that is never as ubiquitous as we would like: how would it appear to us if we could see it? Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm shows us an interpretation that almost makes us wish for the visual noise to distract us from our smartphones.

Make sure to check out the other fascinating alternative views of our modern world on Lamm’s blog, and the rest of the links at Ouellette’s Physics Week in Review: August 10, 2013 at Cocktail Party Physics.
