What If We Could See WiFi Signals?

What would the world look like if we could see WiFi signals?
In a post for MyDeals.com, researcher and artist Nickolay Lamm teamed up with M. Browning Vogel, a former NASA employee with a Ph.D. in Astrobiology, to imagine a world with visible WiFi signals.
The images show an “idealized WiFi data transmitted over a band that is divided into different sub-channels, which are shown in red, yellow, green and other colors.”
Said Lamm, “WiFi is an energy field that is transmitted as waves. The waves have a certain height, distance between them and travel at a certain speed.”
“WiFi routers affixed to buildings, lamp posts and other object create a circular data field around them. These antennas have an omnidirectional signal that extends equally in all directions, shown as the circular bands.”
“WiFi broadcasts at a frequency between radio and microwaves, meaning that the waves or pulses are about six inches apart, as shown by the colored, circular bands. “
