    sniff_jazzbox
    From the creator of metro-wardive


    la1n, creator of the recently released metro-wardive, has put out another application which resides in the same vein. What this does is read from the wlan waves in your area, and creates musical tones based on them. Full description and download below.

    [title:Description]sniff_jazzbox captures the wlans in the immediate area like a wardrive-tool and produces a stream of wlan-names. this stream of words might be understood as a subconscious expression of the presently existing communication networks. sniff_jazzbox renders private data visible, translates it and makes it audible as a melody of yearning for contact and exchange.

    the names of the captured hotspots contain playable tones of the musical notation system (c, d, e, f, g, a, h, c, fis, ces ...). as you walk, ride or drive through town you will inevitably encounter loads of hotspots which are accessible for your little machine. sniff_jazzbox is made for the portable Nintendo DS and NDS, it registers all the hotspots and turns them into music. Try it out! Walk through your neighbourhood or any town - preferably in the evening - and hear the wireless and invisble communication around you!

    I get terrible music from this app. Even worse than Michael Jackson

    I personally think this seems like a nerdy but cool little toy.
