KisMAC wifi traffic signal/bytes visualisation

So I was playing with KisMAC 0.3 yesterday on a whim to determine the number of unauthorised or hidden Wifi Access Points I could see around me and was blown away by the 115+ AP’s found.

Anyways, KisMAC can produce some pretty graphs/eyecandy showing wifi signal strength and number of bytes over time. With such a large number of AP’s it can get pretty trippy. So I captured some of that content at a nice 720P resolution and put them on Youtube. The audio is a bunch of different random geiger counter sounds spliced together.
