That laptop in front of you is hiding a beautiful secret. Radiating from its hard drive, optical drive and tiny motors is a force field of magnetic and electric charges. Called an electromagnetic field, it’s invisible to the human eye—usually. But a recent project from two designers at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design have made the invisible visible. Luke Sturgeon and Shamik Ray have created light paintings from the EMFs emitting from our everyday electronics. The result are ghoulishly pretty images showing wisps of light floating above a laptop and flowing from a radio’s speaker.

The project was part of a week-long experimental imaging workshop at CIID that asked students to visualize the invisible everyday phenomena, no digital retouching allowed. To get their images, Sturgeon and Ray holed themselves up in a pitch-black, totally silent room for three days to experiment with different visualizations and processes. They ended up creating their own Android app in Processing that would allow them draw and map EMFs. The phone, with its built-in magnetic sensors, acted as a sort of “light brush” that reacted based on the strength of the EMF being read.

Well that's pretty cool. I'm not too sure I like the idea of those waves on my privates though.


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Quote:* Consider purchasing a radiation shield to help block some of the radiation emitting from your computer monitor. The NoRad Corporation produces a computer radiation shield they claim is certified as the most effective product for blocking video display terminal non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation. Independent tests have shown the NoRad shield eliminates 99.99% of virtually the entire electric field and better than 50% of the magnetic field above 30 Kilohertz. (Address given below.)

* Laptop computers with an LCD (liquid crystal display) type monitor are said to emit substantially less radiation than regular monitors (though there is still some radiation). If you are truly serious about your health, contact Safe Computing Company (address given below). This company produces a monitor which they claim emits no electric or magnetic radiation.
