Sniff Jazzbox captures the WLAN’s 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!
