SWIM: Making Sound Waves Visible

Step 1: Imprint invisible sound and radio waves onto your retina: Augmented reality with perfect alignment

Instructables | February 16, 2016

With the S.W.I.M. (Sequential Wave Imprinting Machine) you can see otherwise invisible sound waves and radio waves, imprinted onto your retina, onto photographic media, or eyeglass/camera.
This is due to something I call Phenomenological or Phenomenal Augmented Reality, i.e. the AR (Augmented Reality) of physical phenomena.
A unique feature of Phenomenal Augmented Reality is that the alignment (registration) between the direct view and the overlaid information is near-perfect, because the alignment happens naturally, in the feedback loop of the process. In this sense SWIM is a Natural User Interface.
