What does your wlan sound like?

Came across this really interesting DS Homebrew project today called sniff jazzbox. It basically converts the data being broadcast from all those wifi access points all around you, and converts them into music. It's a pretty cool concept, but I find the results a bit of a let down. Rather than creating any kind of sonic soundscape, i simply interprets the data into piano notes. I totally love the concept though, and would love someone to take it further. Imagine a cross between this and Korg's DS10, where the data would be interpreted to adjust parameters of the sounds being generated.. I'm sure that could produce some interesting results.

and also check out this page of other DS Homebrew audio projects. Some excellent stuff there, especially GlitchDS.
