projects / synapsis
Synapsis is an application that partially visualizes network traffic. It is the uppermost layer for Carnivore, a network surveillance tool. Carnivore is an application that listens to all data traffic in a network (email, web surfing, etc.). Data travels on the Internet between two computers in packets. The Synapsis client visualizes the actual packets flowing on the network and partially reveals the network topology, at the same time that utlizies that input to generate a unique sound ambience.
