Right now, as you read this, you are cruising through a mind-numbingly complex pathway of wires and cables that shoots bits of data from point-to-point around the globe. And Peer 1’s Map of the Internet lets you see what it looks like…as a neon disco map.
Available for Android and iOS, tablets and phones alike, Peer 1’s Map of the Internet shows all the points and nodes of the Internet in one of two ways. First, you can look at all those coloured dots mapped out on a standard globe. Or, you can look at the whole thing in a big jellyfish-lookin’ hierarchical map. And in addition to just swiping around and gawking, you can tap different nodes for information or even perform a traceroute from your own network to get a bearing on where you are.
The Map of the Internet is a fantastic and beautiful few minutes of fun, and it’s free so you’ve got nothing to lose. So go grab a copy (Google Play, App Store) for your device and take a deep dive. [DVICE]
