Ed Konowal from the Lee County School District, explains how Internet usage is typically measured in megabits per second (MB/s) and displayed as a graph on a monitor or smartphone. This project translates the same data to a real-world analog steam-pressure gauge from the early 20th century (1914). Data collected via an internet router that serves the Vancouver Convention Centre are converted to a 0-200 scale to match the increments on the pressure gauge and sent to a microcontroller connected to a servo that moves the pressure-gauge needle.

The Art Gallery artist, a frequent member of the SIGGRAPH GraphicsNet team that sets up and manages digital infrastructure for the annual SIGGRAPH conference, invented the Internet Steam Gauge to monitor network traffic in the 90-school, 80,000-student Lee County School District in southwest Florida.

SIGGRAPH 2014 took place 10-14 August 2014 at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, BC.
