It's a high five that doesn't involve actually contact, normally over a long distance where a real high-five isn't possible.

Mix of "wireless" and "high-five", hence "wi-five", (wireless high-five)

Eric (in response): You need to chill with that nano shit, son

A long-distance high-five, often referred to as an "air-five". Commonly used when a friend is too far away to reach and slap some skin, such as in a crowded party, on the dance floor, car-to-car, or in class.
Hey man, lay it on me... *holds up hand for high-five*. Oh you're sick? Well just Wi-Five me then.
