Tech: Li-Fi is the New Wi-Fi

Li-Fi, or light fidelity technology being developed at the University of Oxford, is a potential alternative to Wi-Fi because it uses visible light spectrum to transmit data. The technology is still a long way from commercial use, but researchers believe that this format will be able to offer speeds far greater than current contemporary Wi-Fi technology. One of the pioneers of the technology clams that in the future, every LED lightbulb could potentially be used as a faster alternative to Wi-fi. “In the future we will not only have 14 billion light bulbs, we may have 14 billion Li-Fi’s deployed worldwide for a cleaner, greener and even a brighter future.”
