So what if i told u you, you could get internet access via your light bulb. Imagine if every light bulb in the world could transmit data?
This is no sci-fi question… or statement. It’s “Li-Fi” and it could bring you and everyone else free high speed internet.
Sir Alexander Graham Bell among his several other innovations created something called the Photophone, its like a wireless telephone that enabled sounds (including speech) to be transmitted through light. Its amazing to say the least. But whats more amazing is that its being further developed now.
This technology better known as ‘Li-Fi’, which stands for bi-directional, networked wireless communications using visible light, as opposed to traditional radio frequencies. This light-centric wireless communications technology has been in development by Professor Harald Haas at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland he calls it PureLiFi (previously PureVLC).
With Li-Fi, you can connect to the internet simply by being within range of a LED beam. With this and of course the correct devices like the Rooah! Peacock Tablet with built-in Internet we could actually provide Free Internet anywhere there is light.
Please check out and support the #FreeTheWeb campaign on indiegogo.com and help bring Internet access to over 70% of people around the world. Imagine the solutions and innovations that will come out of adding more minds online. By doing this we will allow for more creativity, more solutions, more voices, and enhance education that will lead to more innovations like Pure LiFi and possibly even make more of Sir Alexander Graham Bell and Nikola Tesla awesome ideas into reality.
