‘Li-fi 100 times faster than wi-fi’ – BBC News

Li-fi, a faster way to deliver internet access, has been tested in a real-life, working office in Tallinn, Estonia.

Sourced through from:

Talk about li-fi has been around a lot in the news lately. Provided that this new technology can truly work and is safe, this would be a HUGE advancement. I often half-joke that one of those life necessities that I can’t live without besides, water, food, shelter, clothing, and electricity is wi-fi. I know, it’s a "first world problem" to be without wi-fi. But think of this–building this technology into a simple light bulb could help connect many more efficiently–or at all–in second- and third-world countries. The ability to communicate and disseminate information would be greater than ever. Mobile is already the predominate means of getting information and communication around the world–why not help it become more readily available to be in "the grid" if you want to be on the grid? I look forward to when this technology will be mainstream that gaining internet access will be as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. This will also affect technical writing, digital marketing, and e-learning. How? Because there will be even more emphasis on mobile delivery than ever before. Think about that. Then think about how you will contribute to the future.
