When we wirelessly connect a laptop to a home router, we do so over radio waves. We were first introduced to wireless data transmission using light back in 2014, and now France's Oledcomm has launched the first Android tablet with integrated Li-Fi.
Though most of make use of radio waves to wirelessly transfer data to and from our work mobile devices and computers, there is another way. Signify has just launched a new lighting range called Trulifi that leverages light waves to send and receive wireless data throughout the workplace.
Mexican company Sisoft, working with researchers from the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico (ITAM), has developed a wireless Li-Fi technology that transmits data in visible light emitted from LED lamps, while lighting the room at the same time.
