High Speed Internet from the Ceiling Lamp
In the future, people will be able to surf the web using light – quickly, inexpensively, and entirely without radio communication – thanks to a technology Fraunhofer scientists have been researching for years: visible light communication (VLC). This makes commercially available LEDs a viable alternative to conventional wireless network access in situations where radio communication is not desired, or to give people relief from electromagnetic rays and electric smog.
