Hello Li-Fi - 100 times faster than wi-fi

Better Than Wi-Fi, Li-Fi Is 100 Times Faster

A new wireless technology that you may have not heard about, Li-Fi, has finally been tested in a real world setting and proving 100 times faster than Wi-Fi—but don't say goodbye to Wi-Fi just yet.

Li-Fi works through Visible Light Communication, Science Alert reports, using visible light from 400 to 800 terahertz to carry data at high speeds. Science Alert described it as an "incredibly advanced form of Morse code," using an LED (Light Emitting Diode) which flicks on and off to transmit data in binary code. Li-Fi was created in 2011 by Harald Haas of the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. At the time he showed how the flickering light of one LED could carry more data than a cellular tower.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
