HUZZAH!

This will give the porn industry so many more possibilities. Everything else stays the same.

Lol

Well instead of frying a chicken in the wifi microwaves you can have now epeleptic seisures on lifi.

I haven't read up on this at all, just going by the short description in the OP...

How does transmitting with visible light differ from transmitting with invisible light (radiowaves) in terms of speed and performance? Why is there any difference at all?

Hell! I'm already paying $200 US for internet (75mbs), cable TV and phone via Time-Warner Roadrunner. I could just imagine how much this will cost.

Lights already flicker at 50/60hz depending on where you live. A flicker at 2ghz or more is going to be impossible to detect and far less likely to cause harm or seizures. Imagine a household where fibreoptic cable runs between your household ceiling lamps distributing li-fi throughout the house at unprecedented speeds? It seems just after technology ditched irDA ports on all our laptops and phones there's a call to have them reinstated.

So this is just like normal fibre optics (which are MUCH faster) only instead its open to the room rather than a closed circuit?


No, not at all. Optical transmission systems use wavelengths past the infra-red end of the spectrum (1550nm being a common wavelength used)

Thats not really that impressive to be honest, what happens if theres a few transmitters in the room?


Use a different frequency.

And for greater secuirity yes, but if anyone can see that beacon transmitter through a window im sure the network could be compromised - obviously thats a lot of hassle and a room with no windows would be 100% safe, just saying that its far from infallible.


And the same can be said of WiFi, except that can leak out a room without windows...

Uses for this tech would be in public area's and part of a smart lighting solution as well. Or perhaps in places where WiFi frequencies are not desired (aircraft, for example)

can barely afford my 50mbps net speed lol. I bet this would be over 1ooo a month. no thanks.


This would just be for LAN's - it has no practical use in any WAN so it won't affect general speeds available and it will actually just bottleneck to whatever speed your ISP gives you.

There is far more room in the visible spectrum, allowing greater bandwidth.

Sod all over and above what you already pay for a Wireless router, I'd imagine. You're confusing this with what you get from your ISP. This technology is naff all use in a WAN.
