Adafruit 2241

BBC News – ‘Li-fi’ via LED light bulb data speed breakthrough.

The researchers used a micro-LED light bulb to transmit 3.5Gbit/s via each of the three primary colours – red, green, blue – that make up white light.
This means over 10Gbit/s is possible.
Li-fi is an emerging technology that could see specialised LED lights bulbs providing low-cost wireless internet connectivity almost everywhere.
