Li-Fi - a secure analogue of Wi-Fi.

✔✔✔rating

Most studies have concluded that Wi-Fi is generally safe, but some people are still worried about the fact that we bathe in the rays of electromagnetic radiation around the clock.





In order to completely protect against negative influence, the researchers developed Li-Fi or Light Fidelity, where the invisible flicker of the light source transmits data at a very high speed to 224 gigabits per second. Problems with interference also do not arise, since the connection operates at radio frequency, but can not pass through the walls.

Oledcomm, a French company that deals with commercial equipment with LiFi, has already installed it in hospitals and other places where people are worried about the harmful effects of WiFi, and recently introduced a table lamp designed by Pierre Garner of Eliumstudio.





The lamp was brought to North America, to an exhibition of CES, taking place in Las Vegas and has already won two awards.


As the developer writes:


"LiFi provides data transmission, imperceptibly modulating the light emitted by the LED lamp. The result is the transfer of data at ultrafast speed, reliable and free of harmful electromagnetic emissions. Light signals are received and converted into data using a Li-Fi key connected to the mobile device. "





The LEDs in the lamp are adjustable to transfer the color temperature from warm to daylight. There is also its own built-in security system.


"MyLiFi® is next-generation lighting that goes beyond the visible spectrum, providing an easy and secure connection to the Internet. We wanted to materialize an intangible "smart" light. To achieve this, we created a simple, clean object that makes technology disappear in favor of comfort and ease of use. "


In the video, the company claims that LiFi operates "without radiation"; However, you can be a bit pedantic and point out that light is just another frequency of electromagnetic radiation, which people, as it turned out, have learned to see.




There are also some people with electro-hypersensitivity who claim that they are affected by the flickering of LED lamps.But if you are worried about WiFi harm and are ready to shell out $ 1650 for a lamp (hopefully with a couple of keys) this option is quite possible for you.

Of course, none of our hardware has a LiFi receiver, so all necessary devices will require keys, which is also very unpleasant. But, as the company says, one key can be connected to "all devices, including computers, tablets and smartphones, connected instantly to the network".

It's a pity that it is not built into our phones and devices, because the use of light is a bright idea
