Li-Fi Probably Won’t Be The New Wi-Fi For Most People

HH_LiFi Long restricted to the academic domain, Li-Fi, a light-based data delivery method is suddenly getting all sorts of attention. An Estonian startup Velmenni recently tested an commercial implementation and found it to be superior to Wi-Fi in almost every way – except as something you and I will probably ever use. Velmenni’s technology, called Jungru, uses an LED bulb and transmits… Read More
