While everyone knows about the three primary colors, in case of electronics they happen to be red, green and blue. Li-Fi technology has given the world a gift from its innovative side via these hues. We all have a pretty good idea about Wi-Fi. But Li-Fi is the sending of speedy signals using only light rays.
In other words, wireless relay through the VIBGYOR spectrum of violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red has been made a possibility. Although it has yet to achieve the potency to penetrate thick walls and solid barriers, the quickness potential it holds makes that hurdle a minor irritant.
Scientists in the United Kingdom have employed a micro LED light bulb to facilitate extremely rapid delivery of data. The rate of relay happens to be 10 Gbps which is a miracle in the annals of technology. The deconstruction of white light into red, green and blue allows the production of 3.5 Gbps per primary color.
This is the most revolutionary development since electricity. Essentially, it means that the glowing lights spread throughout the globe could be connected one fine day in the same manner as the Internet’s hypertexts. This breakthrough has already had many repercussions. NASA is working on its own laser experiments related to this invention. And so for that matter are the Chinese.
