Computerworld: That theory about LED lightbulbs transmitting data? It’s true. Li-Fi is here.

Yes, multiple tests have shown that LED lighting fixtures can transmit wireless data at very competitive high speeds. A commercial product started shipping several months ago.

What if every light bulb in the world could also transmit data?

In July 2011, Harald Haas, a professor of engineering at Edinburgh University,  poised that rhetorical question to a TED Global audience.

Li-Fi is here. pureLiFi shipped its first fully wireless optical networking systems in the fourth quarter of 2014. The product, Li-Flame, turns standard LED fixtures into wireless Internet access points. Just like the theory said it would.
