Li-Fi might just be the next one. It is like Wi-Fi, but much, MUCH, faster.
Having just been trialled for the first time in real life, Li-Fi was found to live up to scientists’ claims that it operates 100-times faster than Wi-Fi technologies.
And if you picture such genius inventions to have been born of a ‘light-bulb moment’, well this one most certainly was.
Li-Fi is a wireless technology that transmits high-speed data using visible light communication (VLC).
It means, within the next five years, you could be accessing the Internet using the light-bulbs in your home. This would reportedly be safer as well, protecting the data being sent, because light cannot pass through walls.
