Your next hotspot could be a light bulb. The Wysips Connect smartphone sensor reads data transmitted from regular LED lights while using the same rays to charge itself. In the near future, building owners will install this new LiFi technology into your overhead fixtures and use it to transmit location data based on your position. Imagine using your smartphone to get step-by-step directions to the right booth in a giant convention center or holding your handset under a light at the supermarket to get more information about a product. Wysips Connect could even enable a network connection that’s more secure than Wi-Fi because hackers can’t intercept the signal unless they’re standing under the same light.
