THE WORLD'S first luminaire which can deliver the internet via visible light is set to be unveiled at LuxLive 2017 in London in November, its developers have announced.
The move represents the debut of the highly-innovative Light Fidelity, or Li-Fi, technology in the lighting industry.
The new luminaire – developed by Scottish start-up pureLiFi and French light fitting manufacturer Lucibel – places all the necessary Li-Fi components in a black ring that lies flat against the ceiling and is designed to circle an LED light. It is able to support between eight to 16 users at once, and deliver data at rates of 45 megabits per second.
- See the Ores Li-Fi fitting for yourself in the Li-Fi Experience zone at LuxLive 2017. LuxLive 2017 takes place at ExCeL London on Wednesday 15 November and Thursday 16 November. Entry is free if you pre-register HERE.
