How you could soon be surfing the web via lights

A inventor from Germany has claimed a major breakthrough in revolutionising how we access the internet.

Harald Haas is the man behind LIFI – a technology which allows internet data to be sent and received via LED lights.

His company, Pure LIFIhas recently released a USB dongle device that enables laptops and tablets to be connected to the burgeoning technology.

“I think it’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when,” Haas told Euronews. “LIFI is a necessity and it will come.

“This is dongle is a real breakthrough that allows us to engage larger scale projects. The pilots we have equipping a number of office environments but now we can equip a full floor of a hotel or an airport.”

How does it work?

Signals are sent via the light stream – at frequencies the human eye cannot detect – to sensors on your device and vice-versa.

But, how does the internet get into the light source?

Haas says there are two solutions and both involve sending data signals down the same cable as the light’s power source.
