The Midlothian Lecture — Li-Fi
Mon October 5, 2015 @ 19:00 – 21:00| Free
What if every light bulb in the world could also transmit data? Harald Haas demonstrates a device that can do exactly that. By flickering the light from a single LED, a change too quick for the human eye to detect, he can transmit far more data than a cellular tower — and do it in a way that’s more efficient, secure and widespread.
TIME Magazine featured his work as one of the “50 Best Inventions in 2011″ in their 28 November 2011 issue.
This lecture is for adults, it’s free and you can reserve your place below. You can come on the night without booking; it’s just nice for us to know how many people to plan for!
Lasswade Centre has wheelchair access.
“As well as revolutionising internet reception, it would put an end to the potentially harmful electromagnetic pollution emitted by wireless internet routers and has raised the prospect of ubiquitous wireless access, transmitted through streetlights.” — Herald Scotland
