Beam Wi-Fi to your devices through a lamp

MyLiFi is a desk lamp currently in its funding phase on Indiegogo.

The device providing white dynamic lighting, fast 23 Mb/s radio waves and free LiFi connectivity. 

MyLiFi has already won two CES awards innovation under the categories "tech for a better world" and "Smart Cities".  

The device is a high quality LED light, with dimming and adjustable white colour temperature. 

It is fully controlled via an app for IOS, Android or web.

LiFi technology for “Light Fidelity” is a new method to connect mobile devices and other connected devices using LED lights.

Oledcomm used a Li-Fi-enabled lightbulb to transmit data at speeds as fast as 23 megabits per second (Mbps).

Laboratory tests have shown theoretical speeds of 224 Gigabits per second (Gbps), meaning a high-definition film could be downloaded within seconds.

With MyLiFi, users can set up the rules and teach their children a healthy relationship with the Internet. 

It is good sometimes to switch off and enjoy some time together away from any distraction. 

Thanks to the silver: button and the web panel control, users can simply customise the connection planning. 

This means parents can manage connection hours and access.
