    “At the CES tradeshow in Las Vegas, Sunpartner Technologies will introduce, along with its partner Oledcomm, a pioneer in the LiFi market, the first mobile device equipped with Wysips┬« Connect: this smartphone can receive and transmit data by light (music, video, photos, etc.) while generating its own electricity.”

    So yes, the phone can receive and transmit data, although I’d guess the data rate from the phone to the router would be lower.

    Mildly interesting for some cases, though the required element size is very critical whether it can be an accessory, case, or must be part of the original device design. Transmission could be either by producing photons or modulation of absorbed (thus reflected) photons. Worth it just so you can say “move over (to another light), you’re hogging my bandwidth”.

    Sounds like they were doing a lot of overselling. They ARE French.

    On Website: Up 1Gbps
    In Video: Up to 10MB/s, but probably language mistake, and he meant 10Mbps.

    The phone manufacturer says currently 24 Kbps, up to 1 Mbps, but that’s for the phone only.
    With Oledcomm LiFi receiver connected to a laptop, they can reach up to 10Mbps.
