It seems that WiFi access is never around when you need it. So what do we do?  Typically we look to see if there’s a local network that we can tap into and hope for the best.Thanks to the folks at pureLiFi, this experience could soon be a thing of the past. 

LiFi, Light Fidelity, is the younger cousin to WiFi. By using a flickering LED light (the flickering is undetectable to the naked eye,) information can be communicated via the light itself. This means that if there’s a light source by you, that could very well be used as a portal to access the internet.
