pureLiFi is a company purely focussed on Li-Fi technology. The technology was originally developed by the D-Light project at the University of Edinburgh and has been exclusively licensed to pureLiFi. This technology allows standard LED light bulbs to be turned into high-speed wireless communications devices, a bit like a Wi-Fi, hence the name Li-Fi which is often used. It allows users to transmit data via visible light, made possible by the fast switching capabilities of LEDs.
