#153: “Sending video over light waves”

*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi

<GERMATOID> Some CRAZY fools have MANAGED to transmit DATA at ludicrous SPEED across nothing more than VISIBLE light!

"One of the technology's key benefits is the amount of data that can be transmitted over short distances: The Merrill Lynch link transmitted data at a rate of 1 Gbps, nearly 1,000 times faster than a typical broadband connection. The lack of bureaucracy is another plus -- there are no spectrum licenses to buy. There are also no cables to lay, making installation cheap and simple relative to the potential connection speeds."

<GERMATOID> Not only is it a COOL technology, BUT it has a WICKED name... MEGAMANTIS!
