so flick the light switch and no internetz?

wonder if a strobe light could discombobulate it lol

wouldnt flicking the lights on and off kill the electrodes in the bulbs? they would have to use induction or plasma bulbs which would be very expensive.
They use LED's.

Normal bulbs already switch on/off 50 times per second due to AC current. You just can't see it, 50Hz is to fast for the human eye.

However normal bulbs wouldn't work. The electrode takes tome to cool. Using normal bulbs would resulting in killer latency and a download speed of 1kB/hour, or less .

It would have to be LEDs and I don't think they can even do it with LED's.

There is a strike time involved from the moment the LED recieves power to the moment that it actually emits light. I don't see them getting around that. LEDs are the most viable because fluoro's have an even longer strike time not to mention they need to get to temperature before they even reach peak brightness and I would have to assume the light needs to be at a certain level for the system to operate properly, plus the refresh of the bulbs, etc. There are just too many variables to overcome for this to be a viable system with actual uses.

Not to mention the cost of retro-fitting an entire floor with LED lights. We do just that at the company I work for and it is definately NOT cheap.

You think they haven't already tested it? Did you read the article at all? Oh man, you've really outsmarted all the scientists that have been working on this for years that definitely haven't made numerous prototypes for proof-of-concept and commercial examples. Oh wait...

So it's celing tile lights then? Not celing tiles? Misleading title is misleading.

So what's wrong with my original argument?

They will never (I say never, really mean a very long time though) reach data transfer speeds capable of making this system cost effective. One major contributing factor being the strike time involved with every single type of lighting in general use today. It's a crapload of overhead for transfer speeds that are meh. It would only become every so slightly viable if it were installed in a new construction from the ground up, even then, I bet the benefit of a hard-wired connection far outweighs what you get with this system.

I can wire up an LED light that will replace a 1000W HPS bulb. It's going to be around 4'x4' though and the cost will be phenomenal. That doesn't mean it's cost effective or that there is even a market for it (there is a market but it's not cost effective). (not the best example but one I can think of off the top of my head)
