LiFi Solar leading to smart skins and more light based communication

http://www.rfwireless-world.com/Terminology/What-is-Solar-LiFi.html

The basic idea is that the solar panel will act as a Lifi receiver. But I want to suggest that almost everthing will soon have a beautiful colorful solar film skin, associated rechargeable solid state power cell and integrated Lifi. At some point even more functionality like touch screen functionality may also coexist in some of the same surfaces. I just saw an article for solar cell tech from MIT that could hit 60% conversion efficiency. So cars, phones, IOT…

Very happy about Netherlands Professor Harol Haas who seems to have brought us LiFi and LiFi Solar. A very forward thinker. If almost everything boils down to light, why not communicate with it.
