A 'passive WIFI' developed by a group of researchers from University of Washington, saving more energy than current devices (and therefore suitable for our phone batteries). Much is at stake, considering that more and more connected objects are linked together and to their owners via wifi network.
The researcher's breakthrough, made public on Tuesday, pushes the energy efficiency of WiFi to the limit, reducing the energy expense by 10,000 times.
Passive Wi-Fi'is designed to consume virtually no energy while maintaining transfer speeds of up to 11 megabits per second. That's 11 times faster than Bluetooth, even while remaining 1,000 times more energy efficient than Bluetooth Low Energy.
The US MIT Technology Review classified it already among the the '10 best technological breakthroughs in 2016'.
