This is a very interesting approach for data transferring, but this only speeds up so much of your internet connection. The data sent from your phone to the access points via light will be incredible, but what about from those access points to servers and back? Fiber optics would only help a portion of this. What do you guys think?

superMHL 8K 120fps, USB Type-C, 40W, more bandwidth The MHL Consortium (http://www.mhlconsortium.org) has outdone itself with their latest technology specification, now perhaps setting the spec at a very future proof level (shall we say at least until 2020?), supporting up to 8K at 120fps, with up to 40W for power charge, delivering higher resolution, faster frame rates, support for the upcoming USB Type-C (dual side reversible) connector for up to 8K 60fps output from a phone (wow wow!). For the first time, MHL also introduces a new superMHL connector for 8K TVs (as in the first 8K TV from Samsung shown at CES). The SuperMHL spec is for mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray players, Audio/video recorders, HDMI sticks and other source devices to TVs and monitors, as SuperMHL should be included in most future FHD/4K/8K TVs, PC Monitors, MHL has shipped in over 750 Million devices thus far. The new SuperMHL spec is also offering wider color gamut, deeper colors (to reduce color banding), high dynamic range (HDR) supported through signaling and through higher bandwidth.

Dropping Feathers vs. a Bowling Ball in a Vacuum
Gravity in the World’s Biggest Vacuum Chamber. Physicist Brian Cox visits NASA’s Space Power Facility in Ohio to see what happens when a bowling ball and a feather are dropped together under the conditions of outer space.

As an aside, his book 'The Quantum Universe (And Why Anything That Can Happen, Does)' is a great read and worth checking out: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/0306819643/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
