In the present day with the advance technology, there are many infrastructures that can be innovated. Recently, one of the everyday technology like ‘Light’ has been moved beyond the old way of usability.

Philips Lighting was one of the first movers in introducing the digital lighting technology to the world.

“Philips’ vision is to use its solutions and innovations to improve people’s lives.”
“Innovation in lighting enables solutions that stretch beyond high-quality and energy-efficient illumination”

The Edge in Amsterdam is the project the aim to use smart light to reinforce the working environment economically and physically.

LiFi is a technology for wireless communication between devices using light to transmit data.

Another interesting thing about light is that now it can be use for the Navigation system by using its frequency emission. This is something that can improve indoor activities.

Imagine how these technologies could be implement in other industries in order to improve services, economy or even for disable people could take the advantage out of this technology.

It seems like the basic infrastructure like ‘light’ will create a better living and provoke us to think more about the possibility in any other infrastructures in our society. As we are looking at the innovation to make a better and smarter society, it is important to know who will be effected by the technology we offered and not forget to include everyone in the society. Is this the time that we should look at present, reflect and think ahead?
