The latest advancement in Facebook has been revealed. In a Q&A session yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg revealed the company’s plans to introduce lasers and drones into the system. This, he says, will connect more users to the internet over long distances. You’re not going to see the laser beams, but definitely they will be there. This, he claims, is just one of the connectivity projects in development.
“As part of our Internet.org efforts, we’re working on ways to use drones and satellites to connect the billion people who don’t live in range of existing wireless networks.
Our Connectivity Lab is developing a laser communications system that can beam data from the sky into communities. This will dramatically increase the speed of sending data over long distances.
Normally you wouldn’t be able to see the actual beams, but for this demonstration we made them visible. This is just one connectivity project we’re working on, but I was excited to share this with you.”
