Project Blinkem - Optical channel communication for Mixed Reality Systems

Project Blinkem is a novel approach to visible light communication, which aims to create a low-cost, scalable, and secure framework using existing technologies. The project proposes encoding data into Infrared LEDs, which can visually communicate with high-resolution image sensors on HMDs as well as a high-speed optical module. By leveraging the security benefits of visible light communication, Project Blinkem offers an inherently more secure method of communication, which can be valuable for a range of applications, including virtual reality environments and the internet of things. If successfully implemented, this approach could have a significant impact on the way we communicate and transfer data in the future.
