LiFi: Transmit Music Using Light





Introduction: LiFi: Transmit Music Using Light

In this instructable I will show you how to convert music to varying light intensity and then transmit it wireless using an LED and a solar cell whose output it seen by a speaker.

Step 1: Demonstration

Step 2: Parts Required

  • 9V Battery
  • Alligator wires
  • Leds (here I use an emergency led light)
  • Solar cell (Preferably above 2V)
  • 3.5mm audio jack to be connected to mobile
  • Speaker

Step 3: Transmitter & Receiver

Connect the 9v battery in series with the audio jack then connect it to the led.

The tip of the speaker jack is connected to positive of the solar cell and negative is connected to the body.

    Wont the 9 volt end up frying your phones sound card.

    can i use LDR instead of solar cell?

    Yep, but you should connect a battery in series with it.

    How many volts should the battery be?

    Hey, just had a question. How do I connect everything, the pictures are a little blurry and can't figure it out.


    Thanks for the feedback! I will be uploading a circuit diagram soon.

    could you upload a circuit diagramm soon?

    Could you please post the diagram soon. I have a school project that's due soon and I really wanted to use this as a demonstration. I'd greatly appreciate it.
