MessageToEagle.com - We benefit from the vast amount of information that can be found on the Internet. Downloading content from internet is a common activity for all internet users but - unfortunately, they can take excessive time.
Now, help is on its way!
A unique and very sophisticated device - that uses light to control light - has been invented by a group of scientists and engineers at the University of Minnesota.



The device, with a high-speed, microscale mechanical switch of light, could cut the cost of internet downloads by making download speeds faster than ever.
“This device is similar to electromechanical relays but operates completely with light,” said Mo Li, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering in the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering.
The brilliant idea will contribute to significant advances in computation and signal processing using light instead of electrical current with higher performance and lower power consumption.
