Motor Mouth: Lasers will light up the automotive universe

Well, these are special lights. In fact, they’re not really lights — as we know them, at least — but lasers.

Yes, you’re reading that right; SLD says its lasers can double as both radar and Wi-Fi — actually, in this case, it’s called Li-Fi.
