Drongouiné, a landlocked Ivorian village not far from Liberia. There, no electric pole of the Ivorian Company of Electricity nor pylon of mobile telephone network. However, one evening in April 2017, the 5000 inhabitants of this locality plunged into modernity. LED bulbs, connected to solar panels were illuminated. A television screen began broadcasting images and a computer connected to the Internet.

At the base of this little "miracle", LIFI LED technology (Light Fidelity or transmission by light). Used by Angel Frederick Balma, a young Ivorian computer and network engineer, she uses the light spectrum of LED lighting to transmit data to a computer or smartphone.

The designer tells how the click happened: "A few years ago, I found myself in a village without electricity, without internet, without a mobile network. In our era? It was unacceptable! ".
