Augmented Reality has the potential to expand our interaction with our surrounding environment. A potential solution to improve this interactability is Visible Light Communication through blinking Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Data is encoded and then transmitted by blinking the LED, a smart-phone camera is then pointed at the LED to decode the...
