other than speed advantage, there is drawback of this technology, because it is based on visible light beams, so you can’t use it in dark even if your hand comes between you will be disconnected , and light can’t pass through walls so only room in which you have this connection you can use.
and there is no chance to use it in sunlight, and it almost makes it invisible.
there are rumors that Apple is showing interest to integrate this technology in upcoming iPhone 7.
