This is unreal:
Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) is pursuing research and development of an innovative Human Area Networking technology called RedTacton that safely turns the surface of the human body into a data transmission path at speeds up to 10 Mbps between any two points on the body.
Let’s see the RIAA monitor file swapping once this hits the mainstream!
For example, two people equipped with RedTacton devices could exchange data just by shaking hands. A wide range of natural human actions — grasping, sitting down, walking, or standing in a particular place — can be used to trigger RedTacton to start a networked process.
