Disney Research team have invented the ultimate signal relay process. It allows for the human body to transmit and receive exclusive voice messages via a voice activated microphone and touch system.
Its Japanese name is Ishin-Den-Shin. The only English equivalent is Electronic Whispers. Basically, Disney Research Studios have invented a method of sending voice messages from one person to another via touch. All it requires is a microphone in the hands of the sender. And the receiver has to be touched on the ear or elsewhere and he or she will hear the message.
But, and here is the catch, the message can be sent and heard only by the sender and receiver. No third party can get a whiff of what is spoken and listened to between the two. This is truly a melding of the human body and high technology.
This is how this interesting stratagem works. You say something into a microphone which is attached to a computer sound card. The audio message is transformed into a looped recording which is then converted into a high-voltage, low-current signal. This goes straight to the edges of the microphone. Then a static charge gets built around the sender’s body.
With a single touch he or she can send the message to anyone else in close proximity. The message is a finger touch away. Disney Studios may employ this bio-technology in kids’ playthings in the future. Meanwhile, Sony and Microsoft both already have similar body-machine interactive inventions to their credit. Such new stuff is magic in the making and proves that the times to come are exciting and exhilarating indeed.
