NTT RedTacton Human Area Network

NTT announces Human Area Networking technology Research Project 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.

Using a novel electro-optic sensor, NTT has already developed a small PCMCIA card-sized prototype RedTacton transceiver. Instead of relying on electromagnetic waves or light waves to carry data, RedTacton uses weak electric fields on the surface of the body as a transmission medium.

Interesting stuff. NTT has setup a whole site for RedTacton with lots of diagrams and content. More details also in this press-release. First seen on Akihabara News.
