Japanese researchers want to play ball with data.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo and at the National Institute of Informatics enabled PDAs to exchange data by flicking it into the direction of the receiving PDA.
Small movements mean the data is aimed at close-by receivers, strong movements mean a far toss. The system works with a light emitted from the PDAs that is registered by a camera that calculates the destination for the data exchange.
