[CEATEC 2009] ALPS has created a system that uses the human body electric conductivity to transmit fair amounts of data (streaming music…). It was demonstrated last year, but now major carriers like DoCoMo are investing in it. Basically, if you and I were both equipped with a compatible handset, we could exchange our business cards or other information simply by shaking hands. It could work for Kiosks and subway tickets as well. It gets better, devices like headsets can also benefit from this technology. Can we finally dump Bluetooth for that purpose?
