Bones could allow data swaps via handshake

Bones could allow data swaps via handshake

The researchers suggest applications such as a vibrator in a wrist receiver/transmitter that could tell an implant placed near a bone to release a drug dose, with the implant then sending back data from its sensors. Similarly, tooth clacks or finger clicks could be interpreted by a receiver to activate, say, functions in a phone.

For Liebschner, the great benefit is security. "All data transfer is contained inside the human body, and it can only be retrieved through direct physical contact," he says. People could even swap information between devices via a firm handshake, Zhong suggests.

If you've ever seen Man of the Year, or just the begining of it, this is really funny... hehehe. Next we'll have subvocalization throat microphones and implanted cell phones, where you dial by clicking your teeth in morse code. Hehehe.
