Most people use memory cards, USB flash sticks, Bluetooth or even CDs for transferring data from one PC to another. Communications provider KDDI is thinking outside the box, and inside the human body, creating a brilliant piece of technology called Intra-Body Communication.
Using the human body, they've discovered that high-volume data like video and music can be transferred, at a frequency of less than 40MHz.
The video glasses seen in the photo above are fitted with copper coils that deliberately touch the wearer's forehead, and when the metal heart is touched at the same time, video is transmitted from the heart to the glasses, as well as to an external PC monitor.
According to this random Japanese blog we stumbled across recently, KDDI hopes one day this technology will allow for video downloads to mobile phones to be made by humans simply touching a movie poster whilst out and about. Obviously this is just a concept at the moment, but if you're keen on seeing a slice of the possible future, head on over to Tokyo and visit KDDI's Designing Studio to view this amazing display.
