RedTacton. Human Area Networks get a name and a face. And a pretty orange colour too!
RedTacton is a new Human Area Networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high speed network transmission path. – RedTacton uses the minute electric field emitted on the surface of the human body. Technically, it is completely distinct from wireless and infrared…Touching, gripping, sitting, walking, stepping and other human movements can be the triggers for unlocking or locking, starting or stopping equipment, or obtaining data…RedTacton works through shoes and clothing as well.
