As the number of wearables being worn increases, so do the chances that the human body can be used alongside these devices to fuel data production and data transferal.
Intel demoed a long term research project where the human body can be used to transfer data from one device to another by using the skin to transfer a current from a wearable into a laptop.
This effectively puts the human body in the place of a USB stick.
Copper elements in a wearable make contact with the skin, so when a person’s fingers are placed on copper contacts on a laptop, data can be transferred.
The data cannot be stored in the body, but just uses it as a means of data transfer.
