Data Transfer Via Bones

Researchers at Rice University in Houston, Texas are developing a system for transmitting data via the bones of the human body. Currently, they are focusing on medical applications, such as using bones to transmit orders to an implant inside the body to release drugs. Previously, efforts to develop a “Personal Area Network (PAN)” have focused on using the skin as a medium, and in fact, Microsoft has a patent on technology for transferring data and power using the human body.
