    It looks to just be using the human body as a capacitive transfer path. Do you have specific questions?

    I think it's mostly still experimental, but maybe there are some niche applications. Google Personal Area Network or Body Area Network for more info.

    I would like to conduct a seminar on redtacton in our collegeas a part of our academic work.I want to know how can we set attributes in a redtacton device?If we use one redtacton transiever device with our mobile and give a shakehand to someone who wear a red tacton reciever device(that we don't know and we wear the device ,not meant for him) then is all our data transfered? Where and how we use the authentication and encryption methods?can u explain the communications in new domains more clearly?if touch on the advertising where and how we set the needed attributes information? Now in the market is any redtacton device is available?what is it's cost?What about its future?Why it use the old interface "PCMCIA".Do you think it as good interface nowadays?

    although it's a pretty cool thing.. and i don't want to sound like those orthodox anti-science cribbers.. but i do think i have problem with electric fields running across my body..
