New technology uses human body for broadband networking

"By sending data over the surface of the skin, it may soon be possible to trade music files by dancing cheek to cheek, or to swap phone numbers by kissing"

This sounds incredibly far-out, but, it also sounds like it's technically feasible. Check out the last paragraph too:

An intriguing possibility is that the technology will be used as a sort of secondary nervous system to link large numbers of tiny implanted components placed beneath the skin to create powerful onboard -- or in-body -- computers.

The possible ramifications of this are really interesting too - like having a direct satcom-human link, delivering broadband access direct to the brain! There's a severe negative aspect of this too - would YOU want to be constantly spammed, or subjected to ads via a "live content" connection? Yech!
