New technology uses human body for broadband networking
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!
