Use your body as a network connection

Crypto-geeks have been heard in the past muttering about "handshake protocol," but this is ridiculous and wonderful:
Japanese company Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) has developed technology that uses the human body as a high-speed network. What's more, it also forms a communications link between people and electronic devices.

This is the first viable Human Area Network (HAN) device, enabling fast data transfer between devices using the human body as a conduit.

The transceivers - called RedTacton - uses the surface of the human body as a safe, high speed network transmission path.
