Ericsson thinks that USB cables are for losers, uses your body instead

Transfering data between two devices by simply holding on to both of them may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but the folks at Ericsson have actually found a way of turning that concept into reality...

You are obviously some child from yesterday... My son, Ericsson was successful and innovative company before partnership with Sony in MC...
In fact that screw them up imo.
Not to mention that Ericsson has many other businesses other than making phones. Just look at ST-Ericsson and Ericsson Nikola Tesla...

Could be, but has to been proven, faster, more energy efficient, and most of all safe! I don't want anything like that going through my body untested!

I agree completely I think it would be great but also you need other tech to adot it also I remember IR transfers it was great between my phone and my wifes but I didn't know anyone else that had it

I certainly wouldn't want any tech going through my body,im quite happy to have everything separate in cable form or phone or device form than tech implants or a data transfer method like ericsson suggests here.........did someone say resistance is futile?!

Negativity aside ppl, keep it in mind that a technology like this might not work like that in the future, someone might find a good use of it, instead of transferring data, some medical techies, might use it maybe to diagnose you buy letting you touch some machine and find out what is wrong with your body for instead, sometimes we look at something and think it might be useless, techs like these are needed so ppl can find a proper use for it. Just saying.
