Turn your body into a human router

The 'body area network' makes its debut

Body Area Network

Great, just what the world needs: Another networking acronym. We finally figured out LAN and WAN, and now we have BAN--for "body area network."

South Korea's Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, or ETRI, is developing a technology that could turn your body into a human router with a control strapped to your wrist. "For example, if you have a document file to print in a wrist information device, you just wear the device and touch a printer with the hand, then you would get the printed paper," Aving.Net reports.

We think we'll stick with Kinko's for now.
