Connected Me: A Threat to Bluetooth and USB

Transferring files through USB with those wires that easily gets tangled is truly a hassle. Even transferring through Bluetooth becomes a problem because of pairing. To solve this, Ericsson is currently on development with a new technology: file transfer by simple human touch.

The system is called Connected Me and is using the human body as a vehicle to transfer files. Using our body's natural electricity, the data is then captured by a machine. And since our body is mostly made up of water, which is the best conductor, our bodies are perfect for this process.

When this technology becomes available, it will become a threat to the existence of USB drives and Bluetooth transfer technology.

So, what do you think?
