Exchange data with a handshake:  NTT and NTT DoCoMo have announced a technology for sending data at 10 mbps through a person's body, clothes, door knobs, switches, desks and chairs. "A device attached to a PDA can send and receive weak electrical signals through people, with human bodies as communications circuits, the paper said, citing sources close to the companies.  Apparel and handbags have their own conductivity, allowing an electrical connection to a PDA that can remain in one's pocket, the paper said. In this way, people can exchange e-mail addresses, names and phone numbers while shaking hands, with the data automatically written into both their PDAs, the paper said.  .. It could pave the way to one day being able to pass through railway ticket gates or entering secure buildings with a simple touch.  It could also get a computer to start up with the proper settings as soon as the user sat down, the paper said.
