What you touch is yours

The project proposes a new and innovative way to establish secure, bidirectional wireless channels between objects or individuals in the future internet of things, based on a bootstrapping scheme using the electrical conductivity of human skin. This will open the path to new and intuitive ways of interaction for electronic transactions.

By simply touching an ego-compliant object with any part of your body, you initiate a wireless pairing between the said object and eGo using the Intra-Body communication technology. eGo is a highly secure device you wear that can be produced in any form factor (e.g watch, belt, jewel,...) All it needs is to be in close proximity to your body.

This intuitive way of wireless pairing drastically simplifies the design of Man-Machine user interfaces and the interactions with smart objects. Computing is no longer just what you see or what you hear. Another human sense comes into play: What you touch!
