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 http://www.preventforschools.org/sha/acheter-cialis-en-ligne.html. 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!
