An anonymous reader writes with this snippet from Medical Daily: “Members of the public could form the backbone of powerful new mobile internet networks by carrying wearable sensors. According to researchers from Queen’s University Belfast, the novel sensors could create new ultra high bandwidth mobile internet infrastructures and reduce the density of mobile phone base stations. The engineers from Queen’s renowned Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), are working on a new project based on the rapidly developing science of body centric communications.”
