Microsoft wins patent on wearable device that transfers data through your body

To be clear, this Microsoft invention isn’t your average smart watch with different time-telling faces. In fact, the patent makes no mention of the device’s ability to tell time at all. The technology, as outlined in its application, is all about making data transferring. (Industry, Microsoft, Mobile, Tech)

This skin as network has been known for years... at least 8-10 years from what I remember reading that long ago.

So what they are doing is making it possible for a load of people to hold hands as some kind of VLAN with a ISP at one end and an xbox one at the other so that people can 'check in' to be able to play their games from non internet connected areas.

Electricity on my erection, no thanks.

Nothing is simple with Microsoft, even their patents.

When audio and visual won't do, let the NSA scan your mind.

This is great,
Maybe we can encode the message "Shove the Xbone up your ass", then Don Mattrick can shove his thumb up his arse. Taking the core gamers message physically.

Couldn't agree more. I guess I'm the only one getting creeps about someone watching me (and everyone in my home) and monitoring my heartbeats 24X7X365. Surprisingly no "game critiques / journalists" are talking about this $hit.

Simple question: If I don't play kinec games, why the F do I need that thing plugged M$? M0r0ns

For me, forget about DRM and always online, this single thing could be enough to break the deal.
Iltapalanyymi  +   806d ago
no you are not the only one getting the creeps. this shit is scary.

Next thing you know, MS will be trying to patent some mind-controlling technique, which will be an add-on to Xbone of course.
Red_Devilz  +   806d ago
And
1) You'll have to pay for it.

2) You can not give it to anyone except those in your family

3) It has to control your mind once every 24hr. If you are going to friend's place, once every 1 hr.

4) It has to approve your "friendship" with other people at least 30days prior to knowing that person.

5) Instead of "Xbone On", in next softare update you say "Hail B@llmer"

So when you impregnate somebody you can transfer knowledge to your future child at the same time?
Conzul  +   806d ago
Nah they'd have to do a DNA-encoding update for the tech.

So in the future all accounts and activities will be literally tied to the user...
