Electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego demonstrated a new wireless communication technique that works by sending magnetic signals through the human body. The new technology could offer a lower power and more secure way to communicate information between wearable electronic devices, providing an improved alternative to existing wireless communication systems, researchers said. They presented their findings Aug. 26 at the 37th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society in Milan, Italy. While this work is still a proof-of-concept demonstration, researchers envision developing it into an ultra low power wireless system that can easily transmit information around the human body. An application of this technology would be a wireless sensor network for full-body health monitoring.Opposite of new. It's the oldest (human) version of the concept of radio or wireless. Primary and secondary windings of a transformer, separated by a few inches. Faraday, 1832. The false claim of novelty doesn't mean it's a bad idea. Obviously it's cleaner and more private to communicate pulses and waves DIRECTLY to a device like a pacemaker or injector pump, instead of sending the signal out through a wildly complex and PUBLIC wi-fi network. The real question is why anyone ever wanted to use the latter method when this obvious direct method was available. Answer is a no-brainer. Apple wanted to use PUBLIC communication because their whole purpose is mass surveillance. DAY 2 OF THE FINAL PURGE.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
