Human-Body Communication with Binaural Hearing Aids

Wearable technology seems poised to take over next-generation electronics, yet most wireless communication techniques are not up to the task. To tackle this issue, scientists from the Tokyo University of Science, Japan, delved deep into human-body communications, in which human tissue is used as the transmission medium for electromagnetic signals. Their findings pave the way to more efficient and safer head-worn devices, such as binaural hearing aids and earphones.
