Body WiFi for the wearable technology age

A completely new wireless standard might be needed to provide connectivity in the age of wearables, replacing the WiFi with Body Fi, a researcher has suggested.

In an article on the Generator Research website, editor Andrew Sheehy describes how the current wireless standards fall short of what’s needed to provide smooth connectivity for the increasing number of wearable devices and proposed a way to tackle the problem.

Instead of connecting each of these devices separately to a wireless network, he proposed to connect them to a single controlling device that could act as an interface for the rest of the body network.
