Will the next wireless infrastructure be humans wearing radios?

A team of Irish researchers are studying how humans can become the next wireless infrastructure, by wearing sensors, radios and gateways linked together in body-to-body networks.

With redesigned antennas, low-power radios, and new network protocols, potentially huge, constantly shifting body networks could create an ultra-high-bandwidth mobile infrastructure. Such networks could offload even large file transfers from cellular networks, by making use of parallel transmission and routing through a mesh of body nodes. The body node can link to fixed access points, gateways, or cellular networks when needed. — via redwolf.newsvine.com
