This Promising Wireless Technology Could Help Power the Future Metaverse
A new wireless technology that uses the human body as a conductor could help usher in a new generation of sleeker VR and AR devices. Well, not the body exactly, but the electromagnetic field surrounding it. Ixana’s technology, called Wi-R, makes use of the body’s natural ability as a conductor. A device either held or worn can transmit data over this field incredibly efficiently – Ixana claims it uses a hundredth of the amount of energy typically used in conventional wireless connections like WiFi or Bluetooth.
