my thoughts:
1. hacking becomes even more invasive than it already is
2. being able to power (small) electronic devices using our own bodies

Ok, am I the only one who thinks this is a bit creepy.
So basically were gonne hang around and shock each other with databeams in the future...:

"Ouch... hell man, what did you do that for???"
"Chill down, you just got my unimaginable porn collection!"
"Ow... ok... far out... touch me again"
"With pleasure"

Actually, to be honest, if it works, why not, radical new ways in technology are possible breakthroughs.

Hmm, this isn't new, I seem to recall New Scientist a year or so ago covering some work done by MIT on the concept of a PAN (Personal Area Network) that used the electrical conductivity of the body as a network backbone (sic). One of the ideas being thrown around back then was that business folks could exchange business cards (contact details etc) just by shaking hands.
