An acoustics-based method can utilize the human body as a communication channel to propagate information across different devices. The proposed system can propagate acoustic signals under 20 kHz within or between human bodies and even between the human body and the environment. The web extra at https://youtu.be/6Vo3gm5oJnM illustrates human-body-mediated communication concepts discussed in the article.
