While wearable computers are empowering fashion accessories, they bring with them a tangle of wires which connect their parts. As these subsystems be- gin to decouple and operate on less power, it becomes possible to wirelessly distribute their required data and power using to the wearer's body. We have demon- strated systems that transmit and receive both data and power, and are working to combine the two.
