RedTacton: A Revolutionary Communication Technology

  In today’s fast-paced world, communication is vital for every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s for personal or professional purposes, we rely on various communication technologies to stay connected. However, most of these technologies have limitations and can be improved. RedTacton technology is one such innovation that promises to revolutionize the way we communicate.

RedTacton uses human-area networking technology to enable communication between devices and people. It is possible to enable communication through the electric field on the surface of the human body. RedTacton makes use of Ubiquitous computing that enables communication through devices or objects.

What is RedTacton?

RedTacton is a human area networking technology that uses the surface of the human body as a communication network. It was developed by NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation), one of Japan’s largest telecommunications companies. Unlike traditional wireless communication technologies that use electromagnetic waves to transmit data, RedTacton uses weak electric fields that are induced onto the body’s surface. These fields enable communication between devices, making RedTacton an ideal technology for applications that require high-speed, reliable, and secure communication.

How does it work?

Red Tacton technology works by using the human body as a communication medium. It employs a technology called electric field communication (EFC), which utilizes the electric field generated on the surface of the skin to transmit data. The technology works by sending a weak electrical signal through the body that can be picked up by a receiver on another device.

Red Tacton devices consist of a transmitter and a receiver, which can be integrated into various objects such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The transmitter sends out a modulated electric field that is then received by the receiver, which converts the electric field into digital data that can be understood by the device.

To summarise:

  • Red Tacton uses the electric field emitted on the surface of the human body.
  • When the human body comes near a RedTacton device A transmission path is formed
  • Using RedTacton, communication starts between the device and the human body.
  • Any human body part can be used for communication.
  • Do note that if the human body moves away from the RedTacton device, communication gets disrupted.

Benefits of RedTacton

RedTacton technology offers several benefits over traditional communication technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Here are some of them:

  1. High speed: RedTacton can transmit data at a speed of up to 10 Mbps, which is faster than most other wireless communication technologies.
  2. Secure: Since Red Tacton uses the human body as a communication medium, it is very secure. It is virtually impossible to intercept the data transmitted through RedTacton, making it ideal for sensitive applications.
  3. Hands-free operation: Red Tacton enables the hands-free operation of devices since it doesn’t require physical contact between the device and the user.
  4. Versatile: Red Tacton can be integrated into various devices and objects, making it a versatile technology.

Applications of RedTacton

RedTacton has a wide range of potential applications. Here are just a few examples:

  1. Healthcare: RedTacton could be used to transmit patient data between medical devices without the need for wires or cables. Read more about wearable biosensors used in the healthcare field.
  2. Gaming: Red Tacton could be used to create new types of gaming experiences that use the human body as a controller.
  3. Automotive: Red Tacton can be used to create a “smart car” that uses the human body to control various features like the audio system or climate control.
  4. Security: Red Tacton can be used to create secure access systems that use the human body as a key.
  5. Conferencing: RedTecton can be helpful in sharing data quickly among people in a conference room.
  6. Entertainment: Red Tacton could be used to create immersive entertainment experiences that use the human body to control virtual environments.

Challenges of RedTacton

While RedTacton has a lot of potentials, there are also some challenges that need to be overcome. One of the main challenges is the limited range of technology. Because RedTacton relies on the electric fields generated by the human body, it can only transmit data over short distances. This makes it unsuitable for applications that require long-range communication.

Another challenge is the need for both devices to come into contact with each other. This makes it difficult to use Red Tacton for applications where the two devices are not physically close to each other.


RedTacton is a revolutionary technology that promises to change the way we communicate. Its ability to transmit data through the human body makes it a secure and versatile technology that can be used in various industries. While it is still in the early stages of development, RedTacton technology has the potential to transform the way we interact with technology and each other.

We shall wait to hear from the NTT group for further progress in this technology.

    Nice One,
    all the data which is required i had got from here but there are no pictures available here and if still more data is required to present a paper??
    did it has developed any yet is there any official announcements are done in present days??
    hoping for faster and good reply,
    thankyou sir.

Did it help? Would you like to express?
