Hi David,
Reading this made me think of what I saw at Microsoft Research this summer. They have made a device that can use the body as an input device. It can accurately measure where you tap on the skin of you arm and fire an event to a device or an action based on that interaction with the skin - skinput. We go from baby clothing that touches our skin and is connected to out vitals to our skin it self becoming part of what can be leveraged in wearable devices.

They have one successful prototype of changing the song played and volume on an iPhone while running.

It is as if the skin becomes a touch interface.


Here is a link to the skinput project page:
