what is redtacton
What is RedTacton?
  • HAN – Human Area Network – the last meter
  • Transmits data utilizing body’s electric field

The body becomes its own Ethernet cable

  • High speed – up to 10 mbps
  • Very secure
  • Uses a transmitter and a receiver, or a transceiver, which provides both functions
how it works
How it works

Point to Point Network

Transceivers exchange information – no server

Optical properties of electro-optic crystal – varies based on electric field

Data received using photonic electric field sensor combined with electro-optic crystal and laser light

step by step
Step by Step
  • Transmitting transceiver creates a change in the field
  • Receiving transceiver recognizes the change in the electric field
  • Electro-optical crystal uses laser to convert and read the signal
  • Requires physical contact

Must be wearing the transceiver and touching something else with a transceiver

  • Less potential for wireless interference and between other RedTacton devices
  • Allows for encryption and authentication
  • Programmable

You decide what to share with whom and what devices you communicate with

  • No military experience
  • Not members of the NRA
  • Only experience with the military and guns is from TV and movie exposure

competitive viability
Competitive Viability
  • Power of Buyers v. Power of Suppliers
    • Power is with the device manufacturers
    • What is a device?
      • Cell phones, PDA’s
      • Any device we wish to communicate with
    • Buyers may demand monetary benefit to include new technology
      • New technology may require significant design changes
      • R&D still needed
        • Government, Military, or medical professionals
  • Bluetooth
  • Zigbee
  • IrDA
  • UWB
  • Skinplex
  • Verichip
  • Time & cost
  • Needs to gain popularity to pull instead of push
  • Widespread marking campaigns and education
  • Not useful unless many people adopt it
  • Medical
    • This area has the financial resources available for Research and Development and it also has the potential to be beneficial to a large percentage of the population. 
  • Military
    • If the military adopts this technology is it likely the public would never see it.
  • Consumer Applications
    • Necessary funding for continued R&D does not make this a likely scenario in the next decade
