Networked Surfaces

Provide network connectivity using physical surfaces

Such as desks, floors, etc.

All devices are surface-bound due to gravity: lets make use of this!

No 'plug', no special position/alignment required

Provides near-total mobility for non-wearable devices

Uses precise “topology” of metal pads to achieve this

Supports a range of services

Ethernet-style inter-computer networks

Slower serial busses for peripherals

Power

Other devices
