Just do it yourself...

Check this out. A while ago, Microsoft filed a patent for this:
Methods and apparatus for distributing power and data to devices coupled to the human body are described. The human body is used as a conductive medium, e.g., a bus, over which power and/or data is distributed. Power is distributed by coupling a power source to the human body via a first set of electrodes. One or more device to be powered, e.g., peripheral devices, are also coupled to the human body via additional sets of electrodes. The devices may be, e.g., a speaker, display, watch, keyboard, etc. A pulsed DC signal or AC signal may be used as the power source. By using multiple power supply signals of differing frequencies, different devices can be selectively powered. Digital data and/or other information signals, e.g., audio signals, can be modulated on the power signal using frequency and/or amplitude modulation techniques.

The summer has been particularly busy, just like it was last year at this time.  But this weekend, I am venturing up to the Sacramento area for a few days.  Should be fun!

A New Adventure
Please pray for Jay at the Discernment Blog as he leaves for the pre-novitiate for the central province Order of Preachers (Dominicans).  If you get a chance, read through his blog archives and see all about how his vocation has unfolded and where his vocation journey has taken him!

God be with you, Jay!
