Apple patent shows RF embedded all over the place


An Apple patent application is currently burning up the Internet, what with the possibility that we’ll all, one day, be outfitted with a series of tiny RF transmitters. The application, named “Personal area network systems and devices and methods for use thereof,” envisions a world where our shoes, socks, shirts, iPods, MacBooks and everything else are connected via radio, so that they’re able to send and receive data as easy as the day is long, wherever we may be.

Then you realize that this is merely a patent application, one of many, and you’re all of a sudden a whole lot less excited.
