Microsoft Research is breaking new ground when it comes to how an individual thinks about his body's relationship to the vast amount of technology in his surroundings. By leveraging the body's natural electromagnetic field, Microsoft Research has found a way to turn the human body into a remote control that would operate household devices.

The body-as-housegold-remote-control project works by treating the body like an antenna that receives noise from the home's devices. Microsoft Research has found a way to turn the entire space of a home into an interactive surface.

This unique and innovative Microsoft Research endeavor that repositions man's relationship to technology from passive to active, could have implications in other areas outside of the home. The Microsoft Research interactive body project blurs the lines between man and technology, making the developmental process quite controversial.
