Apple is bringing "File Transfer through handshakes"

Have you ever imagined that the file transfer will be so easy as to shake hands with your friends. Yes Apple is bringing this technology soon through its Apple Watch that you could share your files with just a hand shake with someone by wearing Apple Watch. A new Apple patent titled “Gesture-based Information Exchange Between Devices in Proximity” details that sort of file transfer technology.

Apple explains. Data can also transfer between various devices, such as phones or payment terminals, the latter of which is already available with Apple Pay.
“Users can control and customize what information their devices send in a context-specific manner; this can allow users to manage and control the sharing of personal data and/or other information items according to their preferences while still allowing the exchange to occur automatically (without being expressly initiated by the user),”
In the patent summary, Apple describes creating a file exchange during a “greeting event,” which it says could be anything as simple as a handshake, a hug, a bow or a hand slap (high-five!). Apple said that sort of physical exchange could kick off the transfer of data such as contact information, location data and more.


Patently Apple, which discovered the patent, also highlighted Apple’s intentions to get this sort of system to work with all sorts of wearables, including rings, eyeglasses, belts, shoes, scarfs and more. Believe it or not, as Google has already revealed, those sorts of wearables may not be that far off.

A nod and high-five to business cards

This Apple Watch patent is actually nod and a high-five to technology that has used this sort of quick information exchange before, in an effort to eliminate business cards.
Google acquired a company called Bump for its popular smartphone-gesture-enabled app of the same name, but discounted it last year. Razer first brought the idea to a wearable with the Razer Nabu and Razer Nabu X, calling them "social smartbands." It had mixed results. What the Apple Watch patent could do differently is tell the difference between work-related event greetings and social event greeting, with different data exchanged in each environment. Of course, like all patents, there's no guarantee that this greeting exchange will ever be used in the current Apple Watch or the Apple Watch 2.
