An intuitive context aware service between two devices is possible using touch with the direct digital intra-body com-munication. Using this technology, users with multimedia devices may simply touch them to establish network connec-tion, transfer data, and provide the required service; hence the name Touch-And-Play (TAP). Using TAP, users can dis-close their context by touching the specific device. For in-stance, a user carrying a digital camera touches the TV to begin a slide show or a printer to print a photo. TAP is expected to enable the provision of intuitive, context-aware service. This paper discusses the communication protocol of TAP and its application. 1
