Description Ayatsuka and Rekimoto propose tranSticks -Ayatsuka and Rekimoto propose tranSticks - pairs of virtually connected memory cards that can be used to establish secure connections between devices. TranSticks also provide access to shared virtual storage space, which can be used for synchronizing files across connected devices. Connections are established by placing the tranSticks in devices and are closed by removing them.n devices and are closed by removing them.  +
