With the tremendous growth in the hardware miniaturization technology, there are many types of digital electronic gadgets being used in daily life for different purposes. These devices are built to work alone and they typically cannot access or share each other's hardware or software resources. But the fact is that such devices are constrained in battery-energy and resources. In the presence of a generic resource sharing infrastructure, these are able to share and access each other's hardware, software resources, and data. Thus these devices become more efficient in terms of energy expense, and more enhanced in functionality, and usability. In this paper, the authors propose the concept of Universal Computing and Communication Interface (UCCI) that facilitates such sharing of resources between two wireless portable devices.
