Published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, an Apple filing for „Gesture-based information exchange between devices in proximity“ describes a secure data transfer system between two portable devices that works by detecting customizable gestures, or „greeting events“, such as handshakes, high-fives, hugs, fist bumps, bows, waves, and salutes.

The gestures trigger a customizable data set that takes into account device context, with a particular [...]
