Custom alerting via vibration - Potentially wearable?

by hakiyu on Wed Jun 22, 2022 7:03 am

Hello!

Looking to create something that can alert me via vibration (or shock?! haha) when I'm sleeping. I want it to be able to be triggered via a Python script and even potentially a POST API call. It would then vibrate the device, for example. It would also be awesome if it could be wireless, either activated via Bluetooth or something.

Is this doable? Would it be easier to do something wired up that goes under my pillow or something like that?

I just learned about Adafruit today, so please pardon my ignorance, but man the potential seems amazing! Any ideas or insight would be super helpful, thanks so much.

Have a look at haptic for a wearable application: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-drv2605-haptic-controller-breakout.

For WiFi or BLE control you could use something like https://www.adafruit.com/product/5426.
