haptic communication between wearables

by lgma on Sun Jan 24, 2021 10:50 pm

which products i should purchase in order to achieve 1:1 communication between two haptic wearables. ex: sensor in wearable A, on touch, triggers haptic feedback in wearable B, over a distance of miles.
Thank you

The first thing to decide is what kind of communication you will use. For reliable communication over miles, the practical options would be:
Cellular phone (requires SIM cards and phone service at both ends)
Internet (requires WiFi access at both ends)

--Is there not also the option of using radio frequency per Zigbee protocol?

--In this project https://learn.adafruit.com/heybrows you use cell network. would i be able to follow this direction except use IFTT to trigger a haptic response rather than a text message (and use different sensors)?

Not reliably over a distance of miles. If you have clear line-of-sight and tuned directional antennae, you might be able to go almost a mile.

Yes. That would be a good place to start for a cellular phone based implementation.
