I'm pretty new to the software side of Arduino and need some help with a project I'm working on.
I am trying to make two vibrating bracelets, these will be worn by an individual on either side of the body (both wrists).
Bracelet 1 has a Beetle BLE, a LiPo battery, and a vibration motor.
Bracelet 2 has an identical set-up with a Beetle BLE, a LiPo battery, and a vibration motor.
I used this guide to make each bracelet vibrate independently of each other however I want need the devices to vibrate in an offset fashion.
In other words:
bracelet 1 vibrates for 1 second and stops for 1 second while bracelet 2 vibrates for 1 second and rests for 1 second. So you have only one bracelet vibrating at a time.
The issue I am having is I can't find any information on how to accomplish this connection between devices.
I was hoping you kind people could point me in the right direction for research and learning resources to get some code written to make it work.
I saw a project that connect two Beetle BLE's for proximity sensing but the provided code makes zero sense to me (just lack of knowledge in the syntax) so maybe I can repurpose some of that code for what I need?
for further information on the project:
There is currently a device on the market that does this but it is very very expensive for what it is and I am hoping to add features in the future.
These devices are intended for "bi-lateral stimulation" used to help reduce anxiety and stress.
Later down the line I want to control the bracelets with an app on my phone to start and stop the devices and have different vibration patterns, or have it vibrate with songs playing on the phone but I have a friend who does app development for that side of things.
Even further down the line I want to replace the second bracelet with a smartwatch but then it gets app heavy and not so much Arduino based.
Thanks in advance for any help and insight.
