49 Examples of Inter-Device Communication

From Futuristic Multi-Mice to iPhone Watches

— July 22, 2013 — Tech
Many people today use wireless products to help them simplify their lifestyle by simultaneously connecting two or more household commodities together. Wireless products are becoming more readily available for purchase because they help to combine several tasks and products into one seamless connection that can be easily controlled from the touch of a button.

While wireless products like keyboards, laptops and headphones are convenient, when two or more products can be hooked up to work together through the same frequency, that's when the real advantages of wireless technology shines through. Products like workout exercise apps that connect your smartphone to your bicycle or security cameras that display footage in real-time to your computer make the most of wireless technology by merging several products to work through one multi-functional frequency.
