The Vibrating Compass Anklet has three basic parts: a '''controller''', a '''pager motor array''', and an '''armature'''.
  
 
The '''controller''' controls the motors, provides power and data and sensory input.  The controller consists of an Arduino (a programmable board that uses the ATMega processor + Arduino bootloader, which is designed for exactly this kind of project), a Shift Register (which takes a single byte of data from the Arduino and uses this to trigger a single motor), the compass chip (which connects to the Arduino), and the battery (which connects to the Arduino).  Basically, everything in the controller connects to the Arduino, and then the shift register connects to the pager motor array.
