1. An interactive wireless device comprising:

  • an optical receiver, the optical receiver including means adapted for receiving a first digitally encoded, optical signal from an associated, complementary, interactive wireless device, which first digitally encoded, optical signal is generally obfuscated from human perception;

    an optical/electrical transducer, the optical/electrical transducer including means for generating an electrical, digital logic signal corresponding to an optical signal received into the optical receiver;

    a decoder, the decoder including means adapted for decoding the digital logic signal to generate at least one control signal corresponding to the received optical signal;

    an output unit, the output unit including means adapted for generating a humanly cognizable output response from the interactive wireless device in accordance with the at least one control signal so as to provide an illusion of collaborative, interactive communication between the interactive wireless device and the associated, complementary interactive wireless devices;

    a memory the memory including means for storing data representative of at least one pre-selected motivational signal, which motivational signal corresponds to a desired response behavior of the associated, complementary interactive wireless device;

    an electrical/optical transducer, the electrical/optical transducer including means for generating a second digitally encoded optical signal corresponding to the at least one pre-selected motivational signal; and

    means adapted for communication of the second digitally encoded optical signal to the complementary interactive wireless device.
