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;

    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 associated, complementary interactive wireless device.
