Woodenshark's TapTap wristband has just been launched and it is perfect for couples to communicate with each other using taps and wireless vibrations. The TapTap is a touch communication wristband device that uses transfer touch to send messages to each other. It also has other uses which include acting as a smart alarm, a game controller and an activity tracker.

According to the TapTap Web site, the TapTap touch communication wristband senses "taps" and transmits it instantly to the person wearing the other half of the paired wristband. What's great about this device is that it can be used even if your special someone is in another part of the world!

All you have to do once you're both wearing a pair of the TapTap wristbands is to just tap it and the other person will feel it vibrate. It's like sending morse code or poking someone from a distance but with a cute twist.

Woodenshark's TapTap wristband has a sleek, minimalistic design and comes in a variety of colors including black, pink, light blue, grey, orange and yellow. Other stylish designs for those who want to make a fashion statement will reportedly be available in the future. These might include black and white stripes, red and black polka dots and a wood grain-like finish. A pair of TapTap wristbands is available for $130.
