Question ID: 718282
I am a professional magician and am looking for the easiest way to
build a device that can be attached to a persons leg and tap a message
to them (the message being sent by someone up to 1000 feet away). I
have searched magic shops for this but can't find it anywhere and I
assume I am going to have to build it. The message will be a number
from 1 up to 52.

My question is in figuring out how I can get the transmitter/receiver
and more importantly a converter that can convert the radio signal
into a binary switch. Any creative suggestions as to how to get the
hammer/shocker/pincher part of the device to send the signal to the
person would be appreciated but is not required.

Please only answer this question with either 
a) a link to a store that has a pre-made device that can do this
(which I don't think exists)
b) Exact instructions on how to build such a device with links to each
item you are talking about and almost no need for any electrical
knowledge (very basic soldering at the most).

Also - I do not consider anything cheating...I just want to build this
as easily as possible. If I have to purchase a remote control from an
RC airplane or car that is perfectly acceptable (and definitely
preferred to having to mess with circuit boards).
There is no answer at this time.

How about using a dog shock collar.
