I'm designing an electrical device that has many segmented parts. The main hub will house the battery and the segments will only be connected using magnets(But it has other forms of structural connections). How can I transfer energy and data to these segmented parts? Also keep in mind this device is hand held and worn by the user. Each segmented part is comparable to a small IPod Nano like screen. Each piece is about 27mm by 10mm with a depth of about 5mm. I guess the first question should be, is this even possible to engineer? Also these parts are all meant to be touch screens.
Any reply's are very much appreciated!
