PROXIMITY AND DIRECTION BASED ELECTRONIC DEVICE PAIRING

An electronic device pairing system uses proximity and direction to connect two devices wirelessly. When a pairing mode is activated, the first device can detect if it is close enough to the second device based on a set distance. If the devices are within range and in pairing mode, a visual indicator like a glow effect shows the direction and distance to the second device for easy connection.
