A project log for OSHWatch

An open-source "smart watch" that can be built from easily available parts, and assembled by hand. Designed for hackers

It's been pretty hectic at uni, but I'd like to share my latest improvements to the watch so far:

Where to from here?
Well I would definitely like to implement the bluetooth 4.0 driver when I have time, so that I can implement wireless sync with my PC and phone instead of requiring a USB cable.

I would also like to add gesture recognition for automatically waking up the display, a compass app using the built-in magnetometer, and a smart alarm clock that detects my sleeping patterns to determine the optimal time to wake me up at!

And finally I would like to create a new PCB that fixes all the issues I've had so far.

Of course, the entire project is available under the Open Source Hardware (OSHW) license, and I welcome any contributions. (I know one other person has tried building my design, with success!)
