I have always been fascinated by digital watches. Yea, I know, pretty geeky. When smartwatches came out, I thought that it would be the coolest thing ever. But as it turned out, they just became small displays for our phones. So I set out to create a smartwatch that was a stand alone computer and could be programmed to do anything you wanted with the very popular Arduino system. I started the project as part of a contest that Atmel was doing (I did not win), but continued it to improve the original design. You can see videos of the project at my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/G1-fJkdh0o4
And you can read up on the project on my blog: http://arduinosmartwatch.blogspot.com/
And here is where I first conceived of the idea. It shows the power of a breadboard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1kwe0kx0b4
I hope to continue to offer interesting, engaging, and educational products to help motivate and inspire nuts like me.

Thanks so much for the Kickstarter backers who came and purchased modules. You guys helped me during the campaign and helped me on the launch of my site. I was able to test most of the functionality of the ordering, payment, and file delivery systems for the site. You guys are the best. I truly hope you enjoy the kits and have as much fun learning on them as I had making them. Here is a picture of the first order to leave Subsystems. It's pretty exciting to us. Thanks again for all your support!
