What kind of thing have you made, are currently making, or want to make? (Keep it general)

I'm in the process of building a device which will measure one's mood by measuring and visualizing Heart Rate Variability. Given my background at hakia measuring and visualizing the mood (psychology) of specific entities (stocks, products, brands, politicians) on the Web, Blogosophere and Twitterverse, I now want to focus on empowering humans to make better decisions by making them conscious of their moods. Not only do I want to build a device that will make them aware of their mood, but it will give them the opportunity to change it. Ultimately I want to build more consciousness into social networks by allowing users to share their mood digitally.

What kinds of things would you like to learn about, either from presenters, or from your fellow Makers?

Given the success of Pebble Technologies and the Mio Alpha watch, I am very intrigued in using Kickstarter to assess interest, and also raise capital. Additionally, I want to learn more about fabrication and design iteration.

What are your favorite tools and services? Software, hardware, fabrication, whatever you love.

Pebble Technologies. Mio Alpha Watch
