I have a zillion startup ideas. Actually looking for SW, marketing people to partner on new product companies. My company will design/manufacture the HW.
I'm all 3, but mostly HW, though the company is often 1/2 programmers. (and I did post-grad studies in computer graphics SW)
low-power computers, display technology, communications, (Ethernet, WiFi, ZigBee, cell-comms), RAPID PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT. We design/build computer systems for commercial, industrial, medical and defense customers. Developed and demonstrated the world's first ZigBee lighting controls (Light Fair 2006).
Linux and Android on ARM processors. User interfaces. computer graphics (developed a powerful PC/CAD program before the IBM PC existed). Audio (completed a HD-based MP3 player for a US company a year before the first iPod came out). Robotics (just developed the US DoD's next-gen hand-held robot controllers).
Owner of a local tech business specializing in low-cost embedded computers, usually with LCDs, touch, wireless, etc. We design the boards and build in-house on our pick-and-place line. We've also created the first port of Android for the i.MX28 CPU.
