Volunteers Needed - Firmware, DSP

With my full time employer, I have little time to work on Firmware, signal processing and Bluetooth power optimization.  If you would like to contribute to this Open Source Hardware Software project, please contact me by leaving a comment.

Volunteers needed for:
  • Customize Bluetooth 4.0 stack code provided from Texas Instruments
  • Signal processing on the 8051 processor for heart rate detection.
  • Timer on/off optimization for low power.
Do you own a TI CC2540DK-MINI development kit? Then you can develop and test at home!

Are you a Product Designer or into Industrial Design?
  • We need a watch enclosure to house these electronics.
Please leave a comment if you are interested with which topic you can contribute on!
I aim to post the final project on Kickstarter.com for funding and compensation can be provided after we obtain funds, depending on level of participation.

  3. Perhaps you could add a quick post on how it works (e.g. what type of sensor, what mode of operation, maybe a hardware block diagram and/or schematics) - people are more likely to volunteer if they know what they're in for.

  5. I will be hacking together a very similar project here: http://ideation.upverter.com/posts/d37371c2-99ff-4b0a-91d5-6e3c02c99746

    At Upverter + YC Combinator. If you are interested in getting your board together as part of it, I really have no preferences what goes into hardware, we might as well contribute to your project at the same time. Let me know if I can be of any use.

    I have some 8051 experience, by not much DSP experience, but might be able to help out.

  8. Hi, are you still looking for a product designer, I'm a graduate who will soon be doing an Msc in product design and this would be a great project to work on, Im really interested in the medical aspect of the design with the intergration of new technolgies. It would be a pleasure to work with you.

    1. Yes! e-mail me at fatih.aybar [at] femtogen (dot) com
      I was planning on using the ipod nano case for now, but a professional watch would be better.
