Most of us bear the hard effort to live by finding meaning in what we do. While technology makes us productive as a group, it only really works when it can also help us find meaning in our individual lives. Armed with the right tools we find meaning through storytelling, celebration, discovery, mourning, and myth making. What would you build with a technology small enough to strap to your wrist and powerful enough to help you find meaning in your life?
Votsh is an open-source project to build a watch. The project integrates the leading edge of technology. For example, combining ePaper displays with 3D printers to create a case. It is a well designed kit of software and hardware that anyone can use to express themselves, present a gift to another, and share the truths of living to their community.
A community of designers, engineers, fanatics, and business people is forming in support of Votsh. This site is a meeting place. We hope you will participate by following the activity on this site. At first the Votsh community will be concentrating on construction of the toolkit. Later, this site will feature notices of new activity and a place to make your watch.
Even though this project is about making a watch, the underlying spirit is to build machines that illuminate meaning in your life. Your watch becomes much more than a collection of gears and springs. It becomes instructive of where you have been and where you are going.
Please, consider joining us.
