I could be tempted

This has some great potential. I can think of several things I would like to monitor.

All I need to start with is a sensor to see where my time goes- then I can look at the others.

Very interesting

I typically think of these types of products in terms of useability by developers. This shows a little something else - modable by customers. Gamers mod their games with low-barier-to-entry languages like Lua. Products like this one use Python and open web APIs to deliver modability to hardware devices.

A few decades ago, it was pretty common for people to put differnt carburators, shocks or shifters on their cars. I wonder if we're entering an era where similar activities will be possible in consumer electronics.

I can see it: Buy a set of phsiological sensors to help with some sport. Then Oops, you break a leg. Re-program the device to monitor healing progress.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
