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.

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.
