As an engineer by profession and a maker by trade, I’m always looking for versatility and tools that I would use often. For my wishlist, I wanted items that would allow me to delve into my hobbies as a maker. Open source is a big component of my wishlist–I plan to mod my backpack, and the 3D printer and watch are both open source. Having the freedom to customize my items is important to me.
