Open-source fabrication advocate
and 2010 TED Fellow Dominic Muren just sent word of his latest project: an enclosure for a MakerBot Wristwatch called Makerwatch SSG. (Thanks, Dominic!)

The SSG design framework, developed by Dominic at the Humblefactory, breaks an object down into different functional layers — skin, skeleton, and guts. The exciting thing about this separation is how it makes the process of making derivative objects, or entirely new remixes much easier. All you need to know to make a new SSG watch is how to sew, and where to buy some fly fabric. The skin gives most of the style, and some of the function (clasps, pockets, pen-loops — you decide!)
