I’m a really big fan of the personal biosensor movement. Being in medical school, I’m always thinking about the potential benefits of unlocking all sorts of health data, and although this next product doesn’t directly tackle these issues, I think it can be a really big leap in making that type of data readily available to us at all times.
The YC company I chose for this next Facelift produces Pebble. They’ve been ridiculously successful with raising money for their project on Kickstarter. Pebble basically is a personal assistant on your wrist. Playing your music, checking your email, etc, can all be done from no more than an arm’s length away. Developers will be able to create applications for Pebble taking it to new levels of use and functionality. I’m excited to see what will come of it.
Unlike the two previous Facelifts, this week’s product is something tangible and so I let it speak for itself. I took inspiration from both the Nest and Fitbit sites – two sites I like selling two products I love. Pebble is pretty sleek (especially in Jet Black), and I tried reflecting that in the design. I also kept the design minimal and out of the way, letting Pebble do most of the selling.
If anyone at Allerta (Pebble’s creator) is interested in getting the .psd, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NB: For all those who’ve emailed me: You’ve not been forgotten! It’s been a hectic week, but I am getting around to responding to all of you.
