Bug Labs

This relates to my earlier post about personal fabrication. Bug Labs is selling a system of gadget components that allows you to create you own personal gadget. So if you want a camera with GPS unit and motion sensor you can build one. Simply purchase the base unit and appropriate peripherals and hack away. They also provide user friendly software so you can write you own apps to run on your gadget. Although, they say you might want to wait a couple of months if you have no programming experience, while they build an experienced developer community.
