Hello, I am not an electrical engineer so pardon my inaccurate vocabulary. I want to have a device made with these characteristics. GPS (and logging), xyz accelerometer logging, touch screen display (small...~3"), digital camera (with video), temperature sensor, solar charger and built-in induction charger,IR dataport,real-time transmitter with range of 200 yards, and cpu to run clock function, multiple timers function, and other custom functions to handle the data (or display it). Perhaps run on a well known open source OS. Yeah, I know, it sounds like an IPhone. I don't want the phone part, speakers, bluetooth, or a bunch of apps. It will be used as a sports data logger for competition athletes. I anticipate attaching this to the athelete and sitting in the bleachers with a laptop monitoring position and other data as it is streamed in real-time. If a coach is not around, then it should record the event to be analyzed at a later time. I'm hoping that it can be really small, light and power miserely to last for many hours between charges. Is this something that can be produced economically for a short production run, or perhaps even on the shelf already?
