Embeded LiveCode -- a distant dream that is dead???

Since you asked...
There is a stop watch that has six buttons, two of them can twist/spin too,
and two of the buttons have a quick push or a long push, and it includes an
earpiece, microphone, speaker, wireless (but not wifi) communications with
a USB FOB to capture data real-time (hence the LiveCode management of that
data to parse and calculate/display post race) and communicate with a horn
(audio) and portable, 2-line scoreboard.
So that watch is a robust $400 device that can hold programs - pace
workouts, etc. too.
It is made in China and the system's inventors are from Australia and I'm
going to meet with them today and for the next couple of days at a trade
show in Cleveland, Ohio.
The vision/dream would be to do LiveCode on that watch as an embeded
software system -- but -- I might be all wet. (Of course I am.)
And, it is a super small market.
