I'm thinking new case for the Neo, CNC'd from a block of aluminium, it
could be just the back and sides, with a carbon fibre face plate with
a waterproof, yet touch sensitive screen. Audio via bluetooth, ports
protected by screw in aluminium plugs and the whole thing attached to
my bike by being physically bolted to part of it.

Why? Because I like my bikes and I find it very hard to go OTT with
them. Aluminium and carbon fibre would look awesome bolted to the
front of my bike 24 hours a day. The CAD files are out there, I just
need to convince somebody to make it for me!
