Neo for DATA acquisition with USB

I'd use an Arduino and hook up the sensor to the Arduino inputs. Gives 
you immediate access to a huge range of voltage or resistive sensors, 
and probably very easy to interface to I2C, OneWire, SPI, etc. sensors. 
Hundreds of examples on the web. Perhaps even thousands.

I'm pretty sure that Arduino to FreeRunner has already been demonstrated 
to work. Don't forget to put your USB port in host mode, and pay 
attention to the power discussions on the wiki and in the archives.
