Neo for DATA acquisition with USB

Hi Michael,

you are right about using Arduino as a simple hardware interface between Neo
and other hardware, such as sensors, actuators, etc.

I am an electronic engineer and a hardware/software developer.
I use Arduino on many projects. So far I didn't interface Arduino with my
Neo, but it is something that I was thinking and I will do, as soon as I
have some time.

I will report here when I do some progress.
