Yesterday's ride home from work was greatly enriched by my Linux powered bike computer:
It works very well indeed; the only niggle being that it displays speed details in km/h, which resulted in the old "divide by 8 and multiply by 5" calculation being performed on the Oxford streets. Even just zip tied on as it was here it was very nice and survived the rigours of bunny hops, wheelies in traffic and my ham fisted bashing at it.
The power of open source software and hardware is perfectly demonstrated by fixing a phone to the front of your bike. Imagine how good the results would be if somebody did it properly.
The CAD files for the Neo's case are available for download, as is the source for both tangoGPS and the entire OpenMoko operating system. Imagine the product that could be made if someone like Hope used their engineering expertise to create a stem mounted Neo case, like they do with their fantastic lights. They could pay for some tweaks to the software to be made, just to make it all a little more bike friendly, produce a run of CNC'd cases with integrated stem face plate, and sell them as the most bespoke bicycle computer ever made. Marketing could sell the other features, maybe in terms of safety, and OA could provide design consultancy. It would be a great combination.
