    I am neither prepared nor talented enough to comment on the component or programming aspects of your build (cool project by the way), but have you considered a simple elastic band with hook-and-loop closure for mounting the final build package as a wearable (wristband, armband, or leg-band)? Could make for a pretty cool flight-“watch” or H.U.D. on your forearm and the display should always be easy to read instead of grabbing an holding a lanyard where you could read it.

    Open-Source Stig seems to have misplaced his fire suit and trademark white helmet. He’s got a good line through “Hammerhead”, but will this makeshift helmet help him through the “Follow-Through” without lifting?

No public wish lists :(
