If you really dislike the green around it, it shouldn't be that hard to make some sort of shell that would encase it (easy to take apart, for sure). It would make it look like it was professionally made, too. It may be as simple as going to a few stores with it in hand and looking for little plastic containers with clipping tops that are the correct size. Then you could cut out a hole for the USB, the power, the LCD, and the buttons. When you need to work on it, just open it up and work on it.

Also, I noticed that others were asking about programming it. Is that part difficult? I have approximately zero experience with any of this, but would like to make one if it would work with no more difficulty than the original MPGuino.
