Don't you fear punching your head in case of an accident?
I would probably attach it somewhere else, or with such an angle that it would rotate on the handlebar if I fall on it. Keep your head for more designs ;)

Haven't thought about this.
At least It's flat with the Device mounted.
And in a hopefully never occurring frontal crash you'll leave the hole bike behind since if the deceleration acts on your whole body.

Well, sometimes you hold the bar so much that you do not necessarily fly OTB... I even badly dislocated my thumb on the first time I fell off my (road) bike.
And you could break your device! :D
