Has anyone disassembled there NEEO yet?

My thought is to disassemble the remote and replace the PCB with a Raspberry Pi Zero or similar. The brain is if zero use to me, and I never needed that. My Home Assistant server already handles everything, and actually works. Therefore I would just keep the remote stand alone, and write a simple UI for it solely based on communication with Home Assistant.

Should be fairly easy, in case it is feasible hardware-wise.

If anyone has disassembled their remotes yet, I would very much like to know if my plan is feasible. I would like to be able to connect the touchscreen of the remote, buttons etc to the Pi, and have it be powered by the battery and charging functionality that it has.
