* Sterkere kabels fabriceren (krimpkous ofzo).

* nieuwe kabels zijn steviger, maar nog steeds niet stevig genoeg
 +
* Nieuw top-panel maken dat groter en stabieler is.
 +
* Deksel zoeken/bouwen zodat de bak 'stapelbaar' is.
 +
* Dingen meer in 'pack'vorm te steken, hoe re-producable is zo'n bak nu eigentlijk?
 +
* Multiplayer: verschillende bakken aan 1 host koppelen.
 +
* Checken of een arduino/beagleboard oid niet goedkoper uitkomt om keys te sturen naar de host pc. In principe moet het mogelijkzijn om a-z + 0-9 te gebruiken (een 36 keys?) terwijl de i-pac ook function keys gebruikt, en dat nogal hatelijk is en tot verliezen leid.
