possible improvement to this system:
- beagle board with video out that is moved off the wall ledge to a more easily accessible location for reboot
- using ip pdu units for remote power cycling and control of this device
- extending video over usb to the pen island and running the machine from there while the touchpanel remains in it's current locatino
- removing the relay controller from the door to a simple embedded solution with network capability (arduino with eth shield)
planned improvement to access systems at 2169.
