Features that would be cool

  • Allow rooms to be distributed between processes (and servers).
  • Allow for outside sources of data to easily provide data to the campus
  • Allow for sending data from the campus to the outside world
  • pastebin
  • image/video/html pastebin
  • chat
  • programmable robots
  • permissions
