Wait, wait… Did you just say “Run it like a Video Game so people can’t get in”? Do you realize how incredibly wrong that statement is? Ever hear of Game Shark? Game Hackers? ‘Nuff said.

Let me respond: If all you had access to was the controller, would you be able to do any hacking? Likewise, I don’t think it’s that hard to encase the thing so people can’t get in. Key and alarm and more. When I meant like a video game, I meant making the thing with no access to any underlying OS. It’s like those little handheld games which only run one game. I feel like they’re making it way too complicated. Anyway, a voter-verifiable paper trail should solve all that anyway.
