since we have computers, super-computers and soon quantum computers it would be cool to be able to monitor your production. like a monitor with an interface that you set up to show your production chain. and the computer communicates with the machines thru some kind of tp-cable or something. and with the computer be able to increase and decrease production. also, see how much resources are being used and how much you're producing in items. and also be able to automate more, like if you don't need more ore, lower the production or turn it off and with feedback from machines be able to ramp it up again when it needs. and if you do this you can save some power as well and also look cool. and if you use tp-cable to communicate, make so we can make like a network so all machines can communicate.
