It is not a problem to automate the execution of scripts or to login from home
via X Emulation or some sort. What you need is
a fabricator which after making a part is able to initialize itself (removing
the part, cleaning, etc.) I am not sure if one off the fabricators out there
got so far. By the way, same feedback (life camera) would be nice.

Some comments?
