* (Semi-)accessible power terminals with a DC/DC converter accepting 3.7-24V
  (and maybe also a diode in there so you cannot do it wrong and
  (low-voltage) AC does actually work, too)
* Water and dust proof.
* I'm not sure how useful it is, but I imagine having the ability
  to send/receive on two separate channels could be very useful.
* USB connector, so you can attach USB sticks for storage
  (or alternatively sd-card slot)
