(Should we use [stickers](http://www.amazon.com/Crocodil-Graphics-Keyboard-Stickers-Protector/dp/B005WG47BU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386683933&sr=8-1&keywords=keyboard+sticker) or [covers](http://www.amazon.com/UPPERCASE-Ultra-Clear-Keyboard-Macbook/dp/B007FL6100/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1386683944&sr=8-2&keywords=keyboard+cover)?)
# The future If we can keep pushing toward that magic $2 million mark, dreams like **Bluetooth** in the keyboard and a whole new **web-maker** Kano level will become feasible. Wherever we end up, we can thank the stars, the robots, the Raspberry Pi, the Linux kernel – but mostly, you guys. Your story, and your kits, are in worldwide motion.
