The Idea
My idea is that on this island, there was a small hardware store that sold mainly technological things, such as circuit boards, tools for tampering with electronics, and other such things. This building concept would bring a few new game features to the table.

The New Features
Among the aforementioned new features would be the ability to tamper with fuse boxes in houses. With some practice and the right tools, the player could develop the ability to rewire the fuse box, and set up traps involving the lights, as well as reroute power from unused areas to conserve generator fuel.

Another feature could be to create simple robots to carry out tasks. For example, a refurbished RC car with a camera attached could allow for the scouting of buildings before one charges in blindly. This car could also be fitted with a noise machine to attract the attention of zombies and clear out an area temporarily.

Hopefully this catches the attention of some people and some good discussion is sparked :p.

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
The tech hardware store alone is a good idea, the more unique buildings the better in my opinion plus finding tech manuals and specialized equipment, and the R/C Car w/interchangeable gadgets is something I thought had been mentioned but I did not get a hit in the search bar, good one with that too.
+1

As for the fuse box this will be possible as it is a planned feature from the "old version" as seen in the concept videos.
