🌸 3 control types: page, overlay & spatial
🌸 new inputs: wands, gestures & voice

I'm thinking about making this wee lappie into a matrix node (matrix.org) with a riot.im web client, using ngrok to give it a stable public endpoint. I have Slack group fatigue (so many!) and am generally interested in federated networks. I worry that the docs say little to nothing about moderation of harassment and abuse, though.
I found instructions for stopping it from going to sleep when the lid closes so now I can tuck it away and treat it like a wee server with a ~10 hour battery backup. I have an SSD that I'm going to attach for bulk storage. Next I want to find/make a web-based photo library so that I can escape Google Photos.

Super interesting to see Apple add a relative spatial relationship detecting capability to the iPhone, especially in light of the leaked existence of "starboard" AR glasses. The handset and glasses will know each other's location opening up a lot of neat interaction patterns (wave the phone) and augmentation of the phone display itself.
