Makes it work though.
A few things going on with this one that might not be obvious.
I'm controlling it with a headset that tracks my head and eye movement. It also has cameras in the eyeballs, streaming a stereo feed back to the headset. Where I look, it looks.
Another stewart platform for the mount - they're great for getting fluid and responsive motion out of cheap servos.
The link you just clicked on leads to a video on PeerTube, on a server called framatube.org.
BUT... if you copy and paste the same address of the video into the search box in Mastodon, and search for that link within Mastodon, it will appear to you as a Mastodon post
You'll then be able to watch it (of course), but also you'll be able to comment on the video by replying to the post within Mastodon, like the video by favouriting it, and follow its creator by following the account that posted it.
This is the Fediverse in action, totally different services interacting through a common open standard.
It can be hard to get your head round this at first, but it's incredibly useful and once you get used to it simply how things should be.
You don't need to use link shorteners on Mastodon. All links count as 23 characters no matter how long they really are.
Also, links on Mastodon stay in the form you wrote them. This is much better for privacy than Twitter.
Twitter quietly changes all posted links to go via Twitter's domain t.co so they can track people. This doesn't happen on Mastodon or the Fediverse.
You can see this hidden conversion in Twitter by hovering your mouse over a link there, the link appears to show a normal address but Firefox and other browsers will indicate the true t.co address in the bottom left corner of the screen. If you try this same check on Mastodon or the Fediverse, you will see your links stay just as you wrote them.
Average at best.
Not the artist. Web developer. If something is broken, it's probably my fault.
