Thread of stuff I wanna buy. Will "like" my own toot if I get it.

1. BOOX Mira USB-C display. I have a little Boox e-reader and have been liking it for reading manga on the go. I'm currently using an LCD USB-C monitor so the form factor works great. I think this would be useful for improving battery usage + working outside.

2. Nreal Air display. I tried a shittier version of this in the past (Mad Gaze) and it was almost good enough for typical use. I think this thing will be a good companion for when I'm on the plane and want to do some productivity stuff or maybe walking around. Might also be useful once there are drivers for this thing and I can use @stardustxr with it.

3. Probably instead of the Nreal Air I'll get the since the app is installable in Canada and I like the look more. :P

Also seems about as compatible with my Steam Deck.

4. Since I'm really liking my Rokid Max, I might get their Rokid Station device which they're marketing as an Android TV for AR headsets. I could probably get termux on this thing at least.

5. Kinda want to add EEGs to my loadout. Maybe for controlling a cursor in XR? Biggest question is whether there are SDKs that work on Linux.

6. A cool robot arm that can act as a 3d printer, laser engraver, or pen plotter.

@stardustxr TBH I don't think I need it for my main use cases right now. I thinm 3dof for viewing a static "sphere" around my head will suffice for mobile use cases.

I think for 6dof I'd want to use either VR or a passthrough AR thing like the Lynx

@mauve btw this kinda blew my mind when you posted, i had no idea this product segment existed at all :~

@cblgh it's fun! I' actually wearing my Rokid Max now so I can do some work on my steam deck in the park.

@mauve I'd check out Brainflow ( )
They have support for a range of hardware with APIs in a ton of languages.

@wrstscrnnm6 Oh wow that's very useful thank you. Is this something you've used for your own projects already?

@mauve Only dabbled a little in personal projects, but I did some work for OpenBCI a while back and their SDK is built on top of Brainflow.

@mauve @stardustxr I feel like they should give up on the "theyre glasses" thing. It's like textured vegetable protien is better than "fake meat" - it's not a vegetable pretending to not be a vegetable (badly).
play to your strengths?

i kinda like the look of Fpv flight goggles

i want to feel like a mech warrior pilot?

@mixmix @stardustxr Yeah! I actually liked the design of the rokid glasses before the Max which looked like a cylon visor of sorts. I thing lobger term I'm going to ditch the see through glasses form factor and go witg something like a bigscreen vr headsrt and a 360 camera on a tripod to get a third persib view

@mauve Hey I have a boox ultra 10 inch and have been using termux on it. I ssh into a more powerful computer, but love it. You might want to try that with your reader. It might actually be better than the full display, but I've not tried that as they are expensive that way.
