yeah, need to figure out a better way to do that.

Well, you can't just divide an angle by 2.

I think it's time to go back to the old way, this isn't really getting any better...

Old animation style, and cat ears, all the cool vtubers wear cat ears.




This motion sensor does 6 directions, so he can tilt now. The only problem is that it cuts out now and then and needs to reset.

Tried adding a 'funny filter' to Max, it's not so great. Also there's a glitch in the motion sensing, it sends bad data now and then, I'm leaving that in because it works well.

Argh, snapped the contacts on the keypad. Looking around online, you can only get 'stupidly cheap poor quality' or 'supidly expensive high quality'. There is no 'reasonably priced average quality'

If anyone is interested in Max's hardware, here it is...




An Arduino pro micro, number pad and a motion sensor stuck to some headphones.

Awesome!
All Amazon/eBay, no doubt. I really do miss having a Tandy I can pop into to rummage through little bits and pieces like that. (Not that I ever actually used anything, but.. still.. was nice to have it there, and be a nosey bugger!)

Yup, my main goal was 'way cheaper than a real setup as it was mostly just a joke'.

I've added a somewhat passable 'buffering' effect. So if for some reason it loses connection with my motion sensor, or more likely I have to reset it because it drifted too far, it will pause and show a loading circle...

Cool! He's looking pretty much fully functional, now.

That is incredibly realistic. It lacks emotion and would not be good for things like audio books or commercials, but for topical news or articles it would be ideal.

Good for a fake AI tv presenter perhaps

Amazing comparing this to like, '94 and the text to speech for DOS that shipped with my Sound Blaster card. That one was not bad and if you monkeyed with the spelling of things you could get it to pronounce things properly it otherwise could not pronounce. Then compare that to the text to speech on the TI-99/4A.

Blows away the text to speech functions of GoldWave which IIRC uses MS's stuff.

Fell down a youtube rabbit hole, now I really want to take Max back to the virtual assistant idea, but use peppers ghost to make him holographic.... But I just know I'm too lazy for that.

OK, dug out a raspberry pi 3+, going to figure out which OS is best to run on it. Everything seems too slow that I have tested so far. I have no idea how people use(d) these things for every day computing. After that, I'll dump the python code onto it and see what changes might need to be made.
