@carlosefr well, we did some pretty weird apps, too...

So I went and did a little experiment and used latent images to condition subsequent outputs, tweaking the prompts just a little, and running this on a consumer .

Imagine what can be done with proper hardware...

@rands here, have them all in your way:

@shana bring stickers!

@omgubuntu @gnome still lets you disable Bluetooth by mistake with a single click when all you have is a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, though.
