The set is more cohesive with the different camera angle and the
explanation about your RTML app. I see you have a lot going on at the same

Good to see that you have tuned the system so there are not audible
dropout and you can still get around the stage.

I can see this set going down well in the performance art festival
circuit. I think a crazy costume would add nicely to the "Performance Art"
aspect. It would be well received in Korea, Japan and Taiwan. You could
put together a promo video and reach out to some of the arts festivals
over there. Australia and NZ markets would also be a good place to look if
you wanted to perform farther afield.
