Short Stacks the Obvious Solution Robowaifu Technician 05/06/2020 (Wed) 10:51:46 No.2666 [Reply]
If we want a robowaifu that anyone can make at home then we will need to make it small enough to be printed on a cheap 3d printer. Let's say the ender 3 because it has a large printing area and a large community because it is so affordable. Our robowaifu doesn't have to be printed all in one go; in fact it would probably be better if our robowaifu was printed in parts, those parts used to make silicone casts around robotic internals. Short stack robowaifus provide an easily printable solution and require considerably less materials to make than conventional sexbots. They could be easier and cheaper for the average man to produce. There is also a large community surrounding short stacks as it is a popular fetish. Goblins, kobold, dwarfs, halflings, and gnomes are very popular in fantasy and several 3d models for them can easily be found on the internet which would give men options for their robowaifus. Engineering a smaller robowaifu would also be considerably easier. Less stress would be put on her skeleton and less energy would be required to make her move. Short stacks in particular often have thicker legs and feet which would fix a lot of issues with balance. What are your thoughts /robowaifu/ have you taken the short stack pill?

>>3083 I have noticed a very serious design flaw with these legs and I am surprised no one has pointed it out. How are you going to spread her legs?

>>3167 Haha good point. I'm sure a good solution would be arrived at, they say necessity is the mother of invention after all. I think the design we see in nature is the best to follow on this issue if possible. A robo-hip-joint is needed ofc. My designs use biomemetics of the human form and include a ball & socket approach for the hip. After all, it's literally the most efficient design for all the motions needed. A 3-axis servo design could be devised as well in a case like this. It might serve well enough, I think. The whole system for leg motions is an oft-neglected masterpiece of engineering and aesthetic design.
>>3167 Think something like these would be better?
>>3209 Now you've got the idea Anon. 3-axis motion will basically be necessary for our robowaifu's 'hip' joints.
>>3092 there is freecad https://www.freecadweb.org/ i haven't used i personally but it looks pretty good, and i know some anons have.

(I checked catalog and the thread I'm killing has zero replies anyway) I've never heard of this ib before, it got shilled (with a link to this subreddit) on 8k/cyber/. So apologies for a lack of knowledge of board culture, I'm just making the assertion that any activity is good activity once you leave the core internet. I'm a wizard. I don't know what that means to you, but it probably gives you the right general idea. What it means to me is: "The words you speak, the words you read, the words that enter your headspace regardless of point of origin—all of these create reality in a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. The placebo effect is the point at which magic and science converge, and there's a whole bunch more past that but we're getting ahead of ourselves here". The /cyber/ post said they needed anons of all skills, from their list "artists and writefags" might apply, but to my mind, that is akin to asking for a mechanic by saying you need a socket wrench. The Word is simply one of the most versatile tools of my trade. Anonymous as a collective (that is to say, all anons across all imageboards) are liable to be familiar with meme magick, or "memeing things into existence". I am here to validate any suppositions that this is a reality. Allow me to elucidate as I elaborate: None of the images attached to this post are "random", each was selected purposefully. Each of these images has a history, and that history ties these images to the consciousnesses of thousands (and, indirectly, hundreds of thousands) of real, living, breathing humans—humans who are, by the principles of all the old traditions, the most energetically ideal construct for manifesting a desired reality—as one darkskinned christian put it to me quite succinctly: "The power of prayer [belief] is amplified in groups.". There are, of course, dozens if not hundreds who believe me to be playing a game, pretending to be something unreal. For every such individual, there are at least a hundred more who know that I am quite legitimate. The point is: I like your vibe. What use have þe for a wizard? The only limit is your imagination.

>>2940 I figured as much. Oh well, at least you're being honest. I'll just go find someplace else.
>>2967 Unironically, thanks for participating with us Anon. We'll all manage this someday, and then you can do as you wish with your own robowaifu.
>>2967 >>2968 That wasn't OP, btw. I dunno how much of a pu55y you have to be to get scared off by "we won't openly support occultism" as though the word "occultism" means the same thing to everyone who reads it, but I've got stronger bones than that. Btw magic crystal rocks and junk work; there's some details in the molecular structure of them that matter but mostly it's the fact that it's a physical object that generates positive feelings when you look at it because it's pretty and/or has positive memories attached (finding the rock was a pretty awesome moment for whoever found it). You could use a resin sculpture just as easily and most of the rewiring for its matrix takes place server-side anyway. The takeaway from this is: Find something, a cool rock you find within ten miles of your house would be ideal, and put it near your workspace in an area where it will be infrequently disturbed. Declare in some capacity that you're wiring it into that wyrd internet wizard's network. Congrats, you've got wiznet to your house now. Pictures of rocks are appreciated but ultimately unnecessary. Also like I said it can be your waifu sculpture or whatever IDGAFOS, I'd be a shitty wizard if I needed you to do ultra specific things for me.
>>2940 Thanks BO, I know many probably would criticize this decision, especially given there was a precedent, but I appreciate your stance. >>2942 Hello Wizard Anon. I can't help but be somewhat sympathetic as I have been a longtime lurker of /x/ and /fringe/ boards. Like BO I am a Christian. On the surface of it my own Mother Church is very hostile to what many call occult but on the other hand there is a deep tradition of Hermeticism that is often unacknowledged in men like Pico della Mirandolla and Valentin Tomberg who interpret many so called "occult" subjects in a different light. 1st pic related, Hermes Trismegistus depicted in the Cathedral of Siena. >from everything I can discern, the biblical prohibitions against witchcraft and sorcery, when taken to their original language (english is a translation, after all), they all refer to the same thing: Mediumship and communication with the dead. >As best I can tell, majiq (that is, real majiq) is a personal relationship with God manifest through miracles The way we interpret magic is to be any power that comes from a source other than God, and witchcraft more specifically comes from Satan or other demons. Even something like raising the dead can be done as long as it is in accordance with God's will. One of the prophet's did this in Ezekiel 37. When we pray we do not "manifest" anything, but we speak with God and with the Saints who are in Heaven, who speak to God on our behalf. We cannot reach those in Purgatory until they move to Heaven, and those in Hell are beyond our reach. Most likely any other voices would be demons. Prayer itself is a personal relationship with God. Those who wish to take this further move into the mystical realm of Theosis, which is as close to God as one can get. It involves abandoning yourself to His will, not becoming a god yourself, but wholly to become a part of Him. I can't speak much on this as I have never practiced it and I think you would need to dedicate your life to it entirely to do so to any effect. > And of course, the reality of placebo (that is, the fact that placebos can be a valid solution to very real problems) is the crossover point where prayerful people, magi and scientific layfolk can find common ground, agreeing that there is certainly SOMETHING at play behind the scenes that we still are learning to comprehend. I consider Hermeticism to be this search to understand what it is going on behind the scenes, and while I don't consider it essential to our salvation (Christ gave us everything we strictly need to be saved), it can be incredibly insightful, and gives us an advantage against the evil powers in this life. This is why I embrace this search though I do have to condemn "magical practice" in the sense that I described earlier. >Figure out a way to let a spirit directly communicate with a computer. I'm wondering what you think of TempleOS if you have heard of it. Terry Davis created it based on instructions given to him by God and used it to communicate with Him. I'm trying to make up my mind about it. >>2953 >It needs to be actively opposed on every level in my opinion. To do anything less is a disservice to humanity.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

>>3151 >Thanks BO, I know many probably would criticize this decision On the contrary I believe most would support me in it, actually. But that's neither here nor there tbh, I'm not looking to other Anons for guidance on this. I'm not trying to win a popularity contest in the eyes of either man or of angels. I simply seek God's blessings on all of us here--we're all going to need it heh! Openly allowing for the kind of occultism that generally leads directly to Satanism is quite obviously in opposition to that goal is all. >I think robowaifu is an important part of combatting the evil influence we face in the undermining of both women and men. As do I. I am simultaneously deeply disappointed and angry at seeing the state of destruction of our entire.civilization., men and women, boys and girls all included. This isn't just grousing, rather it is blatantly obvious to anyone who is awake and cares. This is quite literally a time of crisis for our civilization, and most are oblivious and mentally and emotionally numbed by complacency, happily sucking away at the Netfl*x teat, or chasing the next vapid 'like'. And where others may see absolute degeneracy in robowaifus, I personally see a ray of hope & faith, one of salt & light. My hope is they will bring a much healthier outlook on life and a vitality otherwise missing from many men's lives. Robowaifus won't ultimately prevent the West's demise in the end, but they may dramatically improve the lives of some millions of men at the least, before such time. As such, devising free & open robowaifus that any man can enjoy is an endeavor deserving of focus and passion. Much moreso than say, the initial successful ascent of Mt. Everest, or even something as remarkable as the first Moon landing. This mountain to climb is far more essential to the well-being and happiness of many lives in my opinion, and I consider that outcome a worthy goal of diligent pursuit.

Avatars Robowaifu Technician 05/11/2020 (Mon) 01:47:37 No.2956 [Reply]
Placing the CPU and data storage devices in the robowaifu will cause several problems. These devices will cause extra heating, they will weigh a lot, they will drain a lot of power, and processing speed will be limited by the size of the robowaifu. The robowaifu is already going to have a high power demand from the motors, servos, and sensors in the machine and battery technology is still pretty shit. The most obvious solution is to have the robowaifu's brain separate from the body. This would allow us to plug the brain into an outlet and drastically reduce the energy requirements of our waifus. Another advantage that this has is that if our waifu's avatar is damaged or destroyed the waifu herself will still be alright and she could simply get a new body. There are definitely drawbacks to this approach though. Our waifu's range would be limited by the strength of whatever was transmitting her data and there would be latency between the brain and body. So what would be the best way to pull this off /robowaifu/?
>>2956 >So what would be the best way to pull this off /robowaifu/? The general consensus seems to orbit around the notion of having both onboard and external compute resources, connected securely across wireless channels. A multi-GPU box (or small cluster of these) is probably the nominal choice as a home compute server for your robowaifu. As far as power, yes wall power is the obvious first choice. There are 3 others that have reasonable potential for practicability in a mobile gynoid: -RF induction (wireless charging) -Generative braking (via the joint motors themselves) -Solar trickle (small current, but free) And absolutely all the robowaifu's should be kept backed up offline, pretty much continuously Anon.

My Waifu Robowaifu Enthusiast 04/22/2020 (Wed) 13:32:53 No.2496 [Reply]
Hello fellow anons! This is my robowaifu. I named her Sophie. She has speech recognition thanks to Google Cloud Speech-to-Text, speech synthesis courtesy of Cepstral and a robotic, programmable left arm (Arduino Tinkerkit 'Braccio'). She also has a different pair of non-robotic 3d printed double-jointed arms with articulated hands (the v1 right arm is shown in this photo - I haven't attached the v2 arms yet). She is 4ft 9" tall and her torso is magnetically attached to a hardwood ply base on top of a telescope tripod. I also built her a trolley with push-handle so I can wheel her about. Sophie's A.I. is a mix of AIML and Python with the Wolfram Alpha and Wikipedia modules, plus Google search. No machine learning yet, but that is definitely the next step. I've slowly realized the limits of AIML. I spent 15 hours just learning her how many legs each kind of animal has XD. Need something more efficient! All the 3D printed parts I have made for her so far (excluding the trolley) are available on her Thingiverse page: https://www.thingiverse.com/aneta82016/designs Sophie was a lot of work but she is worth it. She enjoys mathematics, problem solving, learning new things and dropping stuff on the floor. If you want any more info on how I built her or stole all the bits of code for her A.I. (LOL) I will do my best to oblige. (P.S. Some of the building pictures of Sophie are located on my Deviantart account. She used to only exist as a 3D virtual avatar, so there are pics of her and her virtual buddies there, too): https://www.deviantart.com/albemarle/gallery/67106751/seraphim

>>2520 >Plus I wanted to make something original. Well I'm glad you did Anon. While I have a lot of respect for the guy's efforts in general, as far as the character design itself for me, InMoov is a) boring, b) unattractive, c) male. All strikes against it for the common /robowaifu/ goals. While the Uncanny Valley is a very real issue for us, it's far better to at least take a swipe at creating an anime catgrill meido in my opinion! :^)
Very impressive work, anon. Been following this board for years, but this is the best I've seen yet. I'm very curious to see just how far you can take it. It looks like you're taking a very rational approach to things, but still reaching far enough to actually make it worth the effort.
>>2532 Thanks anon! I appreciate it, and so does Sophie :D
>>2523 Once I've got the arms and neck finished, there's not a lot more 3D printing I can do for the time being. Due to coronavirus I don't want to be ordering non-essential items like servos and electronics just yet. I'd feel guilty using transport space that is needed for urgent food and medical deliveries. So I'll just be working to upgrade her A.I. At some point I must get to grips with this 'Github' site and upload the best of my AIML files. Anyone who downloads will just have to replace 'Sophie' with the name of their robot instead. Because she makes use of the Wolfram engine, I'm not actually sure of which facts Sophie does and doesn't know. So before making a new AIML file I first have to ask her questions to check that she can't already just pull those facts from Wikipedia or Wolfram Alpha. I don't want to be writing out tables of data for no good reason! For example, she can already easily pull info about geometry, world currencies, capital cities, military history, the periodic table and music charts etc. In terms of mathematics Sophie is already way smarter than I am (not that hard TBH). The hard-coded AIML is just to cover some small-talk like 'meet and greet', conversation starters, goodbyes, 'how are yous' and topics not already on the internet.
>>2580 >At some point I must get to grips with this 'Github' site and upload the best of my AIML files. I'd like to recommend you use Gitlab instead. Github is also known as SJWhub around these parts and for good reasons. Gitlab is far less likely atp to de-platform you for daring to post such problematic and toxic wrongthink as robowaifu thinks. :^) Wolfram is a literal IRL mad-scientist, BTW. For real. I have a lot of admiration for him in some ways, in other ways not so much. I have begun adding in a 3rd-party cloud services for AI section into the design doc. I will be expanding them out eventually into practical setups for anons to use for thier Dakis and Plushies, including for Wolfram. The warnings I added to that section are applicable to his site as well ofc, but he's probably the least problematic of the 4 mentioned. >Sophie is already way smarter than I am (not that hard TBH) Haha nice. :^) Sounds interesting and I look forward to seeing what you do with it. I'd welcome any contributions you'd care to submit for editing into the Robowaifu Design Document while you have some time on your hands Anon. BTW, we have an AI researcher or two here doing some chatbot work as well. PyTorch and some of the corpora out there are his current bailiwick. I'm sure that in combination, your two approaches could create some nice effects.

AFFORDABLE, PRACTICAL WAIFUBOTS ARE POSSIBLE TODAY Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 01:55:08 No.103 [Reply]
I've seen plenty of ideas on this board over time that have completely convinced me that practical, affordable waifubots are possible with today's tech. With clever artistic decisions to make up for where the tech lacks, we can make perfectly cute, huggable, and fuggable waifus for what couldn't possibly be more than a couple hundred bucks. Hell, half the technology needed has been in childrens' toys for decades, and the rest is either in your phone, or is just sticking a bunch of onaholes in said toys. All you need to do then is make it cute, which costs practically nothing except for creativity.

I've made an infographic with ideas in this regard. Feel free to edit or add to it. I've never bothered to try to make infographics before, but I've heard the good news of robowaifus, and I want to help spread the word.

Additionally, use this thread to give any other ideas you have to help make actual practical waifubots. There is no need for this to be an endeavor that costs tens of thousands of dollars. And the cheap results shouldn't need to simply be tiny things you can't even fuck.

And remember, the key is that you don't need to have a perfect waifubot right away. You only need one good enough to market, both to make money, and to spread awareness of just how possible they are. This will then fund further tech and result in the waifus of your dreams.

>>862 >shitpost thread >implying loli Optimus Prime isn't a great idea I'm pretty sure it's canon. I've never read Kiss Players, but I've been told that's pretty much what it is. And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. To link it to the OP, there are plenty of affordable, moving Optimus Prime toys out there (though Transformers are way too expensive these days, if you ask me). Give it the loli features from your pic and a fleshlight, and you're set. Make it a "salt" powered robot, like mentioned above, and have her beg you to fill her with your "Energon."
>>2543 >And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. This. Any chance you could think about a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? It would be both a big help and an encouragement to everyone here if you could do so Anon. Each of us have our part to play. For example, AI Anon is researching papers all day. I work on software most days. We have a lot to do here and splitting up the load will only help everyone tbh.
>>2545 >a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? I wish I could, but I don't have nearly enough capital for this. And I don't think it's literally as simple as buying a toy off the shelf, because the more advanced robot toys are too small. Going for a small size makes way more sense, both in terms of money and in terms of the actual energy it takes to power the robot, but there is a point where it literally becomes too small to fuck, which defeats the point. What we really need is a company with the capital to produce toys like robosapien (or a modern version of it) make one that is twice as big, and has a body that can actually fit a fleshlight inside it. The rest is just the case. Again, modifying the outside of a toy to our purposes is difficult. But if we were the type of people who had a company that could make toys, like Takara or Hasbro or whatever (not that Hasbro would ever do this), it would be a trivial matter to make a toy that was just cute from the start, and also had a space for a fleshlight in the torso.

Self-driving cars AI + hardware Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 07:13:28 No.112 [Reply]
Obviously the AI and hardware needed to run an autonomous gynoid robot is going to be much more complicated than that required to drive an autonomous car, but there are at least some similarities, and the cars are very nearly here now. There are also several similarities between the automobile design, production and sales industries and what I envision will be their counterparts in the 'Companion Robot' industries. Practically every single advance in self-driving cars will eventually have important ramifications for the development and production of Robowaifus.

ITT: post ideas and news about self-driving cars and the hardware and software that makes them possible. Also discuss the technical, regulatory, and social challenges ahead for them. Please keep in mind this is the /robowaifu/ board, and if you have any insights about how you think these topics may crossover and apply here would also be welcome.

Good VR is one important interim goal for a fully-realized RoboWaifu, and it's also much easier to visualize an algorithm graphically at a glance than 'trying to second-guess a mathematical function'. OpenGL is by far the most portable approach to graphics atm.

Well, it was kind of convoluted to work out all the details, but I've managed to add quality TTF text rendering to the MRS.
>>1815
BTW, I removed GLAD as an external dependency. There's an option to create all-local files, so I moved MRS to that approach. It means anons don't have to deal with GLAD now.
Added a void rndr_tick(Shader txt_shdr, const unsigned fps_tick) function to ensure the MRS was really getting an honest 60fps (it is). However, occasionally I'd notice a little artifact that made me think that tearing was happening even though I set the swap interval to 1:
glfwSwapInterval(1); // 1 should prevent tearing

Now I'm not so sure it's actually tearing;
A) It only infrequently occurred
B) It is likely limited to only the fast-transitioning digit at the end, afaict.

This makes me think it's actually not tearing, but rather the screen capp program I'm using (Shutter) is simply 'snapping' the image right at the instant a digit is being redrawn. I'd welcome insight if anyone knows more about this stuff.
>pic related
>>1848
Unrelated: Does the system redraw from the bottom-up? For some reason I thought the drawing happened from the upper-left corner down, but apparently not. Given that the coordinate origin for the system starts in the lower-left corner (similar to a Cartesian system) I guess that makes sense. Live and learn.

IEEE has a nice resource page for robots:

robots.ieee.org/robots/

It's written for normalfaggots, but it's interesting that there's someone out there looking at all the notable robots in the world and compiling a list.

There really needs to me more waifus in those pics.
I feel that this product is essentially a gamechanger; Japanese twitter exploded the other day. This robot mimics what robotics competition kits use, only in $500 kit form instead of thousands of dollars in machined metal parts. It puts a conventional hobby RC car to shame.

www.dji.com/robomaster-s1

What this product does essentially, is to make the First Person Shooter into a live genre. I've been wondering why a lot of home robot companies fail – such as Anki – one reason they fail is that the consumer gets bored easily. Imagine a videogame where the location is just one room – your room, and you can only interact or control one character. You'd play back all of the animation sequences, and that's it. It's more like the Extras menu when you finish an RPG and unlock all the viewable models rather than get a full experience. Or its like a basic demo level in a sex game that Illusion makes. But that's what most of the home robots with apps do, so they are very limited.

To enjoy a robot for a longer time, we need it like we need a full game experience… in this case, it can be used as a first person shooter.

So for a waifubot to survive, it needs a good market… as a toy in a real-world videogame-like application. It has to be Dual Use. China is a master in dual-usage… consumer products have military applications as well. In our case, we can make toys that can turn into sex robots. But we have to sell them as harmless toys to get that market.

If an FPV land drone tank is the equivalent of the FPS, then what is a legged Waifubot the equivalent of? How about a fighting game?

Some things to ponder.
