/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

LynxChan updated to 2.5.7, let me know whether there are any issues (admin at j dot w).


Reports of my death have been greatly overestimiste.

Still trying to get done with some IRL work, but should be able to update some stuff soon.

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.

The show was garbage.
>>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.

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.

Height; 15cm

I'm making it in as natural looking way as I can, this means a bone structure and a similar layout of the electronics and components as with a living humanoid

This is a prototype version that I'm working on, I might change things later and make modifications or adjustments to the design or components

Teflon is explicitly designed to stay slippery. You might have better success using it over plastic insulation.

>MSP430
ah got it. i plan to eventually repopulate the threads here, including the electronics learning class one.

>Fab lab
cool. i've never been to one yet tbh. expensive?

>Also might be kinda tricky to 3d draw the parts properly but I might do that later actually
There's the Fusion 360 product anon, and Blender too ofc, whenever you feel inclined to design a reproducible system others can create as well.

Good luck.

This insulation actually works surprisingly well like the video shows >>1004

Booking at a specific time probably costs, but I'm not sure how much and its kinda irrelevant for me right now anyway since I don't have money to spare
But it used to have open hours here for the public on specific days, I'm not sure if they have those open days since the schedule doesn't show it, but it still reads on the front page that they do, I'll have to check on that better later

I actually happened to get lucky the other day and got a bunch of 3d printing filament for free

Funnily when I started out making models for 3d printing I used sketchup

Fusion360 can get as detailed as they come. The (((Autodesk))) and (((cloud))) lock-in aren't to my tastes however. I think I'll stick with Ton & Blender.

Important things about building living robots Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 05:38:28 No.19 [Reply]
Robots in our price range would have to be made of cheap, but sturdy materials.

3D printed nylon is a good material, as it is sturdy, doesn't shatter like PLA, and is tolerant of many temperatures. Aluminum pieces like those in a VEX set are good for things like the thoracic vertebrae, or the femurs.

AI is also not born perfect. It is created like a child. You must raise it to be social. To accommodate this, an infant model must be built for the robot to learn basic social skills, movement, etc. Even MLAATR itself has shown this, though I imagine a head on a small body with simple legs or wheels would suffice. You could simply remove the head and place it onto the older body as a birthday gift for it.

I also have to point out something that might disappoint, do not read this spoiler if your dreams of a robot wife are delicate. You cannot fuck your robowaifu unless it's an already-existing girl's consciousness stuck into the robot. Making your own waifu's mind is like father and child incest.
5 posts and 2 images omitted.
Well, it’s true you have to train AI like a child, I think there are some things worth noting though.
A human has to be raised because it’s only born with genetic memory, such as drink milk, cry when hungry, all that stuff. It has no inherent understanding of society, languages, survival, or scientific knowledge.
Basically humans are a package you can drop anywhere and it will (hopefully) learn how to adapt to its surroundings.
I think robots can be a bit more robust than that. Its “genetic” memory can include encyclopedias of knowledge, translators of every language, scientific and mathematical calculators. Basically all that’s left to learn is how to adapt to its surroundings and its local society.
If you don’t want your robot roaming around town learning how people interact with each other, you’re gonna need to program in a personalty. At the very least its going to have to learn to live with you, hopefully it will enjoy that.
>>622
The problem with that is that commercially available programs can only self-teach in one direction. They can become practically human in their speech patters, and can then also learn to walk, but they can't connect the word "walk" to the action of moving their legs to go places. They can't even connect something as simple as moving to the word "moving".
That's why it's kind of silly to describe your creation as a child, even as it gets fully-taught, it will still have less learning power and less self-awareness than an insect. It's also silly because the thing already exists purely to solve your problems, and is given no time to express consent in this, so why limit yourself to taking total advantage of it in only some ways?
>>623
We simply don't program them to be able to learn multiple things. The problem is that we restrict their learning network. What needs to be done is simply giving pre-programmed groundwork, such as feeding, talking, etc. The rest of the programming comes from learning and what not. Also, we're eventually going to have to ascend to robotic bodies and what not, and if our only robots are preprogrammed sexbots, we are fucked.
>>19
I'm currently working on mine. If I could, I'd mass produce these and make a pretty penny. Good idea or no?

Pic related. Shit game, but selling these is a good idea.
>>625
Sure. You just gotta make sure your consumers know your robots are to be raised with as much discipline as a child. Basically like those robot dogs, but they actually grow up. If you are truly successful, you might have robots buy their own kind. Or cause a revolution or something, but by the time that happens, I'm sure you'll find a way to compromise that.

Entry Level Waifu Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 08:02:15 No.245 [Reply]
So I've been lurking here for a little while. I figured it's finally time I made a thred so I have a place to share my ideas about a project I want to build. Robowaifus has been a dream of mind for a good while, i'm glad I stumbled across this place.

So with this project I want to focus on something that is viable now, with todays tech. And it has to be affordable, under $1k. I don't have 10k to drop on Real doll robot, or even 2k for a sex doll. This also has to be something an average anon like me can piece together. I'm not an engineer or a programmer.

So my fist version of this won't be including any robotics. The goal will be to put a computer inside a doll, with a voice interface and chatbot AI. As well as a battery pack so it's portable. I'm think by really focusing on the right elements, I can build an effective waifu.

I think AI is vital to robowaifus. More vital than the robotics. That's what's gonna make this whole thing a viable option. Having something you can connect with. I want to start exploring that.

That beings aid, I think from is really important too. There's no need to have an AI voice in a plain speaker like Amazon and Google are offering. We can easily do better than that. And without the botnet and privacy concerns.

I vastly prefer 2D over 3DPD. I also think it's a great way to sidestep the uncanny valley. It's herd to get a 3D version of a 2D character that looks right. One of the best I've seen are the 1/3 scale vinyl dolls like the Dollfie Dream. Danny Choo seemed like he was on the path to create a robowaifu version of these dolls with his Smart Doll, but the version he eventually released is non robotic. It does however have a mostly hollow torso that could be filled with electronics. I think the Smart Doll is a great base for a project like this, and they are highly customizable too.

Alright that's enough to start, I'll be going into more detail in future posts.

>>245
Hey anon, glad to see your project thread, welcome. Seems like you have good insight on costs. This stuff will be expensive, one way or another.

I also like the idea that good AI is a vital initial phase for your project. Sad to say, from my perspective at least, it's also the most difficult problem (in the long list of problems) to solve when inventing good robowaifus. But I think with everybody pitching in ideas, then some geniuses among us might pull of a breakthrough or two. We'll see. But as you said, we certainly do not want botnets infesting our beloved robowaifus.

And yea it's kind of a theme here "Waifubots, not slutbots", crude as it is. Why some big corporations are not already making cute waifubots is quite beyond me tbh. The pent-up demand is very plainly a huge one.

Obviously full-sized will be the most desirable, but I think for the first several years scale models are the only practical approach while keeping the costs relatively modest. Danny Choo's injection-molding line when it's in full swing will probably be a good model to look at for a BJD approach.

There's lots of challenges ahead. Good luck to us all anon.
>>454
Yeah it seems like the madman was actually gonna do it for a while, create robo waifus. They would have been expensive though and it would have been an even more niche product. Pandering to normalfags is probably the better business decision.

>>455
I see the goal of waifubots as simulating relationships and companionship. And it's not that i'm some puritan who's against the idea of sexbots, simulating sex has already been solved. Sex robots for both mean and women already exist, and have for years. Onaholes can be bought online for under $20, you can do VR on your cellphone. The technology is already here and readily available. When people say sexbot, they are usually talking about a full robotic humanoid that's also capable of having sex. That's like calling a computer a porn machine.
>>245
I know people want one that can move around and stuff, but wouldn't it be easier to focus on the AI and the mechanics first before making it fully portable? I know back when this board was on 8chan, there were a few on-going projects that just halted because of the magnitude of what they were trying to do. It would be nice to see someone's project come through without getting burned out or bogged-down.
>>504
>but wouldn't it be easier to focus on the AI and the mechanics first before making it fully portable?
Not that anon, but I agree with you anon. The challenge of creating an inexpensive bipedal robowaifu is challenging atm to a high degree imo. This is why the Visual Waifu thread was started, to enable forward progress in the AI and simulation arenas simultaneously with the mechanical systems.

>the magnitude of the problem
The laws of nature don't care how good one's intentions are, heh. You either satisfy the constraints of real physics or you fail. Simple as that. So yea, I think a lot of younger anons go into this over-enthusiastically w/o really understanding, as you indicated, the magnitude of the problem.

That opens up whole other areas of discussion about the correct approaches to this whole topic of DIY Robot Wives. I'd be happy to go there if you're up for it anon.

Hey, if this were easy, everyone would be doing it!

Why not build a waifu with a rudimentary AI and give her the objective to help you build a better waifu with better AI and repeat the process until you get one that is perfect?

In the far future, I can imagine billions of robot catgirls conquering the galaxy, 3D printing their sisters into existence. The implications are insane… imagine if they have artificial wombs installed, they can terraform the entire solar system for us.

But right now I'm just thinking of a Minimum Viable Product. With my current abilities that means is no better than a fancy Tickle Me Elmo, except one that arches her back, sticks her butt out, and goes Nyaa every 10 seconds. Just think of NPCs, they only speak two lines but it's good enough for me to find them attractive.
Pretty simple once you reach human-tier levels of dexterity and motion planning. Then you simply employ excess robowaifus in your robowaifu factory as sweatshop slave labor. There you go, self-replicating waifubots.

Perhaps you can go from nanobots to humanoids through hyper-evolution. It's not any less fictional I suppose.

Downloadable AI for robots? Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 07:59:54 No.244 [Reply]
When I say AI, I mean actual robots that learn how to use their own inputs and outputs, not just chatbots. Are there any downloadable AI programs? I'm the OP of the Drossel thread, and I'd like to see if there's any downloadable programs for this shit. Also, I'd like some tips for inserting mounts for servos and shit inside the Drossel model.

There's shit-tier AI that comes embedded in boards such as Sparkfun Edge (tensorflow voice recognition) and ESP-EYE (face recognition), pretty limited but otherwise offline after firmware updates. I have those boards but haven't started using them yet.
Tensorflow might be your best bet. Deep learning “AI”, which is really just fancy statistics, is the current meme that lets robots learn about their bodies.

Honestly I don’t know how possible any of this is without citing some Ph.D research papers.
