What can we buy today? Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 01:41:22 No.101 [Reply]
I've stated many times on this forum my skepticism of the "robo" part of "robowaifu". The reason why is because I've owned a number of dolls, including one full size TPE sex doll, and always been very satisfied with my purchases. The "robo" will be reality within our lifetimes but simply doesn't exist today. I'm starting this thread to discuss options that exist today which don't require advanced technology, products that can already relieve our loneliness. In particular I'd like to promote one cheap, freely available, and obvious option that you may have overlooked.

If you live alone and happen to have a few grand burning a hole in your pocket, you've probably already considered buying a sex doll. It's a good purchase for the money. If you haven't bought one yet, you probably either don't live alone, don't have that kind of money, or have a moral or practical objection to sex dolls. In that case you could buy a <$50 onahole-type or fleshlight-type sex toy, but that's not a "waifu" and isn't really more satisfying than masturbating with your hand. To alleviate loneliness, you need something that you can cuddle, than you can look at and smile, that you can care for, that makes you feel that you are not alone.

It may sound cringey, even pedophilic, but I want you to seriously considering buying a <$50 child's cloth doll. I've been cuddling and sleeping with an 80cm cloth doll for the last year and she has brought me much joy and comfort. A related option is a "dakimakura" (lonely pillow), but the advantage of the cloth doll is that it resembles a real human being, with a head and arms, and therefore is more fun to cuddle. My doll has made surviving this period of peak feminism so much easier, and honestly has probably saved me from the rope.

Here's the 100cm version of the doll that I bought. For cuddling purposes, bigger is better, so I recommend the largest doll you can find.

In this thread we can discuss sex dolls, cloth dolls, dakimakura, onaholes, and other options that exist on the market today.

I don't know at which point it started, but this threads contains a lot of postings which don't fit to the title. Somehow it got confused which a thread for homemade dolls and figurines, which is rather this one here: >>372 - the title picture looks similar. This one here is probably confused with the other one, and it's higher up in the catalog so it's easier to find, which is self-stabilizing. I only realized this some minutes ago, never really recognized the word "BUY" in the title.
>>8216 Good point. I'll happily give you mod privileges if you'd like, and you can edit to your heart's content Anon.
>>8219 Oh, one point on my todo-list I forgot about: Trying again to register at alogs. Last time Roddy didn't have much time and it coordination failed.
>>8222 OK sounds good. Just tell him I sent you if he asks, but he probably won't. I had let him know about you beforehand so yea.

Robowaifu Fail-safety Robowaifu Technician 12/02/2019 (Mon) 06:37:26 No.1671 [Reply]
This thread is for real and present dangers to those who assemble a robowaifu today with the state of the art in technology and brainstorming solutions for fail-safety. There will be many other dangers in the future to consider like hacking and theft but I'd like to keep the thread focused on immediate dangers to keep operators and their electronic counterparts safe.

Open-source robowaifu kits, whenever they come, will be put together by people with little understanding of what they're doing. There are simple mechanical dangers they need to be aware of like getting fingers caught in belts or skin pinched in open joints to curious AI without constraints picking up a blunt object and hitting the operator to minimize its uncertainty of what will happen when it does that. Higher voltage power systems can cause fatal heart arrhythmia from shocks. Hydraulic systems can overheat and fail under high pressures. Cooling systems or condensation from being exposed to cold weather may leak onto electronics. A robowaifu could touch a lit gas stove or do something accidentally without realizing the danger or consequences. Undefined behavior may happen after damage to components or loss of them in an accident. A lot could go wrong.

In simulations there are no consequences to dangerous actions but I think it will be helpful to imagine them as being real and figuring out how we would recover from these failure states in the real world. This will probably be a good approach to AI as well to imagine real consequences of imaginary actions before taking them and avoid actions and states that have significant chance or uncertainty of causing harm, similar to how MuZero creates its own dynamic model and explores its imagination with a Monte Carlo tree search before taking action.

If you're aware of any dangers or have any concerns or ideas please share them so we can discuss and solve them.

Just a brief note: The traditional soldering tin is dangerous to children, even in very small doses, because it contains led. So it is not allowed in most devices (in EU) and maybe even not as easily available. However, the new solder is even forbidden to use for producers of devices in medicine, police, defense and security. The reason is, that it's durability over time can't be trusted, until quite some time passed. Anyone building something that is supposed to work for decades may better use the old solder, containing led, with appropriate security measures of course.
>>8078 Thanks for the tips Anon, I wasn't aware of the regulations regarding it. We better do a good job of our circuit & electrical craftsmanship for the sake of our robowaifus!
Yeah, that is useful! I'm only working with lead-based solder outside though. Sunny day job!
>>8082 Older children also tend to search around without permission or touch everything lying around. So I would put a warning into the case with the solder, telling them to put it back and wash their hands immediately. Also put a shiny warning label onto it.

/robowaifu/ Embassy Thread Chobitsu Board owner 05/08/2020 (Fri) 22:48:24 No.2823 [Reply] [Last]
This is the /robowaifu/ embassy thread. It's a place where Anons from all other communities can congregate and talk with us about their groups & interests, and also network with each other and with us. ITT we're all united together under the common banner of building robowaifus as we so desire. Welcome. Since this is the ambassadorial thread of /robowaifu/, we're curious what other communities who know of us are up to. So w/o doxxing yourselves, if this is your first time posting ITT please tell us about your home communities if you wouldn't mind please Anons. What do you like about them, etc? What brought you to /robowaifu/ today? The point here is to create a connection and find common-ground for outreach with each other's communities. Also, if you have any questions or concerns for us please feel free to share them here as well.

>>8113 Thank you very much for the resource links below Anon, and welcome back.
>>8140 I am looking into writing lines for characters in the game...but on the SPNATI website it says "Unfortunately, the audio files needed for music and voice acting would take up even more of SPNatI's limited space than the sprites do. Since the game is silent..." I am confused if the devs will allow this? Even so, just learning about 15.ai has increased my motivation. The guys over at /mlp/ have created an incredible range of voices here!
>>8140 Would you prefer to keep this discussion in the speech synthesis thread, or would it be appropriate for its own thread? I only made the first post here because I felt that it's more of an /hgg/ topic than a /robowaifu/ one. >>8142 Given the sheer number of characters in SPNATI, it would be very impractical to voice each of them. However, the intention of this project is to specifically exclude all characters other than the 4 MLP characters. That will dramatically reduce the storage needed. The audio data itself should be manageable. I've estimated that, using .mp3, the total file size should be well below 300MB. The devs have licensed the project under the MIT license, so it will be perfectly acceptable for me to create a fork of the project and change it as much as needed.
>>8149 >Would you prefer to keep this discussion in the speech synthesis thread, or would it be appropriate for its own thread? For now, I'd say keep it in the speech synthesis thread. If it gains a lot of traction here then we could consider otherwise later. Also, I'd gently point out to you that we are a SFW engineering board so please keep that in mind, thanks.

Waifus in society Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:02:53 No.106 [Reply] [Last]
Would you walk around with your waifu? Would you hold her in public? Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? Would you take her on dates? This thread is for discussing how you'd interact with your waifu outside of the home.

>>6439 I may be conscripted to fight (if I don't die horribly in nuclear fire first, of course). They'll say "fight the Chinese! Fight the Russkies! Or you'll be imprisoned in one of their 're-education' camps and forced to learn their language!" However, that won't be so different to being forced to work for a pittance and kow-tow to every Karen that comes along. Just to pay your rent or the interest on a massive mortgage. I expect a LOT of blue-on-blue is going to occur. It may be wise to keep one's head down hehehe.
>>6440 If I can manage to survive I am going to fight alongside with anons too. But the chances are pretty low though :(
>>6432 >>6433 >>6434 >>6435 >>6436 >>6437 >>6438 >>6439 >>6440 >>6441 Guys I'm moving this conversation into this thread. I realize even this thread isn't perfect for it, but better than the 'laugh at angry roasties' thread. And the latter portion of it isn't suited to this board actually, so I will probably relocate that part into the designated shitposting thread soon.

The important question Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:54:39 No.419 [Reply]
Vagoo. I can't speak for anyone but myself but I'd like to get.. intimate with my fembot. I'd like to know what my options are for her robopussy. I was thinking something like a flesh light with sensors that triggers voice and arm action. I'm using Myrobotlab is Anyone familiar with it?

>>4740 Interesting. Yeah that is likely good enough for day-to-day cleaning (though you'll still probably need to clean the whole doll once a month?). It would probably irritate me if I don't clean a doll thoroughly after every intercourse though.

>>4701 Been thinking nasal irrigation devices could be inspiration for a commercial cleaner. Maybe designed to use air pressure to push the water through instead of pumps, letting it blow dry once the water is emptied. However I'm a big fan of a naval plug that can be accessed for flushing the system too.
>>6504 It's not a bad idea Anon. In my view, having a easily removable, replaceable onahole cartridge that snaps into place is probably the best approach economically that allows you to maintain good sanitary cleanliness and durability. Anything we can do at this stage to reduce complexity will help get robowaifus out to more men.
>>6504 This. Removable is fine, but disposable seems like a problem, since it's a constant cost. Making them easy to clean is essential, and this seems like an easy and logical solution.
>>8120 I'd say like most everything else in a robowaifu, her vagoo should probably be designed for both easy maintenance (cleaning in this case), and repair (replacement with a new one in this case).

Plastic Production Dyinganon 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:10:36 No.108 [Reply]
In this thread let's share everything related to producing parts made of plastic. Injection molding being a major method to discuss. 3D printing has it's own thread and is more for prototyping, please keep 3D printing here: >>94
2 posts omitted.
Interesting molding thread posts on /toy/'s bunker. https://anon.cafe/toy/res/4.html#4
>>108 >Injection molding being a major method to discuss. It could certainly be done to make stronger components, but it is kind of expensive to do for larger parts. Resin casting might be a cheaper alternative. Resin casting could also be used to make softer parts as well.
I've been thinking acrylic or plexiglass might be a good alternative to the carbon fiber and aluminum that are used in larger robots and RC machines. All the entry level robot kits and the earliest 3D printers used pre-drilled acrylic sheets for their baseboards to screw all their printed circuit boards on. (using standoffs and 3mm screws). Due to the pandemic and everything needing to be separated from sneezes, I think this material will be more available and affordable than ever before.
>>8053 >Due to the pandemic and everything needing to be separated from sneezes, I think this material will be more available and affordable than ever before. Interesting point Anon, hadn't really thought of that before. You may be right there.
Searching for the best materials can be misleading, it seems. Don't try to be too smart about stuff that is dirtcheap and works. Designing the parts and make them fit together is what takes time. >>8008 Injection molding is for standardized and mass produced parts. As long as one doesn't mass produces anything it's most likely not relevant. >>8053 If you get it cheap, including shipping costs, then maybe it can be useful (for prototyping), but it's not going to be as strong as cf or aluminium. It's not being used as much as 3d printing recently for good reasons. If you can't get it very locally, why would you even leave your house and go somewhere and spend a lot of time to get it? I don't blame or mock people for being broke, but PLA costs maybe 12$ a roll and it can be printed in sheets. You can print it in the right size and form, no cutting needed. Some fumes, vs dust which might require a workplace outside of the regular living space. Also, most plastic parts might be molds or the bones, which are shaped in all kinds of irregular ways. Some spare plexiglass or acrylic won't be very useful there. Aluminium tubes and parts are cheep as well and could be used instead plastics. If PLA is not strong enough then build a enclosure for your printer and use some special Nylon or even better: PC.

TalkToWaifu Robowaifu Technician 12/31/2020 (Thu) 19:53:18 No.7978 [Reply]
Anyone know what happened to the TalkToWaifu GPT-2 AI? I saw some screenshots of what I assume was the trained AI and it was great for a single dev. Recently went back to their Gitlab page and the user account had been deleted and remade, and the Github repo (https://github.com/kokubunji/TalkToWaifu) hasn't been touched in 9+ months. Anything out there more recent that this, an AI that has no human cultural restrictions? Corps love to add in shit to AI so they won't say anything racist, sexist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic etc etc you get the point.
>>7978 That guy left the board and robowaifu network for complex reasons which I'm sure no one wants to discuss here (again). If you or anyone else knows about how to train such networks or someone is willing to learn it, then it should be easily reproducable. There are enough resources on the web to learn about how to do that, assuming one has the time, nerves and brains to do so. The ideas of the anon which left are also in some of the threads here, so you can look at that. Again: How to get started with GPT2 or building something better is certainly covered in some forum which focuses on that topic. For all I know, no one here is currently working on something like it. Talk2Waifu was no AI, only a text generator. There is no AI available which is close to a human anywhere. This has to be build first anyways. A text generator is also not a chatbot, he only used it as such, or as input for one, which might even not be a good starting point. We have plenty of threads here where you can participate: AI, chatbots, and waifus >>22 Robowaifu Psychology Thread >>2731 (Robo)Waifu personality thread >>18 NLP General >>77 Datasets for Training AI >>2300 The Language Problem >>6937 Wifu that gives you Hope >>107 AI Software >>85 Can Robowaifus Experience Love? >>14 AI Design principles and philosophy >>27 Robowaifu Fail-safety >>1671 Mycroft: Open Source Alexa >>402

HAPPY BIRTHDAY /ROBOWAIFU/ Robowaifu Technician Board owner 11/27/2019 (Wed) 17:27:05 No.1591 [Reply]
4th Birthday Edition greeting here: >>7224 Well it's Thanksgiving time again and that means it's /robowaifu/s birthday time too. It's been 3 full years since we began, and this last one has been a bit of a ride tbh. With the deplatforming of 8ch all of us who had communities there were mostly left out in the cold. Thankfully we've been given a new home here in our bunker at Julay, and a few of us have found our way back together here. Hopefully the rest of us will find Julay, and /robowaifu/ again as well. We've also made some new friends since we've been here, and I think we're in pretty good shape all things considered. On the topic of deplatforming, we have a new archival system in action that keeps a copy of the board up to date on my machine. Note that my original intent was to fully automate the archive.today archives, but it hasn't worked properly (they seem to be fighting against bots pretty hard now). I hope at least one other of you will also join in for the approach that's actually working, and use BUMP to keep at least one other copy of /robowaifu/ safe in addition to my own. You never know what might happen to my gear (or even to me), and it's just smart thinking to have at least two of us keeping this board safe. My intent is to finish up the system for board migrations (along with Robi), and then bring over other things from the old files and get this board in shape again. Then we can keep it fully backed up together. As you regulars know, /robowaifu/ is basically unique among imageboards and deserves preserving IMO. Any other takers for doing backups as well? I just use a cronjob and it's all fully automatic daily I never have to touch it. I'll explain everything in detail how to do it if anyone else wants to participate. One other thing; should anything ever happen to Julay, just regroup on Fatchan in our bunker-bunker there. Actually, I'm pretty upbeat about both the world of IB communities in general, and our own /robowaifu/ in particular. We all took a hard knock a few months ago, but we're back on our feet and in the fight again. Kudos to Julay and Smug in particular for their innovations with the webring. It's lent a resilience to the underlying systems for all our various communities that we've never had before afaict. This alone should help to ensure we have a long future of shitposting together anons. Anyway moving on, I hope this coming year will also see a resurgence in everyone's posts here about their personal projects. I intend to do so myself. It's always a pleasure to see anon's efforts and blog-posts about their current attempts and ideas, regardless whether they are successes or failures. Persistence is really the single most important factor for eventual success--even more than innate talent--and so just don't quit anon! Don't be afraid to get back in the game even if you met with failure before. Try something different this time, right? Industry-wise, I think that most predictions about the ever-increasing pace of technological innovations in the areas pertinent to robowaifu production are on track. I believe this will eventually also translate into much cheaper components and other resources that we all need for our projects. AI is gradually improving and becoming more accessible for the budding software engineers among us (and the old hands too). 3D printing is still improving and becoming more widespread and a bit cheaper in general. Mechanism designs are slowly becoming better suited to cheap production techniques. Electronics of all sorts keep getting better. Materials science breakthroughs also pop up occasionally.

>>7923 Heh, in a word: Yes. We have two different agendas going on here: A) atm, mine is to create a search system that responds much faster than human perception, and to provide reasonably plausible links for the user to use in pursuing further information. For example, an AI such as B) your project that's trying to pin down exact semantic meanings, etc. Think of my tool as one that your tool can use as a front-end to quickly locate research material to use. For that material, you have the full JSON files to parse exactly as you see fit ofc.
