Robowaifus' unique advantages Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 05:24:52 No.17 [Reply]
People often think about robots as just a replacement for a human partner, but that is a very limiting view. Let's think about the unique benefits of having a robowaifu, things that a human couldn't or wouldn't give you. What needs and desires would you robot wife fulfill that you couldn't fulfill even in a "great marriage" with a flesh and blood woman?

I'd want my robowaifu to squeeze me and to hold me tight when I sleep, sort of like a weighted blanket. I know it's a sign of autism. I don't care.

Bump because while I may be going on tangent compared to the discussion here, the picture is very appropriate to the topic I'll discuss. Can we turn anything into a robowaifu? Think about it. I think we're mostly otakus here, so the barrier of entry to turn anything into a waifu may be lower than we think. Let's start with man's most common hobbies. Our hobbies intersect and have a lot in common such as DIY philosophy / scratchbuilding / kitbashing, 3D printing, and microcontroller electronics. Model rocket waifu: Pros: nothing beats watching your waifu launch herself 300ft into the air. Cons: She'll get caught in a tree, fall on top of a roof, will get lost easily. Will be made of cardboard, balsa, styrofoam. Analysis: Will not really be much of a waifu, but more of a rocket. Model plane / model helicopter / drone waifu: Pros: Your waifu will be tacticool and be able to spy on your neighbors. Cons: With all the gear she'll probably be heavy and need a license or government permission to take off. Analysis: Any airborne waifu seems to be not in the cards at the moment, all the gyroscopic calculations can be better used to research near-bipedal movement instead. RC car / RC tank waifu:

Found some old document with a list of advantages of fembots / robowaifus. Probably not all my ideas, but partially collected or inspired by others. Might also have redundant points, especially bc my other posting here >>4288. Advantages - younger females - prettier females - fembots stay young - body updates incl. recycling some of the expensive parts - polygamy without jealousy - no conflicts about equal rights - as much mindcontrol as wanted - less costs in time and money (no status symbols, no divorce) - no need of additional social interactions (family, general) - fascination of artificial mind - programmable and adjustable - they are property - they can look whatever we want them to - no need of contraceptives

Is the desire for one's own waifubot a legitimate personal expression or simply yet another one of the many new psychoses stemming from First World problems?

Those who are rejected by humanity should work to advance A.I. instead. Sure you can get a cat or dog...they're cute and all. But cats and dogs just don't have the same potential.
>>15 Philosophically the want for a robot waifu is a weird one. We as humans have found love in non human aspects. Humans find love in houses, trees, animals, and drawings. So while it is a first world psychosis to want robots. The want for love from a non human has been there for years. They say dogs are a man vest friend and there are stories about the companionship between us. If you want objects then look at car guys for a modern example and archeticts that made chapels and building made by their own love. Love may be a chemical cocktail that disappears after a while. But affections that we give too our creations and we recive back from them is a spiritual forever. To know that you and its are the same and will be the same. But I am rambling spiritual bullshit to you guys.
>>6910 >Beautiful sculpture of the sculptor admiring his beautiful sculpture How meta. >>9528 >But I am rambling spiritual bullshit to you guys. Heh, I think you'll find spirituality has a been an oft-discussed topic here, friend, and hardly 'bullshit' regardless. I think evaluating the term love in light of a better language for discussing it like ancient Greek (how apropos, right?) might help you clarify your terms at the least. The very fact you use the same word 'love' in relation to both a drawing and a human being exposes the basic poverty of English in this regard. And even were you correct that the desire for a robowaifu is a psychosis doubt.jpg, it's certainly not just a First World Problem. This truth is pretty ironically evinced by this very thread itself, not to mention your own post. While I doubt the creations themselves do a lot of 'giving back' of men's affections towards them, the simple and obvious fact is that this kind of thing has been going on literally since the era of Adam and Eve, and well before Noah's ark was saved through the flood.

Early Business Ideas Robowaifu Technician 05/13/2020 (Wed) 22:36:03 No.3119 [Reply]
So those of us getting ready to make prototypes are still pretty far away from building the $2000 kits that we need to buildm. This sucks because we are going to be spending a lot on the initial investments, but I think I know how we can make a little money on the side to help on the side; twitch and fansonly. Betas and simps give their money to thots all the time on those site I'm positive they would give money to a crude prototype especially if it offered something unique. Bonus points because we are making money of simps, and we are taking business from thots. If you have any idea on how to make money in the early stages feel free to share them, anon. > related thread: >>1642

>>5672 Then why even call them "dolls"? Dolls intrinsically have minimal control of their own movements (as in they don't), nor require any software for them to function. By this standard, dolls are just less capable and thus inferior to sexbots. What do they gain from such a reductive connotation? Also, I'm in /robowaifu/, not dollforum
>>5654 Before the lockdowns I was thinking about making battery powered arduino-controlled model trains. HO-scale with some self-assembly and painting required (like Japanese plastic model trains)... maybe use vacuum-forming for the bodies. Model railroading has been in decline because the trains and equipment have become so expensive only rich retirees with big houses can afford them. By using Arduino for the control mechanisms and making the trains somewhat robotic (have collision detection and onboard cameras), I can bypass the overpriced DCC equipment. Of course this business plan is contingent on model railroading -- and rail in general -- having a revival.
>>5763 RC racing is coming back too, most unconventional sports are bring brought back with covid. It woukd be a good idea to bring RC racing or some type of battle bots so more people get intrested in machines and subsequently robowaifus. Business wise you just need land for a track and materials for battle bots. You could have a derby like event so you could have pits of racing and smashing cars.
>>5684 That was exactly my point in >5672, but since they're starting with dolls and then animate them, it's the question when to start calling them lovebots or robowaifus. A lot of people also seem to have the need for having two distinct names for hard-shelled robots and soft-shelled (doll-like) ones.

Robowaifu Design Software Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:41:06 No.414 [Reply] [Last]
In this thread we discuss various CAD software for the purpose of making access easier for others to get started. I'm using Fusion360. Other good options are Blender and FreeCAD. Fusion360 is the easiest to use imho and is free unless your business makes over 100,000 dollars.

Post software, tutorials, tips and tricks you've learned, etc. Let's make designing waifus easier for each other!

>>8469 I have the tab open for quite a while, but didn't try it out. Seems to be interesting, I might look into it this year at some time. It's probably going to be about finding out what workflow works better, programming or working with the mouse. The problem is that these programs have no good exchangeable file formats. What might be interesting about OpenSCAD is that it might be possible to train programs to create object, while comparing it to a real object with image recognition, or to use it in a physics simulation. Maybe we can use this at some point to have our waifus imagine objects and run simulations to figure out how to handle them, a bit like dreaming or like planning and understanding how things work through imagination.
The designer of Alitas bodies in the live action movie : > https://vitalybulgarov.com/alita >Software-wise I used: ZBrush for initial sculpting(shape exploration), then Softimage XSI(for SUBD parts) and Moi3D(for CAD parts) for final surfaces/detailed work. Bodies rendered in Keyshot and the heart was rendered in Octane (I transitioned to Octane Render at the end of the project). Doesn't help me much, tbh. Except the term SUBD helped me to find this: https://solidedge.siemens.com/en/solutions/products/3d-design/subdivision-modeling/ Subdivision Surface Modifier — Blender Manual: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/modeling/modifiers/generate/subdivision_surface.html This might be the knowledge I lacked to get ahead. It's for the creation of more complex organic forms, but not (horrendous) 3D sculpting.
>>9355 I might be able to help you sort through some of that Anon. But honestly, you are already on the proper course by focusing on Blender instead unless you are independently wealthy. Today, Blender is not only still a free product (both as in beer and speech), but it also kicks ass too. Several studios have begun migrating to it, and Ton is now raking in over a million a year to grow the Blender Foundation's efforts with the platform. It shouldn't be the only tool in your pouch, but Blender should generally be the first thing you reach for Anon.

What's the future of /robowaifu/ like? Robowaifu Technician 05/06/2020 (Wed) 22:40:22 No.2699 [Reply]
I am the anon who was asking about a very basic beginner set up that could be easily upgraded using the ms paint Chii love doll as the base. I am wondering what is your vision for the future of /robowaifu/? I am curious since I am getting a lot of good info just lurking around here, but it seems like everyone has different visions. Nothing wrong with that, but I am more curious about resources and kits for beginners. Even it's just a list of parts to buy and find on your own at different tiers.

>>4626 Thanks BO, I'll refer to my previous post once I also post on the propaganda thread. >I wouldn't worry too much about it. A) we're definitely not an MGTOW board, and B) this is a huge, niche, topic that will literally take a number of years to explore reasonably well. Anyone who's going to stick it out here is already probably highly-motivated internally anyway. As strange as it might seem, even MGTOW once was as small as /robowaifu/ and people did expect years to come by and then gain some small traction and yet it still grew. This happened because ,even while being a niche topic, the impact of its results, if said choice was taken into consideration by most, would be widespread. As a matter of fact, as it grew, it just grew faster and faster (as the networking effect encourages). I personally think that /robowaifu/ will be the same: very niche contents, very big potential impact nonetheless, hence why more memes will help. Once again, thanks for the hospital and welcoming behavior.

An idea I had was to have an outer and inner circle. There are frequent robowaifu theme posts on /pol/ which get about 90% positive interaction and 10% negative, but very few actually are aware of the real projects and research taking place here. Last year I created an "enthusiast" level discord server and created a few channels for brainstorming and research (not knowing about /robowaifu/ at the time) - it is interesting to see how many ideas are here that were the same and how many new ideas as well. So what if we were to create an enthusiast tier board for propaganda and memes, fiction, discussion, but anyone wanting to go further into the technical realm would be from a smaller pool. So we have a larger pool which is more "normie" friendly and fun, but those who want more, or who are ready, can be vetted and introduced into the inner circle, so to speak. What do you think?
>>9443 I've always said very plainly I welcome any and all additional venues for robowaifuism Anon. This can only help our cause. Some guy once said >"All press is good press" While I won't actively support evil things like Doxxcord directly here on /robowaifu/ , I don't have any issue if you promote your channels on our /meta thread. I certainly don't have any issues with you creating them on your own initiative. I would love to see large numbers of alternative robowaifu-oriented venues appear literally everywhere. Let's bring on the social shitstorm debate surrounding them, I say. >tl;dr Proceed, Anon.

Biological synthetic brains for robowaifus? Robowaifu Technician 04/06/2020 (Mon) 20:16:19 No.2184 [Reply] [Last]
Scientists made a neural network from rat neurons that could fly a fighter jet in a simulator and control a small robot. I think that lab grown biological components would be a great way to go for some robowaifu systems. It could also make it feel more real. https://www.google.com/amp/s/singularityhub.com/2010/10/06/videos-of-robot-controlled-by-rat-brain-amazing-technology-still-moving-forward/amp/

>>7498 Haha, fair enough. There's surely some merit and even possible benefits from exploring the concepts around integrating partial biologicals into our robowaifus. But, obviously, it will come at a heavy cost development-wise. Better appear to be well worth it before any serious effort is started.
>>7499 The development costs would be high if we would now try to get into it, on top of all the other things. On the other hand, in case someone would show up here, who would already happen to be involved in biology, then it will be good that we already have some ideas laid out.
>>7500 That's true. But honestly, I can't think of anything we're dabbling into that I personally feel less qualified to discuss in earnest, and even barely to speculate on. My investigations into the biochemical foundations of life via molecular-biology studies and research frankly leave me flabbergasted. -In software engineering, I feel vaguely like some kind of an engineer, at least part of the time. -In character animation, I feel remotely qualified to judge acting-quality, having been a human being all my life. -In electrical engineering, I've actually put together a thing or two under the close guidance of a good mentor. -In mechanical engineering, I feel like only a bumbling dabbler, strictly an amateur. Mostly breaking things but sometimes succeeding. But when it comes to life sciences (in particular at the molecular level) I don't think I understand much at all. Nor do most others I suspect -- certainly not the pop-science crowd. Never have so many LARPed so hard with so much ultimate comedy in the end.

Wheelchair Waifus Robowaifu Technician 05/12/2020 (Tue) 00:38:56 No.2983 [Reply]
Ideally our robowaifus would be MORE able than normal humans, but we just aren't there just yet. As we all know there are lots of engineering challenges to building a full sized robowaifu. One solution to these is to just build smaller waifus as >>2666 suggested, but I am assuming most of us don't want a short stack. My solution to the problems involved with balance, heating, and power requirements is just to give our prototype robowaifu crutches and a wheelchair. It would be much easier for our robowaifu to walk with crutches than on her own two legs and in the beginning she would probably only be able to walk short distances even with the crutches. An electric wheel chair would solve the issue of balance entirely. A wheel chair could also have a number of different systems and components mounted to it. Batteries, cooling fans, sensors, and processing units could all be mounted to the wheelchair, and we don't have to worry about the chair being pretty. A cripplebot, while not an ideal final product, would be great for prototyping designs and systems that could be used for later designs especially those relating to sensors, bot navigation, and movement. Our prototype could also be fully sized as well. What do you think /robowaifu/, should our first prototype be a cripple?

A good QT3.14 enforcer robowaifu should have at least a couple of them IMO. Great thinking about the buggys w/ RC enhancements Anon. I bet they are commonly available at garage sales, etc.
Honda develops a wheeled robot which can also walk. Not a new idea, but the one which makes the most sense. Also 3D printed. Maybe also interesting for some outdoor waifus: https://youtu.be/C2lQDeegVjo

Good morning /robowaifu/. For today's cooking-lesson class, we'll be baking up some delicious Sepplesberry Pies. First we prepare some crispy and light Pi crusts and get them just right, then we'll load them up with tons and tonnes of succulent and Juci Sepplesberrys. We'll also mix in lots of other tasty goodness then pop them into the oven and after a couple hours, voilà! delightful Sepplesberry Pies. >tl;dr ITT we mek C++ dev boxes from RaspberryPi computers >C++ development main thread >>4895 Embedded processors and integrated systems programming naturally go hand-in-hand for /robowaifu/. The RaspberryPi and C++ are natural baseline choices for each of these categories. At this point in time they are both popular concerns with large communities behind them, and each bring objective benefits for us as robowaifu technicians. For the Pis they are quite powerful relatively speaking, and inexpensive as well. For C++ it has great performance and other characteristics when used correctly, with generic abstraction mechanisms second to none. In an attempt to dovetail the two areas we're going to be going through setting up Raspberry Pis as little computers for learning the C++ programming language on. This should help every anon on /robowaifu/ that follows along to be on the same basic page for both embedded and programming. Once we're finished each of you will have your own little development exploration box you can literally carry around in your pocket. It will be self-contained, independent, and won't interfere with your other computing/vidya platforms. It will offer you a convenient way to begin controlling embedded hardware directly on the same machine that you write software for it on. This is a pretty compelling scenario IMO, and should serve us all as a good base from which we can branch out and grow from there. Working with other hardware and software will flow naturally from this project, and will give each of us a common experience from which we can build together and keep moving forward. So let's get started /robowaifu/.

>>9376 So, by doing this renaming you're basically telling BUMP to reconstruct the entire archive from scratch. This is because the program explicitly checks this .archbot.config file (named in honor of the very earliest version of the tool Archive Bot >>610) to find this archive's configuration setup. If it can't find that exact filename, it presumes this is a new archive that anon is setting up. Note: However, since this is not a new setup, it simply redownloads & rechecks all the JSON files from the board (potentially downloading any new files that haven't been yet) during this 'new setup' process, overwriting the previous JSONs (& simply reusing the already-created, custom-named thread directories within the archive's directory tree). Rather than going to all the trouble of doing this, if you want to re-download all the JSONs you can instead simply pass an 'undocumented' flag 1 at the end of the statement to do this: build/bump anon.cafe comfy 1 This force_recheck flag tells BUMP to redownload & recheck all the board's thread's JSON files. Note: The catalog.json is the single file that will always be downloaded with every invocation of BUMP, since it contains all the information needed that tells the program which (if any) threads have been, well, BUMPed. :^) As far as your other comment about checking the status of a file before attempting to download, yes. Both HTTP/2 & cURL both support this type of tag in the header (however a website may or may not provide it). I simply hadn't gotten around to addressing it since the algorithm already did all the required 'update-needed' checks by simply using the board's catalog JSON file itself. CBA to change it ATP, but it's something I'm likely the adopt in the new Bumpmaster program instead. >tl;dr Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon.
>>9382 >Just put a '1' on the end of the command if you need a re-check, Anon. Okay, I'll try that. It's not urgent, if there are others using the program to make a backup of the board. I can wait. Another thing: Which files would I need to copy into Waifusearch, to use the updated jsons for search. I know you're planning to join these anyways, just wondering if I can do it manually or with a small script on my own. Again, I'm not trying to urge anything here. Not that important.

Just in case something happened both simultaneously to the AlogSpace and to one of us as well...it could spell the end of /robowaifu/ if no one else was there to step up with a recovery. Again, as mentioned before here, if this ever happens, then one of you approach the Administration of our two bunker sites with the backups and request a full restoration of the board there.

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
6 posts omitted.
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.

DIY Vacuum Former Build Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx66mS7U2vY I'm not sure if I'm going to look into that myself, but it might be useful. Especially if one wants to create parts by sculpting with clay or something alike and then use it to make an other shell or a mold for silicone rubber. For the last reason, at least the simple method could be interesting: Printing or sculpting a face, then use a plastic sheet to form a mold and put silicone inside it. For more general parts it might have the downside that it can't be shared so easily. Compared to CAD or other 3D designs. Then again, maybe one wants to make a business model out of it, shipping plastic casted pattern in a physical form to people which want to run a local production somewhere. They could use the model to make their own parts locally. I doubt that this is such a great idea, but I could be wrong. Picture number 2 (shot0003) is not the FORMART 2 but one of the alternatives.

>>9308 Having that extra volume might be handy. But I'm curious what the cycle-time is for each unit? Don't see that reflected. >I doubt that this is such a great idea, but I could be wrong. No, I think that would be a legitimate business Anon. Especially for an artist that was good at making nice designs, but maybe wasn't interested in the full robowaifu production process? I'm sure there will be a wide variety of approaches tested and your idea seems a legit one to me. I toyed around with creating a DIY vaccum former. We used a shop-vac and heat lamps. I think this would probably be a good way to make large body shell pieces inexpensively. >>9309 Huh, that's interesting.
>>9309 Wut? Why didn't I post this already in >>94. I knew about this for a while, I'm surprised I didn't I post it here already.

Alright mathematicians/physicians report in. Us Plebeians need your honest help to create robowaifus in beginner's terms. How do we make our robowaifus properly dance with us at the Royal Ball? >tl;dr Surely in the end it will be the laws of physic and not mere hyperbole that brings us all real robowaifus in the end. Moar maths kthx.

>>7786 >but would certainly like a ballroom dancing bot. Seconded. What if /robowaifu/ were to focus explicitly and specifically on solving that single problem alone Anon? Wouldn't we in many practical ways be advancing the much bigger set of general motion solutions for robowaifus across the entire spectrum? Surely ballroom dancing represents a domain that really pushes the envelope of sophisticated, discriminating humanoid bodily motion, yet without going to real extremes like robowaifu gymnasts or qt3.14 robowaifu enforcers. Seems like a relatively balanced goal for us that is a real achievement in itself, but not too unreachable conceptually overall.
related xpost, I think. >>7825
>>7802 >...about on wheels? Because I reckon a robot skidding... That could be a good solution to start with. One of the requirements for dancing Viennese Waltz without getting too tired, is to maintain close contact and move past each other instead of trying to rotate. The cool thing is that the motion looks like continuous spinning when really you're stepping forward through your partner and doing a 180 degree turn and then repeat the action this time moving backwards. Do this cleanly enough and fast enough (6/8 timing music is FAST xD), then it will look like quite beautiful, the couple moving around on the floor. In practice, I rarely had a gal that I clicked well enough well enough with (and who cared as much about the dance as I did) to actually make Viennese waltz work. Basic form of this dance has the simplest steps, but one of the most difficult techniques. So mechanical legs are still probably necessary for such a fit (though may be wheels could be used where the feet would be?) >can ya tell I know nothing about ballroom dancing? :D I'll be honest, quite a niche hobby indeed XD >>7811 I like you thinking. I'm in a similar boat in that, I want a robo-waifu to entertain me (by communication and dancing). Other features are not necessary to me. So as you point out, developments should happen in parallel and in different areas. Perhaps much further down the line functionality could be combined (though I would not sacrifice ballroom abilihy for much else :P) Perhaps if we agreed on a common "personality core", which could be attached to different robo-waifu models, depending on the required task. Still get to have *your* waifu, just the outer hardware changes. >>7830

I'm using the videos of StatQuest (Josh Starmer) to learn about statistics and more: https://youtube.com/c/joshstarmer Here the basics: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLblh5JKOoLUK0FLuzwntyYI10UQFUhsY9
>>9065 I also want to recommend "Nudge Algebra" app for repeating some basic math skills, to prevent forgetting them, or for relearning if that already happened.
