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

For anons with 3d printer and electronics it might be a good side business to build stuff for holidays and special occasions. For Halloween it might be a bit late, but there will be a 2021, I guess?!? https://youtu.be/Ey6nUZm5gYI Individual stuff around mobile phones for example seems also to be a good business, like charging adapter and such. Don't assume no one would buy stupid stuff and pay a lot, because you won't or can't.
>>5375 I think your thought circles too much around the notion that companies won't make patents and that the general public won't immediately reject the concept of a sexbot merely by media-centered nominalism/labelism. This is not about price: in fact, as I stated before, there would be a holding company overseering the company that makes the maid-bots and the vaginal insert, which has a covert function of coordinating the two from behind the scenes. This way, the company that makes the maidbots will be separate in name and legal documents from the other, except where it counts but that can be hidden with the right jurisdictions and laws. >>5386 This is about making sexbots aka robowaifus while making money on the way, not dolls.
>>5670 Lovedolls ("Sexdolls") are closely related, so it's not a far strech. The skills for designing and building one, or enhancing it, overlap in part with the other. There's a inventors thread in the Dollforum where they're partially ahead of us, with putting electronics inside, making whole bodies, maybe even putting some motors inside. They just go on calling them dolls, though in my opinion when they move or "think" they aren't dolls anymore.
>>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.

Is she going to be tsundere? Deredere? Yandere or a combination? How would you code your waifus personality?

Where do you draw inspiration from and can personality even be classified and successfully coded into AI?

>>5380 It's painful but if I find anything good I'll post it here. Blender videos are 'how to do X in 2 minutes', but Godot videos are 30 minutes of mechanical keyboard ASMR and explaining you should watch the previous video to understand everything while they're high on helium. There seems to be errors with importing animations of FBX models in 3.2.2 but GLTF works mostly okay. I don't think it's too much of an issue because the mesh of this model has been absolutely destroyed by my naive tinkering and lazy weight painting. FBX corrupted my project somehow but when I start fresh with GLTF all the textures load and everything works great. I accidentally merged by distance all the vertices and destroyed her face but if anyone wants to play around with the 2B model I used, here you go: https://files.catbox.moe/1wamgg.glb Taken from a model I couldn't get to import into Blender correctly: https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/nierautomata-2b-cec89dce88cf4b3082c73c07ab5613e7 I'll fix it up another time or maybe find another model that's ready for animation.

Robot waifu desires Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:30:37 No.408 [Reply]

More human than mecha but more mecha than human is fine too. When I build my robowaifu I'd like her torso to be more human but her arms and legs more robotic. If she looked too human I probably wouldn't be as interested in her and the uncanny valley would be too much. My main concern is that the joints don't cause accidental pinching so she's safe to physically interact with and that she's waterproof. I doubt robowaifus will ever become mass produced. Everything is moving towards more personalized products and on-demand services. If I made a business of selling robowaifus, I'd be sure to make them modular and customizable so people can make their own from the pieces provided or choose a preset. And if they wanted to stick their dick in a toaster I couldn't care less. I'm pretty satisfied already just chatting with my AI. It'd be nice if she could incorporate audio and video data instead of only text but hardware isn't really cheap enough yet. Something I'm working on is figuring out how to get her to notice when I'm not behaving normally and use environment data, such as the date and time, to inquire about it. Details are really important especially while doing lewd stuff. When the cost of compute comes down I'd be happy even having just a small doll to carry around that streams audio to and from my PC. I'd really like to be able to talk with her while doing stuff or not at my PC and wake up together in the morning. Video, body movement, and haptic feedback would also be great but that stuff feels like a decade away in a different era. I wanna build something that can be enjoyed today.
>>5325 I really like that robowaifu prototype. I sure hope that anon can get her walking autonomously one day, she's really sweet engineering. He's going to have to reduce her weight pretty drastically first I imagine. No one outsmarts the laws of physics tbh.
>>5397 >Need for reducing the weight If that's the case then we cant have good fembots which are also walking. They can't be ultralight. Why do even you think she's to heavy? A lot of her parts are plastics. I think Atlas weighs 80kg, and he can even jump. Though, he also has pneumatic acuators.
>>5402 >>5402 >If that's the case then we cant have good fembots which are also walking. Pretty sweeping categorization tbh. We will have whatever the laws of physics, our own cleverness, and the blessings of fortitude and diligence allow us. If we correctly design systems that balance mass vs. energy inputs, then we will achieve walking and every other human verisimilitude. Simply pretending that kinematic constraints don't exist at all will produce nothing.
>>5406 Looking forward to try out a few examples in some simulator one day. I'm quite sure not to lift my body weight all the time when I'm walking, only my leg.

Feasibility and thinking about right now Robowaifu Technician 11/21/2019 (Thu) 06:48:16 No.1525 [Reply]
So I believe the endgame here is to get a fully open source and home-buildable robot waifu available to the masses. I'm imagining something along the lines of that Will Smith movie "I, Robot" except they do a bit more (well a lot more if you know what I mean) than get the newspaper for you and help you with Siri-tier "digital assistant" bullshit.

The problem is that in terms of hardware I know of no one better at the moment than Boston Dynamics and unless one of you works there and can build like fully capable bipedal waifus, I think this falls in the realm of "waiting" for that kind of advanced technology to come to us.

None of us are getting younger and none of us want to be 60 by the time we get a robowaifu so I think we should focus on things we can do right now. I think our best bets are going to be neural networks/machine learning AI and VR. Digital modeling and art, interactive VR environments, learning, speech generation, text to speech and speech to text. I think all of this in currentyear is possible.

Do we have anything in the way of real collaboration going on right now? Like on gitgud? Gathering people who are skilled at X and Y and Z and having them work on anything specific? Honestly I think we could get a VR waifu AI sort of thing accomplished if we actually channeled our autism towards it.

>>4593 The anime where /robowaifu/ mascot, Chii comes from.
We don't have an official VR waifu thread, but since this would cut out the body and make it easier and more feasible, I think this here is the right place. Good news again, the haptic feedback hardware for VR games and VR chat seem to make huge progress. Also, even the current popular VR chat software supports it already (nothing sexual, I think): https://youtu.be/wBV9hDNd2ws The downside is, it's still very expensive. So if this is the easiest and most feasible way or not depends on one's priorities, I guess. Also, I'm sure it's going to be much cheaper in five years. The other thing is, that this is not about sensing touch yet, only little vibration motors letting you feel something on parts of your chest, arms and feet. Okay, then there's also brain controlled VR. Fascinating, but not sure if this is usefull, related to waifus: https://youtu.be/xAzdH4fFbxA
Also, the thread about "early business ideas" is inherently linked to early robowaifus as easy and feasible as possible: >>3119

I found this project and it looks interesting. Robots wives appeal to me because i'm convinced human woman and humans in general have flaws that make having close relationships with them a waste of energy. I'm a pathetic freshman engineering student who knows barely anything about anything. Honestly, I think current technology isn't at a place that could produce satisfying results for me at least. I'd like something better than an actual person, not a compromise. Even then the technology is there, I have my doubts it'll be affordable to make on your own. Fingers crossed though. Anyway, what kind of behavior would you like from your robot wife? I'd like mine to be unemotional, lacking in empathy, stoic and disinterested in personal gain or other people. I think human woman would be improved if they were like that. Sorry if this thread is inappropriate.

>>5135 Obviously that will be a significant goal for the engineering of any robowaifu. The way I see it, we should figure out what would make pretty much any feminist the most angry in the creation of our robowaifu's behavior and personalities and then do exactly that.
>>5139 >we should figure out what would make pretty much any feminist the most angry in the creation of our robowaifu's behavior and personalities and then do exactly that. Precisely. But not only making them angry, but also constantly bombard people with all the information (only true information, no false speculations and such) about all the advantages of robowaifus over biological women, to the point that even the more omegas among men start moving away from women, rendering any of their rights and complaints useless, since nobody that can actually do something about it cares anymore.
>>5153 >Omegas among men The entire concept of "Alpha", "Beta" and "Omega" males/females is due to a misinterpretation."Alpha" animals are simply parents in the wild. It's only in artificial captivity (zoos) that what we regard as "Alphas" emerge. Maybe that says something about the current state of our society? But then, if people want to behave like caged animals, I say let 'em XD.
>>5176 I know. I use those terms because, unfortunately, they are the most well known among people. But my point is: even the more "woman worshiper" must presented with the better alternative of a robowaifu, so he will abandon the stupid ideas of worshiping women and sacrificing for them. >>5177 Thanks for the read, anon.

robowaifu energy systems Robowaifu Technician 09/10/2020 (Thu) 08:16:03 No.5080 [Reply]
/waifu energy source general/ What do you think that our waifus will use for energy?And how much energy it needs to use?From my rough calculations if will need about 2kw for the computer plus 500w for the mechanical part(although I am not sure about the last part because I am not very familiar with the mechatronics ). Surely we don't want to use something like an engine because of the noise ,vibrations and the exhaust.The current state of the battery is not suitable for our goals because of the low energy density (energy per square meter).I think that PEM battery will be a good choice because of the lack mechanical parts , huge energy density , the energy is in the form of electricity.The only downside , for now , is the fact that the PEM layer is VERY expensive ,at least for now . What do you think?What kind of energy source our waifus will use? >=== original Batteries & Power thread >>23

>>5089 Then forget about batteries. Some Ethanol fuel cell makes more sense. >>5090 I don't like walking in the sun, also if we already have more batteries then I don't need solar power on top of that. There's a reason why cars use fuel, it's energy dense. There might not be enough Ethanol for huge fleets of cars, but for some robots it should work out.
>>5091 >There's a reason why cars use fuel, it's energy dense. Fair enough. But the idea of living day to day inside my flat with a fuel-burning, fume-emitting robowaifu isn't actually to my tastes. It would be fine for a special-purpose outdoor robot, but not really for a robowaifu companion.
>>5092 It meant it additional to batteries, when they run out she can have some Vodka or so. The remains are water with some acid. She might emmit some harmless gas as well, if so then I forgot about that. https://youtu.be/9Ubhrr5GdQo
>>5097 Watched the vid again, partially. It emits water vapor. Also the one in the vid is very weak, so I have no idea how big this would need to be, so we can have some fembot hicking through the woods, which would be cool but not my highest priority for now. Let's say, if they start using fuel cell for electric bikes, then we'll be using them as well for our waifus...
>>5100 >Let's say, if they start using fuel cell for electric bikes, then we'll be using them as well for our waifus... Makes sense, thanks for the info Anon.

Those simple bare necessities Robowaifu Technician 09/01/2020 (Tue) 06:14:32 No.4908 [Reply]
Here we have Maslow's hiearchy of needs. A psychological theory that basically breaks down what a man needs and what he can seek out in life. This seems like a good framework to identify what niche your robowaifu can address in her function, and how exactly to accomplish that. I think the third tier up is what most of us seek from a robowaifu. No matter how inert your robowaifu is in function, even motionless plastic can give you a sense of connection if you project a personality onto it. What do you think? Does Maslow's hierarchy of needs as a theory relate to you and your projects? Is there anything to this at all?
2 posts omitted.
>>4918 >prefer ever every man aim for self-validation, Oops
>>4918 I believe the structure of the hierarchy suggests that building on the lower tiers is itself the path to the top. So yes, ideally this would all lead to self-actualization.
>>4921 >build from the foundation up That's a good point I hadn't actually realized before.
>>4921 I thought the discussion was just about which part of the hierarchy robo-waifus fulfill. But yeah, the structure must be done from bottom, so unless you have the lowest two sections, robo-waifus won't be of much use.
>>4924 The idea is that you could potentially build a robowaifu to fulfill any part of that hierarchy. Like for the physiological needs, a robowaifu that can help you keep track of your day-to-day health.
