/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.

Waifu Robotics Project Dump Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:45:02 No.366

Neat stuff Anon. We should probably find a way to integrate the idea of 'Wheeled Robowaifus' and then just combine the Wheelchair Waifus thread and the wheeled waifus in the Visual Waifus all together into it. This should go there as well.
>>8828 Yes, this belongs to "wheelchair waifu" thread, but should be named differently. There's also the problem that visual waifu thread now includes VR, so some thread for virtual ones would be necessary as well. We had this discussion before, there's a grey zone where the waifu body is just a screen rolling around on wheels.
>>8824 WOW. This dude is an engineer-and-a-half! Proper machined gears in her main driveshaft! This is a treasure-trove of robowaifu-building information anon! Thank you! Immediately faved the link to Masiro's dev page. (Was also amazed to see he managed to strip the teeth off the gearbox of one of those 380kg.cm servo motors - all those electronics, metal gears and aluminum extrusions must add up to quite some weight! Either that or Masiro chan is secretly stock-car racing!)
>>8876 Neat. #3 reminds me of our Sophie robowaifu that Anon is designing and building!
>>8879 Yes, she's quite similar, but with smaller servos, therefore probably weaker. Also smaller hands, but no facial expressions and no voice box yet.
>>8881 Yep, seems like it. I'd say Sophie Anon has been pretty clever the way he's put all the pieces together the way he has. I look forward to seeing her with her own camera eyes, and maybe some kind of wheeled base like Masiro-chan's >>8824 .
>>8876 She's like Sophie's sister! The old weighted box and pole! XD While idiots obsess over race and gender-baiting by the increasingly obsolete legacy media and get bogged down in futile flame wars, we along with our bros in Japan are enjoying a robowaifu renaissance!
>>8899 That would be really neat if you 4 could meet together someday and all take a group photo together. Robowaifu-Con when?

The first one is Kibo-chan in "nude", the others are Alita design porn pics.
>>9039 I always appreciate any design details anyone digs up for us about the Alita Battle Angel character designs. >kibo-chan w/o her toidies on Hehe, just shows how genius her creators design of the face & eyes is.

>>9743 A creative solution to the bipedal walking issue. The zombie ghoul look isn't working though :^)
>>9743 Interesting work Anon. Do you know if he is still planning on more work on it? Is he going to give her some eyes, for example?
>>9968 Well, the whole idea of posting his Disqus ID was to make it possible to find his page again, but search doesn't work. I found this somehow by looking into OpenFembot, but can't find it again.

This robowaifu is such an inspiration. I wish I could afford to make stuff like this. https://twitter.com/61laboratory/status/1385901199329697794
>>10114 Yeah, it's pretty awesome Anon. But, hey it's always good to have something for us to strive for Anon, right? Part of our general agenda is to find ways to make robowaifu construction much cheaper. To devise (relatively) inexpensive kits that any Anon can assemble inside his own garage in a few weeks, right? BTW, please post any more pics you obtain of this anon's project, Anon. As you say, it's an inspiration to us all.

>>10116 The creator says the small, powerful servos she needs to walk are too expensive. I looked up the cost and they're only $2500 each. :^)
>>10119 I wonder if those could be replaced with brushless motors with cycloidal gearboxes, with something like an Odrive you can get servo or stepper motor like accuracy out of them. Materials for the gearboxes would be the biggest problem, the designs I've seen for 3D-printable ones tend to be somewhat large, but could be hidden in the design.
>>10119 >"We'll never get the budget we need! It's an outrageous amount!" Lol, I literally just finished watching the first episode of Robot Notes if you know what I'm saying. That's obviously too expensive. But OTOH, he's probably using the wrong basic internal design. You can't have a bunch of heavy servos and other components as thrown weight out on the levers of the the extremities of arms and legs if you want to keep the costs down. These item have to be moved inboard into the torso of the robowaifu, it's the only practical way. We have Mini-Cheetah servo design from MIT (>>8415) that run about US$350/incl drivers. They have sufficient force to properly run one hip joint each, as long as other weighty components are kept inboard from their pivot attachments.
>>10121 >Robotics;Notes* FTFM
>>10121 >They have sufficient force to properly run one hip joint each I envision something like two of these Stewert Platforms (>>8648) situated transversally in the lower pelvis region, and serving somewhat like a ball-and-socket hip joint would behave in a typical human or other megafauna. Not an actual ball-and-socket, but it would behave somewhat like it. One Mini-Cheetah each would be affixed onto the outward-facing plate of each Stewart Platform, and provide the fore-aft motion of the upper leg. The knee & and ankles would be actuated by thin steel Bowden cables running along the leg itself. Micro servos can still be located distally for the basic foot/toe actuation, since they a) don't need to deliver much force to perform their own lever-actions, and b) they don't weigh much themselves. (Oops. Actually, I'll stop here, I just realized this should actually be a post in the Skeletons & Armatures thread instead).

>>10121 >"We'll never get the budget we need! It's an outrageous amount!" Someone building a robowaifu has managed to raise $40,000 for original voice synthesizer software. There's a lot of money to be made pioneering stuff. Just imagine how much money people will throw at someone building robowaifus to sell with a working original voice and personality. https://camp-fire.jp/projects/view/294279
>>10130 Yes, the pent-up demand by men everywhere is going to be a veritable tsunami of shut up and take my money.jpg (>>9300). There are literally hundreds of billions of dollars to be made in the nascent robowaifu industries once they become functional, reliable, inexpensive, and appealing enough. Highly talented and skilled Robowaifu Technicians the world over won't be able to hold all the things of people banging on their doors demanding attention regarding their wares (for good and bad heh). For those of us who choose to capitalize on all our efforts in this way, I'd suggest the typical exit strategy of say, John McAfee. Namely, a) first build it then give it away, b) start charging a nominal fee for the millions of user to upgrade their copies, c) ???, d) Profit. For those of you who are going to become billionaires from your robowaifu pioneering, I have but one simple request: Don't become some leftist commie, Big Tech/Gov evil asshole, with all you've been given. That's it.

Japanese devs just had an online conference for robotic dolls where they presented their work and answered questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXnFasAysao Not everyone could make it but I discovered a lot of projects I had never seen before.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chf6eirs1ps Something I'd like to get my hands on is the wowwee femisapien robot. Personally, I think the robot is pretty impressive for being a lat 2000's kids toy and apparently, Mark Tilden designed the entire Robosapien line with the intention of them being moddable. I'd love to try and see if I could reverse engineer one, but the only photos of it's innards I could find are either low quality or don't show the entire inside. I do have an original robosapien I could work off of if the femisapien doesn't pan out
>>10249 I really like the shaft-driven+u-joint actuator system for the arm that shows up well in that picture Anon. If you have any more pictures of that robot's internals please post them here. TIA.

>>10250 >>10251 This is the only other photo I have, it's cool to see other people interested in it's insides
>>10252 That's helpful thanks. I wonder why they discontinued her?
>>10253 Toy lines always fall out of style, it was inevitable
>>10254 I see, makes sense. BTW, apparently here's the page for her on the guy who made the video. http://robotsrule.com/html/femisapien.php Thanks for bringing her up Anon.
>>10249 >Mark Tilden Neat. I didn't even know about him Anon, thanks.
>>10245 Wow, his original robot had a duckface for me, but her companions are much cuter in my opinion. Time to invest in large OLED displays I guess. I've tried plain LCDs since they were cheap but you can't see anything and the backlight is uneven.
>>10245 This looks like it would hurt to look at over long periods of time.

This looks and feels like the work of one of us.https://hackaday.io/project/182126-robotic-cat-girl
>>14401 100cm or 1m is too small after all. That onahole between her legs is really creepy at that scale. We really must be careful about height
>>14401 I like her. Better than I can do, though also not really what I want. >>14420 She's cute and obviously a robot.
>>3432 >invidio.us link >404s
>>14420 >creepy >height Where I live they banned all sex dolls with faces or hands or feet to even avoid the question of 'is it too cute in the face' so you're wasting your time due to the fact that normal people will be guilty of witch hunting with a very slippery slope to guide them.
>>14479 >so you're wasting your time due to X <"STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE!11" lol, hardly. let the seethers seethe on friend. >=== -minor grammar edit
