/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.

Humanoid Robot Projects Videos Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 04:02:08 No.374
I'd like to have a place to accumulate video links to various humanoid – particularly gynoid – robotics projects are out there. Whether they are commercial scale or small scale projects, if they involve humanoid robots post them here. Bonus points if it's the work of a lone genius.

I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project. I think it's pretty impressive even if it can't walk yet.

BTW, a Nanon on nano/g created a simple BASH script that retries youtube-dl downloads up to 10 times automatically if Y*utube rejects a torsocks-based connection with a 429 error. You ARE using Tor to download anything from any G*ogle properties, aren't you, Anon? :^) >tor_ytdl_retry.sh #!/usr/bin/env bash maxtries=10 em="ERROR: Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests (caused by <HTTPError 429: 'Too Many Requests'>); please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug .

>>8439 Thanks, but I wrote a probably better script in a more readable language a while ago. It's on some SD card somewhere, I hope. Currently I don't need it. >Tor I'm using the official Youtube app on my Android tablet, where I'm logged into my Google account, where they have my debit card data. I'm not using Tor for archiving with Youtube-dl, because I'm assuming that these IPs wouldn't make it easier to download many files.
>>8440 >I'm using the official Youtube app on my Android tablet, where I'm logged into my Google account, where they have my debit card data. Haha, fair enough. What else can I say to that? :^) >I'm not using Tor for archiving with Youtube-dl, because I'm assuming that these IPs wouldn't make it easier to download many files. 'Easier' isn't really the point, but yes, I'd say that's a fair assessment, Anon. Cheers.
You know, I'd say we have a couple hundred links to videos here, and at least that much from the older board that haven't been reposted here as of yet. We should devise some alternative backups somewhere for all of these once G*ogle higher-ups decide "ALL POTENTIALLY DIY ROBOWAIFU-RELATED CONTENT SHALL BE CANCEL-CULTURED HENCEFORWARD". We all know they eventually will, it's just a matter of time. We should be planning and acting proactively on this Anons.
>>8442 by 'here', i mean all of /robowaifu/ ofc.
>>8442 I don't think they can do that, bc these are mostly maker videos. Or at least their motivation to do that isn't high enough. Downloading them should be sufficient for now. BitTorrent would be the easiest way to share the backups, but the IP addresses would be open or VPN/Tor required. I don't know enough about MEGA and such platforms. Something like Freenetproject would be overkill, until it isn't. Some years ago I2P worked better for file sharing via torrents than Tor.
>>8444 To a degree, I'd say I broadly agree. However, we explicitly had a few from the 8/robowaifu/ days that were deleted by Youtube. They weren't explicitly sexual, but obviously ecchi-oriented and provisionally sexdoll/robowaifu capable. For example a Japanese man had created a VR-waifu, with a mechanical masturbation machine synced with the animation. Obviously echii, but fully clothed and the man simply sat near the machine to indicate general usage. There were (and are) far more sexual things openly on Youtube. This one was pulled IMO simply b/c it threatened women's stranglehold on sex (that ultimately robowaifus represent to them as well). This was a pretty well-known example, but there were other ones even more tame pulled as well. Things will get worse for men in general in this whole area in the future as the Marxists and neolibs quadruple-down on their gynocentrism.
>>8445 That's a valid problem to some extend, but also more a nuisance than a showstopper for development. Also, this is mainly a problem if the owner won't upload it somewhere else by himself (Bitchute, Lbry, ...). MGTOW.tv got their app taken down by Google, btw. However, they're working on extending their site to the whole menosphere, which clearly includes us.
>>8446 Good points. Maybe we should consider an account on lbry or something? I have literally hundreds of videos at least tangentially-related to robowaifus downloaded over the years (including the one mentioned above of the Japanese guy & his VR-waifu simulator).
>>8449 I don't know enough about it. Which platform is the best? Are they allowing uploads of vids from someone else? ... LBRY never worked very well on my tablet whenever I tried. One big advantage of YouTube is, that they create vids in different resolutions and one can de- or increase the resolution while watching.
>>8450 I don't know, but I intend to find out soon. The question isn't whether Y*utube is the most powerful video content delivery system atm, it clearly is. And why they arrogantly flaunt their monopoly, again, at the moment. Many are getting fed up with G*ogle and their shit, and competitive alternatives will arise to replace them if they keep it up. Maybe LBRY is, maybe it'll be someone else. Regardless, we need to save everything of any value to us here as we prepare for the deplatforming that is coming for us.
This guy builds a humanoid robot, to some extend based on scans of human bones - DARA project channel: https://youtube.com/c/DARARobot Description: https://youtu.be/ygDFYg0iEig[Embed] Hands: >>8700 Feet: >>8704 Thingyverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/willy1067/designs >From a young age, I was attracted to engineering. Building things. However, I grew up and had to adult, so I made signs for my own company www.pinellas-sign-manufacturer.com. >Now, I have more time for myself and decided to follow my childhood dream of building things. >I bought a 3D Printer a few months ago (February 2017), and in no time I was designing parts and building robotic hands parts from the design I created many years ago. >What is the difference with my design, compared to other robotic out there? Well... mine only uses one motor, and a new technology called Bio-Metal as actuators. As of September 23, I can proudly say that my first finger is finally designed, printed, and in working order.

Thanks for letting us know Anon.
>>9357 After watching it I'm still woundering why I saw no one building something alike, though some variants require SLS printed (laser/powder) parts. However, in another case they're using Polymorph to model things by hand. Two extremes. >26 DCX maxonmotors I think they start at 50$, but cost rather more. >Files on Thingyverse, search for "therobotstudio" >full pull 2 youtube-dl -i --write-description https://youtu.be/XX3eG2hWybs https://youtu.be/jrCeb0JaZYY https://youtu.be/Xzs8cBcru4g https://youtu.be/PTNdDwtXfWU https://youtu.be/YiKXDV0B17w https://youtu.be/8yLiMXVUD2M https://youtu.be/j4JojoY-jDA https://youtu.be/iZe_E_Shs-M https://youtu.be/ycJir0GoDU4 https://youtu.be/yxktJP4pg2Y https://youtu.be/_7KpAFvlVdY https://youtu.be/irPGl2WW-JA https://youtu.be/O0NzNKF14os https://youtu.be/w0TLQHj2l5s https://youtu.be/E--WuUH2Pto https://youtu.be/ZET7e-ldhaM https://youtu.be/Htnq5ytj70s https://youtu.be/MA8_MGaNqUA https://youtu.be/ffReTt6UCwg https://youtu.be/33S_TbyrTQE https://youtu.be/Tg2vtl1xbJc https://youtu.be/1JgyHewDNFU >7+ freaking years old!!1!
>>9470 That Polymorph stuff is sweet. I'll have to look into obtaining some of it at some point. I'm sort of a natural sculptor. Maybe I can fashion some robowaifu parts that way first, and then make casting molds of them for small production runs on kits, etc. >full pull 2 a) probably a bit better for everyone to place a list like that inside a code-block, so it works smoothly as a terminal copypasta: youtube-dl -i --write-description https://youtu.be/XX3eG2hWybs https://youtu.be/jrCeb0JaZYY https://youtu.be/Xzs8cBcru4g https://youtu.be/PTNdDwtXfWU https://youtu.be/YiKXDV0B17w https://youtu.be/8yLiMXVUD2M https://youtu.be/j4JojoY-jDA https://youtu.be/iZe_E_Shs-M https://youtu.be/ycJir0GoDU4 https://youtu.be/yxktJP4pg2Y https://youtu.be/_7KpAFvlVdY https://youtu.be/irPGl2WW-JA https://youtu.be/O0NzNKF14os https://youtu.be/w0TLQHj2l5s https://youtu.be/E--WuUH2Pto https://youtu.be/ZET7e-ldhaM https://youtu.be/Htnq5ytj70s https://youtu.be/MA8_MGaNqUA https://youtu.be/ffReTt6UCwg https://youtu.be/33S_TbyrTQE https://youtu.be/Tg2vtl1xbJc https://youtu.be/1JgyHewDNFU b) while I didn't do it (I was relying on your title listing already provided), it's always a more comfortable experience for everyone having some idea what we're getting into before we start a download, heh. :^) Regardless, thanks again Anon. Much appreciated!
One other thing to mention Anon, always good to keep youtube-dl updated regularly: sudo youtube-dl -U as YT regularly changes their page interface, (apparently primarily in an attempt to foil youtube-dl users from being able to use the tool).
>>9470 That's pretty sweet. Looks like he has his robot standing fully upright without suspension or support.
>>9473 Also BTW I think I've posted this elsewhere, but here's the script I use for youtube-dl over Tor: >tor_ytdl_retry.sh #!/usr/bin/env bash maxtries=10 em="ERROR: Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests (caused by <HTTPError 429: 'Too Many Requests'>); please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug .

This script basically allows youtube-dl to ignore that up to 10 times and proceed anyway. >=== -add subtitle args

>>9473 I'm using Curl or Wget >To install it right away for all UNIX users (Linux, OS X, etc.), type: sudo curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl >If you do not have curl, you can alternatively use a recent wget: sudo wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -O /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl sudo chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl >You can also use pip: sudo pip install --upgrade youtube_dl
>>9480 Yup, that's definitely the way to go if you're on Linux, lad.
>>9480 >>9481 Oh wait. I just presumed you were referring to installing youtube-dl the first time. Once it's on your box, you simply run this command exactly as specified: sudo youtube-dl -U youtube-dl does the rest from there. (BTW on W*ndows, you don't need the 'sudo')
>>9357 >>9362 >>9470 >>9471 Just wanted to mention, that in some videos the guy is heating up PTFE (Teflon) without giving any warnings or claiming to wear a mask. Just don't do that. Wear a mask, or at lest do it outside, or in a garage where the door and a window or another door is open. Maybe also use a ventilator blowing the fumes away from your work. Doesn't matter if it smells or not and how bad, just don't.
This video is quite okay: https://youtu.be/s0NsPhTgZ-k - a take on "sexbots" by Pro Robots. It's not really negative, and a overview over the commercial projects. A bit pessimistic on how fast AI will advance, I hope. Also, of course not without "our" western values, but not very judgemental.

I just found out about two Youtubers - 'Thomas Messerschmidt' and 'Hawaiisunfun' who have collaborated together to build a robowaifu called 'SimOne' (clever name!) There is even some code on Github and an article about how she was made in 'Servo' magazine (although to read the whole thing you have to sign up). Their Youtube channel showcasing SimOne: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLijUd-zqtQ9PZxuJNhs0_9ofYCa0L-JSe https://www.servomagazine.com/magazine/article/build-simone-the-ai-fembot At one point in the second video they say that SimOne uses a "WowWee Alive Elvis Animatronic Head" as the base for her own head, which I thought was a really smart move!

>>10315 >those manic drilling-sequences kek. Impoverished men deserve to have robowaifus too. To the extent possible, IMO we here on /robowaifu/ should strive to find ways to economize on the resources needed to construct our robowaifus. And then share everything we know freely ofc. It's one of the reasons I've been working towards designs with very inexpensive construction materials such as drinking straws as structural members. The point is for literally thousands of men around the entire world making literally millions of robowaifus of every form imaginable. While countries that don't have an abundance of affluent White female liberals won't have anywhere near the pozz and feminism that we here in the West do, still these men are also burdened by it to. Or soon will be, as the Globohomo tightens it's death-grip on everyone. Men in these countries should be encouraged by us to learn the skills they need to do what they can with what they have. Thanks for finding & posting this here Anon, appreciated.

Here's a video with an overview of the available technologies needed to build humanoid robots.

>>11748 Thanks Anon! Dang, this guy is both talented and based. The arm's design and the articulated waldo design are both minimalist 'to-the-point' looking, and very functional as well. I think we would all be wise to study this man's works more closely, particularly his more recent ones such as this arm. >Humanoid Project Video/10
>>11748 It seems to me this guy has solved the '3-axis problem' for the shoulder pretty handily. Not only is it economical in form, it looks to be practically spot-on in the biomimetics-sense too.

While the Mesmer platform as it stands might not be fit for robowaifu (way too expensive), having a professionally designed animatronic head to build off of could be a hell of a boost. Fellow anons, do us all a favor if you don't mind and show Engineered Arts some interest in the open source version!
