/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.

Welcome to /robowaifu/, the exotic AI tavern where intrepid adventurers gather to swap loot & old war stories...


Safety & Security General Robowaifu Technician 04/20/2021 (Tue) 20:05:08 No.10000
This is just a place-holder for now, intended simply to steal the 10'000 get for this thread's OP if possible :^)
OK, my apologies for the delay on this thread. So, I'd say first off we ought to begin a discussion about the appropriate level of reveal we should engage in here. That is, how much information should we share with each other here, knowing full-well that glowniggers, leftists, and other goons & enemies are watching our cleartext communications on /robowaifu/ ? Security is always a cat-and-mouse type of game, and it's a tricky business dealing with adversaries in this arena. Nothing new, this kind of thing has been going on for literally thousands of years in human history. The big difference today is that single White females with no children are out there with their goyphones looking for the next society-destroying """narrative""" to start backing/promoting. You can be certain these extremely-entitled females would love to destroy both you and your robowaifus, Anon. As a simple example to get started with, Handheld 'EMP' generators. Not too hard to find information on creating them, and they would likely prove to be effective weapons against our robowaifus. OTOH, we all know they will be used that way against us, so it's plainly in our best interest to both devise them ourselves and then begin the process of hardening our own systems against such an attack. See the conundrum? So, please take some thought about this topic and share any good ideas you have here Anon.
I'll begin with the obvious defence; a Faraday cage. Except nowadays it's also possible to enclose devices in a flexible steel mesh; a so-called "Faraday Bag"> A few of these around your essential circuits is a good idea. Also, the range of these EMP devices is often very short; a few inches to a few feet away - so both they and their device are highly likely to be accessible if not identifiable. We all know how cocky these libs are on Twitter, but as the age-old saying goes; >"It is easy to be brave behind a castle wall." There exists a possiblity that the aggressor is using specialist equipment like an explosively-pumped flux compression generator (EFCG), which has a range of upto a few dozen yards dependent upon how much current is being generated. However, an EFCG would be a stupid way of temporarily disabling one's robowaifu, considering the cost of a few Arduinos is about $100 but the cost of such a high-tech weapon would run into tens of thousands of dollars at least, and it requires knowledge of high-explosives to operate safely. Additionally, an EFCG is a one-shot device; destroying itself in the process of releasing an extremely intense and brief EMP. Personally, I'm more concerned about thugs just vandalising my robowaifu (particularly her head and delicate eye mechanism). Just make sure both yourself and your robowaifu have bodycams running and sending the footage to a backup server if you ever go out and about. At least that way you can get evidence and prosecute for criminal damage (and also likely assault/GBH since you'll be trying to stop them).
>>10868 Thanks Anon. If you have any insights to share about the level of, and protocols for, the 'reveal' we make here concerning security/safety issues, please do share them (and everyone else too ofc). Obviously, you're not in favor of a strict embargo on information. Personally, I'm at the extreme end of 'freedom of information' for at least a couple of reasons. 1) Such restrictions often don't work out (especially over the long haul). And given that we are simply manufacturers (in essence), not fundamental researchers, all the common weaknesses of our component parts will be well mapped out in advance by reasonably intentional adversaries. IMO this drives us towards sharing everything we can with each other. 2) Related to the first point, even if one of us did manage some type of original research into an innovative system design with special benefits for safety/security, eventually it will be uncovered regardless. This kind of situation is commonplace in corporate espionage, for example, as companies jealously attempt to guard their secrets from one another for business advantage. Again, it never works over the long haul. OTOH, I recognize my own propensity for foolhardiness, rushing in where others fear to tread. I'm open to correction in this area. :^) >EFCG Interesting, I didn't know about that one. It looks like a directed-weapon design. Also, if it's operational mode is literally driven by a high explosion charge, then it's extremely likely to make a loud noise I'd say. >Thuggery Particularly during these early 'outlier' years, where the probability of a functional robowaifu being seen casually in public is quite uncommon, then your precious robowaifu is certainly likely to be a target of assault and theft. Certainly the idea of cell-connected cams recording everything in detail is a good place to start, legally-speaking I'd say. Very complex legal topic (though it obviously should be cut-and-dried rather), and I certainly have little to offer on that. My area is properly physical defense, and psychological approaches against evildoers. >--- But again, ATM, my first objective for this thread is >"So, I'd say first off we ought to begin a discussion about the appropriate level of reveal we should engage in here. That is, how much information should we share with each other here, knowing full-well that glowniggers, leftists, and other goons & enemies are watching our cleartext communications on /robowaifu/ ?" That issue should first guide and cordon off the other discussions proper. The 'groundrules', so to speak.

That is, how much information should we share with each other here, knowing full-well that glowniggers, leftists, and other goons & enemies are watching our cleartext communications on /robowaifu/ ? I think about this everyday. If we learned anything from the past decade, any site/image-board is most likely being constantly monitored. How many here don't share out of (justified) paranoia? I've talked with other engineers and programmers IRL with an interest in artificial women (bots) but said they would never share or talk about it with random people. It would probably be a pain, but if anyone starts to say stuff that we may all be thinking, but GLOWS, should probably be prevented/stopped. I think we really won't know the extent to which they might be against robowaifus until something goes "big". If anons released a small kit, that had a partially programmed bot that taught would-be technicians to further learn... I think that would be a safe starting point to test the waters. It's dexterity doesn't have to be amazing, just something to get more anons involved. I've talked to others elsewhere and while are interested in it, have no idea where to begin. Lots here even may be capable of jumping to more complicated/agile bots, but I think there are some lurkers lost who just "cheer". Ehh... I am going off topic now, but I am sure a lot of anons are glad that others are also concerned with OpSec.
>>10871 >I've talked with other engineers and programmers IRL with an interest in artificial women (bots) but said they would never share or talk about it with random people. Then I would suggest you find some way to help these men discover /robowaifu/ Anon. If they lurk for a few weeks here, they may just become comfortable enough with the anonymous imageboard form of communications to begin contributing. But even if not, /robowaifu/ has a veritable cornucopia of information collected here now. Even though things can be haphazard as far as organization goes with this form, there are a wide array of topics at least touched on here. Surely they would manage to find something both encouraging and helpful to their own project work here?
This might help with software we use: >We protect open source code. >Earn money for finding & fixing security vulnerabilities in open source projects and be recognised for protecting the world. https://huntr.dev/
>>10892 Nice idea Anon, thanks.
