sauce on pics?
>>3408 I believe they're from a project called "smart doll".
>>366 Some of the items in the playlists are simply amazing OP. I'd like to breakdown some of them for us. I think they'd really contribute to the board.
>"Ready for Youtube censorship…" Lel, OK brickintheyard.com moves to the front of the queue for evaluation
>>3411 Unfortunately they don't pass the TOR test, so no. :P
>>3409 Nah, those are custom dollfies, the smart doll has different shapes and skin tones.
>>3410 Most defiantly! I'm trying to wrap my head around how a lot of it works mechanically. That way I can try implement a variation of the more advanced projects after I've built my initial prototype.
>>3414 I've been wondering how to implement eyeball gimbals and eyelids for a while. Can't wait till we are prototyping this ourselves.
>>3415 Eyes are so important they probably warrant their own thread.

]]3206 >The more I research the scale of a humanoid companion, the more I realise it'll take the ideas of many Robowaifu Technicians to complete the project. That's definitely truth. Someone once said "None of us is as smart as all of us." In some way, we are kind of like the earliest hackers of personal computers. Search 'Homebrew Computer Club'. This is literally frontier work here. In 20 years robowaifus will be commonplace but definitely aren't right now. It's kind of like lots of anons around the world are all working towards this goal and we all get to define an entire new industry from the ground up. Pretty neat actually.

not exactly waifu related, but interesting here https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=8vIT2da6N_o
>>3430 Awesome video man, appreciate it.
Video I found of some guy's Robo Waifu project. Unfortunately his website/forum www.anime2real.com is down so I can't access any of the treasures that were once there. I can't even find an archive. Funny enough, it was this dead project that lead to my new obsession with robotics and software. So even if it's primitive, I really do take joy from seeing his hard work. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=Fh2lbESw374
>>3432 we must re-locate this anon, obviously.
>>3433 Good idea anon. I found him on Twitter and Facebook so I'm just gonna send the guy a link to the board.
Awesome Eye Mechanism and Application into a Head. This is the design I plan to use for my head's eyes. Once I'm on holiday in a month or so I should have the time to learn Blender and 3D print the frame whilst working on other projects. If I build something good, I'll upload the files and post a tutorial for other anons. I'm thinking of combining this with the OLED eye system to get something awesome. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=8XREW9Vp4w8
>>3435 >>3436 Thank you nice design idea there anon.
>>3436 It looks like he used the same two servos to move the eyes, but two separate servos to move the eyelids. So this robot could wink but not cross its eyes.
>>3438 Exactly! Also, the eye movement is a lot more natural because of how the wires are attached to the eyes. So unless someone's fetish is being cross-eyed this rig will give us a very high quality outcome with minimal complexity. Mind you, for the sake of ahegao I may be… forced to remove the cross support so both eyes can move independent of each other.

>>3443 It's a good design, especially using shrink-wrap in place of springs and wires. The only problem I see with it is how it bends when working, so a metal or stronger plastic alternative would be needed for the base.
A more primitive version of >>3444 made by some Japanese fella. It's still cool though, it illustrates why OLED/LED eyes with actual eyelids is superior to just an animation. Creators Twitter: https://twitter.com/joker1_ >missing filename: 試着の結果.mp4
>>3446 Yes, I completely agree that for this type of form-factor real eye behaviors are essential to expressing a comfy psyche for our robowaifus. Pure Visual Waifus notwithstanding ofc. Then practically anything goes as long as it adheres to the animation Principle of Appeal.
>>3423 A couple more DS Doll videos I really love.

>>3449 On the topic of DS Doll, it appears that they're using hydraulics for the arms. Might be something for us to look into.
>>3449 Interesting tbh. As I see it, the primary issue with hydraulics is that many of these oils are at least partly toxic to a degree, and the maintenance and management of fluids in a mobile system are dubious at best tbh. Still, it does afford the possibility of (super)human-tier strength levels in a mobile platform using current technology. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is one of the established goals in the Welcome to /Robowaifu/ bread. So yea.
>>3449 >2nd vid dat countdown doe >implying implications kek
>>3449 >3rd Almost ready to climb out of the Uncanny Valley imo.
>>3449 Last point Fotamon, that is a remarkably well-articulated endoskeleton as well. >Any sauces other than the incredibly-pozzed Twatter though?
>>3451 >and the maintenance and management of fluid systems in a mobile platform*
>>3451 Hydraulics can be made in a completely sealed system without worrying about the oils. Yes, you could in theory build a super strong waifu, she'd just be power hungry. You only start to save money compared to gear motors at very high strengths. It seems like an interesting and exciting prospect but, it's very expensive and finicky. Also, tends to have jerky movements. Fantastic for heavy industry where something stronger then pneumatics is needed and the increase in cost is warranted. For waifus, yes, you can make her with very slim cylinders but, you're honestly better off using your motors that would drive the hydraulics to just drive cabling. Cables transfer torque more efficiently anyways. I haven't the slightest idea of why they would use hydraulics. Then again I've only used hydraulics industrially, maybe they're found some way to mitigate its inefficiency? Using a regulated internal engine would give them good run times at the expense of increased complexity, need for regular check ups, and she'd need to drink gas. She'd also small like an engine. Overall, unless you're very rich with access to your own manufacturing equipment, hydraulics isn't the best idea. Pneumatics would be better if you're going to try to lower costs. Though, gear motors are honestly the best. (I have built, troubleshooted, and repaired hydraulic/pneumatic systems. Hydraulics were a pain in my ass, so I'm a tad biased against them. Loved working with pneumatics though.)
>>3457 >using your motors that would drive the hydraulics to just drive cabling Genius. Kiwi, you may very well have found the sweet spot of strength/price/performance.
>>3454 They have a website and YouTube account but they have a lot fewer videos on them. So Twatter is our best bet if we wanna stalk their progress. >>3457 It's a recent change they've made. I assume they're either saving money with hydraulics, wanted a sleeker looking demo model, or ran into a problem with cables and gears.
>>3459 >So Twatter is our best bet if we wanna stalk their progress. I feel you on this. Proceed kind sir.
>>3449 Nice skeletal design but I think most of those plastic parts are aesthetic. Seems they were going for cyberpunk. On the other hand, would be great to have a more steampunk internal skeleton, I would definitely love my waifu to look like a clockwork doll when you open her up, especially if she were wearing a maid outfit. I think I'll just need to use brown/silver/gold colored plastics and go Rococo even if it's really just a waste of material.
>>3461 > would definitely love my waifu to look like a clockwork doll when you open her up, especially if she were wearing a maid outfit. >i can only get so erect.mov STOP. Just shut up and take my money anon.
>>3461 It's definitely possible, check out what Disney did. >missing filename: DISNEY’S NEW ANIMATRONICS.mp4
>>3463 While I find the character design itself somewhat loathsome, the technical aspect of the animatronic is remarkable tbh. I particularly like how parts of the structural system are themselves and form basically a 'metamaterial' similar to what anon mentioned here ]]3286
>>3464 >are themselves flexible*
Awesome robot hand in early stages of development. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=Kfh8puOPiTk
>>3466 That is actually pretty interesting anon.
>>3426 a realdoll that can look you in the eye while fucking
>>3466 i challenge anyone to create a robotic hand that can grab your dick and jerk it off until completion.
I believe this video and the 3D model are a part of this >>3446 project. >missing filename: 9-7N_wWTwfy8LCos_(1).mp4
>>3471 Nice to see these new views of it. Certainly looks similar. It occurs to me that it's always good for us to see projects at all phases of development not just at the finished stage. Helps us see and understand the progression better.
>>3471 Cutest robo face, any way to get his step files or STL's?
>>3473 You can always ask him. His Twitter: https://twitter.com/Spri_ta I literally got Twitter to follow these projects, so I'd encourage you to follow these projects there for updates.

This is the best anime style blinking project I've ever been able to find. The eyelids are a MASSIVE obstacle we're going to have to overcome if we want a more realistic anime style waifu.

A website containing a trove of sex robot projects with links to the creators. http://dollautomation.com/index.php/category/robotic/page/3/
This creator seems to be on a whole nother level. The original was ST-00 which passed Robo One qualifications. This one can dance along with MMD. https://twitter.com/med_mahiro
>>3483 Damn, that's some smooth movements, it looks very fluid. I'm honestly surprised he managed to get it to such a high quality.
>>3483 Any chance you could convey a sense of his work to us here on /robowaifu/ anon? I'm not going to click on Twatter.
This Rem bot has literally been around for a year, not sure if anyone knew already. Who was the Rem fan here? http://www.mthung.com/ >>3485 streamable okay? https://streamable.com/bcdhs
>>3486 >streamable okay? Sure that's fine. That's pretty remarkable. I suppose there's some sort of Bowden-cable like arrangement inside the limbs?
>>3483 >Robo One qualifications Had to look that up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robo_One
>>3483 A little older video showing the system inside the shell. Not much detail tbh, would really like to see some good engineering breakdowns. Translated to English would be ideal ofc. https://streamable.com/gvwvq
>>3483 Neat. Now if only he could scale it up.
>>3422 Who cares about details like that?. As long as they can clean, cook and have a onahole build in, it done.
>>3492 pretty sure having some kind of emotional interaction with your robowaifu will long-term be more valuable than just an over-sized masturbation tool anon.
I found this in my old files, but I can't remember where I got this from. >missing filename: MAID ROBOT OH FUCK.jpg
>>3494 It's located on this site, but can't find out any details about it there unfortunately. maybe someone else can. http://kgm84.egloos.com/m/2544788
this korean guy turns out to be a real fanatic for robots of all kinds, and has a number of posts about robowaifus too. http://kgm84.egloos.com/3263089
Guess I'm back to casually sharing more cool robotics projects. If anyone finds any, please share them here. This one some of you will recognize from the thread, it's the sex robot from DS Doll. They've changed her quite a bit and have some funny videos of her on their YouTube channel. >missing filename: Valentines_Day_Sale_at_DS_Doll_Robotics!.mp4
It would seem that companies (and Robowaifu Technicians) in general are too focused on the face. Most the projects I find focus a lot on it despite it not being that important. Why hasn't a single builder gotten us a robo-waifu that can snuggle with us? Probably because faces take a lot of time and money. >missing filenames: Emma_AI_sex_robot_for_Sale_%E2%80%94_Real_love_sex_doll_tr.mp4 NEXT_GENERATION_AI_SEX_ROBOT_DOLLS.mp4
>>3497 That's a pretty interesting bodyframe. Know of any technical diagrams of it anon? >>3498 TBH, we're all hardwired literally from birth to be tightly focused on the faces of those around us, so it's a natural and honest drive. However, as our fascination with cute anime waifus shows, you can definitely manage an affection towards a female character whose face is plainly not fully human. I'd say this is a common theme here on /robowaifu/ now. The 'cute waifus, not slutbots' approach. The Uncanny Valley is very real, and is still a long way off from being solved. And even when if? it does get solved, it will be very expensive for the first generation or two to recoup R&D costs.
>>3499 Afraid not, all I know is that it's made by DS Doll and they've a lot of videos showing off their technology. See these posts below for more videos or search them on YouTube. Also please let me know if you find any technical plans, I love to get my hands on them. >>3449 >>3423 Speaking of robo-cuties. I've been considering the idea of using soft-robots alongside my 3D printer to build a basic waifu that can crudely snuggle with you. Unfortunately, I'd have to prototype at a adult scale for legality's sake (more expensive), and my lack of experience. I don't even know if it's worth trying. Probably would do me more good to just release robo-waifu propaganda in the form of video games instead. Especially considering my roommates lol.
>>3500 Thanks anon, will do. >that can crudely snuggle with you We have at least one daki bread and the notion is fairly popular here and elsewhere. Maybe something like that? I don't know what to tell you about your roommates haha, I'm in the same boat. Eventually I think I'm just not going to worry about what others think about it. The obvious failure of Western women to their societies has made the robowaifu-pill an obvious choice for millions of men tbh. It seems inevitable atp.

>>3501 I'm still larping as vanilla in case my true power level could affect my future career prospective and/or damage my relationship with my family. Anyways, I think those electric muscles are a long way off. Although they'll be selling kits in Q2 2019 which might be interesting if we can replicate them or buy them on the cheap. https://www.artimusrobotics.com/product I'm more so considering air-muscles at this point. It looks relatively simple in concept. I didn't know air pumps could be so quiet so the prototypes can just have the majority of the tubes outside the body. Once we have a basic working humanoid (sit, cuddle, fidget, maybe move arms). An effort can be made in hiding such technology inside the waifu; but the battery is still a problem in such a case so I dunno. I'd be happy with a glorified torso and head tbh if it was done well enough, then add arms for cuddling, maybe pretending to play vidya, etc. BTW, there's a tutorial on how to build this muscle system. Might be a cheaper and easier alternative than servos and whatnot. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-air-muscles!/ >missing filename: Large Air Muscle.mp4
>>3510 >https://www.artimusrobotics.com/product Thanks for the heads up anon. They look like a good team, I hope they can manage a mass-producible product we could actually use as hobbyists. Yes, I think pneumatics are a reasonable possibility, much more so than hydraulics. They are widely used in the Dark Ride animatronics industry, but they are in fact still noisy. But for the exact same reasons they work in that field, they would also work in robowaifus. As far as just an upper body goes it would in fact be much easier to manage the development of but ofc it's not fuggable. Anon's little moebot-tier robowaifu project ]]4637 is appealing enough an idea and shows that some robowaifus can be just for huggs, not for fuggs. Thanks for the instructables link anon.
The future is now fellas >missing filename: 27C6F6sm6jnfrLzz.mp4
>>3512 >"And Baby Upchuck can can make real baby puke. Just fill her water tank and she can vomit on demand!" kekd that bodyframe looks interesting anon, sauce?
We need IRL Drossel.
Seriously, I hate the whole "uncanny valley" idea designers have. If I want to fuck a robogirl, I wanna fuck an actual robogirl, not some creepy doll. I want some IRL Tsugu-min, not the "I feel fantastic" mannequin.
>>3514 >>3515 I think we're all onboard with this for the present anon. I would love to have a robowaifu mostly indistinguishable from a beautiful young woman, but that's not going to happen anytime soon, so for now cute irl animu catgrill meidos in tiny mini skirts are our best option–and will be a fun alternative even in the future.
>>3515 >Tsugu-min Is she a robowaifu? Care to post some pics of her with context in the 'RWs in Media' bread if so?
>>3517 She's the robogirl you play as in Contra: ReBirth, but she's fairly obscure, as little art of her exists.
>>3513 https://twitter.com/tibadollkoubou It's a doll some Japanese guy is building. Nothing electrical, however it apparently has a good range of motion; so there's the potential to add some actuators.
>>3519 Thanks anon, some good references there. He is obviously very dedicated and I wouldn't be surprised if he could be convinced to take the robowaifu-pill tbh.
Found this campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/doetherobot/iris-secure-affordable-and-offile-social-robot/ It's an Rpi-based offline robot, I like the philosophy of the creator, the opposite of what a robot envisioned by a corporation would be. Seems very fitting for my purpose, I could use this as a base to expand upon. I hope they succeed.
>>3521 Yea an anon has been saying here since the beginning we should let the characterization of our robowaifus allow for the fact they are, in fact, robots. That it would be endearing in fact to have them acknowledge their mistakes in this context. Seems like this developer intends to take a similar approach. Thanks for the link anon. I also like his plans for both interacting with it and programming it. I wish him luck.
http://age-of-aincrad.com/forum/threads/android-2-flugel-3d-printing-robotics.3984/ Someone was planning to make an IRL drossel. It was cool, but the model he used was shit. I'm planning to have a project where one guy edits the model to accommodate servos and shit, one guy 3d prints/CNCs the parts (aluminum and silicone will be very important), one guy attaches the electronics, and one guy installs the AI. We will obviously need better models, and since the only models easily downloadable are Charming models (which while cute, will be fucking impossible because of her lack of feet). We may have to employ the unholy wizard known as ADR, because while he is a dickgirl loving nigger, he has good models that can be edited to accommodate electronics.
>>3523 Sounds like a plan anon. Please start an independent project thread when you've assembled all the details for an OP.
This guy makes and sells his own 3D printed moebot clang waifus called Automoiselles, very good reference for mechanical designs. https://twitter.com/OrzTaki https://takirunn.booth.pm/ I've been on this forum long enough that I'm graduating from 2-3 to 4 and maybe even 5-6 on the clang scale.
>>3525 Very cute, thanks for the links anon. >I've been on this forum long enough that I'm graduating from 2-3 to 4 and maybe even 5-6 on the clang scale. kekd <ywn having a starship-class, disembodied AI robowaifu ;~;
>>3525 I like the idea of using screws for the joints seen here and on the EOS smart daughter Found a lot of similar kits/figures as well on Japan twitter.
>>3527 I searched for eos smart daughter and wow what a treasure trove of mechanical and biomechanical designs: https://megasuculpture.jimdo.com/
>>3528 The "hitogata" image is really cute. I remember one guy saying that robowaifus could be really relatable if they were made conscious of their robotic nature, and I think this can also be applied to their designs.
Another brother of humanoid robotics has returned after years of nothing. The guy's making an advanced humanoid, here's his latest video where he's testing a new limb joint actuator.. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=I9EPkoC35gY
>>3530 I messed up, here's the newest video. He reminds me of an 90s animu mad scientist with all his fancy retro gadgets . Check him out! https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=uH-7HPS45DY
Advanced humanoid hand builder and designer explaining how it works, what he learned and what went wrong. TL;DR - it looks awesome but working hands are incredibly complex and should be an afterthought. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=l6xqTcLXXC8
Ford's bipedal robot also looks very promising. Much more streamlined than Atlas. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=ghmmYQlFNbo
Fluid Humanoid Robot. This actually looks really awesome and gets me excited for the future of wheelchair bound robot-waifus. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=h3Svu--qmeY
>>3534 $26,000 hmm? Well, still cheaper than alimony.
Many of these I do find the faces to be a bit disconcerting, but what's under the skin is absolutely amazing. We can't be more than a decade away from factory produced robowaifus.
I really like the LED eyes in >>3419 so that gets me thinking, until we get it to the point where the facial movements and materials are conducive to really kissing your waifu would it be easier to use a contoured display for a face? That would allow for full accurate representation of your 2D waifu as depicted in media as well as simplifying and reducing the cost of one of the most complicated and expensive portions of the robot.
>>3537 Yeah, that's what I was thinking or we just go higher on the >>>/clang/ scale until technology catches up.
Probably the most convincing humanoid I've seen motion-wise. That could almost be mistaken for a real dude wearing a mask. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=u6iVUgKNJy8
another vid showing the insides https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=5qteMlMAaNM
>>3540 those animatronics look familiar, if I recall the arms, torso, and head are all maneuvered by cables. This may just be a puppet with cleverly hidden strings. If it is self actuated though then this is an even more impressive design.
>>3541 I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why the servo hum is barely audible, at that size it's supposed to be all you can hear. I was going to post another find, vid related, stop motion convinces me that the articulation in a typical anime action figure is enough, just need a way to swap out face plates and hand positions on the fly. https://streamable.com/eg6m7
>>3530 >>3531 >>3532 >>3533 >>3534 >>3539 >>3540 >>3542 thanks for the videos anons. i'm particularly glad to see Alexander Bersenev picking up his robot laboratory work again.

>>3544 http://speecys.com/ Ex-Sony Aibo engineer. Very legit, the only problem is it looks expensive (only renting to businesses for now, and all those patents).
>>3544 Thanks for the link anon. I assume everyone notices the entire thing is supported on a crane boom from the back, probably heavy af. Nice to see it though.
>>3547 Yeah, most of these kinds of robots are. It makes me optimistic for a decade in the future though. I just hope 30+ year-old me has nether impregnated and been trapped by 3dpd or lost my desire for a robo companion. Fuck knows what'll happen to any of us between now and then.
OK, Fotamon. Sorry but that's all I have bro. Hopefully we can recover some of these video files at some point. Cheers mate. :^)
>>3502 Since the main instance seems to be having issues atm, here's an alternate onion that seems in good health: http://axqzx4s6s54s32yentfqojs3x5i7faxza6xo3ehd4bzzsg2ii4fv2iid.onion/playlist?list=PLAtoHywa4Q2Nc_-r5g1bHlHdcnGJ3oM-4
>>3549 Appreciated! I got a lot of crap due over the next week but will see about dumping what extra files I still have into the thread when I get the chance. :)
>>3552 Sounds like a plan, take your time no hurry. GOOD LUCK WITH EXAMS
>>3550 hmm, i wonder if it had anything to do with google's recent captcha-defeat changes?https://github.com/omarroth/invidious/issues/1183
Apparently you had saved pretty much every post in the thread. This thread actually contains more robowaifu projects than I had saved to my HD. So that worked out pretty well.
>>3739 Hi Fotamon, how did exams go? Heh, I do have most of the content from the board apart from 8 threads or so where I'll have to rely on the archives pages. If you have any of the files marked with >missing filename: please post them ITT. I tried to determine the original filename so you might be able to find it in your filepile simply by searching that. Good luck with the job hunt bro. First gig out of school is always a big one! :^)
>>3500 >Unfortunately, I'd have to prototype at a adult scale for legality's sake (more expensive) She only has to not be anatomically correct, like having bigger eyes, maybe some arm showing its a robot. Hip/waist ratio and face proportions might also help.
Look what I've found while looking for models of female torsos on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:833163 Some guy with his own fembot project. Video was deleted by YouTube...

>>3476 This guy is on Twitter: @missile_39 and @adachirei0 And here is his webpage, last update was last year: http://mechanical-girl.seesaa.net/ And also with more pics: https://camp-fire.jp/projects/12475/activities/132053?s=09#main
>>5361 Wow that's impressive actually. Obviously a mad-scientist at work Terry would be proud. :^)
>>5361 I remember when this guy built a life-size singing Hatsune Miku using what looked like some kind of high-density styrofoam attached to servos and steel hinges. Good to see he has adopted 3D printing now as well. Inspirational stuff!
>>5371 Just a guess, but the pink material looks a lot like some kind of foam, or near-enough. Still, if it's that same guy glad to see he's still at it. He became a minor sensation and made some spending money taking his Miku-chan robowaifu around and just showing her off IIRC.
>>5378 Pink? You mean the whole shell in very light brown or sand colored? This one is clearly 3d printed. Or were you referring to something in the Miku build video: >>3475 Didn't watch that (yet).

>>5413 Yeah that's pretty adorable. The guy has a good sense of character animation obviously. Thanks Anon.
Immervision is talking about a humanoid robot, named Joyce, coming out of the computer vision community. I understood one part of the article so that she would soon be available as a set to be build. However, haven't seen anything about it yet. On the site I only found the claim: "Soon, JOYCE’s programming interface will made available to the computer vision community to run experiments and upgrade her capabilities." I understand it so, that they want to show her the first time on some summit soon (might be cancelled bc Covid). Maybe the parts are freely available, and how to rebuild her will be explained after release. Otherwise it's just one more Sophia (Hanson Robotics). I also wonder how she's going to look like: "Joyce comes equipped with three ultra-wide-angle panomorph cameras calibrated to give 2D hemispheric, 3D stereoscopic hemispheric, or full 360 x 360 spherical capture and viewing of the environment." Introduction video: https://youtu.be/1fyDJu5IxCA Article: https://www.eejournal.com/article/the-joyce-project-to-equip-machines-with-human-like-perception/ Homepage: https://www.immervision.com/joyce/ YT-channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/ImmerVision
>>5622 Thanks for the update Anon, please keep us posted about her. >Otherwise it's just one more Sophia (Hanson Robotics). I sort of hope not, tbh. What Hanson is doing with her is pretty sketchy IMO, and she isn't particularly appealing either.
>>5413 Segawa is selling STL files for Handmade Kibo-chan (link in video description) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJYUOxxDW4k Apparently it's been out for a month already (I was too busy being distracted by Vtubers to notice). Once I understand the mechanism -- part of why his animations are so smooth and lifelike -- I'm going to merge it with one of my wheeled or tank tread projects to make a wheeled Kibo-chan.
>>5744 >I'm going to merge it with one of my wheeled or tank tread projects to make a wheeled Kibo-chan. You must post videos of such cuteness here when you do!
>>5744 That is an interesting neck mechanism he's got there!

hamcat_mqq just updated after a yearlong hiatus on twitter. [machine-translated]"It's been a while, but it's completed! Wow Wow (Wow Wow ⌒▽⌒ ) Before I knew it, I forgot Twitter, Before I knew it, the cat that had been a year old was fine. To be honest, I can't see anything when I'm absorbed in it. Specifications Whole body seamless life-size doll Silicone skin / soft urethane foam Aluminum base Metal frame 150cm 12kg" More pics on his account, the nude pic there you can see his workshop. There have been 1/3 scale silicone animedolls before, as well as near-full-scale 90cm-100cm "stylized" sexdolls, as well as hard as rock fullscale waifu statues. IMHO this is actually the first time I've seen a fullscale silicone waifudoll.
>>7707 I love the work he's done on her eyes and eyelashes!

>>7707 Good find, but I think you can link to it via nitter.net: https://nitter.net/hamcat_mqq and pics might be okay if they don't show a lot of nude skin or if they're hidden. - The Skeleton is absolutely the right direction for better dolls, but also fembots with soft materials and any kind of artificial muscles... Amazing.
>>7707 >>7709 Thanks guys, wonderful stuff. Quite inspiring progress from him.

>>7712 He seem to have started the way I planned to do it, and so far didn't make it, with some differences. Using tubes and small ball joints is a great idea for the first model (pic 26), but knees and elbows in the human body aren't ball joints but hinges. That's something I would probably honor right from the start. The shoulder area is fascinating, and something to keep in mind, though. He seem to have moved away in his later designs. Also, some of his arm designs (pic 17&19) are freaking great. With these two bones to make them twist similar to real ones and also making the bones feel like real that way. Of course, one would need to find a way to move them with motors and/or muscles.
>>7719 oh, didn't look at the knees well enough before. They are actually way better than some simple ball joints.
>>7719 >Tibia and Fibula design Excellent. Biomemetics are really the way to go.
>>3521 > I hope they succeed. Agreed. Do you know of any progress on his project? Just in case you're following it.

>>7709 Can anyone tell me if these are some special, more advanced, ball joints? >hamcat https://nitter.pussthecat.org/hamcat_mqq/status/1359787760513503235#m Text is about how to mold them: >Molding method that I often do these days >Very convenient once you get used to it >Modeling and printing the prototype and formwork, pasting and masking on a clear file with double-sided tape, and finishing with silicon >Merit >Dramatic reduction in silicon consumption! >Can be recreated from the same formwork even if damaged"
>>7719 >Of course, one would need to find a way to move them with motors and/or muscles. What I've been thinking is that you could have thin metal cables snaked along the armature, maybe strategically fastened by guides at the joints, that could pull/pull the bones around from an internal centrally-located actuator arrays. Not only would this kind of mimic the actual human tendons, etc, but would also centralize much of the mass around the center of gravity in the robowaifu.
>>8604 It's good to have ideas and sharing them, but I'm quite sure actual muscles contract themselves. Airmuscles and maybe dielectric elastomers are more similar to them than tendons. I'll try to go with small motors in some bones, and then additional soft muscles. Not saying, your idea won't work, but winding tendons up and down might be slow and inflexible, for example.
>>8606 Anon just posted a video showing more or less my exact ideas, but scaled down to the hand & with the actuators out on the forearm. >>8632 My design notions have, as I mentioned, the actuators tucked away inside the torso. But otherwise this is an excellent example of the basic physics of the system.
