/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

The Mongolian Tugrik has recovered its original value thanks to clever trade agreements facilitated by Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh throat singing at Xi Jinping.

Robowaifu Propaganda and Recruitment Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 05:39:42 No.2705 [Reply] [Last]
Attention drawfags and writefags! Your skills will be needed. The task of building and designing a robowaifu is a herculean quest. As great as this community is, /robowaifu/ simply does not have the manpower to real our goal of DIY robowaifus. Luckily for us there are several communities on the internet that we could find new recruits or allies to help us build our waifus: MGTOW - These guys know all about the legal pitfalls of marriage and the dangers of feminism. There is already a lot of talk about sex robots in MGTOW communities. It shouldn't be a hard sell to get them to come here. Incels - Guys that can't get laid. The opportunity for love and companionship should be enough to bring some of these guys over. We need to be careful when recruiting from some of their communities. We don't want to attract negative attention. Monster girls/furry/mlp fandoms - The only way these guys are going to be able to have their harpy/elf/goblin/anthro/pony/whatever gf is with a robowaifu. They have an interest in seeing us succeed. Again we need to be careful here not to attract the wrong kind of people that will bring us the wrong kind of attention. Male STEM students - Generally these guys aren't going to get laid until after they have established themselves. A robowaifu could really help them. This may be a harder sell because many of them have been brainwashed in university, but they have skills that we could really use. Transhumanists/biohackers - Many of the technologies involved in building a robowaifu could be used in transhumanist or biohacking applications such as building an avatar. They may have some interest in helping us out. We will need to be careful which transhumanist communities we go after as many of them are full of feminism, tumblr tier sexualities and genders, and SJW's. Cyberpunks and technophiles - These guys (and they are usually guys) are all around into technology and may just enjoy working on the kinds of projects we need to do. They are often into programming and AI.

>>7685 >Don't do anything illegal mate. LOL wise advice. But that's another thing that appeals to me about /robowaifu/. No illegal stuff (although obvs I have to get permission to put up posters and pamphlets rather than just fly post). Before I found out about this board I frequented 8kun and 4chan. Both of them were full of people acting like fanatical Neo Nazis, the Khmer Rouge or just the clinically insane. A few people wanted to hoard canned food, grow their own veg and arm themselves to the teeth so they could live the rest of their lives in a bunker, but that's about the most creativity I saw. Lots of memes, rage and depression. Very few solutions.
>>7694 Being upset about politics all the time can be damaging. They don't discuss solutions anyways. It's only wasting time and being angry. Which can have effects on how well to learn stuff or getting upset about problems much faster, because they're just the icing on the cake of worries. So yeah it's better to focus on tech and watching anime to relax. "Entertainment" which is to much driven by permanent conflicts between people also only increases stress. It can't be good to have that the whole time. There's a reason why watching 'My Little Pony' became popular among hackers or other IT guys. They need to relax and have some distance to the world. Btw, I just delayed working on some code for more than seven hours, because I had so enough of it, only to find the solution for the last problem I had with it in literally less than 20sec.
>>7696 Well that is good to hear, anon. Hope it gets you closer to your goals! Just goes to show how important rest is for the human brain.
>>7696 >Btw, I just delayed working on some code for more than seven hours, because I had so enough of it, only to find the solution for the last problem I had with it in literally less than 20sec. More than once, I've literally woken up from bed with the correct answer to a coding problem at my fingertips when I got on the editor, and even for other issues in life as well. You can often hear the answer being given to you if you're doing the right thing and get quiet. And be patient about it too. I second the other anon's advice about giving yourself some rest when you're constantly struggling for a solution to something. Taking a break from it for a bit can actually be important to finding the right answer for things.
>>7687 Heh, cute idea but the basic point is to not emulate that now-degenerate symbology. Find something that evokes the beauty of the mythological Venus in a readily understandable icon at a glance. Think Botticelli's Birth of Venus, mate.

Building the ultimate waifu. Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 08:06:26 No.246 [Reply]
For shits and giggles, let's discuss what we would do to build our ultimate robowaifu in an age wherein synthetic flesh is already a thing and we're closer and closer to AI.
34 posts and 8 images omitted.
>>7642 What you have described is another reason why I just decided to build my robowaifu from scratch. Basically I figure that if the corporations are intent on commercialising and fucking everything up then I won't buy their products; I'll just make my own! I'd had enough of advertisements, pay-to-win and game marketplaces that are heavily censored and controlled by a bunch of pansy-ass PR executives. Consequently, I don't game nearly as much as I used to. The last videogame I played was Doom Eternal, which was a blast. It was short but sweet. I really hope Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't turn into some DLC fuckfest where 75% of the game is unplayable or only partly playable unless you've purchased half-a-dozen expansion packs!
>>7653 That's a great list Anon. I'll pass on the eat/excrete haha but will breathing out warm air be good enough? You're definitely correct that goals begin with vision, and achievements begin with goals. So, it all starts with our imaginations! Then comes the 99% perspiration haha
>>7666 It can be a long term thing, like a great life work or magnum opus Some of the goals can be realized before others and then eventually (it being modular) it might get finalized
>>7667 >like a great life work or magnum opus You. I like you Anon. I wouldn't personally be doing this at all if I didn't consider it a great achievement when we all succeed together at this. I would that more young men in our increasingly-corrupted Western Civilization could find something worthy of a life's-pursuit. Godspeed to /robowaifu/ during this approaching Christmas season. >=== -minor prose edit

A.I. Masters Proteomics Robowaifu Enthusiast 12/02/2020 (Wed) 11:01:13 No.7458 [Reply]
Google Deepmind's "Alphafold 2" machine learning program has gotten very accurate at predicting how a protein will fold into it's tertiary structure just by analysing it's amino acid sequence. Of course, the amino acid sequence is linked to the mRNA molecules, which is directly encoded by DNA and genes. This could be big, guys. I remember when I was at Uni and one of the most experienced biochem professors there said that whoever manages to solve proteomics will become "the closest thing to a God on this Earth". Because it cracks the code of how the majority of organic life is assembled. Not sure whether this should go in the thread about artificial wombs or organic brains for robowaifus, but this advancement could have BIG implications for things like growing whole organs from scratch, developing drugs that are tailored to each patient (and, of course biogenetic weapons such as an engineered virus that only kills a particular person or genetic group). https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-03348-4 Looks like A.I. saves the day just as I'd given up hope on humans ever making any more big scientific advancements!

>>7478 >called "Cyborgs & Organic Computing" That's not 'catch all enough', not general enough. We don't have that much going on with cyborgs, for good reasons. I wrote something to the potential problems with cyborg development here: >>7456 The most likely uses of organic material in near future will be water kefir in the saliva of the fembots, or generally something on their body parts to keep organisms at bay which could be harmful to the owner or the bot materials. Pheromones are also a thing, though we probably won't be able to create organisms which produce them, idk. Biohackers exist. So maybe this is not related and a topic of it's own. But, well it's human biology, so it could go into a thread related to biology general.
Just spitballing here. Since crossovers are so common in anime or otherwise, what if we included that concept in the subject. RobowaifuXBiology nahh. bad idea probably but w/e.

>>13679 I looked into it out of curiosity. I knew this can't be real or normal. It's not my job to solve such things, but I found this: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2648487?hl=en - which explains how sites that link to one's website can be disavowed. So one doesn't need to go around to request link removals from other sites. This is normally for link farms and such, but we only had one link to that website. I wonder if this website here is flagged as bad / 'low quality' by Google or if they go after image boards in general. Either way its outrageous but also not surprising. We are the technological spearhead of the manosphere and of humanity as a whole. I request this whole topic to be moved to the basement in some time, since it is OT and now resolved. Please don't go on discussing it here.

Proto1 All Parts Robowaifu Enthusiast 10/31/2020 (Sat) 22:16:00 No.6323 [Reply]
Fully printed, it is quite the chonker. Two heavy duty servos (110kg.cm torque or greater. 12 to 24 volt) in the shoulder. Two 60kg.cm servos (DS5160SSG) in the bicep Five 20kg.cm servos (PDI-6221MG) to move the forearm and fingers. One micro-servo in the palm to drive the thumb.
31 posts and 13 images omitted.
>>7004 Wow, that's quite an improvement you've made there Anon. If you keep going on like this, you apparently will come up with a state-of-the-art robowaifu arm/hand design. Go, go, go! :^) >finger-burners I'm unfamiliar with that concept?
>>7006 LOL I noticed that while the rest of my servos operated normally, these would just heat up where the 555 timer is. One of them even melted through the external casing. So to prevent them getting too hot, I hold a finger over the bottom every time I test them. Hence the "finger burner". This happens even at just 5V so not sure what the problem is. Just a helluva lot of resistance and heat coming from somewhere in the servo driver circuit. Gears move okay when checked manually.
Great work, and thanks for sharing. I looked up the servos in the forearm: http://www.jx-servo.com/en/Product/STANDARD/SD/555.html Did you or the original creator consider to put them in a line, so the arm would be thinner and longer? Is there a reason not to do that? They are circa 4x2x4 cm, so five would be 20 cm, which is a bit much, but four would fit that way. Also, how much will the fingers then be able to hold and lift? How is it calculated, considering they're connected to strings? Seem to be quite strong...
>>7011 My pleasure anon! The original creator (Ryan Gross) positioned the forearm servos like that because the next part up the arm is another 20kg.cm servo which connects to the back of the forearm case (effectively the wrist is above the forearm rather than below). You could change it so that the 4 servos are all in a line, but you need a gap between each servo for the mounting tabs+wires. By all means download the Protolite arm from Sophie's file repository and experiment with the .f3d file in Fusion360, but I reckon you'll end up with overly long forearms. TBH I am still working on shortening and downscaling the joints because the rest of the arm is still too long for the size of my robowaifu. She's only a little lady, but then that makes her parts easier and cheaper to prototype.
>>7023 Oh yeah. The hands can definitely hold light things like cups, a comb, a toothbrush etc. I have to find some rubber pads for her palm and I'm going to squeeze silicone caulk on the inside of the fingers to make the hand more grippy. Then hopefully she will be able to hold heavier things such as my socket wrench. The "ligament" material is BZS monofilament 40lb (18.4kg) clear fishing line. It is very strong, stronger than the ligaments in my own fingers. So it's just the weakness of PLA biopolymer coupled with the relatively small size and torque rating of the forearm servos that limit grip strength. If you were to 3D Print the forearm in ABS or Nylon and maybe scale it up 20% or so, you could definitely fit more powerful servos in. Then your robowaifu would have an iron grip!

Fluffytail 800 dev thread Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:38:41 No.364 [Reply] [Last]
I figured would be good time to start a thread on this type of robowaifu. If I don't do this I will keep flip-flopping on specs and won't get anything done.
I'll be relying on the open source contributions of other teams and want to give back wherever I can (maybe even interchangeable parts). Thus I finally (hopefully) set on the 80cm specification or 800mm robot, which is exactly a 5'3" woman in 1/2 scale. Being a catgirl with big boobs will hopefully offer a level of protection, since she is technically an adult catgirl despite the size. There's so much potential for very different robowaifu designs, but I'm being a bit conservative for my first endeavor, for no other reason than I don't see any standard anime catgirl robot projects out there.
So here she is, the Fluffytail 800. I posted a 1000 concept before and I might make a Fluffytail 1500 later on, but I think if I manage to get this right I can stay with this size.
Based on my favorite "Worst Girls" in anime, the Fluffytail 800 can handle abuse. Although inspired and patterned after exquisite Japanese ball jointed dolls, this is no fragile sculpture. Built for robustness using mostly high impact hard plastic, she should be able to satisfy millions of ricecels and currycels living in high humidity shitholes the third world over. She'll feel just at home whether it's in your house, your trailer, your pickup truck, or at the trash heap.
She will be a plastic model kit with no sexual features out of the box, with some cheap electronics thrown in. No warranty, but the end user should be able to customize and fix her up later on depending on his skill. I will try to find some onahole and silicone suppliers that will offer optional soft tits torso and vaginal insert…it might be that I'll need a supplier local to the country that she'll be sold in, so that she can be imported as a mere doll kit and not as a sex toy.
- cheap electronics (arduino or similar, she'll be dumber than a celphone)
- available physical ports or bluetooth / wifi to connect to an external computer (i.e. if you want her to be able to follow you and other basic AI)
- limited interaction, her only utterances are "Nyaa. Nyaa? Nyaa!" Maybe an upgrade will add a few spoken lines such as "Thank you.", "Follow your dreams", and "Do you want a hug?"
- facial expressions are just blank, tilting head, yandere and ahegao. I'll try to incorporate eyes-always-forward tech that removes a lot of the uncanny feel of robot heads.
- Cannot walk, but she can crawl and flail around.
- (Most importantly) she can hug.
- (With sex parts upgrade) she will be able to suck dick
- tons of LEDs. Not only her heart-shaped eyes, but sidestrips, her hair clips, even her fucking vaginal area has LED backlighting that displays an arrival pattern similar to Audi's matrix LED lights.
- chastity lock: access to her removable vagina module will be password protected (I have a feeling the high-tech optional vagina module will cost as much as if not more than the main doll herself)
Estimated SRP: $500-$800 just for the doll, $500+ for the silicone / vaginal upgrade

>>5811 How many cores of my Raspi3 would be occupied by that?!? I have two of them, soon maybe also a Raspi4 or Jetson Nano. Then you could have one of the Raspies os so. That aside, stuff like that is rather being done in datacenters. Alone our energy costs would be higher than theirs. Then, it would also depend who would be asking for it and how serious this was. Huggingface vs some anon on a imageboard... Next issue would be, that the GPT approach has always been critizised, and now it seems to be done: >>5799
>>5814 >How many cores of my Raspi3 would be occupied by that The Broadcom chips inside RPis actually have a pretty decent GPU for the power it consumes (low-power). Someone would have to create a system that could use that in a practical way for processing AI loads. So if someone solves that, then your GPU would be maxed pretty much (you'd want a heat sink kit for it), but the cores load could be kept to just one of the 4 available cores. >Alone our energy costs would be higher than theirs. I kind of think it's the other way around, but that aside the whole point of donating compute is that each of us bear a small(ish) part of the hardware and electricity costs. Together if there are enough of us doing that can represent a total system far larger than any of us individually is likely to afford. >trust Yes, we'd need to have both a well-written description of the goal (each project for folding@home has something like this for example), and then some mechanism for accountability in the beginning would be essential as well, IMO. Once a robowaifu@home system was up and running, and good AI results are coming from it for everyone, then I think that would speak pretty clearly all on it's own.
>>5812 Work requests could be posted somewhere online with the code and training data and the results uploaded to anonfiles or somewhere else. I think we're still a long way from doing any sort of distributed computing though. An easy way to do transfer learning needs to be made first, otherwise we'll just be training models from scratch again and again or getting stuck on a performance plateau, rather than adapting and evolving as new AI techniques come out and everything rapidly changes.
>>5816 >>5817 There's plenty of free and open source software for distributed computing like this available, making them execute TF training should not be too complex of a task. Package that into a container that has no filesystem acces and that runs through tor or something similar and we would have a start of a solution. Some of the software options run through a custom screensaver so we could even make it robowaifu themed.
>>5852 >Package that into a container that has no filesystem acces and that runs through tor or something similar and we would have a start of a solution. Yes, that's an interesting idea. If we can simplify that to the point it's easily security-auditable this approach might just work.

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.

>>4357 What is Chobits?
>>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
