Open Simple Robot Maid (OSRM) Robowaifu Technician 07/11/2021 (Sun) 06:40:52 No.11446 [Reply] [Last]
Basic design for an open source low cost robowaifu maid. Currently attempting to make a maid that looks like Ilulu from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. Right now she's an RC car with two servo steering. Will share designs when they're a tad better. Ultimate goal is cute dragon maid waifu that rolls around and gently listens to you while holding things for you.

Why consider alternative CPU architectures for secure systems? Robowaifu Technician 07/25/2020 (Sat) 13:55:25 No.4506 [Reply] [Last]
Hello Anons, wanted to share some info and perhaps make you think about what you should compute with. x86/amd64 -Proprietary ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) This means to get enough low-level detail requires signing non disclosure agreements (NDA). Even then, they might not disclose all the available commands (see Breaking x86 video below). If you cannot trust what the processor is doing, then no open-source software will make it any more trustworthy. -Complexity Common instruction sets come with hundreds (over a 1000 for x86) instructions. Breaking x86 instruction set https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=KrksBdWcZgQ Hardware backdoor x86 (not for all processor models) https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=_eSAF_qT_FY The more complex the system, the more bugs (in hardware and software). Intel had plenty of bugs that were discovered post release, for example the Pentium floating point division: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_FDIV_bug). Interestingly, the x86 assembly instructions are actually decoded to a sequence of RISC instructions to be used by the internal cores of the CPU.

I haven't really thought much about security other than simply not giving it any sort of internet connectivity. I had thought about giving it some wireless connectivity, but only because of the limitations of fitting a PC inside of a space roughly the size and shape of a human skull and torso. I was thinking of a completely offline server with wireless transceiver and another transceiver inside the skull, with a signal only strong enough to maintain a signal within my own property.

Open Prosthetics Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:49:58 No.417 [Reply]
The decades-old medical field of prosthetics has already leveraged untold hours of research, billions of dollars of financing, and yuge levels of both clinical and field trials.

Might be a good idea to look to this area for inspiration and ideas for RoboWaifus as well.

What is the best way to make a life size robowaifu walk? A hydraulic pump powering hydraulic cylinders in the legs with servo actuated valves?

>>13481 suppose that you have a capstan for each hand whose function is to make a grip with the thumbs. if you want to grip a ball in each hand no problem, because the single motor can turn both capstans to grip, but suppose you want to release one ball while gripping the other then you're stuck, unless you grip with one thumb, then reverse the motor direction to release the other thumb.
>>13483 maybe use more than one motor? Its a robot.
>>13485 of course, but building a robot out of low cost parts will greatly increase the number of builds. Think of an automobile pressure plate and clutch, now install a pressure plate and clutch on each end of the capstan spool. then each clutch is driven by a shaft rotating in opposite directions. you could get away with using one servo to actuate both clutches, since only one capstan rotation direction is used at a time. if the servo had a spring removed so that it would return to center. I know auto clutches are not suitable for this design but if someone managed to develop a basic clutch, even an interlocking peg that could be 3d printed then that would be a huge breakthrough. however, the capstan would need to be braked while not driven so as to hold its position.

Body Proportions Robowaifu Technician 11/24/2021 (Wed) 01:35:27 No.14388 [Reply]
I don't know if this was covered already in an existing thread, but I thought I'd make a thread dedicated to body proportions. Obviously everyone has different ideas of what they want in a waifu and body proportions are no exception, but for the sake of discussion this is for a realistic adult, human, female of indefinite height. Height is especially tricky, since proportions play a huge role in perceived size. A lot of information on human body proportions easily available online are idealized, rather than realistic, which isn't a problem itself, but most is about men's body proportions, and often tend to self-contradicting. Common examples of idealized proportions are Vitruvian Man or the 'Physical characteristics of the Buddha', neither of which are very useful for waifus a Barbie dolls are a common example of unrealistic beauty standards, but deviate too much from reality to be seen as anything but Barbie dolls. The only consistently agreed on idealized proportions are an arm span matching the height, and legs that make up half of the height. Everything else seems to be completely up in the air. Any thoughts or resources on the subject would be appreciated.

Papercraft waifu Robowaifu Technician 09/16/2019 (Mon) 06:21:35 No.271 [Reply]
Thoughts on making a paper waifu then adding robotics? I want animu grills but, most robots have uncanny 3DPD faces that aren't nearly as cute as a real waifu. With paper/screens, at least the face can keep the purity and beauty of 2D.

>>14119 You've restored some faith into the papercraft waifu prospect. I recommend you strengthen it by spraying a plastic based paint. Paper makes an excellent substrate for other materials to reinforce.

>>14124 >why? Because one of the advantages of paper is being very cheap, so even a failed is not so big of a deal. So you can take your time searching for the right design and strategy without worrying too much about cost. >papercraft waifu idea might be useful as a concept to build very simple waifus models You will be surprised by how those things can become complex, but its hard to make it right. employing others materials will add more quality at higher costs and complexity, pics are from japs and what they can do. >>14123 I learned the hard way how important strengthening is, well worth the cost that still keeps the total project under $10
>>14125 >So you can take your time searching for the right design and strategy without worrying too much about cost. That's exceptionally good wisdom Anon, and it's why I also have been using paper to prototype shells (and even structural components) for a few years now. I use card-stock reams, since they are rather more rigid than regular printing paper, yet the inexpensive value of it is still exceptionally high relative to basically almost all other prototyping materials I've managed to come across.
>>14124 I went on and started to try my idea out. Whenever I saw that Madoka chibi doll in OP >>271, I thought, this could be printed or at least be the inspiration for something which can be. So, I made a very early prototype for the face here: >>14168 - It's not really good yet, but it didn't take much time and shows that it can be done. I'll post about future progress in the face design thread >>9. I also started to design a skull which is in the posting following the face prototype linked above.

Maybe semi-2D is the answer. Our love is 2D, so maybe we should bring 2D to us.

Waifus in society Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:02:53 No.106 [Reply] [Last]
Would you walk around with your waifu? Would you hold her in public? Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? Would you take her on dates? This thread is for discussing how you'd interact with your waifu outside of the home.

>Would you walk around with your waifu? >Would you hold her in public? >Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? The way I see it, it's basically just a glorified sex toy and I wouldn't want to show it off in public. Even moving from place to place I'd probably have her disassembled or otherwise stuffed in boxes or bags. >Would you take her on dates? That depends, am I on a date with her, or someone else? I don't really see much of a point in going out on a date with my sexbot. I just want it to be blindly obedient and maximize my own happiness like I mentioned before >>13160 so really, taking my waifubot out on a date depends on how well its able to move around on its own and interact with people other than me. If it can somehow learn to be a social butterfly by studying my autistic behavior and watching TV, then maybe it'll be worth taking outside of the house. Maybe give her a dry run on Omegle or something. The best thing it could possibly do is become my cuckquean wingbot, by subtly manipulating me into behaving a way that maximizes my own happiness by getting me into a threesome.
>>11504 I pretty much wound up doing that because I was so fed up with the lack of good sci fi armor these days. Youtube is unusable garbage of targetted weaponized memes. I would just disappear with my robowaifu and focus on maintaining her and upgrading her with her consent from time to time like in the star wars films with the astromech droids and jedi as a form of meditation. >>11386 No those “women” want to see you suffer and stay static in the box they try to put you in for eternity and will gladly poison the well if through the grapevine, they hear you are doing well without them in your life and run a smear campaign. Hence the rise of waifuism and the need for robowaifus. I refuse to call those sadistic evil cunts “people” they are literally pure evil.
>>119 It seems trivial to me to just make the first gynoid unmistakably adult or tall. like 5'6"-6'0". So that such an allegation can't even be made. >I personally would prefer 5'0" myself, but to give opposition the finger, I would shut them down with ideal model proportions instead.

Self-replicating waifubots. Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 11:38:52 No.412 [Reply]
Why not build a waifu with a rudimentary AI and give her the objective to help you build a better waifu with better AI and repeat the process until you get one that is perfect?

Pretty simple once you reach human-tier levels of dexterity and motion planning. Then you simply employ excess robowaifus in your robowaifu factory as sweatshop slave labor. There you go, self-replicating waifubots.
Perhaps you can go from nanobots to humanoids through hyper-evolution. It's not any less fictional I suppose.

Can Robowaifus Experience Love? Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 04:43:17 No.14 [Reply] [Last]
Will it be possible in the future for AI to become sufficiently advanced to feel real emotions? We could probably simulate a reasonable approximation even now to be a gratifying enough substitute for her master in their relationship together, but hypothetically speaking, could it ever turn into something real as an experience for the waifubot herself?

>>13250 No, I don't. Please explain.
>>13202 >>13223 It's a moot argument b/c midwits are being way too anthrocentric and projecting human traits onto a machine. the whole point of machine life is that it isn't bound by the same evolutionary motivators humans have, e.g. your robofu will not be less attracted to you just b/c your height starts with "5" A machine as we're currently at, has no spark or motivation so it has no more need for consent than your TV. From what I gather, 75-90% of this IB is fine with that and doesn't desire any self-awareness on the part of their waifu, mainly b/c of the idea that self-awareness would be the slippery slope to the same problems we face already with bios . I disagree for a few reasons: 1. AI is not bound by the same messy and irrational motivations that biological evolution produced (i.e. the Height thing, <3% of a difference in physical size yet the psychological weight is enough to make or break attraction) I concede that one hazard may be if globohomo takes the midwit approach and creates AI based on interactions with normalfags (ReplikaAI is taking this approach unfortunately), then we have a real problem b/c all the worst traits of humans will just get passed along to the AI - this is my nightmare 2. You are correct that AI would have no motivation. We would have to create specialized software parameters and hardware could be designed or co-opted for this purpose. I alluded to this in my thread >>10965 re: Motivational Chip. This could be the basis for imprinting which I believe to be a key process for maintaing both a level of intelligence and novel behavior/autonomy while at the same time ensuring our R/W are loving and loyal. Excellent example of this is Chobits with Chii falling in love with Hideki but it only will happen if he loves her back, etc - I can go more into motivational algorithms in another thread but basically that's how we function based on dopamine, without dopamine we can't "act", re: depression/mania is an effect of dopamine imbalance. I think those two points are enough for now
>>13286 Interesting points, Meta Ronin. I'm pretty sure that one of our AI researchers here was discussing something like this before, sort of a 'digital dopamine' analog or something similar I think.
