/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

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

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

In this thread let's share everything related to producing parts made of plastic. Injection molding being a major method to discuss. 3D printing has it's own thread and is more for prototyping, please keep 3D printing here: >>94

>>9308 Having that extra volume might be handy. But I'm curious what the cycle-time is for each unit? Don't see that reflected. >I doubt that this is such a great idea, but I could be wrong. No, I think that would be a legitimate business Anon. Especially for an artist that was good at making nice designs, but maybe wasn't interested in the full robowaifu production process? I'm sure there will be a wide variety of approaches tested and your idea seems a legit one to me. I toyed around with creating a DIY vaccum former. We used a shop-vac and heat lamps. I think this would probably be a good way to make large body shell pieces inexpensively. >>9309 Huh, that's interesting.

Work on my Elfdroid Sophie Robowaifu Enthusiast 08/18/2020 (Tue) 22:49:13 No.4787 [Reply] [Last]
Design and 3D printing is under currently underway to turn Sophie from an articulated doll into a proper robowaifu. I will post updates to design files on her Google Drive folder when I have confirmed that everything actually works smoothly. So far I've just got her eyes moving left and right, her lower jaw can open and close, and I am working on giving her neck two degrees of freedom.

Not exactly a 'related xlink' OP, but you might find this interesting if you follow the link. >>9080 BTW, you are just reaching the autosage bump limit. I'd suggest you create a new thread for your Elfdroid Sophie work. It's traditional to link back to the previous threads in a continuation thread, and to make a very obvious post at the tail end of the old ones screaming NEW THREAD. :^)
>>9160 I wondered when that would happen, thanks for the heads up! Oh and yes, that Glados robot is very impressive! Those cheap and clunky (but still pretty awesome) high-torque servos are found in everything from vending machines to electric windows and automatic doors, apparently. Which would explain why they are so mass-produced and readily available.
END OF ELFDROID DEV THREAD 1 I think. Of course other people could post here still but this is supposed to be the end of this thread LOL. SECOND SOPHIE DEV-THREAD BEGINS HERE: >>9216 Motor your way over there if you want to follow this eccentricity further!

A lot of normies see what I am working on and their first reaction is naturally "Sexbot hur-dur-hur!" I always tell them that it's MUCH worse than that. If I just wanted a doll to ejaculate into then I could spend four or five grand on a high-quality silicone doll and be done with it. I see robots as a way for humanity to escape or at least circumvent the suffering and DNA-bound slavery of organic life. The futile cycle of mortality - the deprivation and temporary fulfillment. Also, less philosophically; robots are a gateway to learning programming and electronics. When making my robowaifu I always remind myself that it is her who matters, not me. My name and my history are unimportant. All that matters is what I can create. After years of struggling just to build up my C.V. I had to find a cause or project that was bigger than myself.
>>7782 >After years of struggling just to build up my C.V. I had to find a cause or project that was bigger than myself. Thanks for sharing that Anon. As you mentioned, philosophy can play an important role in our choices regarding robowaifus. Particularly if, like yourself, we are driven to strive for something important to more than just ourselves. It's not inconceivable that what /robowaifu/ is attempting may in fact benefit literally millions in the end. And not just the men either, but also (apparently ironically) women as well. If the woman somehow has sense enough in herself to not try and be a man (nor attempt to usurp the man's natural authority in their relationship) then they will certainly have a healthier mental state as well. The soon-coming robowaifu industry can be a catalyst for some women to rethink their roles in society, to the betterment of us all. OTOH, I have to take issue that you aren't important Anon. At the very least your work is already an inspiration and encouragement here. Godspeed to you.
>>7782 >A lot of normies see what I am working on and their first reaction is naturally "Sexbot hur-dur-hur!" >I always tell them that it's MUCH worse than that. If I just wanted a doll to ejaculate into then I could spend four or five grand on a high-quality silicone doll and be done with it. Normalniggerfaggottrannies such as ones who use the word "normie" need to be thoroughly BTFO at every occasion. Next time someone tells your NPC brain your sexbot is a sexbot, answer this: >If I wanted an object that is only good as a cumdump, I'd get a woman
>>7785 >need to be thoroughly BTFO at every occasion. It's fine to enforce good IB culture and etiquette, but I'd say try to find a way to do it that shows both respect and understanding that they are just newfags (and possibly) eternal-summer, underage b&ns. 'BTFO'ing Sophie-Anon would not only be misguided on your part, but it would also be quite detrimental to us all if he somehow took offense at it and perma'd /robowaifu/ off his goto list (not that I think he himself would be that thin-skinned, but it's the principle itself here). For example, did you ever share or kek at a Rare Pepe before Anon? AFAICT, that started out in a NORMIE-friendly forum (correct me if I'm mistaken but Lebbit I think it was?).
>>7783 Thank you anon. I appreciate it. Hopefully our work on /robowaifu/ can make a change for the better in this world, as you say. >>7789 LOL I'm not bothered at all! I've suffered far worse abuse from people IRL (and paid them back sufficiently) to be affected by some minor crudeness on an internet imageboard. Appreciate your support though, anon! Peace and robo-love!

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.

reminder that if you fail to profit from a robot waifu you'll still have a waifubot in the end lol And if you prioritize the maid aspect you'll have a robot that can clean maybe.

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.

>>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
