I'd like to have a place to accumulate video links to various humanoid – particularly gynoid – robotics projects are out there. Whether they are commercial scale or small scale projects, if they involve humanoid robots post them here. Bonus points if it's the work of a lone genius. I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project. I think it's pretty impressive even if it can't walk yet. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=ZoSfq-jHSWw === Instructions on how to use yt-dlp to save videos ITT to your computer: (>>16357)

>>30956 Interesting work, thanks NoidoDev. He seems to have already somewhat-taken the 'Chobitsu Opus of Extremely Lightweight Structures' pill (cf. >>28664 , et al).

As to him being a Leftist -- while it's a horrible state of affairs for the entire world around him -- it's not entirely unexpected (cf. >>30784, etc.) This new 'discovery' on their parts will actually drive the entire push for robowaifus forward at an accelerated pace, ironically enough (for them). :^) >=== -minor edit

MaidCom Project Thread 2 Project Goal: Simple, low cost, extensible platform for robowaifu development. Picrel shows the model which is being developed. Every part will be designed to be easily printable and replaceable. Her designs will be open source. Modding and customization will be encouraged. This is a base model. Early revisions will be heavily limited in functionality. I invite you to help design and define standards so that it is easy to create specialized add-ons to allow her to become your own waifu. Collaboration is important, MaidCom is officially partnered with Lin and his Waifu Wheelchair, if you'd also like to be officially partnered, say so. Cat eats and miniskirts are encouraged!

Realized I was being kinda silly devising my own convoluted logging system out of concern for performance latency, once it suddenly dawned on me the C++ standard library already sported a perfectly-serviceable buffered logging system--which can lazily write to files. Here's a little RAII-compliant hack for doing just that. [1] >main.cpp #include <cstdlib> #include <fstream> #include <iostream> #include <string> class File_clog { public: File_clog() = delete; // no default ctor // globally-redirects all std::clog output into the given filename instead explicit File_clog(std::string const& name) : log_nm{name}, log_file{log_nm} { // assign this log file's buffer into std::clog : auto log_buff = log_file.rdbuf();

>>14826 well, I decided to finally write that zig imageboard, 2 years later. I'm still not 100% happy with the results, but it's an improvement over the previous attempt. this one is easier to setup too, and it only has two dependencies besides the zig compiler: sqlite and imagemagick. no libcaptcha this time (just imagemagick) and even less javascript (none) https://codeberg.org/cirefl/yutai (sorry for the necrobump)

Also, a post 'move' feature (such as the one supported by JSchan server software) would be very nice.

Elfdroid Sophie Thread #3 SophieDev 02/18/2022 (Fri) 11:38:48 No.15236 [Reply] [Last]
New video of Sophie is now up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOGrdHn7wBU Finally got her head working in a reproducible manner. I had completely broken about seven of her previous micro-servos. But the burnt-out ones weren't the big problem - I just connect suspect servos my Arduino UNO and if my control servo can run the 'Sweep' sketch but the suspect servo cannot, I know it's dead and in the bin it goes. However, one servo was damaged but still working - except it caused some kind of feedback that made all other micro servos connected to the same circuit go haywire - even brand new ones. Luckily the faulty servo in question was old and had spraypaint on it, so I could tell it apart from the others. But that was very confusing - at first I thought it might be related to the small magnets that hold her faceplate on, but this is not the case. Rogue servos are definitely something to watch out for in future. Anyway, now that I have measurable, standardised voltage going into all of the micro servos, I'd like to upgrade her neck again. She can actually shake her head (but not in the above video as it is addressed straight-to-camera), but she still cannot nod her head as it weighs too much and the neck servo overheats rapidly. Heads are relatively heavy things (especially with long hair). The breakthrough with Sophie has been splitting her up into separate subsystems and separate circuits, then focusing on only ONE subsystem/circuit - in my case her head. For a beginner like me, it was just too confusing and labour intensive to attempt programming her head, speech, neck, arms and hands all simultaneously. When errors occured I was having a real hard time pinning down which motors were affected, how badly they were affected and why. Having to tear down one large, complex system is waaaay harder than troubleshooting something far smaller. So focusing only on her head solved this problem.

>>30894 >>30899 > Congratulations. Thank you, both. As a home and mortgage owner, I am now officially another normie cog in the machine! Lots of work already done, lots for me still to do in the near future! Speaking of cogs in machines; the main design problem with the Elfdroid arms was my choice of servo horn. The round ones (even aluminum) are no good for a joint that supports a lot of weight and must move back-and-forth repeatedly. Those round servo horns are only held onto the servo output shaft by little gear-teeth and/or a small grub-screw. This will wear a groove into the output shaft afer only a few dozen limb movements. Meaning the servo horn will begin to slip on the shaft, resulting in huge errors of movement in the robot's limb (no matter how well-programmed the servos). If this problem is ignored for long enough, the robot's limb will eventually detach mid-movement, often yanking out wires and bending electronic pins in the process. For any joint under heavy load, I highly recommend using the best R/C car-type aluminum servo horns that you can find. I used a couple of these in Sophie's neck joints and they eliminate the servo output shaft wear/slippage problem entirely. Of course, they are far more expensive, precision-machined components, but that's part-and-parcel of any serious robotics project (as I learned when reading about backlash and harmonic drives). Thought I should leave the main design + build error that I made here at the end, just in case anyone else ever tries building Elfdroid arms or wants to edit the CAD files.

via >30501 >This article demonstrates a two-step method to 3D print double network hydrogels at room temperature with a low-cost ($300) 3D printer. A first network precursor solution was made 3D printable via extrusion from a nozzle by adding a layered silicate to make it shear-thinning. After printing and UV-curing, objects were soaked in a second network precursor solution and UV-cured again to create interpenetrating networks of poly(2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulfonate) and polyacrylamide. By varying the ratio of polyacrylamide to cross-linker, the trade-off between stiffness and maximum elongation of the gel can be tuned to yield a compression strength and elastic modulus of 61.9 and 0.44 MPa, respectively, values that are greater than those reported for bovine cartilage. The maximum compressive (93.5 MPa) and tensile (1.4 MPa) strengths of the gel are twice that of previous 3D printed gels, and the gel does not deform after it is soaked in water. By 3D printing a synthetic meniscus from an X-ray computed tomography image of an anatomical model, we demonstrate the potential to customize hydrogel implants based on 3D images of a patient’s anatomy. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsbiomaterials.7b00094
I found what might be an excellent low cost resource. Used or refurbished 3D printers on ebay. I found by accident looking for 3D stuff on ebay. Creality has their own ebay store where they sell refurbished printers. The bad part, Creality's quality control sucks, bad. These are printers someone has already returned and while they say they refurbish them, some appear for the bad reviews to be thrown in the same box and shipped out again. So why bother? The VERY important point is because they are refurbished ebay, allstate insurance has a two year warranty on these things. They also tend to be slightly over or around half the cost. Still you might say that's a bad deal but if look at the reviews on Amazon the negatives tend to be Exactly the same percentage as they are on the returned, refurbished printers. So you're really not taking much if any more risk and you're getting a much better warranty. Another way to think of it that for any part that may be bad you could upgrade to a far better one, make sure everything works and still be out less money than the one bought new from Amazon, while taking no more numerical risk of getting a bad one. Now it would be nice to have the funds to buy a perfect printer but to get a really good one you're talking $500 or higher. Base model ender 3's you can get for around $100 used. I like the ender 3 V3 SE. I like the dual screws on the "Y" and "Z" axis. This gives you a great platform for stability and the direct drive extruder is far better as opposed to boden cables. Boden cables are likely to be a problem if you speed it up to go faster. The cable friction causes problems though at low speeds it's perfectly fine. SE, not the fastest, but I think you could add parts over time and make it better and better. Creality is not the best but they have so many sold there's a pile of hardware and software add-ons. So over time you could make it what you wanted while cheaply getting into it.

I assume you'd add some type of Epsilon test (line #14) in for a working example, Anon? --- >also: I notice that the formula you reference in the comments (line #8), seems to be different than the code example (line #12) ? >note: for my line numbers, I'm using my own (re)formatted version of your code example. cf: https://trashchan.xyz/robowaifu/thread/26.html#27 >=== -add image hotlink -minor edit

>>30909 meant to be 10*ans not 18*ans my bad, good mistake to see how the method works though since you still center in one of the roots even though the derivative is wrong it just takes more iterations lots of things you can do to make it better of course just wanted to keep it simple
>>30910 Ahh, thanks. It's rather nice that the eminent Newton devised such a computationally-simple approach to this need. I'm sure with modern superscalar architectures, the solution would converge in very few clocks. Cheers. :^)

There are a lot of robotics research and projects going on out there in the world, many of them with direct application for us here. Please contribute important, quality links you find that you think would help /robowaifu/.

Robot Operating System (ROS)

>[ROS] is a flexible framework for writing robot software. It is a collection of tools, libraries, and conventions that aim to simplify the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior across a wide variety of robotic platforms.

>>30210 Yes, I think you're right. It's a strange dichotomy. There's some dynamic of the old turn of speech 'strange bedfellows' at play here IMO. < On the one hand: We here (and other Anons like us), with our clearly muhsoggyknees, literally Hitler desire for loving, helpful, and charming waifus. < On the other hand: Enthusiast groups largely funded by the evil globohomo, who want nothing more than to quadruple-down on an ultra-pozz overdose, gleefully pushing for an end to Whitey for good, and the destruction of the Patriarchy!111!!ONE!! ...both working together for the common goal of AI 'benevolence' towards all mankind! :DD Strange Days indeed, heh. :^) >=== -minor edit

I came across this soft robotics focused site with instructions for different actuators, mainly pneumatic. Their YouTube channel barely has followers so I may be first here to point this out. https://opensoftmachines.com/

>>30887 Very nice. Thanks NoidoDev, I briefly considered this very topic a few years ago and basically figured it was a non-starter b/c CBA to try and manage moving it off of Ub*ntu . Maybe it's time to reconsider the prospect again though I anticipate there will still linger a lot of dependency hell, since ROS is a sprawling mess with a yuge attack surface.
>>30268 Thanks Anon! Very interesting approaches.
