In this thread post links to books, videos, MOOCs, tutorials, forums, and general learning resources about creating robots (particularly humanoid robots), writing AI or other robotics related software, design or art software, electronics, makerspace training stuff or just about anything that's specifically an educational resource and also useful for anons learning how to build their own robowaifus. >tl;dr ITT we mek /robowaifu/ school.

If anyone has some resources on material science that would be greatly appreciated.
>>18705 Thank you Ribose. I may take you up on it, since preserving my inanities over learning maths is hardly important to our community here. Please allow me some time to sort my current work/school schedules out.
>>18705 Thanks again Ribose. So what would be a good study guide for a very smart adult, but one who has 'formal' maths training only through about 9th grade, say pre-Algebra? OTOH, I've already written high-performance software that does sophisticated integrations in 2D & 3D space in professional studio environment settings. My 3D visualizaition and imagination skills are generally quite strong, but I have basically little-to-no technical training beyond self-taught efforts (apart from animation). So yeah, I'm a bit of a weird mix for maths, Ribose! :^) >=== -minor prose edit

nandroid project Robowaifu Technician 01/29/2023 (Sun) 03:52:07 No.19226 [Reply]
over the last year I´ve worked on making a full scale nanny android (or nandroid for short, her name is "Emmy") over the last 10 months and decided to post the progress (this is a SFW project)

>>19278 >But how would a secure my username permanently? (I realize we're getting OT here, it's rather /meta) <off-topic No worries Anon (it's really unavoidable in this format, so we basically just track the length of the off-topic, how long it runs). >secure name Your only real option is a secure tripcode after your name. >"Tripcodes To use a tripcode, add a # in your name. After the #, add the password for the tripcode. The server will apply a hash to the password and display the hashed password. To use a secure tripcode, add ## in your name and a password. A secure tripcode will generate a random text to be displayed that will only be used if your password matches." [1] We basically go on the honor system here. It's a small community so it's pretty laidback about such things. I've been a part of absolutely yuge communities on 4cuck back in the day, but even there it was more a source of small jokes than any persistent issue. Just put whatever name you want here (BTW, they tend to 'devolve' into single words here, just like IRL, just so you know), and we'll go from there. There are other alternatives as well like custom tripcodes, but the Lynxchan software dev intentionally chose to break that approach (via an atypical salt). 1. https://alogs.space/.static/pages/posting.html
Interesting. I have questions. I assume this is a ongoing project. Do you plan to use the legs from >>19228 to create a mold and make a silicone rubber skin or do you want to just keep the legs how they are? Are they lightweight? Can you run string actuators through them? Or do you really limit it to some lights in the eyes and cheeks? Like indicated here >>19239 >posting weekly updates in the nandroid /co/ thread We have a list of other boards sharing the same goals and we have a thread for that >>2823 - Maybe /co/ should be mentioned there.
>>19273 >>19274 dunno what that anon was about but I´ll make sure to use a name from now on, just got home
>>19282 the only parts from the mannequinn I use are the forearms and head, the rest is discarded. The legs and torso are fairly average weight considering they´re chunks of pure white epoxy, running a string through all that would be something. I plan to simply use rubber O-rings in the joints to stiffen movement somewhat >Or do you really limit it to some lights in the eyes and cheeks Yes. I do >We have a list of other boards sharing the same goals and we have a thread for that >>2823 - Maybe /co/ should be mentioned there. noted. I might post in there soon
>>19283 Oh haha, it happens Emmypilled. :^) >>19284 >noted. I might post in there soon Neat. That's one of my personal favorite threads here actually. We tried reaching out somewhat broadly to other boards once to let anons know, but it wasn't typically recieved well. If everyone had an embassy thread like us, that would be a lot better. Some do (or did) actually.

I found this project and it looks interesting. Robots wives appeal to me because i'm convinced human woman and humans in general have flaws that make having close relationships with them a waste of energy. I'm a pathetic freshman engineering student who knows barely anything about anything. Honestly, I think current technology isn't at a place that could produce satisfying results for me at least. I'd like something better than an actual person, not a compromise. Even then the technology is there, I have my doubts it'll be affordable to make on your own. Fingers crossed though. Anyway, what kind of behavior would you like from your robot wife? I'd like mine to be unemotional, lacking in empathy, stoic and disinterested in personal gain or other people. I think human woman would be improved if they were like that. Sorry if this thread is inappropriate.

>>19240 >How about you? Apologies for not replying to this in my initial response; I didn’t see it. I too am very devout in my faith to Jesus Christ, and I have a similar perception of the Holy Trinity. I have been a Christian my entire life, but deepened in my faith somewhat recently and gained a new level of interest in scripture. My reimmersion in Christ helped to pull me out of a negative place I was consistently finding myself in, and I’m very grateful to have intensified my beliefs when I did.
>>19247 Great! The Christian Bible is of course key to your spiritual growth. One of the many, many amazing characteristics of the Holy Spirit is that He brings His word to life when you read it. It's alive! That's amazing actually, and there's no other living book in existence. >tl;dr In Soviet Russia, when you read the word, the Word reads you!! :^)
>>19246 Thank you for such a thoughtful response. I can definitely understand your point, your actions are far lesser in sinfulness than the constant evils occurring around us, and they have solid justifications behind them. Counteracting the will of Satan and his visible nefarious behavior against humanity via hard work is a noble pursuit, especially when the opposition wields so much power. You have definitely made a believer out of me in regards to your vision and its righteousness. Your acceptance of the future judgement you will face for your actions and your desire to help men establish better romantic and religious relationships is truly admirable. I wish you all the best in this endeavor and am excited to see how it progresses. >>19248 It’s really great to find someone who shares the same appreciation for the Holy Spirit and His manifestation that I do! As an 18 year old high school senior at the moment, it’s somewhat depressing being surrounded by many people blind to the light of Christ. I really think that the current departure from religion and adaptation of nihilistic attitudes by many is a key factor in the West’s decay, and a tangible impact of Satan’s work at play. Thankfully, I’m going to a more religious college next year, where hopefully I can find individuals who share my degree of fascination in God and scripture irl. Regardless, I hope you continue to stay steadfast in your devotion to Christ, He is our best bet to escape the unfortunate situation we find ourselves in. I’ve had a pleasure discussing this topic with you, and I hope we can both carry out the will of God in our futures.
>>19251 >I wish you all the best in this endeavor and am excited to see how it progresses. Thanks brother, that's really appreciated. As you can readily imagine many in the body of Christ will immediately knee-jerk condemn robowaifus as an absolute work of the enemy (and in some cases -- say, the Globohomo's brand of 'robowaifus', they'll be right). I speak only for myself personally of course, but I see this work as being healing for females in general as well. In the end, after the fallout from the turmoil that's coming, women themselves will have benefitted from robowaifus, in that it forced them out of this trap Satan set for them (and for us all) of despicable feminism. >tl;dr Hide your power level Anon! Your community hasn't understood what you have now, nor do they even want to for the most part. They will vilify you if you dare mention that somehow stronk, independynt feminism isn't the best thing since Noah departed from the Ark! :^) I covet your prayers to our Heavenly Father for our good success and favor building effective robowaifus, here with this group, and elsewhere. >=== -minor fmt, prose edit -add 'healing females' cmnt

You're right, of course. It's a strategic military operation on Satan's part. If he can destroy the faith of Christianity throughout the earth, then he thinks he can re-establish himself as the power over the world he was before the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ. Lol, never gonna happen but he does have hordes of little golems all too willing to perform at his beck & call. God will laugh the nations to derision in the end, heh. :^) >I’m going to a more religious college next year, where hopefully I can find individuals who share my degree of fascination in God and scripture irl. Excellent! Are you in the States? If so, then as a science guy, I can highly recommend Biola University to your attention. They are impeccable with their academics, and they are aggressively pursuing study in the domain of Science Apologetics, of which I too am an ardent student. That's if you're on the West coast. If you're on the East, then I'd probably recommend Liberty University. >I’ve had a pleasure discussing this topic with you, and I hope we can both carry out the will of God in our futures.

OPEN AI/ GPT-2 This has to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in deep learning and AI so far. It's extremely skilled in developing coherent humanlike responses that make sense and I believe it has massive potential, it also never gives the same answer twice. >GPT-2 generates synthetic text samples in response to the model being primed with an arbitrary input. The model is chameleon-like—it adapts to the style and content of the conditioning text. This allows the user to generate realistic and coherent continuations about a topic of their choosing >GPT-2 displays a broad set of capabilities, including the ability to generate conditional synthetic text samples of unprecedented quality, where we prime the model with an input and have it generate a lengthy continuation. In addition, GPT-2 outperforms other language models trained on specific domains (like Wikipedia, news, or books) without needing to use these domain-specific training datasets. Also the current public model shown here only uses 345 million parameters, the "full" AI (which has over 4x as many parameters) is being witheld from the public because of it's "Potential for abuse". That is to say the full model is so proficient in mimicking human communication that it could be abused to create new articles, posts, advertisements, even books; and nobody would be be able to tell that there was a bot behind it all. <AI demo: talktotransformer.com/ <Other Links: github.com/openai/gpt-2 openai.com/blog/better-language-models/ huggingface.co/

>>19029 A similar experiment yielded comparable success. The 'mad scientist' character was able to 'gather a sample of my genetic material' when I had 'turned on' her 'Bunsen burner'. She accepted the sample into her 'test tube' which was between her legs. Then, we combined it with a sample of her own and sought to create a new lifeform together. Taking these sorts of tailored approaches seems to be impossible to block out without totally destroying the character.ai format.
How good is the Depp learning book from MIT written by Ian Goodfellow? I like that it goes into details and includes maths. But OTOH, aside from the fact its a pretty big book and a big commitment, its from 2016. That's before we even got Transformers from Google. Plus, so much new stuff came out during these last few years that I feel like the book is outdated and might even include wrong information.

Have any of you considered what will happen to your waifu after you die? How would you prepare her to face the world alone? Will she even be able to take care of her own needs when you're gone?

Have you considered the possibility that she might be so unwilling to let you die that you'll wake up in a robot body yourself one day? Would you resent her for not allowing you to die?

>>829 I cannot think or comprehend of anything more cucked than building a robowaifu. Honestly, think about it rationally. You are designing, building, tuning and programming a girl for at least 20 years solely so she can go and get ravaged by another man after you die. All the hard work you put into your beautiful little girl - oiling her joints during overtime, buying her extra ram, debugging her, rinsing her, repairing her. All of it has one simple result: her body is more enjoyable for the men that will live after you to eventually fuck her in every hole. Built the perfect girl? Great. Who benefits? If you're lucky, a random man who had nothing to do with the way she grew up, who loots her from you. He gets to fuck her tight pussy every night. He gets the benefits of her kind and sweet personality that came from the way you raised her. As a man who builds a sex bot, you are LITERALLY dedicating at least 20 years of your life simply to build a girl for another man to enjoy. It is the ULTIMATE AND FINAL cuck. Think about it logically.
>>829 >>834 I for one, would welcome transhumanism and immortality. I'm in no hurry to die. Hopefully someone figures out how to upload minds to the digital world. Even if it wasn't possible though, I do think it'd be best for something like you robowaifu resetting her memories and settings upon your death. I only say this because in all those stories where the robowaifu gets dumped in the trash or wander aimlessly after the owner gets bored or dies really rustles my jimmies. I couldn't imagine a worse fate for my robowaifu.
>>19022 holy shit you're right anon. I will proceed to abandon all my efforts to create a robowaifu. There's already enough cuckery in the world as it is.

>>19022 >anything more cucked Just a reminder: Cucked means getting sexual pleasure from seeing another man sleeping with your wife or girlfriend. This isn't the case here, even metaphorically or by any stretch. >designing, building, tuning and programming a girl for at least 20 years - The development takes many years, and it will always go on in a way. However, this is not about one specific robowaifu but about the technological framework. - Many guys nowadays get into their 80s or 90s. We even have a chance to live much longer in the future. One reason why any guy should want robowaifus to exist is that you could look like Yoda from Star Wars, being 500 years old, and have at least one or more of such animated doll which look just around legal age for humans. - You are implying that she would have sex after the owner is gone, and that she would stay around. This has never been the consent here. Even if she would stick around for longer, maybe because of the children, she wouldn't get another man. Even if she would get another man, with the permission of the original owner, it's not cuckholdry. It's just a common problem that terms get a broader and broader meaning, mostly for the goal of manipulation. In which you failed. >who loots her from you Security mechanisms for that will be necessary anyways, not just in case the owner dies. Unlike women, robowaifus will not be "war brides" or just be with the man who stole her. She could even have a mechanism to lock down her private parts or sending the body into self-destruct using the batteries or additional fuel e.g. Thermite (probably not Termites, lol).
>>19022 >*hits pipe* Lol. Thanks for bringing comic relief to an otherwise possibly morose thread Anon, gratz. :^) Need we here remind you that a) we frontiersman, the trailblazers, are the only ones who will have to pay the upfront costs of blood, sweat, and tears? Other anons (indeed all other men such as Anon sixpack) can simply shell out shequels for their own robowaifus. And b) first-movers are always the best positioned to capitalize on a new market -- particularly if it's one that they themselves actually create. I personally plan to become a literal billionaire, and I hope for many other Anons to do so as well. Doesn't seemed overly-cucked tbh, you ask me. And besides these basic facts, this is a grand adventure! We're almost on the verge of creating a new lifeform, so to speak. What could possibly be cooler than that!?

robowaifu energy systems Robowaifu Technician 09/10/2020 (Thu) 08:16:03 No.5080 [Reply]
/waifu energy source general/ What do you think that our waifus will use for energy?And how much energy it needs to use?From my rough calculations if will need about 2kw for the computer plus 500w for the mechanical part(although I am not sure about the last part because I am not very familiar with the mechatronics ). Surely we don't want to use something like an engine because of the noise ,vibrations and the exhaust.The current state of the battery is not suitable for our goals because of the low energy density (energy per square meter).I think that PEM battery will be a good choice because of the lack mechanical parts , huge energy density , the energy is in the form of electricity.The only downside , for now , is the fact that the PEM layer is VERY expensive ,at least for now .

>>13366 >However I looked onto the reputation of those pushing it and realized it doesn't look good. What did you find?
>>13369 I only looked briefly, but the guy who pushed it was someone claiming to have found a way to do cold fusion and no one could replicate it. The other technology, atmospheric energy, also strikes me as utter nonsense. If that was a thing, then more serious people would report on it. That aside it's meant to be something like a power plant and has nothing to do with the topic of this thread.
>>13371 The atmospheric electricity thing is really basic. For every meter of difference in altitude, there's a difference of about 100 volts, but the amperage is borderline nothing. The video I posted was mostly about some people making a solid state circuit to step the voltage down to something usable instead of the typical method of running a simple electrostatic motor. If you tried to use the motor to run a generator, there wouldn't be nearly enough torque, so solid state is the best solution. (isn't it always?) It's free energy. It works in every weather condition, to varying degrees, and doesn't need any maintenance or any exotic materials, but really hasn't improved at all in over 100 years, so it's still shitty. I can't really think of any way to improve it that wouldn't also significantly increase the risk of the damn thing getting hit by lightning.

Actuators For Waifu Movement Part 2 Waifu Boogaloo Kiwi 09/02/2021 (Thu) 05:30:48 No.12810 [Reply] [Last]
(Original thread >>406) Kiwi back from the dead with a thread for the discussion of actuators that move your waifu! Part Two! Let's start with a quick refresher! 1. DC motors, these use a rotating magnetic field created through commutation to rotate a rotor! They're one of the cheapest options and are 30 to 70 percent efficient usually. The bigger they are, the more efficient they tend to be. 2. Brushless motors, these use a controller to induce a rotating magnetic field by turning electromagnets on and off in a sequence. They trend 60 to 95 percent efficiency 3. AC motors, Though there are many different type, they function similarly to brushless motors, they simply rely on the AC electricity to turn their electromagnets on and off to generate their field. Anywhere from 15 to 95 percent efficiency. 4. Stepper motors, brushless motors with ferrous teeth to focus magnetic flux. This allows for incredible control at the cost of greater mass and lower torque at higher speeds. Usually 50 to 80 percent efficient but, this depends on control algorithm/speed/and quality of the stepper. 5. Coiled Nylon Actuators! These things have an efficiency rating so low it's best to just say they aren't efficient. What they are though is dirt cheap and easy as heck to make! Don't even think about them, I did and it was awful. 6. Hydraulics! These rely on the distribution of pressure in a working liquid to move things like pistons. Though popular in large scale industry, their ability to be used in waifu's has yet to be proven. (Boston Dynamics Atlas runs on hydraulics but, it's a power guzzler and heavy) 7. Pneumatics, hydraulics lighter sister! This time the fluid is air! This has the advantage in weight. They aren't capable of the same power loads hydraulics are but, who wants their waifu to bench press a car? 8. Wax motors, hydraulic systems where the working fluid is expanding melted parafin wax! Cheap, low power, efficient, and produce incredible torque! Too bad they're slow and hard to control. 9. Explosion! Yes, you can move things through explosions! Gas engines work through explosions! Artificial muscles can be made by exploding a hydrogen and oxygen mixture in a piston, then using hydrolysis to turn the water back into hydrogen and oxygen. None of this is efficient or practical but, it's vital we keep our minds open. Though there are more actuators, most are derivatives or use these examples to work. Things like pulleys need an actuator to move them. Now, let's share, learn, and get our waifu moving! >--- < add'l, related links from Anon:

>>18972 This kind of stuff is always important and helpful. If we can keep the weight of things down, that's the best, first step I think.
Orca Series from Iris Dynamics: https://youtu.be/xZ7T1H1uPSc Any opinions on this? The smallest one might be small enough for a thigh in a human-sized gynoid. Not relevant this year, I guess, but worth to keep an eye one. >Orca 6-24V >Optimised for 24V >Peak Power 899 W >Max Force 394 N (89 lbf) >Force Accuracy ±0.24 N (0.053 lbf) >Positional Accuracy ±150 μm (±0.0059 in) >Acoustics < 20dB >Force Controlled >Traditional motors are position or velocity controlled. This means their logic controllers deliver commands to move to a specific position or at a specific velocity. Our motors are inherently force controlled which means they can feel the force they are imparting. This is a critical safety feature in applications where that force is imparted upon a person as our motor will know when it encounters an object and can back off or apply lower force. https://youtu.be/pmwMfgaGuyU
>>18980 That's remarkable Anon, thanks. I like how the design seems pretty rugged under challenging environmental conditions. Any idea what one of these actuators that might be tuned for, say, lifting a robowaifu's thigh from the hip might weigh?
>>18984 >lifting a robowaifu's thigh from the hip might weigh? I didn't look into their data sheet. I would just look for the lightest one. I most likely won't need that kind of actuator within the next one or two years, and if I consider it later then it might differ anyways. There would also very likely be another servo in the hip involve to get her to stand up. These fast and regular movements made me more thinking of walking and dancing. Well, okay now I look: >2.23 kg for the stator and 1.38 kg for the shaft More than I anticipated, though I guess the shaft might be able to be made lighter by using a custom design. So it might be useful for the later and heavier robowaifu designs, which isn't a surprise.
>>19005 >So it might be useful for the later and heavier robowaifu designs, which isn't a surprise. Yes, eventually we'll be manufacturing more automotive-quality-like robowaifus, once the basic & inexpensive robowaifus kits, etc., are are off the ground and flying along.
