Does /robowaifu/ want to be friends with >>>/kong/? I thought some crossboard affiliations could be mutually beneficial. I remember many boards used to be friends back on 8ch and it helped with discoverability.
>>21172 Sure that's fine Anon. Allow me some time to look over your board and come up with a cheesy byline for the crosslink (cf. >>3). :^) BTW, we also have an embassy thread if you want to introduce your community to all of us here (>>2823). Cheers. >=== -prose edit

Been doing some cursory research and found there's a very large market among young and autistic men: >63% of US men aged 18-25 are single ~25 million US men aged 18-25 (need to check this statistic), 15 million single men? >men have much higher suicide rates than women due to various factors of modern living >toronto study of ~30% of people with ASD have not dated and <10% marry >autism estimated at ~2% US pop and growing by the year due to advanced first time paternal age, up to 4% in places like california >first time parental age is greater by 7 years for women with college degrees, and the first time paternal age in the US is greater than 30. >rate of boys to girls with ASD is greater than 4:1 >lower lean muscle mass and longer limbs (undesirable traits to many) are common traits in those wirh ASD, compounding with sensory issues, social anxiety, and hypersexuality make partnership difficult >ASD is largely uncurable and untreatable, even with classes for those with ASD >~5 million autistic males in the US, likely a large overlap with young men with a rising density in children if robowaifu made a profit of 1k per robot and everyone mentioned buys one, that would amount to 15-20 billion dollars by helping solve one of the miseries of the modern world: being an average young western man in America. >pic related Apparently young women go for rich old men or the top 30% of young men by and large, leaving the average or lower man alone to rot for over a decade. After 30, the single rates decline and remain stable for men. This will only tend to worsen with time as single young men and autistic children grow in population size. The need for robot gfs is here and rising. Replika has millions of users by itself, even after being terrible to their users. Waifuism is becoming normal. The main reason those who waifu say they're depressed is because "she's not real". Those unwilling to make a tulpa have to wait until the afterlife or have no real hope of being with her. Where are the robots? Singleness, young men, and waifuism (and fandoms too) follow closely together from what I've seen, with a looser but noticable correlation with autism. And again, as far as I can tell this will get worse by generations and the future population of functional American adults may start falling off a cliff. ~2% now could grow to an unsustainable number in the future as more lineages get ruined by waiting to procreate. tldr, Shit is starting to hit the fan for young men and there's a need for robot wives right now. The US may be doomed if people don't marry and have children earlier than 30. >=== -minor typo patch

>>21230 >The US may be doomed (Oh, no you managed to drag my mind into general politcs, *lol*) I think you're overlooking a few things here: - AI will make a lot of jobs redundant - End of fossil fuel use or general collapse might limit what people can do in the future - The spread of the "Western model" or "modernity" might send all countries into demographic collapse. Maybe minus those who will have other problems, like no food if those rich countries collapse. - If societies don't care about what population they consist of, then there are still enough people worldwide. I'm not promoting this, but most people seam to not care (anymore). Also, this could be handled without handing out citizenship. We simply can't tell how the future will look like right now. That said, I'm totally in support of using any argument in favor of men being able to use surrogates to have children. Also, to push back against over-regulation of robowaifus or making them outright illegal.

One of my all-time favorite academicians, Carver Mead, had been awarded the KYOTO Prize by the Japanese Government. [1] I hadn't realized that. AFAICT, it's kind of like the Nobel Prize in Nippon. One thing's for sure without the advances he pioneered, robowaifus would be nothing more than a pipe dream. But thanks to the works by him and many other great men like him that have paved the way for all of us here, they will soon be a reality! Give a thanks for Carver Mead today, /robowaifu/. :^) >"Carver Mead, Ph.D. is the Gordon and Betty Moore Professor of Engineering and Applied Science, Emeritus, at California Institute of Technology. Mead’s pioneering contributions to the field of electronics include proposing and promoting a new methodology to divide the design process of very large-scale integration (VLSI) systems into logic, circuit, and layout designs, and separating them from the manufacturing process. He also contributed greatly to the advancement of computer-aided design technology, paving the way to VLSI design automation and facilitating the revolutionary development of today’s VLSI-based electronics and industry." >"Prof. Carver Mead will be introduced by Prof. Andrew B. Kahng, Endowed Chair in High-Performance Computing, UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering." 1. https://www.kyotoprize.org/en/laureates/carver_mead/ >=== -prose edit

>>21230 >>21234 I think we'll need a substantial presence of like-minded men in both politics and social media. Though I stay away from both. Through politics we have to ensure that any regulation or ban of robowaifus don't make it through. Plus, on social media we need more and more people talking positively of robowaifus to normalize them. Right now, what little attention they receive in social media is sqaurely from the anti crowd, hence the bad rap us robowaifuists get. Although the social media problem can also be solved by bots.
>>21247 >Although the social media problem can also be solved by bots. <let's """win""" this debate by any corrupt means possible Your post sounds just like the Globohomo's tactics, friend. Sure that's how you want to live your life? We don't need to stoop to their evil. While I'm all for good propaganda, let's remember who we are as men. IMO if we do this exceptionally well, then men everywhere will flock to robowaifus, regardless. The GH quadruplling down win their INGSOC techniques won't change the final outcome. The men themselves will do the right thing once it becomes bad enough. >tl;dr Let the evildoers focus on their evil, but let us focus on our arts and sciences. The public will judge us both with their choices.
>>21247 >having a mind-bending orgasm inside of a robot will be a form of political activism >NOOOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T JUST SEX A ROBOTTT!!!!!!!!!!!! >unf wife go brrrr whzz brrrr >get thrown in jail
>>21252 That's how it always starts, but then the speakeasys begin.
>>21253 I would not stop even if they outlaw it, which they won't be able to pass in a bias free court. No need to be autistically held captive by rule following when no court would put me in jail for dicking a robot.
>>21253 I think hiding robowaifus in speakesies will be a tad bit harder than alcohol. Not to mention you'd be doing it with a robot that multiple other men used. Idk about you guys but I want a roboWAIFU not a roboprostitute. >>21249 unironically yes. Its a suggestion. Unless we use their own weapons against them we will always be on the backfoot and loss is all but certain. >IMO if we do this exceptionally well, then men everywhere will flock to robowaifus, regardless. The GH quadruplling down win their INGSOC techniques won't change the final outcome. The men themselves will do the right thing once it becomes bad enough I think you underestimate the effect of social media normalization in the minds of NPCs these days, men included. You could make the perfect robowaifu, with the maid software of Emmy, the cuteness of Chi, the processing power of a supercomputer and the self defense powers of Lacia. If the loud voices from social media says that robowaifu bad, a big portion will listen and not buy them simply because of their propagandization. I simply suggested the bot approach because a lot of men, like me, stay far away from social media like Twitter. Which means us anons will always be drowned out by the vocal SJWs by a lot.
>>21268 >and loss is all but certain. Loss is far from 'certain'. I'd suggest Win is all but certain. You overestimate the power of Social Media (and indeed the Globohomo that conducts it). Evildoers always fall into their own pits eventually. You'll do as you will. For the rest of us I recommend we all work hard and do our best. If we build it, they will come.
>>21230 Revenue is not that whole story. If you have the means to produce so many robots you'd probably be a publicly traded company. In which case those (20 billion?) Would be a fraction of the revenue generated. That is in the us alone. What about say Japan a robowaifu would be a smash hit on that country. Furthermore you don't want to price it at $1000 at the beginning you might want to go higher. I figure it's easier to lower the price than raise it. But the market would find the equilibrium either way. >=== -patch rm'd crosslink
Edited last time by Chobitsu on 03/11/2023 (Sat) 07:30:02.
>>21278 I'd imagine that the very first guys to bring robowaifus to the market can price it whatever they want and get away with it. They'd be swimming in cash either way.
>>21280 This. An anon must be able to capitalize on it as well, but yeah. Our own Henry Ford's Ghost-anon strikes me as a rather-likely fit tbh.
>>21299 He has a general knowledge over most areas of robotics, which is a plus. I wouldn't mind working under him if he got a company going.
>>21301 I anticipate that many of us will be working together (as in, actually getting paid heh) in some fashion or another in the future. It will take some coordination and a leadman or two, but it can be done. I hope to operate mine as a non-profit that our primary focus is creating and distributing very-inexpensive robowaifu kits to anons & other men around the world. Once that's off the ground and well-established then the fun begins! :^) We'll see. But it's certain that this is going to happen. Somewhere, somehow, by some men -- it's going to happen. May that time be soon! >=== -prose edit

>>21302 we'd probably need a dog-whistle of some sorts to know another fellow robowaifuist. I imagine doxxing yourself as being a member of this board would be seen by the female-dominated MSM as the same as browsing Stormfront or /pol/ in the near future.
>>21303 Yes, we've had this discussion before here. I personally haven't come up with anything beyond the company's owner will have to doxx himself and damn the consequences. So-called 'offshore' interest maybe? Regardless, he's the only one in essence that need take off the mask. Everyone else can work anonymously & receive Monero. >the female-dominated MSM as the same as browsing Stormfront or /pol/ in the near future. Lol. Females don't dominate the Corporate-controlled media, the Globohomo does. Feminists are simply little lapdogs that do their bidding. Besides who gives af what they think in the first place friend. The issue is keeping their thugs at bay.
I haven't told my mom I'm planning on making a robot. I told her about making something else. She said that people are meant to specialize and not to be arrogant. I think that's a load of bologna. I've hopped from one thing to the other throughout my life without issue. Sure there ought to be expert but to make a robot I think you need a master of all trades more than a specialist. I'll show her.
>>21337 <in honor of 1337 digits >I haven't told my mom I'm planning on making a robot. If you chose to, what could possibly go wrong? :^) I'll assume you're still living with her. One thing I can tell you is that most normal moms want grandkids. If you tell her you're planning to build a sex robot (and trust me, she'll definitely spin it this way), then where will her grandkids come from? Ixne is my advice, Anon. Also, where are you gonna set up your labroom for construction? She'll definitely know something's up if you have lots of parts delivered and you quickly shuttle them off to your lair w/o discussion. You're definitely correct that being a roboticist generalist is an important goal. But while you're still living at home, I'd suggest you focus more on soft-skills like programming until you get your own place Anon. Good luck!
>>21338 Lol I was going to delete that comment. No I just speak to her over the phone some times.
>>21339 Oh haha. I can delet it for you if you cant Anon. Good luck becoming a robo-generalist though! I hope to aspire to that myself some day. :^)
>>21303 >>21304 You guys are really overthinking this. The only feasable manner I see any project getting cancelled is if it's a very "accurate" lolibot. Even then, it may only be banned in EU or other countries in accordance with existing laws. If women aren't beating down most of men's doors right now, what makes you think they'd get upset that those undesirable men get something besides her anyway? Maybe they'd get upset over having less power over men sexually, or not being able to marry, steal from, and cheat on a low status man because he bought/built a robot instead of a woman. Maybe if these robots exist, people's libidos would be properly managed and every topic won't be about sex like it is now. I wonder if women's ego will be enough to pass a law against a glorified sex toy (the robot), because "robot rights" sure as sugar aren't. Are robot rights women's rights? I guess a moving, talking sex toy with a programmed conscience is a great idea after all. Nature must have made some bugs in the code.
>>21346 Hehe. For a rejoinder, I'd suggest poring over our Roastie threads (>>1061, >>160). I think we can all agree that your prognostication would in fact be an excellent (though temporary) outcome. Regardless, we're pushing forward! :^) >Nature must have made some bugs in the code. Lol. BTW the Encode Project has turned up that a yuge part of so-called 'junk' DNA actually bears the same human language-like features previously ascribed to so-called 'functional' DNA? God knew what He was doing when He crafted junk DNA -- life wouldn't be able to exist without it! Let us hope we can come up with even a percent of similar protective capabilities for our robowaifus! (>>10000) :^)
I don't know why the c++ thread got locked but I don't mind really. The progress posted there was laughably bad. This isn't amateur hour for you to practice c++ tbh.
>>21446 >this isn't amateur hour for you to practice c++ tbh. Kek. Actually, it is. This is a textbook ya silly goose. And it's one that's intended to accomodate complete beginners starting from scratch. :^) BTW, the textbook OP explains why the thread is locked.
>>21448 Well everyone has a different way of learning things. But I and many other people think the best way to learn programming is by doing projects. I learned JavaScript and python that way. If I were trying to learn c++ I'd start by making a text based game with inventory and all. I personally think python is enough just like arduinos are enough. We want to get the prototype done we can worry about the final details later.
>>21449 >If I were trying to learn c++ I'd start by making a text based game with inventory and all. Please do it Anon! The actual C++ classroom thread is here (>>19777). It would be interesting and informative to watch you develop your project there (we will have such as assignments later on, actually) so feel free! Cheers.
>>21451 I am surprised at the lack of quality tutorials put there for making a text based game in C++... I might take a little detour I guess. Anyways, in C++ the std library has input and output in the form of cin and cout. So right off the bat that should get you started. Thereafter make a some variables for stats, make arrays for the items, make attack, special, items, run functions for battles. If you make it so there's more than one enemy at the time that adds some additional complexity to it...

I'm 63% into the book teach yourself electronics... I don't think it'll be enough really, it's really surface knowledge stuff but the art of electronics was a bit too much for me tbh. Anyways whatever, the final product will require more engineering but for now I think surface knowledge will do... Pic related the book's target audience lol
Speaking of electronics unrelated but is there anyone here that knows how to make an elf wave reciver radio?
>>21486 Never mind I found a site for it. https://www.mdpi.com/2079-9292/9/1/171 Apparently the antenna for elf wave radio recivers is very specific and requires a lot of copper wire. But that can wait until later
Not sure how easy this would be to do anonymously with (washed)btc or xmr, but did you consider buying chobit.su and redirecting it to the board? This could be helpful if the board ever has to relocate again if alogs dies. Not to mention, it's cute.
>>21303 >o know another fellow robowaifuist. I imagine doxxing yourself as being a member of this board would be seen by the female-dominated MSM as the same as browsing Stormfront or /pol/ in the near future. Ha, we have a few shibboleths. I can pretty much spot one of us after about 3 exchanges whether on twitter, the chans or pretty much anywhere on the internet. But if you mean IRL that's going to be tough I am very secretive and simply do not talk about that side of my life.
What do you guys think of Neuro-sama? Its an AI vtuber with ability to speak, sing and play games https://www.twitch.tv/vedal987 https://vedal.xyz/advice/
>>21499 I absolutely love neurosama, she is adorable. I do wonder how much is generated response vs Vedal forcing an outcome or selecting from outputs though.

Would you love a nugget robo maid?
>>21501 why would she have to be a quadriplegic? Its much easier to give her limbs than a human.
I'm kind of frustrated with electronics books. They're either too basic or meant for engineering students. Whatever, most useful circuits are prebuilt and can be combined with arduinos. At least I have a rough idea on how to read an electronics diagram into a breadboard.
>>21505 Alright I just found a recommendation on a YouTube video. The arrl handbook for radio communication. I knew there had to be a book like that.ham radio enthusiasts to the rescue.
Just found a non profit for robotics start ups. https://www.massrobotics.org/ I'd be going to do stuff like that and looking around if I was in the us right now.
>>21501 Is it kinky to want to pop your wife's arms and legs off sometimes in bed?

>>21495 That is really cute Anon. I'd invite anyone to do just as you've recommended. BTW, if AlogsSpace ever goes down, we have a couple of bunker sites to regather at. :^)
Hi /robowaifu/ This is the /late/ BO. The users over on /late/ decided that they would be okay with having the main board on the cafe because of the stability and that /late/ has just been down for a while. If you want to help rebuild the board from the archive you can head over to the board. /late/ is a slow board. So you can take your time with rebuilding. (im sure the cafe admins would like for their servers not to be flooded tbh) https://anon.cafe/late/ thanks in advance <3
>>21659 Hi /late/, welcome! I take it then everyone's planning to turn your bunker into a main board then? Do you have a thread for the rebuilding effort opened yet BO? Regardless I'm sure some of us can find time to lend a hand here and there. I'll come have a visit this weekend sometime. Cheers! :^)
