Humanoid Robot Projects Videos Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 04:02:08 No.374
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)

The creator does overplay what they can do. It's just pre -cripted interactions with trigger words. Still impressive. >>26769 >Aspir An interesting attempt at a practical robot. Could be greatly refined to something usable for us.
>>26771 >What are your ideas for using round display eyes? I'm not into that, but others seem to be. I'm also not opposed to it. Best thing would be if they were available with a hole in the middle. >It's just pre -cripted interactions with trigger words. Yeah, I'm aware of that. Though, it's good to see how fascinating these robots can be.

China appears to be getting more serious about humanoid robots. For 2024/25, the predictions are they will have production capacity for some of the models (so, hundreds of thousands of units? millions?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cJV08MTwA0

>>26778 The RHP Kaleido is one of the most exciting robots for me. It was barely able to anything a year ago, now it seems to work as a very slow and careful general purpose robot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h66xSbIEdU[Embed] >>26779 Cloudmind's Cloud Ginger and Cloud Purple are both impressive knockoffs of Aldebaran Pepper. Looks like it could be a great functional upgrade, though it needs independent testing. UBTECH Walker X is also impressive. The correct height and proportions for an efficient home robot. To be honest, this is the first time I actually feel like I have real competition. Need to make my next post in this thread my own bot!
>>26797 Yeah these are great. Totally-not-Pepper-bot actually looks much more capable in the Chinese version! Might be a solid mobility base contender for MaidCom. :^)

Another project: https://youtu.be/hsH16CHexUE >This is the LAD Robotic Torso V1.0; the ideal platform for your robotics projects. You can build your own 3D printed humanoid robot, starting with this Torso, composed of two articulated arms, run by10 inexpressive and widely available servo motors. And once you finished assembling and programming, you can continue adding to it, for instance you can add a 3D camera to improve the interaction of the Torso with its surroundings, or a set of wheels to help the Torso move around and get closer to its target, or add speech recognition to control the arms with voice commands. The possibilities are endless and the platform is here for you to explore and expand with your knowledge and experience. @therobotstudio also made some progress: https://youtu.be/p9I1RHClZXY https://youtu.be/IqQjezlTCrw None of them is really waifu material, but it shows the possibilities and limitations, especially with these rather conventional and conservative approaches.
>>29019 This is cool, Anon. Thank you. >@therobotstudio I have the feeling he's intending to go commercial (and good luck to him, he's certainly earned it). As we've all seen countless times however, once other, money-hungry, interests begin to wrest control away from the artist/savant, bad things begin to happen. Particularly for outsider anons watching & learning. >tl;dr SAVE.EVERYTHING. Thanks again, cheers.

I didn't really link this guy before, because his robot looked a bit ... well .. rudimentary: https://www.youtube.com/@DIYRobotGirl/videos He's also making a lot of videos with AI overlays, which only sometimes are fine in a funny way: https://youtu.be/VL0hpTN63io - Though that part isn't so much about building a robot.

Here is a gallery of a humanoid project on Hackaday. It looks like it never got beyond the legs. He seems to have taken the idea of using a motor or servo driven pinion gear and a large circular gear to extremes, using them almost anywhere he could. Inexpensive 3D Printed Full Size Humanoid Robot Gallery https://hackaday.io/project/26015/gallery#083ff2da695dc483621929701370be35 I had a similar idea I want to try, but only at the hip. Inspired by the My Size Barbie thread on the Doll Forum, instead of a base for mounting a steel hemisphere, the "pelvis" would have a partial ring gear with inward facing teeth, and the drive pinion in the top of the leg/hip. See picrels. https://dollforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=69416
This one named Kenshiro was made over a decade ago but is pretty good looking in some movement. The actuator system is fairly clever for how simple it is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JNq1COqB_s https://spectrum.ieee.org/kenshiro-robot-gets-new-muscles-and-bones
>>30269 Oh, wow, I love this one since it's very human-like. Not sure if I've seen it before and just forgot about it.
>>30279 It is possible this design had issues with the motors overheating because some years later they designed a seemingly similar one though likely more simplified that was designed to have an evaporative cooling system to keep the motors cool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RA4u_9FLzso https://spectrum.ieee.org/this-robot-can-do-more-pushups-because-it-sweats
>>30282 Okay, that one I remember, but I guess the first one is better documented.
figure 01 is getting pretty impressive
>>30291 a stuttering robot nice, shame they didnt include will smith in the video lmao, why do they do this
>>30291 The problem is that is quite easy to fake with pre-programmed actions and voice files. Heck, we only really ever see it moving from 1 angle so the person could easily be composited onto sped up footage or even 3d cg. Need to randomly place/dump items on a counter and have the robot put them away with no jump cuts and have the person interacting with it while it does so.
>>30297 While I would hope people to be above that sort of thing, you are right. I'd like to see more footage.
>>30291 >>30292 >>30297 >>30310 One would have to be pretty gullible to think that is even remotely real. The whole thing is blatantly CGI. It even moves more smoothly than a human. It has that telltale appearances of CGI. Im not sure how to describe that CGI look, just surreal appearance of objects I guess. Can be the top graphics and the look is always there.. It might be a marketing stunt for OpenAI at best and at worst a whole vaporware scam.
>>30312 hard to tell what the demo is supposed to be and whats just dramatization but robotic arms that identify and handle objects is pretty par by now, theres lots of other projects that have done this, i think the last 10 seconds was the original demo before the marketing boys took over
>>30312 You're being too dismissive. Especially given that the robot is likely rooted to the ground or on a test stand, it really isn't moving unbelievably smoothly. You should see how smooth industrial robotic arms have gotten lately, for instance. >>30316 has it right. The presentation is definitely zazzed up a bit, but it remains to be seen exactly how much.
>>30317 I don't think so. It's the lighting. Something feels off about it that it just looks CGI. Though it is also possible a lower frame rate like used in cinema and some post editing might be making it look fake.
>>30319 I understand why you would say that. It is lit very evenly, and the movement really does look uncanny. Let's also not forget that seeing robots function smoothly isn't something that we're exactly used to at this point. I just think you're wrong to dismiss the video as completely fabricated. I do appreciate your skepticism, however. It's important to question what you see. Hopefully we can get some more footage or a live demonstration from these people soon.

>>30320 I'm playing with local LLMs and stuff, and the demo seems technically feasible, especially if one has access to large AI models and the supporting hardware. Also the movement is technically feasible as well, considering I can get some pretty smooth motion with just junky hobby servos (see attached), nevermind expensive ones. It is the cinematography that has me skeptical because the choices thereof makes it very easy to cover up any fakery. Unitree addresses this pretty well (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8JMX6PGRoI) where they have a person drag the robot back and forth over the floor obstacles, and there is even motion blur on the robot so you know either a) it is real or b) they really put in the extra subtle effort with their faking. Unitree does seem a bit sped up tho but that could just be me.

>>30762 >wonder how that works with a torso having movement so far down I might ask him on Youtube, if I don't forget.
Wasnt sure where to put this because I do not like this design of this robot at all but the demonstration and presentation helps give good pointers on making a humanoid robot interact with a person properly. I suppose some of you could have came to these conclusions yourselves but still may help as a hint. You just can skip to 4 minutes in really since it is just a talk about social robots first. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1ZhWv84eWE
>>30781 I personally find it quite humorous that we, here, on /robowaifu/ itself, have bent the Leftists and Filthy Commies over a barrel with their 'Kill Whitey!111', 'Kill Patriarchy!111' satanic rhetoric. (It was laughable they postured this fugly as the 'we' built this robot mouthpiece.) * On the one hand, it seems they are only just now collectively beginning to realize how awesome real-world companion robots are going to be. * On the other hand, it's pretty clear that disenfranchised, capable young men are going to be both the primary producers & consumers of such anytime during the near-to-midterm timeframes -- and that the agendas of these independant, talented young men are going to first & foremost be for the development of robowaifus. The horrors! :D The Globohomo itself is facing a similar conundrum as well, not just it's little army of trained golems. * On the one hand, the personal companion robot field is destined to eventually become the second-largest practical industry in all human history (behind food production). Hundreds of trillions of dollar's-worth, all else being equal : "Won't someone please just think of the sheqels!111?" [1] * On the other hand, they have already let out so much manipulative, predictive-programming -esque, "It's the Le Terminators, RUN!111" media hype (through fear for their own hides lest Anons and Joe Sixpacks all get their own robowaifus 'too early' [2] [cf. the history of Tay.ai, et al]) [3] -- that they are currently struggling to try and figure out how to retcon their normalcattle brainwashing """narratives""" of today to support their intended big moneygrab of tomorrow. Epin. GG, /robowaifu/ ! :^) --- 1. This is not including their military or industrial -use agendas for humanoid robotics; rather simply for appealing personal companion robots. 2. That is: while still opensource & free (such as promoted by our model here) -- and not directly under their iron-thumb of surveillance and control. 3. Additionally, confer this Anon's post : (>>30787). Lol, the programming is real! :D >=== -prose edit -add'l crosslink

I had a while ago came across HuggieBot. Terrible design to look at though it's seemingly more research focused but not too bad on the hugging function. The test was to see how satisfactory the hugs are to find best hugging style. Probably wouldn't be too difficult to incorporate the method used to know when to release from a hug which seems to be checking for hand release in the back. Imagine getting in the arms of your robowaifu and she wont let go and just squeezes tighter and tighter till you hear the snap of your ribs and it's lights out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhq2Ps2wsUs
>>30787 I don't care how terrible the design is or if I'm getting crushed to death, I just need a hug.
Eve by 1X is neat.

I was joking about the consequences of not taking notes.
Christoph Kohstall worked on a amazing humanoid service robot prototype called Mona (with a female voice) during the last three years, showing how much can be done in a few years and by a small team (I assume): https://twitter.com/CKohstall/status/1778900720500310235 - Though it's of course not the same as our goals and has different constraints. Also, it spits out some rather lefty talking points about it's goals towards legacy women. www.kindhumanoid.com Btw, I download such video and upload them here in low resolution, since X isn't really for linking posts and videos. >example: yt-dlp -f http-256 --restrict-filenames --trim-filenames 25 LINK
>>30956 Interesting work, thanks NoidoDev. He seems to have already somewhat-taken the 'Chobitsu Opus of Extremely Lightweight Structures' pill (cf. >>28664 , et al). I predict he will have good success if he continues in this vein. 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

>>30956 I think it isnt a good idea to use red coolant for the same reason he got confused. You cant tell if a person is injured. It should be purple or pink or something which is similar enough but still noticeably different. >10k And yet it still just has tennis balls for hands
