/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.

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)

>>16799 Sorry, I posted this before looking into it myself, in case someone was interested and had some time at hand. All four videos are quite similar and just some short view on a part.

I could use a small dose of dear Kibo-chan to brighten my day. :^)
>>17662 Link to the build? Looks like your typical painstakingly hand-tuned animitronics doing something cute for clicks with no sensor feedback but I'd love to be proven wrong.
>>17665 I'd recommend using Waifusearch, Anon. I believe Kibo-chan's Papa holds court on Tw*tter, IIRC.
>>17666 Looked it up and wasn't impressed. Even less impressed by the effort put into the multiple social media accounts and patreon versus basically non-existent engineering rigor.
>>17672 Fair enough. I suppose you could do something here that suits you better instead? I'm sure we'd all enjoy it if you did Anon. I for one would certainly appreciate learning from you on it.

>>17815 >Hatsuki Cutieroid Wonderful stuff Anon, thanks! I'm particularly pleased that this team is insistent of supporting otaku's expectations for this. That ofc, is the only way they will be able to succeed in a big way with this robowaifu. If they do this right--particularly if they successfully enable her to walk autonomously--then they will in fairly short-order likely become literal billionaires. This work should be very inspirational for us Anons here too! :^) (funny how they are combining many ideas we've already discussed in some depth on /robowaifu/ for years now heh) Godspeed to their team.
Those who are on discord anyways, could keep an eye on pib.rocks, a community around building a humanoid robot. The even advertise on YouTube. The already have some partial humanoid robot design for download. It's basically just something like InMoov, not a robowaifu, no especially interesting approach visible so far, standard servos and such, and on the other hand in their mission statement they're focused on the more difficult but less usefull things like "bringing me coffee". Anyways, it might be interesting to keep an eye on. https://youtu.be/F2Cb2GbpBek https://youtu.be/RW7_2w_XQl8 Btw, they're most likely going to be pozzed, but maybe not so much in regards to women: Germany, Nuernberg, lefty city full of (mohammadan) immigrants. Then again, a third of their team seems to be women, which might be one more reason why their robot doesn't look like a waifu. Their selection of music for their videos also sucks.
Ryan Gross wanted to build a humanoid robot, 5 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/@ryangross6886 His arm design might still be useful to look at and learn from it. I don't think it can directly be used, because it's too thick and short to a human forearm. But the hand might be useful. The servo size is 40.7 × 19.7 × 42.9 mm, those or some alternative actuators could be spread out differently. We would have to compare this to SophieDevs design, and others. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2269115 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2ddw3MQl9g
>>18742 Thanks Anon, nice assembly vid. Thread-related (complete w/ improved design): > (Proto1 All Parts - >>6323)
This guy here is also working on some little gynoid, which he calls robot waifu. Did check the videos yet myself. The irony is, I found him by using parts from his ball jointed doll design for my own assembly testing, work on my framework and improvement of my skills here: >>18780 and following postings.

>>18797 Good find anon
>>18797 This is great stuff Anon, thanks. He's really come a long way. Maybe Kiwi can use some ideas from his project for our MaidCom project here too?
>>18797 >>18842 I am a great fan of them and their work. I invited them to join us but, haven't heard back. The concept of a doll on a mobility platform is definitely very tempting. Especially from a modularity standpoint.
>>18846 >The concept of a doll on a mobility platform is definitely very tempting. Especially from a modularity standpoint. Yes. His very cool triwheel platform was specifically the first thing that caught my in in regards to MaidCom. But he's got some other nice ideas as well. I hope he joins us soon Kiwi.
>>18846 > The concept of a doll on a mobility platform is definitely very tempting. Especially from a modularity standpoint. He should either make her removable from the platform and sex-enabled in a future iteration, or just use a dress instead of non-functional legs, though. With the dress he could add a fake stepping mechanism while rolling like the one Masiro uses.

>>18846 >>18851 I think some devs are sprinters and others marathon runners, and we complement each other. Though the sprinters might drop out after they completed some low hanging fruits approach, while the risk for the marathon runners is that we might read, plan and think to much and never get started. Okay, I may have went a bit overboard with the metaphors... Essentially, I think he might just be done with it, and he got so far because he picked a rather fast and easy route. We are so far behind, because for most of us here that waifu wouldn't be good enough anyways. This really isn't meant dismissive at all, but is anyone going to replicate her? Or trying to improve on that design? I don't think so, it won't scale up and she isn't sex-enabled. It's a good showcase and motivator that shows what one guy can archive with enough dedication, but the active members here have simply higher ambitions.

>>18888 C-checked! I think you're correct Anon, and yes I think the two different perspectives & goals are complimentary to one another. Its kind of like the difference between satisfied with a Visual/Virtual Waifu, and continuing to work until we have (at least near) life-sized robowaifus. Even our /doll/ frens have much to teach us IMO. Let the sprinters encourage the Marathon runners, and likewise everyone in between. Together, we're all gonna make it! >also Another thread-related project.

>>19218 Yeah, but his robots aren't very pretty, tbh. Also he's nuts if he thinks she's "sentient" in a meaningful way, because she says so. Not that this term means what people think or imply anyways.
Jinn may not be open source, but it does have a design that is easily interrogated. Easy to understand how it works visually and could help with inspiration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XX3sPtZMVg

10 humanoid robot workers compared: https://youtu.be/z9JlI2ZmqAU From all the humanoid robots for actual work, the ones from Giant AI seems to be the closest to robowaifus. Female look, they do the arm movement with strings, and the cameras on the sides of the head would even be acceptable for someone who wants something very human looking. Not so different from Chii and some others. Though, the hands are still to big. Aside from that they do obvious things like segmentation and focus (like probably anyone else). Never heard of them before I watched the video above (or they slipped my mind). Their videos are fun to watch.

>Fourier Intelligence's GR-1: Igniting a New Wave of General-Purpose Humanoid Robots: >Height 1.6m, Weight 50kg >Name: Sonnie https://youtu.be/KoAEaZm1Hw4 https://robots.fourierintelligence.com https://fftai.com/about/ This channel here is related (I think, it's the dev): https://www.youtube.com/@petercui7152 >Sonnie is a humanoid robot developed by our team. The Sonnie Humanoid Robot features a meticulously designed physical structure, consisting of 34 compliant force-controlled actuators. Its biomimetic torso configuration closely mimics human anatomy. The legs are equipped with four high torque density actuators, which are capable of precise force control. The robot's arms has 7 degrees of freedom, providing the same level of freedom as a human. With 3 degrees of freedom in the waist and head, it achieves lifelike movement control. If you are interested in this humanoid robot, feel free to contact me (peter.htcui@gmail.com). :-) Sanctuary on the other hand, doesn't focus on walking: >Newly unveiled Sanctuary AI Pheonix humanoid robot is the sixth generation of solutions from Sanctuary AI. The company was formed in 2018 with the mission to develop a general purpose humanoid robot in a form factor similar to an average sized human. https://youtu.be/Q10A8Zkfd_M
>>24585 Some comment: >Sonnie is a humanoid robot developed by the Peter&David‘s Team for over a year. It stands 165cm tall, weighs 55KG, and has 34 joints, enabling it to perform actions such as fast walking, turning, obstacle avoidance, precise picking, going up and down slopes, and waving. >However, Fourier Intelligence "took away" Peter&David Team‘s research achievements, rebranded Sonnie as GR-1, and falsely claimed it to be their own "self-developed" humanoid robot with years of technical accumulation. In reality, the original research team was dismissed. In mid-May of this year, Fourier Intelligence's CEO personally led a team to the Beijing office and took away all humanoid robots, robotic arms, robot dogs, and the code from employee computers. >Initially, Fourier Intelligence was a company focused on medical equipment, and Peter&David‘s team provided technical support for rehabilitation robots. At the same time, Peter&David‘s team also recruited some professionals in the field of robotics, who built upon the existing achievements to complete the development of the humanoid robot, Sonnie. >Even though Fourier Intelligence obtained Peter&David‘s humanoid robot, they lack the support of the original research team, making it impossible to fully restore Sonnie's functionality or conduct further iterations, as well as preventing mass production.
>>24586 This sort of shenanigans is one good example of why everything needs to be permissively-licensed. If the IP is already out on the table for the entire world to use, then no scheming & scoundrelling is feasible for would-be exploiters, heh. Everyone will be on an even playing field. :^) Thanks for this information NoidoDev, good stuff!
