HAPPY BIRTHDAY /ROBOWAIFU/ Robowaifu Technician Board owner 11/27/2019 (Wed) 17:27:05 No.1591
7th Birthday Edition greeting here: (>>26581) --- >original (albeit a bit edited) OP follows: Well it's Thanksgiving time again and that means it's /robowaifu/s birthday time too. It's been 3 full years since we began, and this last one has been a bit of a ride tbh. With the deplatforming of 8ch all of us who had communities there were mostly left out in the cold. Thankfully we've been given a new home here in our bunkerhome at JulaynuJulay, and a few of us have found our way back together here. Hopefully the rest of us will find Julay, and /robowaifu/ again as well. We've also made some new friends since we've been here, and I think we're in pretty good shape all things considered. On the topic of deplatforming, we have a new archival system in action that keeps a copy of the board up to date on my machine. Note that my original intent was to fully automate the archive.today archives, but it hasn't worked properly (they seem to be fighting against bots pretty hard now). I hope at least one other of you will also join in for the approach that's actually working, and use BUMP to keep at least one other copy of /robowaifu/ safe in addition to my own. You never know what might happen to my gear (or even to me), and it's just smart thinking to have at least two of us keeping this board safe. My intent is to finish up the system for board migrations (along with Robi), and then bring over other things from the old files and get this board in shape again. Then we can keep it fully backed up together. As you regulars know, /robowaifu/ is basically unique among imageboards and well-deserves preservation IMO. Any other takers for doing backups as well? I just use a cronjob and it's all fully automatic daily I never have to touch it. I'll explain everything in detail how to do it if anyone else wants to participate. One other thing; should anything ever happen to Julay, just regroup on FatchanAnoncafe in our bunker-bunker there. Actually, I'm pretty upbeat about both the world of IB communities in general, and our own /robowaifu/ in particular. We all took a hard knock a few months ago, but we're back on our feet and in the fight again. Kudos in particular to both Julay and Smug for their innovations with the webring introduction. It's lent a resilience to the underlying systems for all our various communities that we've never had before afaict. This alone should help to ensure we have a long future of shitposting together anons. Anyway moving on, I hope this coming year will also see a resurgence in everyone's posts here about their personal projects. I intend to do so myself. It's always a pleasure to see Anon's efforts and blog-posts about their current attempts and ideas, regardless whether they are successes or failures. Persistence is really the single most important factor for eventual success--even more than innate talent--and so just don't quit anon! Don't be afraid to get back in the game even if you met with failure before. Try something different this time, right? Industry-wise, I think that most predictions about the ever-increasing pace of technological innovations in the areas pertinent to robowaifu production are on track. I believe this will eventually also translate into much cheaper components and other resources that we all need for our projects. AI is gradually improving and becoming more accessible for the budding software engineers among us (and the old hands too). 3D printing is still improving and becoming more widespread and a bit cheaper in general. Mechanism designs are slowly becoming better suited to cheap production techniques. Electronics of all sorts keep getting better. Materials science breakthroughs also pop up occasionally. I hope this will be a great year for all of us, and that we each can find some work, project or ideas here that we will all agree on and can get behind together as a team. When we work together, we can be assured of progress--and then eventual success. Let's stay focused and make our dreams become real during this 4th year together. We can do it /robowaifu/, you have some amazing ideas! === Previous greetings: 4th Birthday Edition (>>7224) >=== -added link to current birthday message -redirect anons to anon.cafe instead -add strikeouts -minor prose edits -begin 'previous greetings' list

Cheers to three years, and to the comfy webring.

May we all be putting our dongs in anime catgrill meidos soon, brothers.

I'm looking forward to working on some cool ideas this year. I want to create tools that anons can use to further their dreams of synthetic companionship, and knowing that there are so many of us all striving to reach the same goal gives me the drive I need to carry on working. Happy anniversary, /robowaifu/, and here's to many more!
I'd like to invest in a decent 3D printer soon that can do nylon carbon-fiber. Cheap ones only do PLA so I'm a bit hesitant to blow half my budget for a good one and not have enough money for parts. In the meantime I've started designing a robowaifu that I'm gonna put together in Blender with all the artificial muscles, joints, bones and whatnot, ready to be printed. I was playing with Kizuna Ai's model a bit today and realized it's gonna be hard as fuck to design something with a full range of motion that looks good and doesn't cost a fortune to build. A simple shoulder is going to cost well over $500 unless I manufacture my own muscles.

I doubt my model will be usable for much but I think it'll be a fun place to start and learn what actually goes into building a robowaifu. If I fail, I'll just dismantle her, create an assembly instruction booklet, and ship her to a good home with a new fleshlight included to recuperate the costs.

Hopefully we can start making some physical progress this year. We've gathered a ton of information already. It use to seem like an impossibly complex task to build a robowaifu but every month it seems more and more possible.

Thank you for bringing /robowaifu/ back from the dead. May we all be blessed with waifus and electric love.
You don't have to spend all that money on expensive high temperature filament to get extra strength.
And same thing with the printer itself all you need is a heated chamber combined with an enclosure and a hotend that can handle the heat, most cheap printers can be modified to do this at much lower cost than buying a high temperature printer.

I've been researching 3d printers for years now and almost pulled the trigger on purchasing one several times. I'm probably going to go with a basic Anycubic Kossel Linear model which will cost more in extras for upgrades than the printer itself.

I hate to say it but reddit seems to be the best source of information for 3d printing whether it's news, modifications, buying or troubleshooting.

I also hope to be posting my results on here in the upcoming year.
Neat, I had no idea a heated chamber was necessary and the cheaper ones could be modified to do it. That'll save a lot of money if I can just tinfoil it and get a hardened steel nozzle. Filling the parts seems like too much work for the amount I'm gonna be printing and I need to make the parts lightweight. If I was going for a house robowaifu I wouldn't mind PLA but I want her to be able use power tools, build houses and lift other robots.

Might as well post your progress too. This board is slow as fuck. I'm not even sure if I'm modeling this right. It'd be nice if there was a progress thread where we can get feedback.
Thanks for the sentiments anons, much appreciated. I have a feeling this will be a good year for /robowaifu/

Now, let's all get busy and work hard together towards our goals!
Happy Thanksgiving again, /robowaifu/. This weekend marks the end of our 4th year, and the start of our next one. Happy Birthday! Wow, what a year this has been. No need for me to detail anything other than the continuing recovery and growing prosperity of this board. In fact, by many objective measures we're better off now than we've ever been and every indication is we will soon be/are moving into a more powerful realm than before. -The board itself Thanks to Robi and his backers for continuing to keep this place afloat and to graciously host us here alongside their own forum. That has taken some doing on their part, you can be certain. We now have both a bunker, and a bunker-bunker as well. Archives are being kept current daily. Quite frankly we are in a much more robust position than we were before the sudden migration here. We now have the early beginnings of a topical index (started just today) >>7143 . I anticipate this will help everyone, newcomers and old hands alike, to navigate the complex topics we're addressing here on /robowaifu/. We have more and more interesting and new information coming in at least weekly now. -AI chatbots, voice-synth Thanks primarily to Kokubunji, we now have effective implementations of both AI chatbots (Talk2Waifu), and very impressive voice-synthesis (WaifuSynth) to go along with it this year. Along with the other utilities and research he has done here, he has really distinguished himself as a top scholar and waifuist, and deserves much honor by us on /robowaifu/. We also have at least 2 other AI researchers here as well now, and the entire field is becoming increasingly more accessible to us all thanks to everyone's efforts. -Practical robowaifu prototypes While we seem to have lost many of our other anons from before who were working on their own personal projects, we have been joined this year by Robowaifu Enthusiast-anon who is sharing the nice progress on his wonderful robowaifu project Elfdroid Sophie. She is already coming along very nicely and we're sure she will be even more appealing as time goes on. He deserves recognition both for his progress with her so far, and for his frequent other engagements here on /robowaifu/. He has already distinguished himself as a real team-player here. -New visitors and Anons We have been seeing a marked uptick in the number of first-time posters on /robowaifu/ during this past year despite the turmoil of everything else that's been going on. I consider this a good sign that our shared group vision of "ever-increasing demand for robowaifus by men everywhere" is not only a reality, but is a growing movement as word continues to get out and the idea spreads. I would suggest everyone work hard with their own focus' and projects, because at some point we're going to see the dam burst, and a sudden flood of newcomers will be finding out about this place and will arrive here wanting to know where they can get their own robowaifus. Some will come here to stay and actually help us out ofc. So, we're in pretty good shape overall. I suggest everyone keep communicating with each other, keep sharing and open-sourcing ideas and cross-pollinating them, keep encouraging one another motivationally, and keep making this board a welcoming place for newcomers. Here's to a great 5th year for /robowaifu/. Happy birthday to her!
>>1591 >4th birthday edition >It's been 3 full years since we began Hmm, I'm I confused or did you get it wrong? It's the 3rd birthday then, or not? When talking about in which century we are, then you use the number of what we're in, but in terms of age it's the years passed by, not the year which we're in now.
>>1629 Buy a cheap printer, not one which can do carbon fibers. You can buy that one later, when you have more money and need it. You can add fibers to the outside, with glue or resin, or put metal parts into your plastics. We have a thread for 3D printing, with infos on that >>94. I'm glad that you have that much enthusiasm and optimism, but I'm skeptical about being able to design your waifu, including muscles, in Blender and then print her. Good look, but make sure you can adapt your plans to difficulties you might run into.
>>7225 The OP was made 12months ago. The new post is from today.

>>1630 >Anycubic Kossel Linear Did you have arms and legs in mind when deciding o go for a delta printer? Or lack of space? >>1654 > I want her to be able use power tools, build houses and lift other robots Try building a trophy wive first, sitting on the sofa all day or dancing while holding a pole, then a housewife, then a mother or nanny, and then you can try building Cameron or Alita. Tools will be cheaper then, and you'll have probably more money. >>General >Reddit spacing One empty line is enough here. Thanks.
>>7224 I'm definitely interested in helping backup /robowaifu/. I've never made a backup of an entire imageboard before though (just copied a couple dozen gig of photos and documents onto M-Disc and external HDD). I'm a total noob, but willing to learn tho. BUMP? Is that the "BUMP CLI command line backup utility" I can see on Github that I must download and install onto a Linux distro?
>>7230 >Is that the "BUMP CLI command line backup utility" I can see on Github Haha, someone put it up on Github huh? Yes, I'm the author of BUMP, and yes, it's what I use. I'll push my current version as a zip onto catbox sometime soon and I'll walk you through the process in our /meta2 thread Anon.
Happy thanksgiving /robowaifu/! Your friends over at /monster/ have their own thanksgiving thread going on! Drop by and say hello! https://smuglo.li/monster/res/70236.html#q70236
Happy birthday /robowaifu/ Remember us when the day of the sexbot comes
Happy Thanksgiving and Birthday /robowaifu/! With love, /monster/
Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks to everyone keeping /robowaifu/ alive and growing. I hope next year I'll be able to have thanksgiving with my robowaifu.

>>7244 Where is this board even? Can't it be linked here? I didn't find it on the friends list. Asking for a curious friend. I found out that it often works to put in some hint to another board, so it isn't linked but can be found, like 8/k or 4/diy or alogs/robowaifu ...

>>7228 My reasons for choosing a delta have to do with a rather pie in the sky idea of having it double as a traveling wire electrical discharge machining CNC machine. The guy who runs the AvE youtube channel tried making a similar project awhile back but gave up on it. For most people delta style of printers are a terrible choice, the only benefits are slightly faster print speeds and and a taller print area. Nowadays the conveyor belt bed system for tilted 3d printers has made printing long objects such as arms or legs a non issue.
>>1629 >>1630 >>1654 >>7228 >>7248 Cheers lads. I may end up moving this over to one of our other threads before long, just a heads-up. Not really on-topic ITT.
>>7237 >>7238 >>7239 >>7240 Hi /monster/ always good to see you here! >>7241 Kek. Have one for us Anon. Cheers! >>7244 Hi there ladies, thank you for the well-wishes. May you and yours find the perfect robovixens this coming year. >>7246 >Where is this board even? Can't it be linked here? Good point. I'll go ahead and add them in. Sorry for that oversight, girls. >>3
>>7253 >May you and yours find the perfect robovixens this coming year. If /robowaifu/ can blow open the field in the next year we'll be extremely happy for you. Good luck! >I'll go ahead and add them in. Sorry for that oversight, girls. >Non-feminist females, who knew? What a sexy description! Seriously, some of us probably consider ourselves feminist--for whatever value of the word (if any) excludes the androphobic nutters--we just get off on sharing our men with other women. Cuckqueaning's a kink and/or lifestyle, not a political outlook. Just want to make sure we're not held up as something we ain't necessarily. That said, on a personal level I can understand why you concluded that's what we are. >>7246 >Asking for a curious friend. We're always happy to welcome guests. If your friend is male then please make sure he understands not to loudly trample about. I'm sure it'll be fine, since anon has good taste in friends.
>>7233 Excellent! Thanks anon, it's good to know we have capable programmers supporting the cause!
>>7241 Cheers mate! *pulls out hand from onahole and waves, flinging lube everywhere*
Happy birthday!
>>7259 Haha, my mistake. I'll go ahead and use your own board title. :^) Thanks for the well-wishes /cuckquean/ , I'm sure we'll pull it off eventually at some point. Stay tuned! >>7262 Thanks Anon, much appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Happy birthday board.
>>7340 Thank you kindly Anon! :^)
Thanks for all the well-wishes and warm sentiments everyone. It's comforting to know we have plenty of friends and neighbors who care for us. We've made much progress this past year, but don't stop yet. We still have a way to go to reach our goals, though we can already be encouraged by all our practical advancements thus far. Let's all work hard together to make our 5th year the best one yet!

I'm actually looking for a Happy New Year for 2021 thread, but as of the time of this writing, there isn't one, so I'm posting here instead as the theme is sorta similar -- what can we expect in the coming year? In my case, since I really want to have a successful project this year, I'm approaching from a different angle -- that of hobby grade RC. I only got into hobby grade RC very recently... before my experience was only toy grade. I just couldn't stomach spending on a single chassis or fuselage more money than what a decent 3D printer would cost, until I realized there is so much in the RC community that can be applied to robotics. You can get started cheap with Tamiya, and there are even people building from scratch, especially with cardboard planes. There is so much to learn with regards to radio transmitter / receiver standards, multiple communications channels, first person view, rechargeable batteries, electronic speed controllers -- as arduino roboticists, we're familiar with dual motor PWM drivers, which are just low power low speed versions. Not to mention with hobby grade car RC there's a good mix of plastic, metal, and carbon fiber parts, the aim being to make the highest performance lightweight chassis. I realized there may be an opposite approach to the robowaifu construction problem. So far I've been looking at dolls, starting with huggable things, silicone sex dolls, etc, then scratching my head how the electronics would fit. My 3D modelling has been too much focused on injection molded plastics which would probably crack and fall apart due to the density. The the designs I've had in mind have all been heavy designs which would be impossible to power inexpensively. So why not approach the problem from an RC hobbyist perspective? Lightweightness being paramount, with just a thin sliver of vacuum formed plastic for the bodyshell? Yes, the robowaifu may be dented, but it will be easier for her to achieve optimum movement characteristics, that lively movement. Similar to how a hobby RC is so powerful compared to a mere toy. I also notice how the customizeability and interchangeability of parts in the RC scene is exactly what we want with robowaifus -- pick a scale, and all components will be compatible. Some of us can supply chassis parts, others body shells. Then someone can supply TX / RX modules that enable us to monitor her batteries, her line of sight, temperature, and other parameters. They are already doing this with drift RC cars, albeit with close to thousand dollar transmitters! We can do the same with an STM32 or ESP32, or just hook her up wirelessly to a tablet and have the software guys here create an app. Just like how cars are standardized to 2-3 channels and aircraft to 4-8 channels (6 being optimal), we can have standard channels for communications... e.g. one channel dedicated to robot vision, several dedicated to locomotion, etc. We can pick either a 2S (7.4V) or 3S (11.1V) standard for our motor controllers depending on her size and power requirements. Think of a robowaifu as a very big complex giant scale RC. On the high end will be the near-1:1 scale just like the turbine powered RC jets costing more than a car. On the introductory end would be a few hundred dollar kits in 1:3 scale and smaller.

>>7977 This is an interesting perspective. It sounds like you've been broadening your horizons. I wish you good luck pursuing these goals into 2021! I have some robowaifu related goals myself for this upcoming year, although less technical. I've been developing my art skills for a while, yet I haven't really applied these skills to robowaifu despite being massively into robowaifu/mecha musume for years. I've been doing some humanoid art practice for some time now, but I need to improve my ability to draw mechanical components. For 2021 I'm going to push myself to improve at drawing mechanical & robot girl art. If I manage to produce worthwhile results I'll post them here on /robowaifu/ eventually. I've wanted to make progress on this but I've been procrastinating. My overall goal for 2021 is just to push myself harder in general, not just art. I'm hoping 2021 turns out to be better than 2020. Happy New Year everyone! (actually I'll go ahead and upload the one example I have...) Pic related: A random practice sketch I did a while back of a robot girl moving a box. I'm planning to do more than just practice in 2021.
>>7977 >Lightweightness being paramount, with just a thin sliver of vacuum formed plastic for the bodyshell? I'd follow the model RC plane community's example and use expanded polypropylene foam for the body if you want durability. Apply a layer of extra strong tape to the outside if you want a sleek shiny look and scratch resistance. For a domestic humanoid style robot that's not for use in the bedroom this could work. For a real life example of this design look at how modern light weight bike helmets are made. You might be able to get cheap large sections of the foam from used but damaged high quality insulated shipping crates, it feels much sturdier than typical styrofoam which is extruded polystyrene foam. Also sometimes it's in child safety seats and they're pretty cheap used as they have expiry dates on them.
>>7977 >RC robowaifu This is a good idea IMO and as you point out, brings a lot of advantages & prior art to the table for /robowaifu/ .

Happy New Year /robowaifu/. Remember, we've already burned through one month of our next year thus far, I hope you put it to good use! Just 11 more months until the 5th birthday, so let's all really lean into it and see some great progress happen this year, yea? :^)
Happy belated birthday /robowaifu/, and of course happy now year! This year is gonna get real busy real quick (for me at least) and I aim to make the best of my time. Now just need to recover from the laziness of the holidays, and back into project work! May you all achieve what you need/want to achieve this year!

Whew, seems like it was just a couple of years ago that we were only 3 years old. And now suddenly here we are already 5! Apparently time flies when you're having fun right? :^) Thanks to all our friends and neighbors on the webring and elsewhere, things just keep getting better here. Many kudos to Robi and his supporters for lending us a nice home here. Rest assured Robi et al, that's neither taken for granted, nor lightly. We thank you. And Robi you're a real bro, Bro. You've helped us out time and again, and also kept this place rolling on when many forces around you were trying to kill it. /robowaifu/ is indebted to you for all that effort, mate. Cheers. We'd like to welcome aboard our new board Vol, AllieDev. He's both a talented Anon, and (importantly) active here. I'm positive he will help lend a stability to the board that can sometimes be lacking whenever I'm called away. Please give him your support Anons, I'm sure he will be a blessing to us all. The board at this stage certainly seems to me to be both healthy, and even growing in fact. We've literally doubled our post-count over the past year, for example, and there seem to be several new 'faces' here now. Welcome Anons, we're very glad you're here with us! :^) Various new theme-focused projects are springing up here and there on the board again, and that's all to the better of course. Having a specific waifu(s) theme in mind can often lend a tremendous spark of creativity and motivation for a given project. One that might otherwise be lacking. Do it for her, Anon. There are also a few other robowaifu-themed sites and projects (at long last) popping up around the Internet, and we need no longer feel quite so alone in our efforts here. This is a tremendously good thing IMO, as I've always maintained. Hopefully many other robowaifu forums will spring up during this upcoming 6th year of /robowaifu/ 's existence. The more the merrier, and the sooner our dearly-held dream is alive! :^) I think that technically-speaking, it's both getting better and simpler to move towards our goals--as predicted. Socially, the pressure is mounting against us. Again, as predicted. I think that /robowaifu/ really is the single best 'go-to' spot to understanding the dynamics and goals of a world filled with robowaifus, bar none. Nice job Anons. Very impressive, actually. :^) === I, for one, welcome our new robowaifu overlords will.not.stop. until we succeed at this grand venture. Not as long as there is breath within me. We are creating an earthshaking industry here from the ground up. Truly one that will literally change the entire world in the end should we succeed in our endeavors here. I believe great men like Leonardo da Vinci, Nikola Tesla, and Henry Ford all look down from Heaven with favor upon us here. Not to mention our great Lord Jesus Christ Himself!! With God's blessings, we will all make it Anons! Keep moving forward.
>>14499 -A little history: So, some Anons have expressed curiosity about the history of the imageboard /robowaifu/, and how it came to be here. Here's the story as I recall it as it's founder. If I've made any omissions you're aware of Anons, just point them out and I'll make corrections here. So, let us begin our story. >2'000+ years ago, a man named Pygmalion had a dream... Lol, I'll fast forward just a little bit instead. -Roughly 7 years ago in the 4chan /b/, /g/, and /pol/ boards, there was a growing chatter among Anons about the solution that (still yet-unnamed) robowaifus could lend to the quickly-worsening problem of the Globohomo brainwashing of women, which was going on worldwide. -/g/ and /pol/ seemed to become the focal point for most of the discussions, with /pol/ focusing on the societal woes and issues and how robotics might help, and /g/ becoming more focused on actually solving the technical aspects of their creation in the first place. -/g/ became the primary robowaifu forum for yours truly, and I created the first few threads explicitly for that topic there, as I recall it. I think we toyed around with calling them WaifuBots or various other things back then. Eventually 'Robowaifu' became the chief name used for, well, Robowaifus. -Within just a few months of these first few threads it became blatantly obvious to me and others that two effects were going on apace: 1) 4chan was rapidly degenerating into 4cuck, which it remains widely known as to this day. Anything so blatantly politically-incorrect as honest discussions about how robotics might possibly help solve the "woman problem" were being aggressively squelched by the new, token, SJW 'mods' being installed everywhere there by then. (For all I know it's far worse even today than it was 7 years ago, but I'm unaware as I left the place for good back then.) 2) Men everywhere--not just Anons--were becoming both increasingly aware of the machinations to destroy White society (by corrupting it's womenfolk first and foremost), and of a growing desire to find an effective solution to the problem that didn't involve political or other, nastier, means. -Thus was born /robowaifu/ . It's Anon's own take here on the most reasonable solution to the problems overall, and we've discussed it further in our Welcome Thread (>>3). Please read it if you haven't yet Anon. -We started out life on 8chan->8ch, and we were slowly growing there as a small niche community well enough. -And then--along with thousands of other communities on that fateful day--we were tossed out on our ears due to the decisions made by Jim Watkins (who had absconded earlier with the site from it's founder "Hotwheels"). -After waiting around for a month or so to see if the site would be brought back up, I decided we had all waited long enough and looked around for another home. I soon found Julay.world . -Along with what would grow to be hundreds of other communities, we soon set up shop there and began slowly rebuilding our board. Thankfully, we had a partial backup of the previous board and so weren't starting out completely from scratch. But it was a slow, tedious process in the beginning you can be sure, and initially we weren't much more than a bunker. -Robi eventually decided that Julay had grown beyond his desires--and was also becoming in real danger of doing another 'Crash-the-site-with-no-survivors-2: Electric Boogaloo' glowop, and urged everyone to 'Spread the f**k out, guys!'. Good battle tactics, obviously (and well-advised IMO). -He made the hard decision, and pared down the number of boards to just a handful that would remain through the reboot over into the AlogsSpace phase, of which /robowaifu/ was one. -And so here we are Anons, roughly two years later, and still growing in our new home. === I hope that satisfies any curiosity anyone has about our origins. It's certainly been a fun ride thus far (and an amazing one in many ways too). And it's also one that I'm very eager to continue on with, and to see what we all accomplish together! >=== -minor grmr, prose edit -fix 'AlogsSpace' name

>>14499 Happy Birthday /Robowaifu/! Here's to another productive year. Thank you for having me along Chobitsu. I appreciate the history lesson because it is important to remember what it took to get where we are now. I also take it that a lot of the anons from above are either not with us anymore or lurking? We seem to have had a lot of productive growth recently with various actual parts being made. It's not entirely a bad thing since niche is better than the alternative of turning out like 4cucks.

>>1629 All you need is an "all-metal hotend" (e3d v6 is a good choice) and an enclosure for your printer. I have high-temp materials and have done printing with them. About once a year I snag an ebay deal on Polymax PC, where you can find it for about 35-50 dollars instead of 150 for 3 kilograms. It's almost as strong and stiff as CF Nylon and you don't need a steel nozzle to print with. If you get the items I mentioned, you can start printing a lot of shit for a reasonable price. If you choose NylonX, be prepared for jams, an unreasonable amount of filament drying, possible safety hazards of printing with chopped carbon fibers, and mechanical property changes when it absorbs water. >pic related 5kg PC Max, Nylon CoPA, 4kg 3dxtech PLA, NylonX and 0.6mm NozzleX. All black friday deals.

Happy birthday, /robowaifu/! I hope this past year has been a productive & encouraging one for you. Personally, my plate is overflowing well beyond it's boundaries currently! :^) Not a lot to report out of the ordinary for this past one*, with one clear exception: AI-based Image Generation has clearly made leaps & bounds. I'm quite hopeful that this, along with all the other ever-more-capable AI work will be of great service to Anon & his robowaifu in the future. For example, on-the-fly OC to go right along with her IB shitposts for Anon? In fact, just in time for our birthday weekend, Anon has started a new thread here with some sample diffusion-based outputs (>>17763). This tech can be useful for much more than simply portraits of your waifu, but it's a great start. RW Foundations has made a little progress too. Unsurprisingly, a) the task is bigger than imagined, and b) is delightfully full of scope-creep at this stage! So be it; it's clearly way early yet. :^) Interestingly, Anon has very-timely just made an absolutely great recommendation about data cleaning (>>17779). This may seem at first sight a mundane topic, but as he explains quite well it's actually an exceptionally-valuable component of good waifu AI. We'll be tackling this area as a side project for /robowaifu/ this coming year to see what can be managed towards that goal at this point. This will be a part of the RW Foundations effort in general, as well (>>14409). The idea being that your waifu will be able to assist Anon in working on these data-collection/cleaning efforts, once she has a sufficiently-capable mind. By keeping everything under the same umbrella framework, we gain lots of benefits already explained in that thread. I'll personally be focusing my efforts on Sumomo-chan to begin with as the inaugural waifu. Well, we're still going /robowaifu/, never lose sight of where we've come from in all our striving towards our stupendous goals! :^) Many thanks to our gracious hosts at AlogsSpace, and our site Admin Robi. Keep your head down and keep.moving.forward. Anon. Together, we're all going to make it! :^) --- * : Actually, there's been a few other things (see following posts) >=== -add 'other things' note

>>17784 Thanks for your birthday note, and of course for keeping this place running. We didn't see as much obvious progress as we wanted to, especially not in width, but at a closer look it was still quite a leap forward. I got my PC in April, started with OpenSCAD, and got close to a full body model during the last few months: >>15976. When it comes to move ahead with actually building something, I decided to go for a more simple prototype first, circa a month ago, because I realized the animated full soft body with internal structures would still take me much longer. I think I will be building something towards then end of this or beginning next year. Then I can at least have a simple prototype robowaifu, and starting seriously working on her AI, even in times where I'm temporarily stuck with my modelling efforts. I'm already keeping track of the prices for buying a starter GPU for machine learning. I could afford a more expensive new one, but this would be a waste for me as a beginner, and it would be even more tempting in terms of gaming. Instead I have path planned where I buy one, learn, build me a homeserver, get a better one for my PC and the other one is then available as standby in the server for interference 24/7. Aside from myself, and some progress by other anons here, we had a lot of things going on outside of our board. We know now for sure, that robowaifus will be able to imagine visual things quite well, and soon we are going to have automatic 2D to 3D modelling. New and more powerful CPUs and GPUs also hit the market or are about to, and some will end up in our hands sooner or later. VR tech also got ahead and will be an alternative for those who don't want or can't afford a physical waifu. Combinations with mixed reality seem to also become more likely (well pricing at least at $8k for now). Japan also went ahead with robomaids: https://youtu.be/0LNthFGX4aM
>>17799 YW! Thanks for updating us on other progress over the past year, Anon. Very encouraging! :^)
>>17784 (part 1 of 2) Thank you for creating this board and keeping it running. I found this board just under a year ago, and I find the mix of interests & expertise, the overarching goal, and the just-do-it culture refreshing. I do most of my work on another board with strongly-overlapping motivations, but I can share my retrospective. My focus for the last year has been animation and data, both of which I think have seen significant progress. I have long-term interests in animation because the problem of good, controllable animation seems to be a great playground for adding structured reasoning to machine learning models. Often in machine learning, graphs and matrices are used to represent the results of learning (MCTS, neural networks), but in animation, they're also the data that models need to be trained on. My suspicion is that breakthroughs in dealing with animations will lead to breakthroughs in treating models themselves as data, and that such recursion can be useful for building very powerful training tools. Animation also deals very directly with topological data and layered time series. In math, those two are gateways to very abstract and very powerful tools. In machine learning, it's very rare to have datasets where those things are represented explicitly. I expect breakthroughs in dealing with animation to lead to breakthroughs in modeling many new kinds of data. This year, along with others on the Pony Preservation Project, I've put most of the finishing touches on creating animation datasets from flash source files, of which I have about ~100GB. A small part of this work was done in 2020-2021, but in total, it involved: - Hacking Adobe Animate to support batch processing of flash files. - Creating a rendering engine for flash basically from scratch. - Creating a file format that could support conversions between animation file formats, easy parsing for creating AI task-specific datasets, and easy rendering to support debugging and data exploration. - Coming up with benchmark tasks that could be used to gauge progress on animation AI. There's still some ongoing work cleaning up the last few rendering bugs and exporting more benchmark datasets, but the most difficult parts of the dataset creation are done. I've published two animation datasets so far for modeling assets, and I plan to publish at least two more to get to full animation generation. On the non-animation data side, I have long-term interests in creating high-scale, highly-decentralized data infrastructure that's conducive to machine learning. My initial goals are the following: - Make it easy to use small cloud providers for storage and bandwidth. Small cloud providers provide bandwidth orders of magnitude more cheaply than big cloud providers like GCP, Azure, and AWS. The problem is that small cloud providers have lower reliability and fewer scalable services. This means we need tools that effectively create reliable, scalable data services on top of small cloud infrastructure. - Decouple data scraping from data storage from data download. This is a very big one for me. Developing AI models for new tasks requires data collection, data organization, and data hosting. None of these are things that most AI developers enjoy doing, and so they often don't. On the other hand, there are plenty of archival-oriented people that enjoy collecting data, but very few of these people have AI expertise. Then there are people that enjoy assembling data, often just for the sake of analyzing it and seeing what's going on. With the current technology, you need one person (or a tight-knit group) capable of doing all of these things if you want to develop AI for new tasks. This unnecessary coupling is a huge bottleneck for the growth of AI development unaffiliated with big companies. - Scale data distribution. All file hosting providers have transfer caps. The only way today to distribute data in a way that scales automatically with its popularity is to use torrents, but torrents come with the severe bottleneck that they're immutable. This is untenable for large datasets, where data needs to be regularly modified to keep it clean and up-to-date with content feeds. The problem with all centralized file hosting providers is that users cannot contribute bandwidth, and so all of the costs for distributing data falls on a small number of individuals willing to front the costs. Finding such people requires luck, good will, trust ("can sharing this other person's data going to get me in trouble with my country's law enforcement?"), and coordination. Even individually, each of these things is a huge bottleneck. - Enable the creation of data subsets. Large datasets are becoming increasingly common, and most people training or adapting models aren't able to handle these. For foundation models like GPT-J and Stable Diffusion, people seem quick to develop fine-tuning strategies that work with less data (softprompts, textual inversion). This enables people to create what amount to customized models with minimal (sometimes free) compute resources. For these people, it needs to be possible to download only curated subsets of data, and it should be possible for downloaders themselves to specify which subset of data without coordinating with data seeders.
>>17806 (part 2 of 2) This year, I've gotten familiar with IPFS, which is basically a decentralized torrent protocol with some very nifty features. In particular, I've: - Learned to create, manage, augment, and distribute a 10 TB dataset on Hetzner servers with some tooling built around IPFS. This was a proof-of-concept showing that it's possible to store large amount of data and provide large amounts of bandwidth cheaply. Right now, I get only 8 mbps per server due to CPU bottlenecks. I've tested some tricks for getting this up to ~30 mbps per server, and I'm pretty sure I can get it higher if I spend more time on it. - Learned to create what amounts to index files: files that store file organization without storing file content. I set up scrapers that store data in a format ideal for scraping, uploaded the data to seed servers that store the data in a format ideal for data transfer, and downloaded the data with a file organization that's ideal for normal usage. This was a proof-of-concept to show that it is in fact possible to decouple data scraping from data storage from data download. - Tested adding bandwidth to existing files from an unaffiliated server. Again, this was a proof of concept showing that anyone can add bandwidth to anybody else's files, which enables data distribution to scale with popularity. - Learned to work with IPFS's JavaScript APIs, particularly to load file structures, create new file structures, and download data. This part will require upstreaming some bug patches to IPFS, but I believe I have enough here to demonstrate that it's possible to do enough end-user functionality from a browser interface, so distribution of these tools will not be a limiting factor. - Developed some initial tooling for create (fanfiction) text data subsets. I've learned a lot about organizing data, making interfaces that work for a broader audience, and making the necessary tooling & data available so people can create data subsets more easily. There's still a lot more to do here, but the exploratory work is largely done. All of this seems feasible, and probably with only a few months of effort. Lastly, I had smaller attempts to make higher math more accessible, both in the F=ma thread and elsewhere. I'm not really happy with my results on this front, and seeing how similar expository-posts-on-difficult-topics go, I think this strategy is not a good one. But seeing how much interest and expertise there is here, I'm convinced that more diffision of knowledge would be extremely valuable. I'll toss in some stray thoughts on this. First the problems. - I suspect that text is mostly only good for labeling things and explaining the deductive glue of intuition. For math at least, many aspects of intuition are spatial or physical, and text explanations are only good there after people have already gotten the right picture in mind. - A lot of explanations only work when people know which things they should be focusing on, and text is not good for placing explicit focus on things. This applies to both english text and equations. On a related note, natural language is often too imprecise, and equations are often too semantically-detatched. In both circumstances, it's hard to figure out what's worth focusing on. - Explanations are often incomplete, and people can't "experiment" with an explanation to develop a more complete picture. Here's my take on where a solution might come from. - There's one person that's exceptionally good at explaining math: 3blue1brown. He combines exposition, some interaction (offers problems to solve), and visuals. The software he uses to create visuals (manim) is open source. This is all good, but a video explanations probably wouldn't work for us, and a significant chunk of his teaching strategy depends on the video format. Specifically, he can narrate over visuals simultaneously while they're playing. That's not possible without a vocalized explanation. I can see vocalized explanations fitting into this board if we have waifus narrating things with TTS, but otherwise, it's probably not going to work. This would be very high-effort on the part of the person explaining, and every low-effort on the part of the people consuming. - Chris Olah and distill.pub are exceptionally good at explaining difficult concepts, and they don't use audio. They accomplish something similar to "narrating over a video" through UI widgets the user can use. Of course the user knows how they're manipulating the widget, and while they're doing that, they can observe what effect is has on the visuals. We can't use UI widgets on this board, but we can link to Colab notebooks that use manim.js or d3js alongside Jupyter widgets. This again would be high-effort on the part of the person explaining, low effort for consuming. With some heroic effort to create better tooling, I think this can be medium-effort for creating explanations, with the caveat that it will probably only work for math. That's probably too limiting a caveat. - For non-visual explanations, visuals with widgets don't work, but I suspect you can get a similar effect to "narrating over a video" with "commented code," at least for people that are comfortable reading code. I suspect that even simple, crappy pseudocode can get a point across much more clearly and concisely than exposition in cases where an explanation is about, e.g., functional relationships between things rather than deductive relationships. In cases where code is appropriate, I think this would actually be low-effort for the person explaining and low-effort for the people consuming. That's interesting enough to me to warrant some exploration and experimentation. Anyway. I look forward to the next year. Things are now moving at a breakneck pace, due largely to open source research & development, and the world is still speeding up. After nearly a decade going at it, I've finally hit the point where robowaifus seem to be entirely possible within a reasonable timeframe. There's still a lot of work to do, but the future promising.
>>17806 >>17807 Remarkable stuff Anon, truly pro-grade. Thanks for your well-wishes, and we're mighty glad to have neighbors like you Anons here on the Internet.
Reading this >>17806 made me think of IPFS, and if it was the solution, but you came to that conclusion yourself. How hard was it tomlearn, how much time (estimated)? Great work, btw.
>>17849 It's a huge pain in the ass to learn, but it's worthwhile for what it provides. It probably took me about two months wall time to learn everything so far, mostly slowed down by sparse documentation and the fact that some things aren't obvious unless you're dealing with enough data. Saying that makes me realize that I should write a guide based on what I've learned... I can make that a high priority once I get back to IPFS stuff, probably in 3-6 weeks.
>>17853 >Saying that makes me realize that I should write a guide based on what I've learned... That would be nice to have; we sure wish you would, Anon.

>>18534 Yes sir! Also Mr. Chobitsu, I have been looking into making my own robowaifu (or at least automata). Any recommendations on how to start? I thought I should just a bunch of motors then go from there. Would it be advisable to macgyver one of those arduino robot kits into a proto-robowaifu? Please, a penny for your thoughts. God bless! :]
>>18598 >Please, a penny for your thoughts. OK, but lol please don't refer to me as 'Mr. Chobitsu'. Normally IBs remain anonymous, but this board is an exception to that rule, since we're kind of like a small engineering interest of sorts. Just call me Anon for now, alright? :^) So, I'd suggest you think about what you want to do, then spend a lot of time (probably at least a week's worth for a typical newcomer) doing nothing but simply poring over the board. It's a sizeable pile of information and it's a lot to go through. Just be patient with yourself Anon, you don't have to understand everything at first. Then (and only then) I'd suggest you fill out a survey post (via >>15486, but put your response post in the current /meta, >>18173). Once you've done that, consider yourself welcome'd to the team! I'd say just join the board's community-project named MaidCom (>>15630), introduce yourself to the project lead Kiwi there, with your new board handle. I hope that helps Anon, don't hesitate to ask questions in the current /meta thread for any reason whatsoever (>>18173). Cheers! :^)
>>18598 First of all, maybe don't try to develop your own completely from the scratch, but look into what others did and what kind of small mobile robots are available outside the board. Then start with something small or improve something. A good starting point is getting a cheap 3D printer (FDM) and start learning how to model things. Another would be to learn about silicone molds. Then there are the fields of AI with sub-fields like just conversational AI, or things like electronics and motors. The later requires reducers and doesn't make much sense without knowing how to build a body. Other than that Chobitsu gave you some good links where to start.
>>18600 >>18601 thank you very much anons!! :] I will try my best!!
Happy Birthday /robowaifu/ ! This has been a really big year for the AI side of the house with the opening of the LLM floodgates to DIY anons. We've also welcomed some newcomers here with really interesting projects. My apologies for this being so brief, I may expand it later around Christmas season. But please share your takes about the past year for robowaifus ITT, Anons.
>>26581 shouldnt it be on 9/9 because of >>1
>>26586 >shouldnt it be on 9/9 because of >>1 Do you mean our birthday? No, that day was when we started the reconstruction after the glowniggers destroyed 8ch. Confer : (>>14500). I began the board during Thanksgiving weekend, 2016; and anons around the world had already been talking about robowaifus for 2+ years before that point.
>>26581 I was expecting much more progress from myself during this year. Unfortunately, some things I have to figure out take me longer, partially because I'm procrastinating since I don't want to take care of that stuff, partially because things are often difficult. That said, me stopping to try using OpenScad to create my own version of "Make Human" will cut down a lot of the anticipated work. Also, AI made generally a lot of usable progress and I finally got into hosting my own LLMs and having an overview of which ones exist. I also refreshed my Python, and started on working pattern matching and a chat interface.
>>26593 I really appreciate your contributions to /robowaifu/ this past year, NoidoDev. In some ways, you've carried the board more than any other regular here this year. Thanks very much, we all appreciate you, Anon. Looking forward to seeing all you accomplish with your stated goals this coming year, Anon. Cheers. :^)
