sauce on pics?
>>3408 I believe they're from a project called "smart doll".
>>366 Some of the items in the playlists are simply amazing OP. I'd like to breakdown some of them for us. I think they'd really contribute to the board.
>"Ready for Youtube censorship…" Lel, OK brickintheyard.com moves to the front of the queue for evaluation
>>3411 Unfortunately they don't pass the TOR test, so no. :P
>>3409 Nah, those are custom dollfies, the smart doll has different shapes and skin tones.
>>3410 Most defiantly! I'm trying to wrap my head around how a lot of it works mechanically. That way I can try implement a variation of the more advanced projects after I've built my initial prototype.
>>3414 I've been wondering how to implement eyeball gimbals and eyelids for a while. Can't wait till we are prototyping this ourselves.
>>3415 Eyes are so important they probably warrant their own thread.

]]3206 >The more I research the scale of a humanoid companion, the more I realise it'll take the ideas of many Robowaifu Technicians to complete the project. That's definitely truth. Someone once said "None of us is as smart as all of us." In some way, we are kind of like the earliest hackers of personal computers. Search 'Homebrew Computer Club'. This is literally frontier work here. In 20 years robowaifus will be commonplace but definitely aren't right now. It's kind of like lots of anons around the world are all working towards this goal and we all get to define an entire new industry from the ground up. Pretty neat actually.

not exactly waifu related, but interesting here https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=8vIT2da6N_o
>>3430 Awesome video man, appreciate it.
Video I found of some guy's Robo Waifu project. Unfortunately his website/forum www.anime2real.com is down so I can't access any of the treasures that were once there. I can't even find an archive. Funny enough, it was this dead project that lead to my new obsession with robotics and software. So even if it's primitive, I really do take joy from seeing his hard work. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=Fh2lbESw374
>>3432 we must re-locate this anon, obviously.
>>3433 Good idea anon. I found him on Twitter and Facebook so I'm just gonna send the guy a link to the board.
Awesome Eye Mechanism and Application into a Head. This is the design I plan to use for my head's eyes. Once I'm on holiday in a month or so I should have the time to learn Blender and 3D print the frame whilst working on other projects. If I build something good, I'll upload the files and post a tutorial for other anons. I'm thinking of combining this with the OLED eye system to get something awesome. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=8XREW9Vp4w8
>>3435 >>3436 Thank you nice design idea there anon.
>>3436 It looks like he used the same two servos to move the eyes, but two separate servos to move the eyelids. So this robot could wink but not cross its eyes.
>>3438 Exactly! Also, the eye movement is a lot more natural because of how the wires are attached to the eyes. So unless someone's fetish is being cross-eyed this rig will give us a very high quality outcome with minimal complexity. Mind you, for the sake of ahegao I may be… forced to remove the cross support so both eyes can move independent of each other.

>>3443 It's a good design, especially using shrink-wrap in place of springs and wires. The only problem I see with it is how it bends when working, so a metal or stronger plastic alternative would be needed for the base.
A more primitive version of >>3444 made by some Japanese fella. It's still cool though, it illustrates why OLED/LED eyes with actual eyelids is superior to just an animation. Creators Twitter: https://twitter.com/joker1_ >missing filename: 試着の結果.mp4
>>3446 Yes, I completely agree that for this type of form-factor real eye behaviors are essential to expressing a comfy psyche for our robowaifus. Pure Visual Waifus notwithstanding ofc. Then practically anything goes as long as it adheres to the animation Principle of Appeal.
>>3423 A couple more DS Doll videos I really love.

>>3449 On the topic of DS Doll, it appears that they're using hydraulics for the arms. Might be something for us to look into.
>>3449 Interesting tbh. As I see it, the primary issue with hydraulics is that many of these oils are at least partly toxic to a degree, and the maintenance and management of fluids in a mobile system are dubious at best tbh. Still, it does afford the possibility of (super)human-tier strength levels in a mobile platform using current technology. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is one of the established goals in the Welcome to /Robowaifu/ bread. So yea.
>>3449 >2nd vid dat countdown doe >implying implications kek
>>3449 >3rd Almost ready to climb out of the Uncanny Valley imo.
>>3449 Last point Fotamon, that is a remarkably well-articulated endoskeleton as well. >Any sauces other than the incredibly-pozzed Twatter though?
>>3451 >and the maintenance and management of fluid systems in a mobile platform*
>>3451 Hydraulics can be made in a completely sealed system without worrying about the oils. Yes, you could in theory build a super strong waifu, she'd just be power hungry. You only start to save money compared to gear motors at very high strengths. It seems like an interesting and exciting prospect but, it's very expensive and finicky. Also, tends to have jerky movements. Fantastic for heavy industry where something stronger then pneumatics is needed and the increase in cost is warranted. For waifus, yes, you can make her with very slim cylinders but, you're honestly better off using your motors that would drive the hydraulics to just drive cabling. Cables transfer torque more efficiently anyways. I haven't the slightest idea of why they would use hydraulics. Then again I've only used hydraulics industrially, maybe they're found some way to mitigate its inefficiency? Using a regulated internal engine would give them good run times at the expense of increased complexity, need for regular check ups, and she'd need to drink gas. She'd also small like an engine. Overall, unless you're very rich with access to your own manufacturing equipment, hydraulics isn't the best idea. Pneumatics would be better if you're going to try to lower costs. Though, gear motors are honestly the best. (I have built, troubleshooted, and repaired hydraulic/pneumatic systems. Hydraulics were a pain in my ass, so I'm a tad biased against them. Loved working with pneumatics though.)
>>3457 >using your motors that would drive the hydraulics to just drive cabling Genius. Kiwi, you may very well have found the sweet spot of strength/price/performance.
>>3454 They have a website and YouTube account but they have a lot fewer videos on them. So Twatter is our best bet if we wanna stalk their progress. >>3457 It's a recent change they've made. I assume they're either saving money with hydraulics, wanted a sleeker looking demo model, or ran into a problem with cables and gears.
>>3459 >So Twatter is our best bet if we wanna stalk their progress. I feel you on this. Proceed kind sir.
>>3449 Nice skeletal design but I think most of those plastic parts are aesthetic. Seems they were going for cyberpunk. On the other hand, would be great to have a more steampunk internal skeleton, I would definitely love my waifu to look like a clockwork doll when you open her up, especially if she were wearing a maid outfit. I think I'll just need to use brown/silver/gold colored plastics and go Rococo even if it's really just a waste of material.
>>3461 > would definitely love my waifu to look like a clockwork doll when you open her up, especially if she were wearing a maid outfit. >i can only get so erect.mov STOP. Just shut up and take my money anon.
>>3461 It's definitely possible, check out what Disney did. >missing filename: DISNEY’S NEW ANIMATRONICS.mp4
>>3463 While I find the character design itself somewhat loathsome, the technical aspect of the animatronic is remarkable tbh. I particularly like how parts of the structural system are themselves and form basically a 'metamaterial' similar to what anon mentioned here ]]3286
>>3464 >are themselves flexible*
Awesome robot hand in early stages of development. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=Kfh8puOPiTk
>>3466 That is actually pretty interesting anon.
>>3426 a realdoll that can look you in the eye while fucking
>>3466 i challenge anyone to create a robotic hand that can grab your dick and jerk it off until completion.
I believe this video and the 3D model are a part of this >>3446 project. >missing filename: 9-7N_wWTwfy8LCos_(1).mp4
>>3471 Nice to see these new views of it. Certainly looks similar. It occurs to me that it's always good for us to see projects at all phases of development not just at the finished stage. Helps us see and understand the progression better.
>>3471 Cutest robo face, any way to get his step files or STL's?
>>3473 You can always ask him. His Twitter: https://twitter.com/Spri_ta I literally got Twitter to follow these projects, so I'd encourage you to follow these projects there for updates.

This is the best anime style blinking project I've ever been able to find. The eyelids are a MASSIVE obstacle we're going to have to overcome if we want a more realistic anime style waifu.

A website containing a trove of sex robot projects with links to the creators. http://dollautomation.com/index.php/category/robotic/page/3/
This creator seems to be on a whole nother level. The original was ST-00 which passed Robo One qualifications. This one can dance along with MMD. https://twitter.com/med_mahiro
>>3483 Damn, that's some smooth movements, it looks very fluid. I'm honestly surprised he managed to get it to such a high quality.
>>3483 Any chance you could convey a sense of his work to us here on /robowaifu/ anon? I'm not going to click on Twatter.
This Rem bot has literally been around for a year, not sure if anyone knew already. Who was the Rem fan here? http://www.mthung.com/ >>3485 streamable okay? https://streamable.com/bcdhs
>>3486 >streamable okay? Sure that's fine. That's pretty remarkable. I suppose there's some sort of Bowden-cable like arrangement inside the limbs?
>>3483 >Robo One qualifications Had to look that up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robo_One
>>3483 A little older video showing the system inside the shell. Not much detail tbh, would really like to see some good engineering breakdowns. Translated to English would be ideal ofc. https://streamable.com/gvwvq
>>3483 Neat. Now if only he could scale it up.
>>3422 Who cares about details like that?. As long as they can clean, cook and have a onahole build in, it done.
>>3492 pretty sure having some kind of emotional interaction with your robowaifu will long-term be more valuable than just an over-sized masturbation tool anon.
I found this in my old files, but I can't remember where I got this from. >missing filename: MAID ROBOT OH FUCK.jpg
>>3494 It's located on this site, but can't find out any details about it there unfortunately. maybe someone else can. http://kgm84.egloos.com/m/2544788
this korean guy turns out to be a real fanatic for robots of all kinds, and has a number of posts about robowaifus too. http://kgm84.egloos.com/3263089
Guess I'm back to casually sharing more cool robotics projects. If anyone finds any, please share them here. This one some of you will recognize from the thread, it's the sex robot from DS Doll. They've changed her quite a bit and have some funny videos of her on their YouTube channel. >missing filename: Valentines_Day_Sale_at_DS_Doll_Robotics!.mp4
It would seem that companies (and Robowaifu Technicians) in general are too focused on the face. Most the projects I find focus a lot on it despite it not being that important. Why hasn't a single builder gotten us a robo-waifu that can snuggle with us? Probably because faces take a lot of time and money. >missing filenames: Emma_AI_sex_robot_for_Sale_%E2%80%94_Real_love_sex_doll_tr.mp4 NEXT_GENERATION_AI_SEX_ROBOT_DOLLS.mp4
>>3497 That's a pretty interesting bodyframe. Know of any technical diagrams of it anon? >>3498 TBH, we're all hardwired literally from birth to be tightly focused on the faces of those around us, so it's a natural and honest drive. However, as our fascination with cute anime waifus shows, you can definitely manage an affection towards a female character whose face is plainly not fully human. I'd say this is a common theme here on /robowaifu/ now. The 'cute waifus, not slutbots' approach. The Uncanny Valley is very real, and is still a long way off from being solved. And even when if? it does get solved, it will be very expensive for the first generation or two to recoup R&D costs.
>>3499 Afraid not, all I know is that it's made by DS Doll and they've a lot of videos showing off their technology. See these posts below for more videos or search them on YouTube. Also please let me know if you find any technical plans, I love to get my hands on them. >>3449 >>3423 Speaking of robo-cuties. I've been considering the idea of using soft-robots alongside my 3D printer to build a basic waifu that can crudely snuggle with you. Unfortunately, I'd have to prototype at a adult scale for legality's sake (more expensive), and my lack of experience. I don't even know if it's worth trying. Probably would do me more good to just release robo-waifu propaganda in the form of video games instead. Especially considering my roommates lol.
>>3500 Thanks anon, will do. >that can crudely snuggle with you We have at least one daki bread and the notion is fairly popular here and elsewhere. Maybe something like that? I don't know what to tell you about your roommates haha, I'm in the same boat. Eventually I think I'm just not going to worry about what others think about it. The obvious failure of Western women to their societies has made the robowaifu-pill an obvious choice for millions of men tbh. It seems inevitable atp.

>>3501 I'm still larping as vanilla in case my true power level could affect my future career prospective and/or damage my relationship with my family. Anyways, I think those electric muscles are a long way off. Although they'll be selling kits in Q2 2019 which might be interesting if we can replicate them or buy them on the cheap. https://www.artimusrobotics.com/product I'm more so considering air-muscles at this point. It looks relatively simple in concept. I didn't know air pumps could be so quiet so the prototypes can just have the majority of the tubes outside the body. Once we have a basic working humanoid (sit, cuddle, fidget, maybe move arms). An effort can be made in hiding such technology inside the waifu; but the battery is still a problem in such a case so I dunno. I'd be happy with a glorified torso and head tbh if it was done well enough, then add arms for cuddling, maybe pretending to play vidya, etc. BTW, there's a tutorial on how to build this muscle system. Might be a cheaper and easier alternative than servos and whatnot. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-air-muscles!/ >missing filename: Large Air Muscle.mp4
>>3510 >https://www.artimusrobotics.com/product Thanks for the heads up anon. They look like a good team, I hope they can manage a mass-producible product we could actually use as hobbyists. Yes, I think pneumatics are a reasonable possibility, much more so than hydraulics. They are widely used in the Dark Ride animatronics industry, but they are in fact still noisy. But for the exact same reasons they work in that field, they would also work in robowaifus. As far as just an upper body goes it would in fact be much easier to manage the development of but ofc it's not fuggable. Anon's little moebot-tier robowaifu project ]]4637 is appealing enough an idea and shows that some robowaifus can be just for huggs, not for fuggs. Thanks for the instructables link anon.
The future is now fellas >missing filename: 27C6F6sm6jnfrLzz.mp4
>>3512 >"And Baby Upchuck can can make real baby puke. Just fill her water tank and she can vomit on demand!" kekd that bodyframe looks interesting anon, sauce?
We need IRL Drossel.
Seriously, I hate the whole "uncanny valley" idea designers have. If I want to fuck a robogirl, I wanna fuck an actual robogirl, not some creepy doll. I want some IRL Tsugu-min, not the "I feel fantastic" mannequin.
>>3514 >>3515 I think we're all onboard with this for the present anon. I would love to have a robowaifu mostly indistinguishable from a beautiful young woman, but that's not going to happen anytime soon, so for now cute irl animu catgrill meidos in tiny mini skirts are our best option–and will be a fun alternative even in the future.
>>3515 >Tsugu-min Is she a robowaifu? Care to post some pics of her with context in the 'RWs in Media' bread if so?
>>3517 She's the robogirl you play as in Contra: ReBirth, but she's fairly obscure, as little art of her exists.
>>3513 https://twitter.com/tibadollkoubou It's a doll some Japanese guy is building. Nothing electrical, however it apparently has a good range of motion; so there's the potential to add some actuators.
>>3519 Thanks anon, some good references there. He is obviously very dedicated and I wouldn't be surprised if he could be convinced to take the robowaifu-pill tbh.
Found this campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/doetherobot/iris-secure-affordable-and-offile-social-robot/ It's an Rpi-based offline robot, I like the philosophy of the creator, the opposite of what a robot envisioned by a corporation would be. Seems very fitting for my purpose, I could use this as a base to expand upon. I hope they succeed.
>>3521 Yea an anon has been saying here since the beginning we should let the characterization of our robowaifus allow for the fact they are, in fact, robots. That it would be endearing in fact to have them acknowledge their mistakes in this context. Seems like this developer intends to take a similar approach. Thanks for the link anon. I also like his plans for both interacting with it and programming it. I wish him luck.
http://age-of-aincrad.com/forum/threads/android-2-flugel-3d-printing-robotics.3984/ Someone was planning to make an IRL drossel. It was cool, but the model he used was shit. I'm planning to have a project where one guy edits the model to accommodate servos and shit, one guy 3d prints/CNCs the parts (aluminum and silicone will be very important), one guy attaches the electronics, and one guy installs the AI. We will obviously need better models, and since the only models easily downloadable are Charming models (which while cute, will be fucking impossible because of her lack of feet). We may have to employ the unholy wizard known as ADR, because while he is a dickgirl loving nigger, he has good models that can be edited to accommodate electronics.
>>3523 Sounds like a plan anon. Please start an independent project thread when you've assembled all the details for an OP.
This guy makes and sells his own 3D printed moebot clang waifus called Automoiselles, very good reference for mechanical designs. https://twitter.com/OrzTaki https://takirunn.booth.pm/ I've been on this forum long enough that I'm graduating from 2-3 to 4 and maybe even 5-6 on the clang scale.
>>3525 Very cute, thanks for the links anon. >I've been on this forum long enough that I'm graduating from 2-3 to 4 and maybe even 5-6 on the clang scale. kekd <ywn having a starship-class, disembodied AI robowaifu ;~;
>>3525 I like the idea of using screws for the joints seen here and on the EOS smart daughter Found a lot of similar kits/figures as well on Japan twitter.
>>3527 I searched for eos smart daughter and wow what a treasure trove of mechanical and biomechanical designs: https://megasuculpture.jimdo.com/
>>3528 The "hitogata" image is really cute. I remember one guy saying that robowaifus could be really relatable if they were made conscious of their robotic nature, and I think this can also be applied to their designs.
Another brother of humanoid robotics has returned after years of nothing. The guy's making an advanced humanoid, here's his latest video where he's testing a new limb joint actuator.. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=I9EPkoC35gY
>>3530 I messed up, here's the newest video. He reminds me of an 90s animu mad scientist with all his fancy retro gadgets . Check him out! https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=uH-7HPS45DY
Advanced humanoid hand builder and designer explaining how it works, what he learned and what went wrong. TL;DR - it looks awesome but working hands are incredibly complex and should be an afterthought. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=l6xqTcLXXC8
Ford's bipedal robot also looks very promising. Much more streamlined than Atlas. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=ghmmYQlFNbo
Fluid Humanoid Robot. This actually looks really awesome and gets me excited for the future of wheelchair bound robot-waifus. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=h3Svu--qmeY
>>3534 $26,000 hmm? Well, still cheaper than alimony.
Many of these I do find the faces to be a bit disconcerting, but what's under the skin is absolutely amazing. We can't be more than a decade away from factory produced robowaifus.
I really like the LED eyes in >>3419 so that gets me thinking, until we get it to the point where the facial movements and materials are conducive to really kissing your waifu would it be easier to use a contoured display for a face? That would allow for full accurate representation of your 2D waifu as depicted in media as well as simplifying and reducing the cost of one of the most complicated and expensive portions of the robot.
>>3537 Yeah, that's what I was thinking or we just go higher on the >>>/clang/ scale until technology catches up.
Probably the most convincing humanoid I've seen motion-wise. That could almost be mistaken for a real dude wearing a mask. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=u6iVUgKNJy8
another vid showing the insides https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=5qteMlMAaNM
>>3540 those animatronics look familiar, if I recall the arms, torso, and head are all maneuvered by cables. This may just be a puppet with cleverly hidden strings. If it is self actuated though then this is an even more impressive design.
>>3541 I'm scratching my head trying to figure out why the servo hum is barely audible, at that size it's supposed to be all you can hear. I was going to post another find, vid related, stop motion convinces me that the articulation in a typical anime action figure is enough, just need a way to swap out face plates and hand positions on the fly. https://streamable.com/eg6m7
>>3530 >>3531 >>3532 >>3533 >>3534 >>3539 >>3540 >>3542 thanks for the videos anons. i'm particularly glad to see Alexander Bersenev picking up his robot laboratory work again.

>>3544 http://speecys.com/ Ex-Sony Aibo engineer. Very legit, the only problem is it looks expensive (only renting to businesses for now, and all those patents).
>>3544 Thanks for the link anon. I assume everyone notices the entire thing is supported on a crane boom from the back, probably heavy af. Nice to see it though.
>>3547 Yeah, most of these kinds of robots are. It makes me optimistic for a decade in the future though. I just hope 30+ year-old me has nether impregnated and been trapped by 3dpd or lost my desire for a robo companion. Fuck knows what'll happen to any of us between now and then.
OK, Fotamon. Sorry but that's all I have bro. Hopefully we can recover some of these video files at some point. Cheers mate. :^)
>>3502 Since the main instance seems to be having issues atm, here's an alternate onion that seems in good health: http://axqzx4s6s54s32yentfqojs3x5i7faxza6xo3ehd4bzzsg2ii4fv2iid.onion/playlist?list=PLAtoHywa4Q2Nc_-r5g1bHlHdcnGJ3oM-4
>>3549 Appreciated! I got a lot of crap due over the next week but will see about dumping what extra files I still have into the thread when I get the chance. :)
>>3552 Sounds like a plan, take your time no hurry. GOOD LUCK WITH EXAMS
>>3550 hmm, i wonder if it had anything to do with google's recent captcha-defeat changes?https://github.com/omarroth/invidious/issues/1183
Apparently you had saved pretty much every post in the thread. This thread actually contains more robowaifu projects than I had saved to my HD. So that worked out pretty well.
>>3739 Hi Fotamon, how did exams go? Heh, I do have most of the content from the board apart from 8 threads or so where I'll have to rely on the archives pages. If you have any of the files marked with >missing filename: please post them ITT. I tried to determine the original filename so you might be able to find it in your filepile simply by searching that. Good luck with the job hunt bro. First gig out of school is always a big one! :^)
>>3500 >Unfortunately, I'd have to prototype at a adult scale for legality's sake (more expensive) She only has to not be anatomically correct, like having bigger eyes, maybe some arm showing its a robot. Hip/waist ratio and face proportions might also help.
Look what I've found while looking for models of female torsos on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:833163 Some guy with his own fembot project. Video was deleted by YouTube...

>>3476 This guy is on Twitter: @missile_39 and @adachirei0 And here is his webpage, last update was last year: http://mechanical-girl.seesaa.net/ And also with more pics: https://camp-fire.jp/projects/12475/activities/132053?s=09#main
>>5361 Wow that's impressive actually. Obviously a mad-scientist at work Terry would be proud. :^)
>>5361 I remember when this guy built a life-size singing Hatsune Miku using what looked like some kind of high-density styrofoam attached to servos and steel hinges. Good to see he has adopted 3D printing now as well. Inspirational stuff!
>>5371 Just a guess, but the pink material looks a lot like some kind of foam, or near-enough. Still, if it's that same guy glad to see he's still at it. He became a minor sensation and made some spending money taking his Miku-chan robowaifu around and just showing her off IIRC.
>>5378 Pink? You mean the whole shell in very light brown or sand colored? This one is clearly 3d printed. Or were you referring to something in the Miku build video: >>3475 Didn't watch that (yet).

>>5413 Yeah that's pretty adorable. The guy has a good sense of character animation obviously. Thanks Anon.
Immervision is talking about a humanoid robot, named Joyce, coming out of the computer vision community. I understood one part of the article so that she would soon be available as a set to be build. However, haven't seen anything about it yet. On the site I only found the claim: "Soon, JOYCE’s programming interface will made available to the computer vision community to run experiments and upgrade her capabilities." I understand it so, that they want to show her the first time on some summit soon (might be cancelled bc Covid). Maybe the parts are freely available, and how to rebuild her will be explained after release. Otherwise it's just one more Sophia (Hanson Robotics). I also wonder how she's going to look like: "Joyce comes equipped with three ultra-wide-angle panomorph cameras calibrated to give 2D hemispheric, 3D stereoscopic hemispheric, or full 360 x 360 spherical capture and viewing of the environment." Introduction video: https://youtu.be/1fyDJu5IxCA Article: https://www.eejournal.com/article/the-joyce-project-to-equip-machines-with-human-like-perception/ Homepage: https://www.immervision.com/joyce/ YT-channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/ImmerVision
>>5622 Thanks for the update Anon, please keep us posted about her. >Otherwise it's just one more Sophia (Hanson Robotics). I sort of hope not, tbh. What Hanson is doing with her is pretty sketchy IMO, and she isn't particularly appealing either.
>>5413 Segawa is selling STL files for Handmade Kibo-chan (link in video description) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJYUOxxDW4k Apparently it's been out for a month already (I was too busy being distracted by Vtubers to notice). Once I understand the mechanism -- part of why his animations are so smooth and lifelike -- I'm going to merge it with one of my wheeled or tank tread projects to make a wheeled Kibo-chan.
>>5744 >I'm going to merge it with one of my wheeled or tank tread projects to make a wheeled Kibo-chan. You must post videos of such cuteness here when you do!
>>5744 That is an interesting neck mechanism he's got there!

hamcat_mqq just updated after a yearlong hiatus on twitter. [machine-translated]"It's been a while, but it's completed! Wow Wow (Wow Wow ⌒▽⌒ ) Before I knew it, I forgot Twitter, Before I knew it, the cat that had been a year old was fine. To be honest, I can't see anything when I'm absorbed in it. Specifications Whole body seamless life-size doll Silicone skin / soft urethane foam Aluminum base Metal frame 150cm 12kg" More pics on his account, the nude pic there you can see his workshop. There have been 1/3 scale silicone animedolls before, as well as near-full-scale 90cm-100cm "stylized" sexdolls, as well as hard as rock fullscale waifu statues. IMHO this is actually the first time I've seen a fullscale silicone waifudoll.
>>7707 I love the work he's done on her eyes and eyelashes!

>>7712 He seem to have started the way I planned to do it, and so far didn't make it, with some differences. Using tubes and small ball joints is a great idea for the first model (pic 26), but knees and elbows in the human body aren't ball joints but hinges. That's something I would probably honor right from the start. The shoulder area is fascinating, and something to keep in mind, though. He seem to have moved away in his later designs. Also, some of his arm designs (pic 17&19) are freaking great. With these two bones to make them twist similar to real ones and also making the bones feel like real that way. Of course, one would need to find a way to move them with motors and/or muscles.
>>7719 oh, didn't look at the knees well enough before. They are actually way better than some simple ball joints.
>>7719 >Tibia and Fibula design Excellent. Biomemetics are really the way to go.
>>3521 > I hope they succeed. Agreed. Do you know of any progress on his project? Just in case you're following it.

>>7719 >Of course, one would need to find a way to move them with motors and/or muscles. What I've been thinking is that you could have thin metal cables snaked along the armature, maybe strategically fastened by guides at the joints, that could pull/pull the bones around from an internal centrally-located actuator arrays. Not only would this kind of mimic the actual human tendons, etc, but would also centralize much of the mass around the center of gravity in the robowaifu.
>>8604 It's good to have ideas and sharing them, but I'm quite sure actual muscles contract themselves. Airmuscles and maybe dielectric elastomers are more similar to them than tendons. I'll try to go with small motors in some bones, and then additional soft muscles. Not saying, your idea won't work, but winding tendons up and down might be slow and inflexible, for example.
>>8606 Anon just posted a video showing more or less my exact ideas, but scaled down to the hand & with the actuators out on the forearm. >>8632 My design notions have, as I mentioned, the actuators tucked away inside the torso. But otherwise this is an excellent example of the basic physics of the system.

Neat stuff Anon. We should probably find a way to integrate the idea of 'Wheeled Robowaifus' and then just combine the Wheelchair Waifus thread and the wheeled waifus in the Visual Waifus all together into it. This should go there as well.
>>8828 Yes, this belongs to "wheelchair waifu" thread, but should be named differently. There's also the problem that visual waifu thread now includes VR, so some thread for virtual ones would be necessary as well. We had this discussion before, there's a grey zone where the waifu body is just a screen rolling around on wheels.
>>8824 WOW. This dude is an engineer-and-a-half! Proper machined gears in her main driveshaft! This is a treasure-trove of robowaifu-building information anon! Thank you! Immediately faved the link to Masiro's dev page. (Was also amazed to see he managed to strip the teeth off the gearbox of one of those 380kg.cm servo motors - all those electronics, metal gears and aluminum extrusions must add up to quite some weight! Either that or Masiro chan is secretly stock-car racing!)
>>8876 Neat. #3 reminds me of our Sophie robowaifu that Anon is designing and building!
>>8879 Yes, she's quite similar, but with smaller servos, therefore probably weaker. Also smaller hands, but no facial expressions and no voice box yet.
>>8881 Yep, seems like it. I'd say Sophie Anon has been pretty clever the way he's put all the pieces together the way he has. I look forward to seeing her with her own camera eyes, and maybe some kind of wheeled base like Masiro-chan's >>8824 .
>>8876 She's like Sophie's sister! The old weighted box and pole! XD While idiots obsess over race and gender-baiting by the increasingly obsolete legacy media and get bogged down in futile flame wars, we along with our bros in Japan are enjoying a robowaifu renaissance!
>>8899 That would be really neat if you 4 could meet together someday and all take a group photo together. Robowaifu-Con when?

>>10114 Yeah, it's pretty awesome Anon. But, hey it's always good to have something for us to strive for Anon, right? Part of our general agenda is to find ways to make robowaifu construction much cheaper. To devise (relatively) inexpensive kits that any Anon can assemble inside his own garage in a few weeks, right? BTW, please post any more pics you obtain of this anon's project, Anon. As you say, it's an inspiration to us all.

>>10116 The creator says the small, powerful servos she needs to walk are too expensive. I looked up the cost and they're only $2500 each. :^)
>>10119 I wonder if those could be replaced with brushless motors with cycloidal gearboxes, with something like an Odrive you can get servo or stepper motor like accuracy out of them. Materials for the gearboxes would be the biggest problem, the designs I've seen for 3D-printable ones tend to be somewhat large, but could be hidden in the design.
>>10119 >"We'll never get the budget we need! It's an outrageous amount!" Lol, I literally just finished watching the first episode of Robot Notes if you know what I'm saying. That's obviously too expensive. But OTOH, he's probably using the wrong basic internal design. You can't have a bunch of heavy servos and other components as thrown weight out on the levers of the the extremities of arms and legs if you want to keep the costs down. These item have to be moved inboard into the torso of the robowaifu, it's the only practical way. We have Mini-Cheetah servo design from MIT (>>8415) that run about US$350/incl drivers. They have sufficient force to properly run one hip joint each, as long as other weighty components are kept inboard from their pivot attachments.
>>10121 >Robotics;Notes* FTFM
>>10121 >They have sufficient force to properly run one hip joint each I envision something like two of these Stewert Platforms (>>8648) situated transversally in the lower pelvis region, and serving somewhat like a ball-and-socket hip joint would behave in a typical human or other megafauna. Not an actual ball-and-socket, but it would behave somewhat like it. One Mini-Cheetah each would be affixed onto the outward-facing plate of each Stewart Platform, and provide the fore-aft motion of the upper leg. The knee & and ankles would be actuated by thin steel Bowden cables running along the leg itself. Micro servos can still be located distally for the basic foot/toe actuation, since they a) don't need to deliver much force to perform their own lever-actions, and b) they don't weigh much themselves. (Oops. Actually, I'll stop here, I just realized this should actually be a post in the Skeletons & Armatures thread instead).

>>10121 >"We'll never get the budget we need! It's an outrageous amount!" Someone building a robowaifu has managed to raise $40,000 for original voice synthesizer software. There's a lot of money to be made pioneering stuff. Just imagine how much money people will throw at someone building robowaifus to sell with a working original voice and personality. https://camp-fire.jp/projects/view/294279
>>10130 Yes, the pent-up demand by men everywhere is going to be a veritable tsunami of shut up and take my money.jpg (>>9300). There are literally hundreds of billions of dollars to be made in the nascent robowaifu industries once they become functional, reliable, inexpensive, and appealing enough. Highly talented and skilled Robowaifu Technicians the world over won't be able to hold all the things of people banging on their doors demanding attention regarding their wares (for good and bad heh). For those of us who choose to capitalize on all our efforts in this way, I'd suggest the typical exit strategy of say, John McAfee. Namely, a) first build it then give it away, b) start charging a nominal fee for the millions of user to upgrade their copies, c) ???, d) Profit. For those of you who are going to become billionaires from your robowaifu pioneering, I have but one simple request: Don't become some leftist commie, Big Tech/Gov evil asshole, with all you've been given. That's it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chf6eirs1ps Something I'd like to get my hands on is the wowwee femisapien robot. Personally, I think the robot is pretty impressive for being a lat 2000's kids toy and apparently, Mark Tilden designed the entire Robosapien line with the intention of them being moddable. I'd love to try and see if I could reverse engineer one, but the only photos of it's innards I could find are either low quality or don't show the entire inside. I do have an original robosapien I could work off of if the femisapien doesn't pan out
>>10249 I really like the shaft-driven+u-joint actuator system for the arm that shows up well in that picture Anon. If you have any more pictures of that robot's internals please post them here. TIA.

>>10250 >>10251 This is the only other photo I have, it's cool to see other people interested in it's insides
>>10252 That's helpful thanks. I wonder why they discontinued her?
>>10253 Toy lines always fall out of style, it was inevitable
>>10254 I see, makes sense. BTW, apparently here's the page for her on the guy who made the video. http://robotsrule.com/html/femisapien.php Thanks for bringing her up Anon.
>>10249 >Mark Tilden Neat. I didn't even know about him Anon, thanks.
>>10245 Wow, his original robot had a duckface for me, but her companions are much cuter in my opinion. Time to invest in large OLED displays I guess. I've tried plain LCDs since they were cheap but you can't see anything and the backlight is uneven.
>>10245 This looks like it would hurt to look at over long periods of time.

>>14401 100cm or 1m is too small after all. That onahole between her legs is really creepy at that scale. We really must be careful about height
>>14401 I like her. Better than I can do, though also not really what I want. >>14420 She's cute and obviously a robot.
>>3432 >invidio.us link >404s
>>14420 >creepy >height Where I live they banned all sex dolls with faces or hands or feet to even avoid the question of 'is it too cute in the face' so you're wasting your time due to the fact that normal people will be guilty of witch hunting with a very slippery slope to guide them.

Just my own tastes in the matter subjectively. But objectively, a hexapod locomotion base (especially combined with roller 'feet' is a superior stability platform from which to do housework & other work. No question. >>15736 Yep. I immediately came to a similar conclusion. But it's obvious they are going for police force service with the push for that bot, and the price tag shows it. Shame, tbh.

Also a GITHUB page for your coding, then some of the people who are also working of movement and chat functions will be able to help also. This will make a GREAT platform for so many improvements to dolls in general. The reason I would like for you to have a Patreon account is to help in the funds for you to keep going. They are a lot of people with ideals for dolls and robots, but they don't get very far. You have already surpassed most, YOU HAVE A WORKING ROBOT! If you compare yours to the other open source robots out there you are looking fanatic, Inmoov legs are not even a factor at this time. Alot of the improvements in Inmoov have been done by the group (all the Cad drawings were done by one of the builders) and I feel the same will happen with yours. >I know that here people really like what you are doing, but I think you will also find a lot of fans in the robot groups, and you tube. >I would recommend a marketing name for her before you start, so everyone will know where the robots comes from.

Blender, the 3d modeling program James uses is free... Python programming is open source with a HUGE following...

So this month we are going back to making a video demo for a GoFundMe account. >James is already redesigning my exoskeleton with moving plates that will cover the gaps in my joints so my silicone skin will not get caught. >My home printed PLA parts are functional, but not very strong or durable and prone to breaking. They really need to be cast out of hard plastic. >He can do that himself, print the part, make a mold from it, then cast the part from liquid plastic... about $50-$100 per part, and there are more than 150 parts... plus alot of time. >He found there are companies that will cast the parts for you from a digital 3d file... about $200-300 per part, which means maybe $30,000? and a mold is good for 1-20 uses. >For about $2000 per part ($300,000) a durable mold can be made for mass production of 1000 parts or more, which means about $20-30 per part. >Which means, my entire body could be reproduced for about $5000, with another $1k for motors and electronics. (and unknown cost for the skin) >If we could get money for parts, and payroll for a programming assistant, it is a potential reality that sexbot companions could be in your beds within a year.

>>28761 Damn, he has made some impressive progress. Last time I saw this project it was just an unfinished torso and head. If he starts a GoFundMe I'm going to back it 100%. Reminds me 61laboratory >>10114 has made some progress on the head.
>>28765 Yeah, the progress this and next year will be impressive. Not much happens until it's blowing up big time.
>>28761 It is pretty neat, but the thing is with servos of that size it is highly unlikely it will be able to walk... or even lifts an arm beyond 90 degrees. I have some 70kg servos in that package that can't lift an arm (3d printed w/ 3 standard servos) beyond 90 degrees just due to the leverage involved (that's even mitigating the leverage with a rack and pinion setup instead of a direct joint drive).. unless the servos require more than the 20 amps my buck converter can provide, which would be crazy because even my mech doesn't require that much current for 1 motor!
>>28807 True true, but the doll there probably isn't being made with general use in mind. It's probably expected to just be able to shift around in, uh, bed.
>>28807 >with servos of that size it is highly unlikely it will be able to walk I'm more put off by the noise this is going to make, and maybe other factors like not being very backdrivable. Not everyone optimizes for walking or mobility. It's clear to me for quite some time that there won't just be the one right project. >or even lifts an arm beyond 90 degrees. I think it's just good to see some projects making an attempt to build something complete, while others try to go for something more difficult. This project here might evolve later, or someone else makes something better or better fitting for some people. Till then it serves as a motivator and show-case. Btw, this seems to have been meant as a model for doll photography or something like that.
