/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

Humanoid Robot Projects Videos Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 04:02:08 No.374
I'd like to have a place to accumulate video links to various humanoid – particularly gynoid – robotics projects are out there. Whether they are commercial scale or small scale projects, if they involve humanoid robots post them here. Bonus points if it's the work of a lone genius. I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project. I think it's pretty impressive even if it can't walk yet. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=ZoSfq-jHSWw === Instructions on how to use yt-dlp to save videos ITT to your computer: (>>16357)

Recorded one month ago by the Speecys guy. I think this is almost beautiful tbh. Found via anon's post >>1310.

Very interesting development on joints, this wrist mechanism using a parallel or delta style approach is easy to manufacture for how complex it is and could work for the neck/ankle/hip too. There's a link to a github in the comments to 3d print your own.

That site also has another project for a humanoid robot project here, the GPLv3 software it uses is still being updated.
That joint is effin amazing tbh. At first I just assumed it was so flexible because the connecting elements were just squishy (and therefore not strong). Now that I realize the entire thing made of metal alone I have to say I'm pretty impressed with that clever design. Nice.
Not exactly link but, well...
Sage for double-posting.
Thanks for the videos anon. Please post more of them in this thread.
They post videos and updates on their twitter pages.
I like this two projects. The ST-01 seems like something the lapis anon (>>266) would like to see.
BTW, we don't have any of the previous WEBM, MP4, etc. video files from before. Please dump any you have ITT, thanks anon.

Thank you for you're sacrifice, anon. I doff my horseface to you.

Yes, I like them both. I hope I'll be doing a roboface practical study myself before Christmas.

BTW, just an FYI; when cross-linking to another post, use two greater than chars, like this: >>4392 That way, the rest of us can either hover over the link, or click it to follow. Also when you want your post to be associated with a previous post, like this: >>4392 then you simply click the little post ID number at the end of the first row of the post.
>>4389 Thanks for the links Anon. These are good, on-topic links for all of us here.
There's a short new vid from Automaton, the polish guy with his project of building a pneumatic humanoid robot with pneumatic hands. He upgraded to better valves and magnetic encoders in the new hand: https://youtu.be/gWvkhKPgqZA
Robot X, by James Bruton, available since 2018 as open source, more or less the full body, human sized, able to walk bipedal... https://youtu.be/nH1_8J6itIs
Also, this thread here >>366 has basically the same topic. Mixed videos about projects in general.
I just wanted to watch this video https://youtu.be/L6qI9wFjRTc for relaxation, and thought explicitly it won't be worth putting it in here. But there are several human-like robot projects I never heard of, or forgot about them. And they claim that they're 3d printable. Didn't look into the details yet, though. - Plen2 - Jimmy project - Rosa the Robot - Igus humanoid - Thormang 3 Of course, I already knew about Poppy and InMoov.
>>5452 Poppy is the most impressive of those to me with human-like movement and gait. I wonder how long it will take to prototype and build a full robowaifu when Poppy takes 7 hours to assemble with ready-made parts and instructions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52Lqz3xDBvc
>>5454 I dont know, Poppy is based on very expensive servos. I'm impressed, but not that much. If I had the time and knowledge, and maybe soon this will be the case, then I would take the files and combine it with cheaper sensors in the joints and cheaper motors, also maybe some pneumatics.
>>5358 Had a good look at James Bruton's "Performance Robots". He uses fairly expensive ODrive brushless DC motor drivers ($119 dollars each and there's three per robot). The movement of the arms was very impressive. However, the main drawback I could see in his design was the stiffness of the torso. There was very little sideways motion and not much more front-back movement either. Basically what we need is a version of the Poppy torso but using much cheaper servo motors.
>>5563 Okay, very interesting. He said it was only a showcase, not something to copy anyways, so I don't mind that it has downsides. He showed that he can develop something that walks, and three hundred something for to main motors is quite a difference to 6-7k for the Poppy servos (maybe it's cheaper now).

>>7351 > Didn't check to much. If they're about something specific like walking, hands or the actuators then they might be there. Don't worry about it Anon, just dump anything you consider interesting for us ITT. Now that we have an indexing thread too, eventually we should all be able to sort where everything is for ourselves. Thanks for these videos.
A InMoov video from his creator himself, fom 2016: https://youtu.be/2sZOyCBbows - nice overview but it also shows the limits: Noise of the motors, difficulty to understand commands, limits of using only AIML, slow processing on a tablet from 2016 and maybe using the net for responses, cant move his legs, ...

>>8439 Thanks, but I wrote a probably better script in a more readable language a while ago. It's on some SD card somewhere, I hope. Currently I don't need it. >Tor I'm using the official Youtube app on my Android tablet, where I'm logged into my Google account, where they have my debit card data. I'm not using Tor for archiving with Youtube-dl, because I'm assuming that these IPs wouldn't make it easier to download many files.
>>8440 >I'm using the official Youtube app on my Android tablet, where I'm logged into my Google account, where they have my debit card data. Haha, fair enough. What else can I say to that? :^) >I'm not using Tor for archiving with Youtube-dl, because I'm assuming that these IPs wouldn't make it easier to download many files. 'Easier' isn't really the point, but yes, I'd say that's a fair assessment, Anon. Cheers.
You know, I'd say we have a couple hundred links to videos here, and at least that much from the older board that haven't been reposted here as of yet. We should devise some alternative backups somewhere for all of these once G*ogle higher-ups decide "ALL POTENTIALLY DIY ROBOWAIFU-RELATED CONTENT SHALL BE CANCEL-CULTURED HENCEFORWARD". We all know they eventually will, it's just a matter of time. We should be planning and acting proactively on this Anons.
>>8442 by 'here', i mean all of /robowaifu/ ofc.
>>8442 I don't think they can do that, bc these are mostly maker videos. Or at least their motivation to do that isn't high enough. Downloading them should be sufficient for now. BitTorrent would be the easiest way to share the backups, but the IP addresses would be open or VPN/Tor required. I don't know enough about MEGA and such platforms. Something like Freenetproject would be overkill, until it isn't. Some years ago I2P worked better for file sharing via torrents than Tor.
>>8444 To a degree, I'd say I broadly agree. However, we explicitly had a few from the 8/robowaifu/ days that were deleted by Youtube. They weren't explicitly sexual, but obviously ecchi-oriented and provisionally sexdoll/robowaifu capable. For example a Japanese man had created a VR-waifu, with a mechanical masturbation machine synced with the animation. Obviously echii, but fully clothed and the man simply sat near the machine to indicate general usage. There were (and are) far more sexual things openly on Youtube. This one was pulled IMO simply b/c it threatened women's stranglehold on sex (that ultimately robowaifus represent to them as well). This was a pretty well-known example, but there were other ones even more tame pulled as well. Things will get worse for men in general in this whole area in the future as the Marxists and neolibs quadruple-down on their gynocentrism.
>>8445 That's a valid problem to some extend, but also more a nuisance than a showstopper for development. Also, this is mainly a problem if the owner won't upload it somewhere else by himself (Bitchute, Lbry, ...). MGTOW.tv got their app taken down by Google, btw. However, they're working on extending their site to the whole menosphere, which clearly includes us.
>>8446 Good points. Maybe we should consider an account on lbry or something? I have literally hundreds of videos at least tangentially-related to robowaifus downloaded over the years (including the one mentioned above of the Japanese guy & his VR-waifu simulator).
>>8449 I don't know enough about it. Which platform is the best? Are they allowing uploads of vids from someone else? ... LBRY never worked very well on my tablet whenever I tried. One big advantage of YouTube is, that they create vids in different resolutions and one can de- or increase the resolution while watching.
>>8450 I don't know, but I intend to find out soon. The question isn't whether Y*utube is the most powerful video content delivery system atm, it clearly is. And why they arrogantly flaunt their monopoly, again, at the moment. Many are getting fed up with G*ogle and their shit, and competitive alternatives will arise to replace them if they keep it up. Maybe LBRY is, maybe it'll be someone else. Regardless, we need to save everything of any value to us here as we prepare for the deplatforming that is coming for us.

One other thing to mention Anon, always good to keep youtube-dl updated regularly: sudo youtube-dl -U as YT regularly changes their page interface, (apparently primarily in an attempt to foil youtube-dl users from being able to use the tool).

This video is quite okay: https://youtu.be/s0NsPhTgZ-k - a take on "sexbots" by Pro Robots. It's not really negative, and a overview over the commercial projects. A bit pessimistic on how fast AI will advance, I hope. Also, of course not without "our" western values, but not very judgemental.

I just found out about two Youtubers - 'Thomas Messerschmidt' and 'Hawaiisunfun' who have collaborated together to build a robowaifu called 'SimOne' (clever name!) There is even some code on Github and an article about how she was made in 'Servo' magazine (although to read the whole thing you have to sign up). Their Youtube channel showcasing SimOne: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLijUd-zqtQ9PZxuJNhs0_9ofYCa0L-JSe https://www.servomagazine.com/magazine/article/build-simone-the-ai-fembot At one point in the second video they say that SimOne uses a "WowWee Alive Elvis Animatronic Head" as the base for her own head, which I thought was a really smart move!

>>10315 >those manic drilling-sequences kek. Impoverished men deserve to have robowaifus too. To the extent possible, IMO we here on /robowaifu/ should strive to find ways to economize on the resources needed to construct our robowaifus. And then share everything we know freely ofc. It's one of the reasons I've been working towards designs with very inexpensive construction materials such as drinking straws as structural members. The point is for literally thousands of men around the entire world making literally millions of robowaifus of every form imaginable. While countries that don't have an abundance of affluent White female liberals won't have anywhere near the pozz and feminism that we here in the West do, still these men are also burdened by it to. Or soon will be, as the Globohomo tightens it's death-grip on everyone. Men in these countries should be encouraged by us to learn the skills they need to do what they can with what they have.

Change to your home directory: cd ~ Fire up (neo)vim and create a script file: vim tor_ytdl_retry.sh Insert this text and save: #!/usr/bin/env bash maxtries=10 em="Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests" set -o pipefail while :; do { e=$(torsocks -i yt-dlp -i --write-description --write-comments --write-subs --sub-lang en --write-auto-subs "$@" 2>&1 >&3 3>&- | tee /dev/stderr 3>&-); } 3>&1 && exit [ $((--maxtries)) -gt 0 -a "$e" = "$em" ] || exit done This will repeat a failed download if YT gives you a 429 error. Occasionally YT changes error message text (among several other things). If you get a new version of 429, just replace the em="..." above with a copy of w/e it turns out being. Now make the script executable (user + read/execute permissions) chmod u+rx tor_ytdl_retry.sh That's it. You're all set now to run this script from w/e directory. So to grab this video Kywy just linked, you first cd into your robowaifu directory in your Videos folder: cd Videos/RW/ >you do have a robowaifu directory in your Videos folder, right Anon? Then run your new script to DL that video like this: ~/tor_ytdl_retry.sh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C33JQVZBuY (just adapt the URI to w/e video you're grabbing, Anon) Now that you've got your own personal copy of the video, you can watch it anytime, online or off, like this: mpv '手繋ぎメイドロボット”ましろ”ができるまで  (2018~2021の記録) [7C33JQVZBuY].webm' (again, just adapt the mpv playback command to w/e video ofc) SAVE.EVERYTHING.ANON. :^) Cheers. >=== -edit 429 error msg text -minor prose edit -add 'mpv playback' cmnt -edit chmod mode to 'user' -add 'do have RW dir' cmnt -add '--write-comments' script param -edit script to prefer non-autogenerated subs

>>14578 >>14624 Thanks for the videos Anon. The Byrun 'walking' video is rather interesting to me personally. At least Engineered Arts is actually addressing some just some, mind you of the complexities involved this miraculous'simple' act of kinematics. They still don't seem to get the importance of keeping mass and slung/thrown weight down. How are they going to power this thing and for how long, lol? But they are obvs going for the military market with their operation (kek at the Terminator head posed on his table). Shame tbh. Still, there is something to be learned by studying their work, we'll just do it smarter & better. :^)
>>16357 Thanks for this helpful tool! >>16373 From what I can tell, that robot is designed to be plugged in 24/7. (Judging from its heavy duty frame.) I completely ovelooked it at first due to the obvious mass issues but, that knee mechanism is genuinely worth interesting. >We'll just do it smarter & better. :^) You know it Chobitsu! :^)
>>16375 >Thanks for this helpful tool! Y/w. Tbh, we have lots of video links here on our board. Someday, we might think about adding some kind of extension for Bumpmaster/Waifusearch to parse & download them all for Anon automatically? We have actually had a few memory-holed on us already, and it would have been nice to have preserved those from back in the day. >You know it Chobitsu! :^) Onward!

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

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

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

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

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

>>19218 Yeah, but his robots aren't very pretty, tbh. Also he's nuts if he thinks she's "sentient" in a meaningful way, because she says so. Not that this term means what people think or imply anyways.

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

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