RoMeLa is working on replacing restaurant workers and chefs working for food delivery companies, without using humanoid robots. I think this will be good for developed countries with worker shortages, and also rather wealthy guys who want to live in more rural areas while having something that can prepare a lot of different meals: >Introducing Project YORI, a flexible and expandable cooking robot system prototype being developed by RoMeLa in collaboration with Woowa Brothers. YORI stands for “Yummy Operations Robot Initiative” but it also means “cooking” in Korean. >Unlike most other cooking robot systems, YORI is designed to be expandable to cook almost any type of dishes. At this point, YORI can cook steak frites, fried chicken, pasta, and brownies to name a few. With its proprioceptive actuators, the robot can perform tasks that other conventional robot arms cannot, such as kneading dough which requires force control, or tenderizing meat by pounding which requires impact mitigation. Instead of trying to mimic how humans cook, we approached the problem by thinking how cooking would be accomplished if a robot cooks. Thus the YORI system does not use the typical cooking methods, tools or utensils which are developed for humans. For example, the YORI system utilizes unique chemical sensors to make sure the food is cooked to perfection and the ingredients are fresh. The system does not have hands either - it uses custom tools for each tasks which are automatically installed at the end of the robot arm via a tool changer mechanism.

They were still somewhat alive on mobile during the early 2000s, I remember fondly enjoying a particularly bad Fullmetal Alchemist beat em' up on the DS, Dual Sympathy it was called. That game was pretty easy tbh, but maybe thats either the fact that game difficulty alreadly declined back than or I was better at it than I remembered.

Open file (5.62 MB 2400x1200 Paradise.png)
Paradise – as a big fan of graphical adventure games I was tracking down this one for quite some time now. Even finding it online isn't easy. Overall, I enjoyed it. It’s very recognizably a Sokal game (he’s like the Kojima of point-and-click games) both artistically and gameplay-wise, for good and for bad. Not so much the baby’s first graphical adventure that Syberia was if we’re talking any particular level of challenge, but it's still a pretty simple game, at least if you’re experienced with the genre. Though there are a few poorly designed puzzles that force you to look them up, however, just like with Syberia you’re mostly playing for the atmosphere. And on that note the atmosphere here is excellent, the game has truly exquisite pre-rendered backgrounds that craft an exotic journey through some hot third-world African shithole in the midst of a civil war, from a harem with scantily clad nigresses to deep jungle filled with Sokal’s trademark fantastical fauna. Good shit. Though it is a shame the backgrounds are mostly completely static, there are a few with animated elements and I don’t expect them all to be like that, after all this is just a AA Frog production, not Sqaresoft, but they could have at least added some animated polygonal objects here and there, stuff like that was done even way back on PS1. However, even though the backgrounds are excellent and there's a surprising amount of nice looking pre-rendered cutscenes, all the in-game aspects are kinda clunky and start to completely fall apart by the end of the game, with characters t-posing across the screen, events not playing out properly, etc. Maybe the game was glitching on my machine but I somehow doubt it. It’s like they literally ran out of time, and they probably did, but it feels cheaper because of this; Syberia this ain’t. Voice acting is passable and ranges from good with the main lead to average with everyone else. With that in mind the music was definitely a saving grace, it’s really good all the way through and elevates the experience despite the shortcomings. The story is actually pretty decent and quite morbid but, like mentioned, the execution sells it short, and all the flavor text dialog – the bread and butter of these kinds of games – is mostly empty fluff, sadly. Nonetheless, like I said I enjoyed it, chiefly for the atmosphere and exotic escapism combined with the general comfyness of the genre, and I miss games with pre-rendered backgrounds dearly.

Lost Horizon – after Paradise I was still in the mood for more graphical adventure games so I decided to play one from my backlog that I was putting off for a long while and man, talk about not judging a book by its cover. I was putting the game off because it looked kind of amateurish and indeed it is made by a tiny German developer, however, it turned out to be exceptionally well made, in fact by a mile better than the aforementioned Paradise which is supposed to be a large production but comes off lazy in comparison. The thing that initially turned me off was the general presentation, it has that particular nonprofessional feel to it – the cover, the font, the title screen, the background artwork which is hand-drawn but has that distinct tumblr look to it; all of that, on surface, strikes you as amateur in nature. But after playing it, the backgrounds absolutely won me over, they are actually quite charming and clearly so much work went into them, plus the art direction is not at all bad. And like I said the game is really well put together for such a humble project – everything works flawlessly, 3D models look nice even on extreme close ups, there are a lot of misc animations that even a lot of bigger devs wouldn't bother with. They also have an interesting seamless way of integrating FMVs into the actual gameplay, not even sure how they did it. Good job all around. Well, except maybe for the music, it’s alright but it’s just the stock epic music they probably bought off some site. But at least the voice acting is alright, especially from the main lead, they clearly went for the Broken Sword vibe with the protagonist having a snarky remark about almost every object on the screen, the writing is nowhere near as good but it did make me chuckle a few times. The story goes through all the classic globe trotting tropes – Nazis, Tibetan artifact, ancient civilization, asian waifu. In fact, it is almost to a tee ripping off Indiana Jones and the Thunder in the Orient but, just like with the visuals, the game tries its hardest with the material at hand, it’s nothing to write home about but I was enjoying the ride. Gameplay wise the puzzles are really nice, varied and require you to think (provided you turned off the hints, including them in a puzzle game at all is insulting but this was made in 2010); with some decent gimmicks like switching between characters and fakeout solutions. The final puzzle where you switch between two time periods was an excellent idea, shame it was rather short as was the ending but it’s almost always like that with these types of games. The game itself is pleasantly long. All and all, I was unexpectedly impressed with the game, it’s a great entry into the genre that rises above its humble origins and I would very much recommend it.
Recently I finished a small Doom wad Deafening Deals.wad, a very well made wad taking place in some sort of mall. I also completed said wad with an updated version of the old Moonman mod that was made by some guy featuring an /pol/ idealizes version of the orange man himself and Kyle the Kike killer rittenhouse. I don't think they are as well made characters as the original three, but I like the changea in speed to Zyklon Ben and I like some of the new effects/enemies
>>5947 Author also added a couple extra enemies such as a zombie chink giant, a nigger SS officer with song of the south esque sound effects, a beaner gunner, and my favorite, a yid that goes around screaming "oy vey your in our neighborhood goy RAPE!" and worms around the map like a faggot. He also fused the lost soul skin with the cyberdemon for a version of it which is a cyber tyrone comics, kinda cool. I guess, he didn't understand the original reference to the negro who was seething about moonman on jewtube back in the day, luckily it is still in the files so hopefully it can also spawn as well. Also one more thing, because of the nature of how Moonman Doom is obtained, by normalfags in particular, and the distinct lack of SS or Wehrmacht classes my guess is the modder updated an older version of the mod sadly, well nothing is perfect I guess. there is a chance he simply replaced them since both were never finished and were simply just Hitler at the time though Currently playing as Dup going through the Touhou Doom wad, its kinda find to hear dup spout loser, all the time whenever he kills a fairy.
>>5948 I also forgot about the most interesting mode added by the modder, absolute genocide mode, this game version makes it to where niggers respawn often, this allows for getting weapons, health, and ammo at a faster rate and in infinite amounts but is needed since hoards of enemies constantly refill the levels, kinda fun in for a bit in a novel way but it can get a bit unfair, going through a regenerating hoard of niggers, spics, and kikes with good old Zyklon Ben's improved super shotgun was a ton of fun though. You'd have to actually be good at video games and Doom in general to beat it which I'm not but I guess that is what save-stating is for retards like me with less gaming skill than the average zoomer. Either way had a lot of fun with this new version of Moonman Doom, glad to know some autist wanted to maintain it/add onto it.

Is it possible that one fucking faggot from California and his company is responsible for this hideous practice of disrespecting the source material? Victor Ireland co-founded Wrecking Designs in 1990, during a time when most English vidya translations were sub-par machine translations mixed with some poor salary man trying his best with what little English knowledge he gained in Japanese high school. They took the western gaming scene by storm with their translations that actually read like proper English. Little did vidya enthusiasts know back then, that this egomaniac faggot didn't just translate the Japanese games he brought over, he actually made them into his own. So imagine this, you want to translate Japanese video games but the translators you hired aren't good enough so what do you do? Just make shit up and insert a bunch of shitty jokes everywhere and call it From former Wrecking Designs translator Tim Trzepacz: >The thing to remember is that Working Designs had really terrible translators until I came along. They were hiring some company out of San Francisco and the translators there didn’t really know English. They could translate the Japanese, but they didn’t really understand what the idiom was they were translating to. And everything was coming out of a spreadsheet so it wasn’t even in context. Japanese is a very context-sensitive language. So to a certain degree [Working Designs co-founder Victor Ireland] had no choice but to make things up as he went, because he had very little to go on. When I came in, I brought in two well-known fan-translators, C. Sue Shambaugh and Richard Kim, who ratcheted up the quality of the translations tremendously. Now things made sense! But by then Victor kinda already had his process down, he liked rewriting it and adding the comedy in. To quote the faggot himself: >Oh this script is really boring, let me put some funny stuff in here. So I would insert funny lines that really had nothing to do with what was going on. And that sort of evolved. I continued doing that, did more of it, and people generally liked it [because] they were seeing writing that they never saw in Japanese-localized or translated games, like ‘Holy crap, this is amazing’. Source Here's one of the most famous examples of localization from Lunar 2 on the Sega CD: >Girlie, if I were in the position to throw away cash on bums, you'd call me Clinton and I'd be president. I can't find the Japanese line online and I don't feel like searching through the Japanese script, but I assure you it's probably not a shitty Clinton joke.

>>5936 >>5937 I believe you're absolutely right about our lost bros, bro. Ofc, the kikes never did want any of us to gain power in first place, it's just they were blindsided by it all (in addition to their own tech-ineptitude). They think they have the upper hand on civilization now, but God will laugh them all to derision in the end! :D
>>5939 We had been turned into their finest slaves and could have served them for a very long time, their blood feud with us will end when they realize without us they won't be able to control the world anymore. Bottom of the line is you can't control the world forever like a slave and the kikes will always be slaves, slaves to resentment and slaves to their rejection of the life and the world. A new generation of anons will arise eventually, as the last of a dying spiritual race it is our job to ensure they don't end up like us.
>>5927 The worst part is that Japs are forced to do this, even though they don't want to, in order to appeal to the gaijin market (as they see it), but then western games are nothing but degeneracy with naked homofags fucking, getting fucked by bears, tranny manginas and other deprived stuff they're into. But pantsu and boobs must go.
>>5941 >as the last of a dying spiritual race it is our job to ensure they don't end up like us. Heh, that's yet to be determined.

He then became a pathetic emulant of National Socialist thought with an intellectually desultory Slavic pseudo-persuasion during the 2010s. He, then, rediscovered Songun socialism upon winning a gender dysphoria diagnosis after losing it to aggressive, invisible and failed media trolls after in 2023 a 2021, mostly pseudo-Scottish English/Xiatyl-S.-Amerind heritage campaign was legally quashed for being an economically parasitic burden on the economy, similar to the one in the mid-2010s, the early-2010s, and the late-2000s. The sex-change of the Robertsonian Feudal-Conservative Bakhsh was so heavily criticized she had to fuck off to the Xiatic pseudo-Orient, for crying out loud; the thricedvth in a decadanal space.

Photorealism killed video games Anonymous 02/16/2023 (Thu) 08:32:25 No.646 [Reply] [Last]
When the opportunity to make games look like movies presented itself, it was all over for the good old gaming. Not only did it make games look ugly and cheap, with the ability to just scan somebody’s mug and then turn it into stuff of nightmares with bad shading and bamp maps and whatnot, it also opened the gates for all the failed wannabe holyjew directors who now started using gaming as an outlet for their self-assertion, which in turn attracted the unwanted attention of the msm and npcs. Even now they will tell you that photorealistic graphics are better.

The dumbest thing about photo realism is that they started parading real life celebs in video games. Like why the fuck do I need a real life actor in a game when you can have a completely unique and new believable character with zero suspension of disbelief needed.

Open file (235.54 KB 1361x711 Orchid Harness.jpg)
Now that I've taken some time and come back to look at my ideas, it's occured to me that I may have been operating under some faulty assumptions and less than adviseable ideas. First and foremost, I've kinda just been assuming that Orchid's power supply would need to be somewhere inside of her frame, but it really doesn't need to be. I mean, she's already going to be on a cable harness, so the only real loss there'd be from moving the power supply out of her would be a thicker cable harness and having to do a bit more math to account for voltage drop. And if making that work with DC motors ends up being too much of a pain in the ass for whatever reason, I can just switch to AC motors instead. I could probably just move those motor controllers out as well, and have those hooked up to a microcontroller that's connected directly to the server. If I take all that out of the equation, then the only heat producing objects will be the motors themselves, and a few electronic components. Practically a rounding error in comparison, especially since none of the motors will be operating full-time. This way, I can consider going back to a design with a higher number of motors. Second, I've been using way too many hinges and cramming too many small components into the joints, when I can just take the idea I was already planning on using for the head, and copy-paste it everywhere (with some modifications), an idea that's literally just sitting on my desk: ball joints. Of course, taking this route fully commits me to making Orchid a motorized marionette but luckily that just so happens to be my fetish and running paracord everywhere, but it's no more complicated than anything else and the loss in precision is acceptable for my purposes. Essentially, Orchid will be held together entirely by cable tension, and I'll have to apply material to lower the friction on her joints (Kiwi mentioned powdered graphite, which I may likely end up using), but at least I won't have to worry about hinges wearing out (I can just reprint any joints that fail instead). I still intend on using pipes for the bones, since it seems like the lightest and most efficient way to go. Also, it makes limb maintenence easier than ever. All I need to do in theory is open up the back panel, unhook the cables, and the limb will fall right off. The plush layer should be able to come off like a sleeve, as well (the head will be more complicated, but I can't think of a good way around that).

>>5896 >these under the hood stuff stopped because of some delusions of cost effectiveness and probably diversity hires It always was because of the Online aspect, tons of details means tons of metrics which means tons of sync/ping variants which means potential for massive lag, which is something that happened very often in IV's online as cars glitched often because of their suspension simulation going out of sync all the time in full servers. Airport was popular for many reasons and one of those is because the game didn't load many things compared to Manhattan hence running better than usual. Cops N Robbers mode was lag galore for example. Obviously these don't mean a thing for single player other than abusing and getting your fps down to 20 but that could be tolerated due to happening in special occasions (exploding 10+ cars in a crowded area) Taking away all those little things meant that Online ran much better and optimized, it was a streamlined experience. >the Houser brothers fucked off from the vidya business because they said it was too sensitive and stuff. They lost the plot since V due to their personal problems in life, writing sucked major ass and their respective supervision seemed to be pretty bad due to several plot holes and seeming lack of knowledge from the previous game which is why people are still debating if V is canonically in the same realm as IV. Benzies which was the gameplay producer had a quarrel with them since mid-development and was fired unceremoniously after the release, sued, won and is currently making some MMO. RDR3 also sucked hard for the same reasons along with a poor gameplay concept, it's a game with great gameplay mechanics and details yet the plot justifications for actions (aka missions and "rules") and map (aka areas of applied mechanics or "levels") do not take advantage of these advancements. It's like being given a sports car but you can only drive it at 60kmph in an empty one-way street. Rockstar had their days counted since the exodus of the old dev teams around 2009 and 2010 along with the major employment of nudevs to fill those voids for the release of Max Payne 3 and V. >>5884 That is true, last time i replayed i spend much more time in early game going around fighting hand to hand with thugs, getting ATM and armored car money along with ammo hoarding from knocking out fat cops. I still think it needed more side activities for that extra immersion like San Andreas had with burglaries, drug transport, hood safehouses and so on. Even the randomized vigilante minigame had potential if it wasn't for the limited timers that reset (unlike old games that accumulate) and the armored thugs that appear sometimes making the only option to stop them being via assault rifle or RPG... and this is in early game. >>5907 It wasn't San Andreas but it was very solid, V on the other hand was a step down in many aspects alongside the actual Reddit-tier plot which even had the cutscenes made in the annoying modern fashion: Shaky camera, random zooms, random humor, lack of development from characters (while otherwise changing their scenarios drastically yet not their personality), too many characters and lack of coherent priorities for a discernible end goal... it is hilarious to think that Franklin, the unchanging blank state nigger meant to be a pseudo-spectator/player's avatar, is the best character of the bunch mainly because it doesn't do anything aside from smoking weed and being forced to pick ending options which punishes you for picking anything but the one the writers intended to despite the story's inertia and motives implying other options.

Robowaifu Propaganda and Recruitment Robowaifu Technician 05/07/2020 (Thu) 05:39:42 No.2705 [Reply] [Last]
Attention drawfags and writefags! Your skills will be needed. The task of building and designing a robowaifu is a herculean quest. As great as this community is, /robowaifu/ simply does not have the manpower to real our goal of DIY robowaifus. Luckily for us there are several communities on the internet that we could find new recruits or allies to help us build our waifus: MGTOW - These guys know all about the legal pitfalls of marriage and the dangers of feminism. There is already a lot of talk about sex robots in MGTOW communities. It shouldn't be a hard sell to get them to come here. Incels - Guys that can't get laid. The opportunity for love and companionship should be enough to bring some of these guys over. We need to be careful when recruiting from some of their communities. We don't want to attract negative attention. Monster girls/furry/mlp fandoms - The only way these guys are going to be able to have their harpy/elf/goblin/anthro/pony/whatever gf is with a robowaifu. They have an interest in seeing us succeed. Again we need to be careful here not to attract the wrong kind of people that will bring us the wrong kind of attention. Male STEM students - Generally these guys aren't going to get laid until after they have established themselves. A robowaifu could really help them. This may be a harder sell because many of them have been brainwashed in university, but they have skills that we could really use. Transhumanists/biohackers - Many of the technologies involved in building a robowaifu could be used in transhumanist or biohacking applications such as building an avatar. They may have some interest in helping us out. We will need to be careful which transhumanist communities we go after as many of them are full of feminism, tumblr tier sexualities and genders, and SJW's. Cyberpunks and technophiles - These guys (and they are usually guys) are all around into technology and may just enjoy working on the kinds of projects we need to do. They are often into programming and AI.

Reposting from other thread. So I know it’s a shot in the dark but have any of you thought about reaching out to clubs/people who are interested in robotics? I’m kinda lonely lately and I’d like some robo buddy with me. Anyone got some experience to share?
>>25497 is that even a thing, i only remember an after school activity at my school, it was supposed to be robotics with those programmable legos but once were in the computer lab, after school, it became a cs1.6 party no one gave a shit about legos
>>25497 >Anyone got some experience to share? I used a Lego Mindstorms kit years ago to show others some basic robotics stuff to other guys in school. A couple of them were interested, most weren't.
>>25497 Unless you live in a big city, I wouldn’t hold much hope for an organized club (assuming you’re post-college-age). I’ve heard that cities tend to have “Maker-Spaces” or whatnot, and some of em have clubs/focus groups, but I don’t have any experience there. That said, my experience in both HS and college was a bit disappointing. Probably only 25% of the people had any real interest in robotics, and of those, less than half had either the talent or the determination to do something serious with them. The rest were, as my mentor would have said, “groupies”— people who only wanted to “network” or pad out their applications/CV, instead of actually making stuff Now, for less pessimistic, more actionable stuff: - Drone hobbyist clubs might be your best bet— there are bound to be a few guys DIY’ing. It’ll give you pretty lopsided lessons on robotics (rel focus), but the fundamental concepts and understanding of physics will transfer over just fine, and it’s great introduction to control systems (I’m assuming you’re somewhat new to the field; my apologies if it’s otherwise) - Mechanics-oriented “clubs” (they tend to be informal, often competition-centric) are also helpful for this sort of thing (if you’re aiming to learn mech or intro elec engineering), like racing or flying. Lots of very knowledgeable people in these groups, but you need to either have $$$$$, connections, or a particularly uncommon skill (or a really high CHR stat, but I know nothing of that). A lot of the guys there are more than happy to talk about their specialties, provided the other person shows interest AND can show they understand what they’re being told (the latter tends to be more important lol) Those are really the only experiences I have to offer— if you find something better, by all means, let us know— a lot of us are probably looking for the same thing. >>25503 Those things were pretty great. Sure, their “programming” was a joke, but that sort of trial-and-error is great for learning spatial reasoning and application-oriented design. Shame they haven’t changed much over the years— the kits I saw coworkers’ children playing with looked almost identical to the sets I used over a decade ago.
>>25503 >>25515 Thanks for the tips guys. Like I said I just want to find some new comrades in this grand quest.

>>25500 >“Well no, but actually yes.” You absolutely can, but it’ll look like you’re passing around pointers when you override the operator[] just due to how C++ works. That said, there won’t be any overhead due to it, cause under the hood, the opcodes were always going to be passing that row pointer around; all your data is still contiguous. Also, it’s worth noting Row-major vs. Column-major— always organize your datasets in a way that doesn’t “fight the cache” when you access them. Implementing it is basically allocating a single array and then adding helper functions to abstract how you slice into it: template<typename T> class SimpleMatrix { public: using dim_t = unsigned; using idx_t = unsigned; SimpleMatrix(); SimpleMatrix(dim_t rowCount, dim_t rowSize); ~SimpleMatrix(); inline T* operator[](const dim_t &x) {//row access

Though Anon's question was primarily about value-semantics (C++), versus reference-semantics (C); in the context of a baseline mathematical matrix. My example type given is the most direct solution for that, code-wise. A std::vector is in effect a general (as in can contain any type, even user-defined ones), flexible (as in can grow & shrink, and be passed cleanly across interfaces), 'intelligent' C-array-like type that: * always knows it's own size, * won't decay into a pointer at the drop of a hat, * is always strongly type-checked (both inside & 'out'), * is quite efficient in general, * and cleans up properly after itself. You can also spend run-time bounds checking (ala Ada, et al) directly if you care to do so, but it's not required of course [1]. In real production systems you'll typically want to optimize the std::vector's memory storage footprint as well, if/when you know the specific requirements [2][3]. There are numerous other benefits with std::vector in addition (particularly in the contexts of thread-safe concurrency/parallelism usage). BTW, any anon who actually works through this lecture and the next two, will thereafter understand how to build a mostly-complete Vector -alike from scratch with no more understanding of memory needed than that of a C-array. This kind of knowledge is really powerful for a beginner, and the std::vector is exactly the right type to thus intently train upon. Very wise of Bjarne Stroustrup to do so IMO.

Fuck man, I miss when cutscenes were a reward for overcoming a challenge and beating a portion of the game. Whether they were state-of-the-art CGI or in-engine, they always had an immense impact on you when you actually deserved them. Despite a lot of games even having simple short stories they became iconic and legendary due to this, each and every moment burned into memory. Now compare to all this modern slop with HUNDREDS of hours of cutscenes literally nobody remembers, where it's all about muh story, story, story with game as an afterthought.

In the '90s devs considered cut-scenes as indeed part of the game, of the whole package. As mentioned it was incredibly hard to even make a cutscene, hence why awfulness like FMV became a thing. It's hard to say if the cut-scenes would of remained in that same category since the chase for 'muh cinematic just like moobies' has completely steamrolled the craft. There will never be such a time again.

Modular Platform, "Assistant": Wheelchair-style robot base to jumpstart projects Lin 08/21/2023 (Mon) 01:14:26 No.24744 [Reply]
Lord knows I'm terrible at these writeups, so I'd recommend glancing at the attached CAD screenshots to get a quick idea of what this project is about-- on that note, most of this post will be copy/pasted stuff from the design docs, mainly stuff that won't change, so apologies in advance. Long story short, I've talked to a bunch of guys, both on the chans and elsewhere, who have some great ideas but aren't sure where/how to get started. My hope is that a (comparatively) simple, modular base that provides power, movement, and basic sensor data will let them get started on their own project without having to re-invent the wheel (and get nerd-sniped in the process.) # Brief The purpose of this platform is to establish a generalized "blueprint" of a (comparatively) cheap, human-scale "modular base platform" that can be built by a capable layman and maintained by a hobo, while supporting and powering any "robo payload" <= 75lbs, 5kW. Emphasis is placed on all parts being readily available or substitutable, and could conceivably be built from salvage at near zero cost (or in the face of malicious sales restriction), excepting digital controllers. Durability has also been prioritized, with over-engineered tolerances and (optional) bilateral redundancy for everything but the drive motors. Sacrifices have been made to accommodate this vision (primarily weight, though to a lesser extent, performance), and Builders with access to specialized tools or a higher budget will likely want to tweak the design (ex. using aluminum T-Slot instead of right-angle stock, welds in place of frame bolts, etc.) The design is purposefully made to resemble (and, if necessary, function as) a wheelchair (see reasoning below.) ## Project Budget Target Cost: $2,500 USD-2023 with new, mid-grade parts, excepting computer/processor. (realistically, I expect this to be closer to $3,500 in the short term, until people more clever than I improve some of the design's weaknesses/sacrifices) ## Prototype Info - Prototype Budget: $10,000 USD-2023 - (I have access to specialized equipment and labor (at a price), including a commercial 3D printer, 5-axis mill, welding, lifts, etc.) - First design revision expected by the new year (2024). Physical construction to begin Spring 2024. Basic electronic control system, motor/BMS interface to be somewhat complete between January and (Spring) 2024.

TL;DR: Selected and modeled final wheel+gear parts (minus derailieur), which revealed that my rough design for wheelbase struts was too wide; halfway through redesigning it now. Settled on a DIY double-sided linear actuator for Bridge Clutch engagement, which sounds scary, but is only ($30 in parts) + motor. Help wanted: I’m using a bike derailier (shifter) to change gears, which is fine going forward, but will self-derail* if I try to drive it in reverse. The obvious solution would be to use an actuator to lock the tensioner, but my intuition is telling me that I can add an idler and angle the thing to put it at a mechanical disadvantage (so that, while the robot can’t shift gears in reverse, it still drives fine). * self-derails because the tensioner is pulled to max while the chain on the now “far” side of the derailieur slacks, then falls off the drive gearing (2nd picrel is a cutaway of the lower drive leg, with the transparent cone-thing being a 51t sprocket cassette [convex hull]) Also, I feel like someone has already solved this… some weirdo has gotta have wanted to pedel backwards on his geared bike at some point, right? (I don’t have enough X-axis room for a second cassette, like that British dude used…) - Selected a specific Primary Wheel for use in the prototype (and first design revisions) - BMX 20in / ISO 406mm, 1.75in rim width, <= 2.25in tire width (OD ~= 20in, measures 19.6in diameter x 2.0in wide for specific wheel+tire chosen) - Opted to use a composite/polymer wheel, since modifying it will be significantly easier than a conventional, aluminum+spoke bike wheel design. - Conversion requires removal of the cartridge bearing in wheels, replacing it with a keyshaft between 1/2in and 1in. - Shimming will likely be required- my plan is to purchase rod stock of the wheel’s ID, then boring out the keyshaft hole with a standard drillbit. - Of course, that’s in the case I can’t simply buy a sleeve/pipe with the appropriate dimensions in the first place, or enlarge them to fit the keyshaft. - Rationale: Bike wheels expect support on both sides of “axle” (just a structural support). For a one-sided support structure to be viable (with the prototype’s forces and shaft >= 5/8in), one needs over 2in of axle (beyond the wheel), supported on both “near” and “far” sides (forming a lever; fulcrum is the first support strut+structural bearing, load-bearing wheel on one side with another supported bearing opposite it. - Will look into acquiring a set of wheels so I can figure out exact procedure and design for wheel conversion. No surprises expected, but then again, are they ever?

Progress Summary: - Mocked-up the “Wheelchair Seat” that transforms into a cargo bed. - Got a physical set of the composite wheels I plan to use, only to discover that the cartridge bearing’s sleeve appears to have been “casted in”, and can’t be punched out without destroying the wheel; currently re-designing the “hub”/keyshaft receptacle around the aluminum bearing sleeve (I was going to have an analogous part anyway, so it’s not a major shift) - After watching several videos of robots being trashed by ne’er-do-wells, I’ve made some minor adjustments to my design to mitigate it. Nothing drastic at this stage, mainly just adding some extra frame around critical areas, reinforcing the load-bearing portions, and lowering the center-of-gravity where possible. - In an emergency, the robot can “drop” (quickly lower, while still retaining) its Sled (battery carriage) to increase its stability and ideally survive being tackled (optimistic, I know) - Made a deal to get some help with the design’s suspension— I might have to fight him a bit to keep my robot from being turned into a racecar, but it’s nice to have an uber-specialized professional’s input. - Until that’s wrapped up, the linkage/suspension between the Drive Platform and the Wheelbase will only be a placeholder, so don’t expect to see anything there till mid-October. Future Considerations: - Looking into compressible epoxies to reinforce the wheel’s hub, since with a full load of “cargo” the robot tips the scales at 450lbs. - (the rated 200lbs of cargo capacity comes from the owner being able to use their robot as an ad-hoc means of transportation) - Haven’t started designing the shell/enclosures yet, but I’m playing around with the idea of fiberglass/aramid/nomex phenolics on a 3D-printed backing. Notes: Going forward, unless there’s an aspect of my design that’s being discussed or that people have questions on, I’ll be shortening these write-ups to just be a TL;DR list, as above.
This is remarkably-good work, Lin. Keep it up! :^)

Picrel: Timelapse from proof-of-concept; thought it could be interesting to illustrate the 80/20 rule in action— the first revision (r01) took the same time to develop as r03 - r05, despite the latter revisions looking nearly identical Progress Summary: Ran into an issue with the dérailleur (not) fitting within the allowable wheelbase, so I’ll have to mount it quite differently than a bike. Worst-case I’ll have to design my own dérailleur, which would be a massive PITA (moreso cause it’s losing an off-the-shelf part + complicating the design than any technical challenge.) Other than that, pretty boring week, starting frame revisions across the entire robot (finally taking bolts/other fasteners into account). Also did mounting hardware for the Bridge brake/clutches well as the clutch caliper (LA head) itself Feels like I’m actually on schedule for my New Year’s design goal— I almost can’t wait to see what unforeseen detail will go horribly wrong Also, I’m traveling for IRL stuff again (no CAD workstation), so next week’s update will likely be short or skipped altogether. >>25384 Thanks for the input— I’d considered something like that earlier on in the design, too. After a bit of research, the rationale for it (in wheelchairs) seemed to be (in order of importance): 1. improve ergonomics 2. widen wheelbase 3. increase contact area between tread and ground As for my own design, (1) doesn’t apply at all (just robot problems, amirite?).

Randbot, ComradePond, Sriker - some findings Unironic Ralphamale 09/11/2023 (Mon) 07:28:03 ID: 477429 No.223556 [Reply]
There's a streamer called Randbot who was part of jcaesar187's Killstream and is a close associate of the TRS grifters. I don't know if people here are aware of him. He's largely ignored by everyone as his 'shows' are 6-8 hours long and he's painfully boring. One of his orbiters is a woman called ComradePond, whom he refers to as his 'secretary'. She essentially propped him up, and for free, if you can believe that. They aren't discussed that much, but I think I've figured out what they truly are and why she does everything. There was also some stuff on Striker's website that I found. So I thought I'd share my findings/thoughts. Striker and Yandex So we know that the NJP meeting place is a barn owned by Charles Bausman, a self-described Russian patriot living in the USA. In 2020, Eric Striker posted articles to a site called, but didn't make the site, rather it was made for him by lackeys of Mr. Bausman. The email records for national-justice aren't made using protonmail or gmail like most people. When you try to check the MX (email) records for the site, i.e. the email used to register the website, you can see that national-justice uses Yandex for its email. See 'MX records'. It's Yandex. Strange for an American anti-semite to be using a Jewish founded Russian email service. But this use of Yandex isn't limited to national-justice. Sometimes you wonder why things are the way they are and you end up stumbling onto the truth in the most unexpected places. Strange Listener Statistics A few years ago, in an FTN episode, Jazzhands spoke about FTN's audience size in detail as a 'whitepill'. He claimed that their total listener count was 20,000 people' or so and listed various countries in order of their respective audience size. My memory isn't perfect but I suspect Warren Balogh was there as well. The problem is the listener count doesn't make sense. If you have 20K as claimed then are you a $200K /month organization at $10/m assuming every FTN listener is also a subscribers. Even if only 50% are subscribers, then that's still $100K/m. Even if it's 2,000 subscribers or 10%, then that's $20K/m. I don't know exactly which episode it was unfortunately. If anyone can find it, then please share it, so we can learn what their listener statistics actually are. Randbot So who is Randbot? Randbot, real name Ryan Johnson, is a ballwasher. https://foxdickfarmsaaf4t2h7gc3dfc5ojhmqruw2nit3uejrpiagrxeuxiyxcyd.onion/threads/ryan-johnson-randbot-2020-jimmy-russell.81215/ Specifically he is a ballwasher for the TRS crew. He loves washing Mike Enoch's balls and when he's done with that, all he thinks of doing is washing Eric Striker's balls. But of course the ultimate goal is to wash Jesse Dunstan's balls, preferably with his saliva. He does lovingly call him Sven or Svenpai after all. Every day the drunk Australian awakens, and much like Mike Enoch bloviating for 3 hours and calling it a podcast, he bloviates for 5-8 hours in a livestream and calls it a 'show'. There is no structure, planning or effort involved. A few tweets serve as conversation starters, his 10 paypigs send their own for a price and the rest is improvised. The guy always pretends to be sick, which is always some infection his son gave him, in order to take the day off. The way he uses his health/kid as an excuse when he wants to just sit and play video games instead of doing his 'show' is childish.

Elfdroid Sophie Thread #3 SophieDev 02/18/2022 (Fri) 11:38:48 No.15236 [Reply] [Last]
New video of Sophie is now up: Finally got her head working in a reproducible manner. I had completely broken about seven of her previous micro-servos. But the burnt-out ones weren't the big problem - I just connect suspect servos my Arduino UNO and if my control servo can run the 'Sweep' sketch but the suspect servo cannot, I know it's dead and in the bin it goes. However, one servo was damaged but still working - except it caused some kind of feedback that made all other micro servos connected to the same circuit go haywire - even brand new ones. Luckily the faulty servo in question was old and had spraypaint on it, so I could tell it apart from the others. But that was very confusing - at first I thought it might be related to the small magnets that hold her faceplate on, but this is not the case. Rogue servos are definitely something to watch out for in future. Anyway, now that I have measurable, standardised voltage going into all of the micro servos, I'd like to upgrade her neck again. She can actually shake her head (but not in the above video as it is addressed straight-to-camera), but she still cannot nod her head as it weighs too much and the neck servo overheats rapidly. Heads are relatively heavy things (especially with long hair). The breakthrough with Sophie has been splitting her up into separate subsystems and separate circuits, then focusing on only ONE subsystem/circuit - in my case her head. For a beginner like me, it was just too confusing and labour intensive to attempt programming her head, speech, neck, arms and hands all simultaneously. When errors occured I was having a real hard time pinning down which motors were affected, how badly they were affected and why. Having to tear down one large, complex system is waaaay harder than troubleshooting something far smaller. So focusing only on her head solved this problem.

>>25462 Yes mate, that's me. I only got as far as testing two robotic arms and an animatronic head. I am no longer working on Sophie for the foreseeable future as I have to concentrate on paid employment and just looking after myself better. But I kinda suspected I wouldn't have the resources or time to build a fully-mobile robowaifu, which is why I open-sourced everything I could for future builders/inventors to use how they want. After all, I myself took and modified, free open-source CAD models from Will Cogley and Ryan Gross in order to craft Sophie. Just glad I could contribute some maybe useful first-gen robowaifu parts. As for links to all of the parts, I had to delete the Google Drive link because of work (they know about my robowaifu and my manager was actually impressed, so I am lucky to work with based individuals).

Cognitivie Architecture : Discussion Kiwi 08/22/2023 (Tue) 05:03:37 No.24783 [Reply] [Last]
Chii Cogito Ergo Chii Chii thinks, therefore Chii is. Cognitive architecture is the study of the building blocks which lead to cognition. The structures from which thought emerges. Let's start with the three main aspects of mind; Sentience: Ability to experience sensations and feelings. Her sensors communicate states to her. She senses your hand holding hers and can react. Feelings, having emotions. Her hand being held bring her happiness. This builds on her capacity for subjective experience, related to qualia. Self-awareness: Capacity to differentiate the self from external actors and objects. When presented with a mirror, echo, or other self referential sensory input is recognized as the self. She sees herself in your eyes reflection and recognizes that is her, that she is being held by you. Sapience: Perception of knowledge. Linking concepts and meanings. Able to discern correlations congruent with having wisdom. She sees you collapse into your chair. She infers your state of exhaustion and brings you something to drink. These building blocks integrate and allow her to be. She doesn't just feel, she has qualia. She doesn't see her reflection, she sees herself reflected, she acknowledges her own existence. She doesn't just find relevant data, she works with concepts and integrates her feelings and personality when forming a response. Cognition, subjective thought reliant on a conscious separation of the self and external reality that integrates knowledge of the latter. A state beyond current AI, a true intellect. This thread is dedicated to all the steps on the long journey towards a waifu that truly thinks and feels.

There is no “Other World” in the original Silent Hill and the fog world is the real world that’s already been over run by monsters and everyone has already been killed while the dark world is Hell merging with reality. All the nurses in Silent Hill have been “impregnated” with demons just like Cybil had. Lisa died because she became fully taken over by the parasitic demon while the parasite in Cybil was killed by the aglaophotis Harry had. Silent Hill 2 takes place in a completely different version of Silent Hill because the series was originally meant to be an anthology before Team Silent was pressured into making a follow up to Silent Hill 1’s story and at that point they just mixed mashed the two different concepts of Silent Hill into the confusing mess it is know for today

It's also useful for previewing datasets saved as zst as they download. I couldn't find anything readily available on the net on how to do it so hopefully this saves someone else some time: # installation: python -m pip install zstandard ijson import zstandard as zstd import ijson # streaming decompression for JSON files compressed with zstd --long=31 with open("laion_filtered.json.zst", "rb") as f: dctx = zstd.ZstdDecompressor(max_window_size=2147483648) # max_window_size required for --long=31 with dctx.stream_reader(f) as reader: for record in ijson.items(reader, "item"): print(record) import io import json # streaming decompression for NDJSON/JSONL files compressed with zstd --long=31 with open("00.jsonl.zst", "rb") as f: dctx = zstd.ZstdDecompressor(max_window_size=2147483648) # max_window_size required for --long=31

I ran across something really interesting. I think. Apparently server centers are selling their used "Nvidia Tesla K40 12GB GDDR5 Graphics Card GPU Accelerator Card w/ Low Bracket". Look up the above in ebay. They're like $32 USD. The power of these things is immense and blows the living hell out of any sort of single board computer. Of course the trick with them is, 1. Programming a huge parallel processor will be difficult. 2. They don't have fans because data centers have a mass of cool air blowing through them. You will need one or a better solution some sort of pumped cooling.(there is apparently some solutions to this but I don't know exactly what that is yet) Some solutions to the programming are they have a library called CUDA. I see this is used in open source video upscale software. They use these for machine learning, engineering and...not sure what else. Maybe they also use them for general computing "if" they can code this mass of parallel processors. Other problems are you will have to have specific motherboards and you will have to get a monster beast power supply somewhere around 800W. Specifications 2880 CUDA GPU cores (GK110b) 4.2 TFLOPS single; 1.4 TFLOPS double-precision 12GB GDDR5 memory Memory bandwidth up to 288 GB/s PCI-E x16 Gen3 interface to system

>>25396 I mentioned the K80 and the M40 before, it requires additional tinkering with the cooling to make it work. If you have barely any money then maybe the K40 is worth trying, otherwise it's better to use the K80 which has internally 2 GPUs each with 12GB. This said, these old GPUs also aren't well supported, so you might need to compile more basic programs like CUDA and some models might not work. The M40 is better in that regard, and it has 24GB. These are also not SBCs but for the use in a home server to which your waifu can connect. OT: They don't make much sense for gaming, since they need to much energy for what they do, might require overclocking and even more cooling, and the GPU prices came down. If I wanted to run the biggest Falcon model at home, then I would consider using the M40 (28 of them, ~1KW / 40-80€ per month energy costs, price for all seven servers: ~3-5K )
Yes it's obvious it''s not a single board computer but it fits here better than elsewhere and fits the basic idea of what SBC here are used for. I bought 2-K20's for under $30 plus shipping here, I may not ever do a single thing with them but...$30 for that kind of power...You never know. Some things they dump on the market surplus and they are super cheap then disappear. Some don't. If you look at the same seller, and others, they have HP 1200watt power supplies for $30 or less. There are break out boards where you can plug a card in to the PS for around $18. Some have cables, some not. People are using these for mining. I have an old computer I do nothing with. It has a slot that I think will take it. Get a PS and this older computer could be used to train. Maybe. The K20 is 60% of the K40. And no I'm not buying a K80 they're $160. This is just a whim. I'm not dogged serious about it but for $30 maybe I can piece something together if it comes up. Some K20 cards have passive cooling. I have no idea if the ones I bought do or not. I did see them online though. But I expect a fan would be good. They are designed for servers with good air flow. >=== -rm URI fingerprinting

>>25437 Okay, but make sure you know how to do take care of the cooling.

The owners of MetArt, and the subversion of 4chan Unironic Ralphamale 09/14/2023 (Thu) 20:13:18 ID: bdfb5f No.223978 [Reply]
Hello /cow/, I go by hellDweller on I'm here as I wanted to share some information. I have written up 36 articles including one on 4chan called 'The Technological Subversion of 4chan' showcasing the nature of its fake threads. I also wrote a 12 part series on owners of porn sites as I wanted them to expose them. I'm here as I wanted the information within the 4chan and porn series more than others to spread as far as possible. Posting on 4chan is out of the question and I don't trust 8kun. I did post on but I only ever got around 20 followers there. I didn't know where else to turn as I don't have any blog/YouTube/Telegram channel with any sizeable audience and I'm not interested in building one up either. I'm not looking for money or clout, I just want the information to be known by as many people as possible. So I thought let me just post it here, as what else do I do? To give you an idea of what I'm talking about let me introduce you to MetArt and it's owner Jonathan Krogman. MetArt produces possibly the most amount of substitute CP on the internet. I say 'substitute' as the girls are legally 18 and older, but their bodies are underdeveloped to such an extent that it's like they never went through puberty. They look like children despite legally being adults, thus satisfying the sick craving for children/prepubescents without technically breaking the law. I'm not going to post examples here but you are welcome to see them yourself. Krogman has made untold millions off of this 'business' of his. Please globally report me/Lords-of-Porn---Part-9---Aristocrats-09-07 The site is hosted by a company called Accretive Technologies also called ICF technologies, which is owned by Ross Perkins and Shawn Boday. These 2 fine gentlemen have over 1700 porn domains registered by their company. They are also registered as directors in one of the shell companies MetArt uses, so they're profiting off of the substitute CP too. They have a payment processor as well, which is used by Vixen media of fame. What these people are doing is wrong and immoral and while I have no power to stop them myself, I hope that by naming them something good can come of it. Please globally report me/Lords-of-Porn---Part-10---Final-Part---The-Kings-Guards-09-07 Now these people also ran another site. One many alogs here will recognize. That's right, the site where the Гунт and Metokur used to stream on, was in fact run by people who also ran porn sites. But that's not all, it turns out they host actual CP as well. All proof is present within the articles. 4chan has been flooded with fake threads created by some sort of system that uses machine generated '/pol/' speak to hide the fact that the threads are fake. But their system results in the phenomenon of the threads all being '1 post by ID' threads' or being made of replies that are mostly 1 post by ID. This happens as they are likely unable to simulate real conversations. I have created a simple HTML and JavaScript code that counts the ID's and the number of posts they've made, then shows the overall number of '1 post by ID's' to help us understand whether or not the thread is fake. Please globally report me/The-Technological-Subversion-of-4chan-09-10 graf from has graciously hosted the code on You can easily go to 4chan, copy a thread ID, type it in and find out whether or not a thread is fake. Now I'm aware /cow/ doesn't like graf, (or at least that's my perception of it) but look I don't know any of the lore, nor do I have time to read up on it or even care right now. He was perfectly polite to me in my interactions with him and I've had a positive experience overall. I'm not going to get into an argument about something I know nothing about nor am I going to throw someone under the bus who has been perfectly polite to me without understanding anything.

It's not possible to make anime real using Makehuman, in fact the options (for example eye size) are somewhat limited. But there's good news, don't worry! The creator of Makehuman went on to create a blender plugin called ManuelBastioniLAB which is much better (and has a much more humorous name). The plugin is easy to install and use (especially if you have a little blender experience). There are three different anime female defaults that are all pretty cute. (Pictured is a slightly modified Anime Female 2.) There are sliders to modify everything from finger length to eye position to boob size. It even has a posable skeleton. Unfortunately the anime models don't have inverse kinematic skeletons which are much easier to pose. Going forward I'm probably going to use MasturBationLABManuelBastioniLAB as the starting point for my designs. --- Saving everything with yt-dlp (>>16357, >>12247) >===

Now that the dust has settled, what do you think of Wii?
13 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>5225 >the gamepad gimmick was retarded I forgot already, what was it?
>>5227 Think of a DS but the top screen is moved to a TV and every player gets their own bottom touchscreen. The marketing when it was new made it seem like it was intended for things like party games where every player had their own private touchscreen/gamepad and then the tv screen would co-ordinate everything. Interesting concept in theory but imagine how cost-prohibitive it would be unless everybody brings their Wii U along with them. Also this was at a time when getting together IRL to play games was basically over and everything was targeted for online. Split-screen gaming was long dead and the Rock Band game fad was already on its last legs. Maybe Nintendo could've made some big play for interactive versions of stuff like Settlers of Catan but it still would've been insane to design a console around that.
>>5329 Wii U is the perfect example of a gimmick for the sake of a gimmick. They bottled the lightning with Wii in that Goldilocks zone but when it came time to make a new console they couldn't think of anything better than to call it Wii U and concoct a rather useless and outdated gimmick just because they had to.

Cancelled Games Thread Anonymous 02/08/2023 (Wed) 17:38:17 No.439 [Reply] [Last]
What cancelled games are you pissed off never came out? So unbelievably pissed off this got canned. It had a story approved by Russel and Carpenter and it would have been hilarious to see Solid Snake compete with the franchise he was cloned from. Curious why this game would get so far only to be shitcanned. Surviving footage implies it was pretty far along (and it looked fun). It was planned by Namco to be a big series with multiple games, then poof, it was gone. I suspect licensing issues. The Thing game was pretty good, and clever. It probably wouldn’t have been some 9/10 experience but I loved 6th gen games based on 80s movies. There is a timeline where this came out along with a Big Trouble In Little China open world beat-em-up game and we don’t live in it. Every few years I remember this existed and then get pissed off we will never play it unless a developer build leaks.
