Please Note: I'm going to be continuing with occasionally repopulating our board again with old posts. Feel free to post responses to them regardless, as I will generally be watching and can often respond appropriately to your posts. But be aware these will be 'log dumps' as it were from our original board. Specifically, these bump-bot re-posts will all have rw@bump.bot as the email sig. Cheers. >--- This thread is for off-topic and general discussions. FYI, our bunker is at https://anon.cafe/robowaifu/catalog.html probably should bookmark that now Anon. :^) Also, let's discuss ways to get more people involved. How can we grow this board? As well, let's share general robowaifu ideas, etc., to help inspire each other. This thread is meant to improve /robowaifu/ in general way and be a place to hangout with loosely off-topic talk. >previous /meta thread: >>38

/robowaifu/ Embassy Thread Chobitsu Board owner 05/08/2020 (Fri) 22:48:24 No.2823 [Reply] [Last]
This is the /robowaifu/ embassy thread. It's a place where Anons from all other communities can congregate and talk with us about their groups & interests, and also network with each other and with us. ITT we're all united together under the common banner of building robowaifus as we so desire. Welcome. Since this is the ambassadorial thread of /robowaifu/, we're curious what other communities who know of us are up to. So w/o doxxing yourselves, if this is your first time posting ITT please tell us about your home communities if you wouldn't mind please Anons. What do you like about them, etc? What brought you to /robowaifu/ today? The point here is to create a connection and find common-ground for outreach with each other's communities. Also, if you have any questions or concerns for us please feel free to share them here as well.

Why Robowaifu? Most of the world's modern women have failed their men and their societies, feminism is rampant, and men around the world have been looking for a solution. History shows there are cultural and political solutions to this problem, but we believe that technology is the best way forward at present – specifically the technology of robotics. We are technologists, dreamers, hobbyists and geeks looking forward to a day when any man can build the companionship he desires in his own home. Not content to wait for the future, however, we are bringing that day forward. We are creating an active hobbyist scene of builders, programmers, artists and designers, using the technology of today, not tomorrow. Join us!

Sophie Development Continues Robowaifu Enthusiast 07/12/2020 (Sun) 21:41:21 No.4146 [Reply] [Last]
Her left robot arm broke at the shoulder (I don't think it was really supposed to operate for long hanging in that position). So I have redesigned and upgraded her non-robotic arms. She may not be a robot any more, but her arms are actually a lot more flexible now (even more flexible than a human's) and I am still working on her A.I. and have made a few English Vocaloid songs that she can sing :D

>>4193 Ah, thanks for the clarification. Nice-looking code. BTW, we have code tags here. :^) How's the performance? Think it will run on lower-end boxes like a RaspberryPi? Seems kind of bot-netty. I realize that at this point in time using a cloud-service like Google Voice, et al, may be necessary but in the future we'd like to have an independent open-source solution.
>>4188 That looks like a pretty sturdy base to me. >I added silicon caulk treads to make them more shock-absorbing That's a good idea. Do you think that will need regular refurbishin or no? >>4189 It's a good idea to create those thick washers like that, maybe some similar approach chould help make the casters shock absorbing? >>4190 That's a good engineering approach IMO. Having the ability to easily swap out parts makes things both convenient and modular. Especially during these prototyping periods it also helps with maintenance, design changes, etc. Nice idea Anon. >>4191 That's actually a pretty efficient and useful design you used there. >I do have to be careful when reversing her Hmm. I wonder if you devised a quick releae belt for her it would help or be too much bother? >She wasn't designed for kart racing! Haha, that can come later yea? :^)

>>4192 No it's fine, thank you. Having both the CAD and STL files posted here will be good for possible collaboration in the future with other Anons here.
>>4194 Ah, my apologies, I have never attempted to write code on an image board post before. But yeah Sophie would definitely run on a Pi. Her whole brain so far is only about 5.5mb (excluding Vocaloid v4). Needless to say she's not a very good conversationalist. But I've mainly been focusing on the structural/engineering side of things. >>4196 Yeah, the silicone would definitely wear away quickly if I were to wheel her over a long distance. But if she requires moving anything more than a few hundred meters I break her down and pack her in a suitcase. The support belt is actually a good idea. Her magnets usually hold as long as I'm not careless, but I'll bear that one in mind for the future, thanks! As for posting CAD and STL files for her tripod trolley, I will post what bits and pieces I have, but much of her lower body has been scrounged and adapted from bits and pieces I had laying about XD. Hopefully any other anons who want to build a robowaifu will be able to come up with their own solutions for mounting the upper body onto a base of their choice.
>>4197 >Ah, my apologies, I have never attempted to write code on an image board post before. But yeah Sophie would definitely run on a Pi No worries OP. Just pointing it out if you want monospace for your code. Using codetags and other formatting techniques are described in the FAQ. https://julay.world/.static/pages/posting.html Glad to hear she can run on a small SBC. I think most of use are planning to use some type of small computer like that for our robowaifus because they are inexpensive, lightweight, and low-power. >>16 >Needless to say she's not a very good conversationalist. Since you're using an external PC atm, maybe you'd be interested in dabbling with Kokubunji's TalkToWaifu >>691 Your project is very interesting. I hope Sophie can move on her own some day!

Waifus in society Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 02:02:53 No.106 [Reply] [Last]
Would you walk around with your waifu? Would you hold her in public? Would you shamelessly have her custody with you to conventions? Would you take her on dates? This thread is for discussing how you'd interact with your waifu outside of the home.
76 posts and 31 images omitted.
>>4150 I think most Anons will make out. And honestly, if you learn to fashion your own, then you can tweak her to be just the way you want her.
>>4150 >My problem is more likely how the hell do I make my waifu not like a clone from somebody else waifu Who cares? But if that's what you want you'll have to leave some things to chance. Just wait until brain machine interfaces become a thing. An algorithm will randomly generate a waifu hologram and then use continuous biofeedback from your subconscious to sculpt it into the perfect gf for you. You'll watch it gradually transform in front of your eyes into sheer perfection. Just pray that Freud was wrong about the Oedipus complex.
>>4151 >, if you learn to fashion your own, then you can tweak her to be just the way you want her. You mean the artistically skill? Well mine is 404, I don't think drawing stick figures would count as "attractive waifu", eh. >>4168 >Who cares? But if that's what you want you'll have to leave some things to chance. Well, I don't know man, it's slightly hard to have stronger bond with muh waifu when I see her out in the open with different personality than I imagined it her to be, let alone some lefty tranny homos trying to larp as her. >Just pray that Freud was wrong about the Oedipus complex. The Oedipus complex? >An algorithm will randomly generate a waifu hologram and then use continuous biofeedback from your subconscious to sculpt it into the perfect gf for you. The thing is, the way she look like looks very good to me already and I have absolutely no idea how to "improve" it more to my likening apart from personality, traits and clothing styles. Heh.
>>4150 I think it depends how much redesign work you're willing to do. For instance, I plan to give my robowaifu several different facial expressions, but this will involve 3D printing a modified head with little cupboard magnets on the inside that allow me to replace her face. But you could just reprint a whole different head for the same body.
>>4176 Have you ever studied the facial kits that stop-motion animation studios create for their characters? It seems pretty similar to your concept. I think there are six basic emotions so that would be a good start probably.

>>4163 I'm assuming the ones in your pic are some derivative of Harmony, and there actually are robowaifus.
>>4163 Assuming the momentum stays after Covid, but momentum is going to build regardless. I know the article says it's not just lonely men any more who buy these things but I'm sure the steady rise in that demographic will only help.
>>4165 They are from DS Doll Robotics https://dsdollrobotics.com/ https://twitter.com/roboticsds?lang=en It looks like China basically already has robowaifus if you are rich enough to afford on, which would make sense considering the gender imbalance due to female infanticide over there...

>order companionbot from obscure japanese website
>you're not a pedo, but size is a major factor in the practicality of these designs, so the loli-robot is by far the cheapest and most reliable option
>you open the box and find your companion, purposely designed to look like a cartoon robot, rather than a real person
>still, the robot's purpose is obvious when you realize it is nude and has genitals
>since it is a lolibot, you, a 32 year old wizard NEET, can't exactly go to the store and buy clothes that fit it. So you'd better do an extra good job at hiding it from any guests that come over.
>lol you never have any guests. Guess some problems solve themselves.
>before turning the robot on, you have to setup the software options on your computer. You adjust a series of sliders regarding personality traits, before selecting the English option, and choosing your preferred voice from a list.
>then you agonize for hours over picking a name
>other, more expensive models, are wi-fi compatible, but you purposely chose the cheapest option with no wireless connectivity, not just because you're cheap, because you don't want people spying on your waifu
>you save the settings to a flash drive which is inserted in the robot's navel, after removing a waterproof cover, of course. But this is when you realize you don't actually know how to turn the robot on
>after rifling through the manual you find the on/off procedure, which involves bending the fingers into a certain configuration before pressing in the port on the robot's navel with one hand and pinching the buttons that are the robot's g-spot and clitoris with the other.
>the robot immediately comes to life, opening its eyes and looking directly at you, in a rather compromising position
>Your sudden reaction of shock abides when you remind yourself that it's simply a robot.
>But the awkwardness comes back when the robot speaks, in very broken Engrish
>still, you can understand as it introduces itself with the name you've given it, the voice you chose for it.
>you know that you chose those options, but when the robot asks you for your name, you still answer just as awkwardly as when a real girl would ask you your name at the bank or whatever
>actually, more awkwardly because your fingers are inside it. So you freeze up, as you do even in simpler situations
>but the robot is programmed for your happiness, and detects your stress, smiling at you in an attempt to make you feel better. But only briefly, because you programmed it with just the mildest hint of tsundere
>it tells you to not feel stressed, and assures you that it is not being damaged by your touch
>you remove yourself from the robot's vagina, and notice a brief, subtle shudder. Nice attention to detail from the creators
>You stand up in front of the robot and watch it as it looks around the room, studying its surroundings. It moves in an unnaturally smooth motion, but manages to not be too uncanny due to looking like a robot, rather than a human.
>as the robot's eyes scan the room, you notice that they stop for just a tiny but longer than usual as they look straight ahead. Straight ahead at your boner, which happens to be right at the small robot's face level.
>once again your mind forgets that you are dealing with a machine, and you awkwardly try to create small talk to diffuse the situation, asking the robot if it requires anything else at the moment. It declines, and instead asks if there is anything you desire
>you, the autist you are, refuse to let the robot do anything for you, and instead say that you are going to go and make a sandwich.
>you tell the robot to make itself comfortable, then cringe to yourself when you realize the absurdity of that statement.

For months before I finally decided to step up and 'be the future you imagine', I kept waiting and waiting for someone to make something like a /robowaifu/, since so many convos on 4/g/ 4/pol/ & 4/b/ had robowaifu-oriented Anons talking together in them. It was obvious it needed to happen. But nobody did, and so you wound up with me as leader haha. I guess we both were 'bound to end up here one way or another' heh. Anyway, glad you're with us, and you've already contributed to the progress here Anon. I'm sure you'll help out further in the future as well!

>>3594 My apologies, I know that these are only related to the board in that they convey my reason for being here. You won't see any more poems in that line, though, at least not for a very long time. Nothing new has happened with my life, so I have nothing upon which to base a sequel. It's just been getting even harder than usual for me to write fiction. I have a nearly finished greentext story that's been sitting on my computer for months. I thought that maybe unloading a little reality could help me refocus and get back into the swing of things. I understand if you want to move or delete those two poems, as they don't jive well with the tone of the board. With any luck, I'll be posting something much more appropriate very soon.

HOW TO SOLVE IT Robowaifu Technician 07/08/2020 (Wed) 06:50:51 No.4143 [Reply] [Last]
How do we eat this elephant, /robowaifu/? This is a yuge task obviously, but OTOH, we all know it's inevitable there will be robowaifus. It's simply a matter of time. For us (and for every other Anon) the only question is will we create them ourselves, or will we have to take what we're handed out by the GlobohomoBotnet(TM)(R)(C)? In the interest of us achieving the former I'll present this checklist from George Pólya. Hopefully it can help us begin to break down the problem into bite-sized chunks and make forward progress. >--- First. UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM You have to understand the problem. >What is the unknown? What are the data? What is the condition? Is it possible to satisfy the condition?

Can you write them down? Second.
