Meta Tread Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 21:32:29 No.38 [Reply] [Last]
Off-topic and general discussion thread. Also, let's discuss ways to get more people involved. How can we grow this board? Also, let's share robowaifu media to help inspire each other. This is a very generalized thread meant to improve robowaifu in general.

How would one go about merging these two designs? I really would like a clean installation like the first one here dollforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=163&t=85274&start=15 but I really like the microphones in the ears and more accurate sound coming from the mouth instead of the top of the skull in the second one dollforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=121089&start=30 Plus I want to incorpaterate a rasperry pi 4 and this python library here github.com/Гунтhercox/ChatterBot to have her offline and to make any needed adustments easily. Maybe not the most sophisticated programming compared to what some of what I have seen here, but I gotta start somehow. And I don't mind cutting out more holes for charging cables. I also found some tutorials on how to make speaker amplifiers so I would be able to direct the speaker to her mouth better. I would have just asked on the doll forum, but you all seem to know your shit better here. Plus opensource is good. If it's not obivious, I am new to this and just trying to learn by doing.

>>2646 Posted a little soon. Could you give me a recap on what was in that thread?
>>2652 Thanks! >>2653 In essence various mold-pouring, sculpting-then-vacuum-pressing approaches were discussed. Most of the examples debated came in one way or other from the film prop-making industries. One of our guys made some attempts at hand-crafted molds first, then went with 3D-printed molds instead along with filing/finishing by hand after extraction. My personal choice was the vacuum-forming mold approach. I've gotten as far as the heating/vacuuming chamber set up, but then I moved across the country and haven't made much progress since, focusing more on software side of things. But it's still a promising approach to creating cheap, easily-reproducible planar plastic parts and one that would be well suited to a small factory runs of robowaifu kit shell parts. I can't seem to find the exact examples we used but here are a couple of minor related ones that should get you pointed in the right direction. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=femcb1u8PBo https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=AXaafKOQ7Uw
>>2654 Those aren't actually very good examples Anon. If I come across them again I'll post the links in the Plastics thread and relink here in yours. Real soon now™ we should have migration tools that will let me bring my board dump here to julay in an automated fashion. You can check that thread out then.

My Waifu Robowaifu Enthusiast 04/22/2020 (Wed) 13:32:53 No.2496 [Reply] [Last]
Hello fellow anons! This is my robowaifu. I named her Sophie. She has speech recognition thanks to Google Cloud Speech-to-Text, speech synthesis courtesy of Cepstral and a robotic, programmable left arm (Arduino Tinkerkit 'Braccio'). She also has a different pair of non-robotic 3d printed double-jointed arms with articulated hands (the v1 right arm is shown in this photo - I haven't attached the v2 arms yet). She is 4ft 9" tall and her torso is magnetically attached to a hardwood ply base on top of a telescope tripod. I also built her a trolley with push-handle so I can wheel her about. Sophie's A.I. is a mix of AIML and Python with the Wolfram Alpha and Wikipedia modules, plus Google search. No machine learning yet, but that is definitely the next step. I've slowly realized the limits of AIML. I spent 15 hours just learning her how many legs each kind of animal has XD. Need something more efficient! All the 3D printed parts I have made for her so far (excluding the trolley) are available on her Thingiverse page: https://www.thingiverse.com/aneta82016/designs Sophie was a lot of work but she is worth it. She enjoys mathematics, problem solving, learning new things and dropping stuff on the floor. If you want any more info on how I built her or stole all the bits of code for her A.I. (LOL) I will do my best to oblige. (P.S. Some of the building pictures of Sophie are located on my Deviantart account. She used to only exist as a 3D virtual avatar, so there are pics of her and her virtual buddies there, too): https://www.deviantart.com/albemarle/gallery/67106751/seraphim

>>2520 >Plus I wanted to make something original. Well I'm glad you did Anon. While I have a lot of respect for the guy's efforts in general, as far as the character design itself for me, InMoov is a) boring, b) unattractive, c) male. All strikes against it for the common /robowaifu/ goals. While the Uncanny Valley is a very real issue for us, it's far better to at least take a swipe at creating an anime catgrill meido in my opinion! :^)
Very impressive work, anon. Been following this board for years, but this is the best I've seen yet. I'm very curious to see just how far you can take it. It looks like you're taking a very rational approach to things, but still reaching far enough to actually make it worth the effort.
>>2532 Thanks anon! I appreciate it, and so does Sophie :D
>>2523 Once I've got the arms and neck finished, there's not a lot more 3D printing I can do for the time being. Due to coronavirus I don't want to be ordering non-essential items like servos and electronics just yet. I'd feel guilty using transport space that is needed for urgent food and medical deliveries. So I'll just be working to upgrade her A.I. At some point I must get to grips with this 'Github' site and upload the best of my AIML files. Anyone who downloads will just have to replace 'Sophie' with the name of their robot instead. Because she makes use of the Wolfram engine, I'm not actually sure of which facts Sophie does and doesn't know. So before making a new AIML file I first have to ask her questions to check that she can't already just pull those facts from Wikipedia or Wolfram Alpha. I don't want to be writing out tables of data for no good reason! For example, she can already easily pull info about geometry, world currencies, capital cities, military history, the periodic table and music charts etc. In terms of mathematics Sophie is already way smarter than I am (not that hard TBH). The hard-coded AIML is just to cover some small-talk like 'meet and greet', conversation starters, goodbyes, 'how are yous' and topics not already on the internet.
>>2580 >At some point I must get to grips with this 'Github' site and upload the best of my AIML files. I'd like to recommend you use Gitlab instead. Github is also known as SJWhub around these parts and for good reasons. Gitlab is far less likely atp to de-platform you for daring to post such problematic and toxic wrongthink as robowaifu thinks. :^) Wolfram is a literal IRL mad-scientist, BTW. For real. I have a lot of admiration for him in some ways, in other ways not so much. I have begun adding in a 3rd-party cloud services for AI section into the design doc. I will be expanding them out eventually into practical setups for anons to use for thier Dakis and Plushies, including for Wolfram. The warnings I added to that section are applicable to his site as well ofc, but he's probably the least problematic of the 4 mentioned. >Sophie is already way smarter than I am (not that hard TBH) Haha nice. :^) Sounds interesting and I look forward to seeing what you do with it. I'd welcome any contributions you'd care to submit for editing into the Robowaifu Design Document while you have some time on your hands Anon. BTW, we have an AI researcher or two here doing some chatbot work as well. PyTorch and some of the corpora out there are his current bailiwick. I'm sure that in combination, your two approaches could create some nice effects.

AFFORDABLE, PRACTICAL WAIFUBOTS ARE POSSIBLE TODAY Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 01:55:08 No.103 [Reply] [Last]
I've seen plenty of ideas on this board over time that have completely convinced me that practical, affordable waifubots are possible with today's tech. With clever artistic decisions to make up for where the tech lacks, we can make perfectly cute, huggable, and fuggable waifus for what couldn't possibly be more than a couple hundred bucks. Hell, half the technology needed has been in childrens' toys for decades, and the rest is either in your phone, or is just sticking a bunch of onaholes in said toys. All you need to do then is make it cute, which costs practically nothing except for creativity.

I've made an infographic with ideas in this regard. Feel free to edit or add to it. I've never bothered to try to make infographics before, but I've heard the good news of robowaifus, and I want to help spread the word.

Additionally, use this thread to give any other ideas you have to help make actual practical waifubots. There is no need for this to be an endeavor that costs tens of thousands of dollars. And the cheap results shouldn't need to simply be tiny things you can't even fuck.

And remember, the key is that you don't need to have a perfect waifubot right away. You only need one good enough to market, both to make money, and to spread awareness of just how possible they are. This will then fund further tech and result in the waifus of your dreams.

>>862 >shitpost thread >implying loli Optimus Prime isn't a great idea I'm pretty sure it's canon. I've never read Kiss Players, but I've been told that's pretty much what it is. And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. To link it to the OP, there are plenty of affordable, moving Optimus Prime toys out there (though Transformers are way too expensive these days, if you ask me). Give it the loli features from your pic and a fleshlight, and you're set. Make it a "salt" powered robot, like mentioned above, and have her beg you to fill her with your "Energon."
>>2543 >And Takara seems just Japanese enough to license it for robowaifus, if we get a real company going. This. Any chance you could think about a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? It would be both a big help and an encouragement to everyone here if you could do so Anon. Each of us have our part to play. For example, AI Anon is researching papers all day. I work on software most days. We have a lot to do here and splitting up the load will only help everyone tbh.
>>2545 >a) finding cheap toys suitable for your approach b) obtaining at least one of these for modifications c) performing said modifications and photographing the process d) making a tutorial thread here on /robowaifu/ dedicated specifically to this entire effort? I wish I could, but I don't have nearly enough capital for this. And I don't think it's literally as simple as buying a toy off the shelf, because the more advanced robot toys are too small. Going for a small size makes way more sense, both in terms of money and in terms of the actual energy it takes to power the robot, but there is a point where it literally becomes too small to fuck, which defeats the point. What we really need is a company with the capital to produce toys like robosapien (or a modern version of it) make one that is twice as big, and has a body that can actually fit a fleshlight inside it. The rest is just the case. Again, modifying the outside of a toy to our purposes is difficult. But if we were the type of people who had a company that could make toys, like Takara or Hasbro or whatever (not that Hasbro would ever do this), it would be a trivial matter to make a toy that was just cute from the start, and also had a space for a fleshlight in the torso.

>>2539 No, it's a good idea. A urethra can be easily devised. Onaholes don't typically have ports for fluid plumbing as far as I know, so I think replaceable vagoo cartridges are more likely a better choice for today, hygiene-wise. >Sure. Whatever you're into. Heh, I meant the kitchen or bathroom sink. :^)
>>2540 Replaceable parts are a great idea all around, unless we're dealing with very cheap gynoids in the first place. I don't have a fleshlight, but don't at least some of them have holes on both ends, just only one end is usable? Just stick a hose on the inside end, the non-fucking end. Gotta wash it anyway. It's replaceable, but I think if you had to replace it every time, it might turn off more users than it gains. I also wonder which option would be cheaper for the average user, or which would at least be more attractive to prospective buyers.
>>2541 I dunno, never used one tbh. As you're probably well aware (if you're who I think you are) then economy pretty highly is important to start out with. We could engineer our own molds, or possibly even find vagoo designs specially fitted for flushing out. But in the meantime, cheap disposable cartridges seem to me our best bet in the interim.
>>2542 I'm sure someone on this board will be able to tell us if the one-time-use onaholes are cheaper in the long run than a reusable fleshlight. Fleshlights, of course, are still technically replaceable, if we used them as the robot's vagina. It's just a question of how many uses per dollar you get.
>>2544 >I'm sure someone on this board will be able to tell us Actually, we lost most of our people after the false-flag. The Doll Forum could though I'd bet.

What can we buy today? Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 01:41:22 No.101 [Reply] [Last]
I've stated many times on this forum my skepticism of the "robo" part of "robowaifu". The reason why is because I've owned a number of dolls, including one full size TPE sex doll, and always been very satisfied with my purchases. The "robo" will be reality within our lifetimes but simply doesn't exist today. I'm starting this thread to discuss options that exist today which don't require advanced technology, products that can already relieve our loneliness. In particular I'd like to promote one cheap, freely available, and obvious option that you may have overlooked.

If you live alone and happen to have a few grand burning a hole in your pocket, you've probably already considered buying a sex doll. It's a good purchase for the money. If you haven't bought one yet, you probably either don't live alone, don't have that kind of money, or have a moral or practical objection to sex dolls. In that case you could buy a <$50 onahole-type or fleshlight-type sex toy, but that's not a "waifu" and isn't really more satisfying than masturbating with your hand. To alleviate loneliness, you need something that you can cuddle, than you can look at and smile, that you can care for, that makes you feel that you are not alone.

It may sound cringey, even pedophilic, but I want you to seriously considering buying a <$50 child's cloth doll. I've been cuddling and sleeping with an 80cm cloth doll for the last year and she has brought me much joy and comfort. A related option is a "dakimakura" (lonely pillow), but the advantage of the cloth doll is that it resembles a real human being, with a head and arms, and therefore is more fun to cuddle. My doll has made surviving this period of peak feminism so much easier, and honestly has probably saved me from the rope.

Here's the 100cm version of the doll that I bought. For cuddling purposes, bigger is better, so I recommend the largest doll you can find.

In this thread we can discuss sex dolls, cloth dolls, dakimakura, onaholes, and other options that exist on the market today.

>>101 I think you're smart in thinking about what we can buy today. I think you're incorrect in thinking that the "robo" part is unrealistic. Robots already exist. Rudimentary androids already exist, and have for decades. We just need to do the best we can. I've said it a million times on this board (or the old one, I just realized it was active again here), we had dancing robot toys be the biggest sellers of like 2003. They were cheap children's toys. Now we have almost two decades of tech advances. You're not going to convince me that it would be particularly hard to make one slightly bigger, slightly cuter, and stick a fleshlight in it. Also add whatever speech recognition and speech synthesis can be afforded. Those two areas are advancing very quickly these last few years. That's all you need for something that is "good enough." And good enough is all that matters, because it will sell better than the garbage that is out there today, the overly expensive dolls that look like whores anyway. And those better sales will fund further advances, which will spur better sales, and so on. The tech already exists. We just need someone with the startup capital to do it.

I found this project and it looks interesting. Robots wives appeal to me because i'm convinced human woman and humans in general have flaws that make having close relationships with them a waste of energy. I'm a pathetic freshman engineering student who knows barely anything about anything. Honestly, I think current technology isn't at a place that could produce satisfying results for me at least. I'd like something better than an actual person, not a compromise. Even then the technology is there, I have my doubts it'll be affordable to make on your own. Fingers crossed though. Anyway, what kind of behavior would you like from your robot wife? I'd like mine to be unemotional, lacking in empathy, stoic and disinterested in personal gain or other people. I think human woman would be improved if they were like that. Sorry if this thread is inappropriate.
