If you could get metal to bend,   you could possibly get the robot body done in a single casting.

I think if you spread the angular change over space  (Its how springs work.) the metal wont permanently deform as much.  But actually maybe it still works even if does deform a bit,  like if you wanted to make out of lead,  which makes very poor springs, but if you be friendly enough to it,  maybe u can make a spring from lead as well.

Then comes the fact that springs arent mouldable easily,  but there is a kind of spring that is mouldable,  and its the leaf spring, and its just a finger of metal cut from a sheet, the problem is its not stretchy by a long shot,   but it will still spread the angular change over the length of the sheet.

So the idea is,  you get leaf springs to work by having angular occluders top and bottom to stop it rotating too much in one position.

If you had 20cm worth, and a deformation position every half a cm,  you could get 40degrees total, from just changing 1 degree every half a cm.   but then u can include back and forth, and youd get 80 degrees counting clockwise and anti clockwise.

Heres a pic ->  (the rod is supposedly 10cm long. and it can be any depth into the page, for more strength on its axi of change.)


And the robot body can be fully fleshed out in 1 casting.  (Given a few other important concepts to do with powering the actuators.)

Then its like the T-1000,  except its bendy metal instead of liquid metal!   :D

how did you make it?   Did u convert a store mannequin into it?

Most people that post here are chat bot software developers, but there's also a few people doing robot bodies

Robot building is fun!

Here is my inexpensive robot prototype, fully programmable to automatically lip sync computer generated speech:

Years ago Dave Morton and I (as seen in the background) were chatting about it over on: https://www.datahopa.co.uk

I finally got some time to move further with the OpenCog Atomspace visualisation project. Front-end is more or less finished. It is consisted of:
  • read - print - loop (RPL without Eval in the middle)
  • remembering history of passed input
  • reporting errors on invalid s-expressions
  • visualizing valid s-expressions
The link to preview it is the same: http://ocog.atspace.cc/atomizer/

What remains is the juicy part - connecting eval and print to back-end OpenCog telnet REPL.

Welcome to the forum.

You're really brave to do interviews,  I never have the guts.    Comp viz and motor generation, together could make a pretty cool toy come to life.     Most people that post here are chat bot software developers,   but theres also a few people doing robot bodies as well.  But pretty much 95% of us all are working on something, the same as you,   It's been a bit quiet lately here, but it might spur up again in the near future.

Depends if anyone gets anything exciting done, I guess maybe.

I believe the joker, with his super sanity condition, laughs due to his loneliness which is caused by the profound understanding of the singularitypill
he sees the NPCs for their true selves and aims to singularitypill them to find logical PCs.

this is also why he doesn't appear to laugh when others laugh with him.

the thing about AI is transforming this mini philosophical puzzle solutions into algorithms. a joker waifubot would be fun

the singularitypill means to create other non NPC souls using AI code

Hi Ai friends - here is my first (of 5) talk with Irene Lyakovetsky of SaugaTalks - there is a lot of my history of building robots (50 years ) to the present day.

On the GPT-J model public interface I tested with this, "Adam told a secret to Betty, then Betty told that to Charlie, then Charlie told that to Donna, then Donna told that to Edward, then Edward told that to Felisha, then  what was that?"  The results were surprising.

I was going to save this for when I had time to run some tests on it, but the 6-billion parameter GPT-J model is also now up with a public interface: https://6b.eleuther.ai/
