1923, from English translation of 1920 play "R.U.R." ("Rossum's Universal Robots"), by Karel Capek (1890-1938), from Czech robotnik "slave," from robota "forced labor, compulsory service, drudgery," from robotiti "to work, drudge," from an Old Czech source akin to Old Church Slavonic rabota "servitude," from rabu "slave," from Old Slavic *orbu-, from PIE *orbh- "pass from one status to another" (see orphan). The Slavic word thus is a cousin to German Arbeit "work" (Old High German arabeit). According to Rawson the word was popularized by Karel Capek's play, "but was coined by his brother Josef (the two often collaborated), who used it initially in a short story."

Man, I'd like to believe, but

he dream is to one day have robots that look and feel organic. For this project, Marie will have similar strength to an average human, skin, hair and human features and expressions. Pressure, temperature, stretch sensors and more will garnish the robot from head to toes. She will have stereoscopic vision, a voice, microphones, so it can see, hear and talk. Powered by lithium batteries, she will be able to travel outside. Instrumentation will be plentiful and precise, giving Marie the ability to assess her surroundings.

Those goals just seem too futuristic, as of now at least.

Most of the cost comes in programming and research, his goal should be plenty. According to that he plans to do those things himself and use existing software and technology when possible to do it.

That said I think it is either a hoax or he doesn't realize what exactly it entails. I don't think that all of the necessary software (even without chatting) is advanced enough. Even just walking up stairs is an incredible accomplishment for a robot.

Speech recognition works reasonably well, but actually having one capable of conversation is another story. There are some things capable of it, but I don't think any of them are capable of it.
The big issue would be having it be able to clean and cook. It would have to be able to recognize all of the objects it needs to do those tasks, and be able to use them. It would also have to be able to recognize dust and dirt to know what needs to be clean. I don't think there is anything capable of that. A highly skilled team could probably make something capable of recognizing objects well enough to cook, but one Canadian who doesn't seem like he has any experience in the subject can't do it.

you're assuming the same quality as a consumer product. i don't think it's that hard to program a robot to sweep everywhere once a day whether or not the floor is clean and i wouldn't expect the robot to be lifting your couch to sweep underneath it. it just needs to be able to detect floors.

I can think of a lot of reason why asimo took so long to walk. no spine or hips to balance himself for one. and i don't think petman took that long to walk, they got it produced and doing physical activities in a year and a half, and that includes a lot more then walking

I'm tempted to pledge just for the hell of seeing him fail miserably. maybe even get a couple of folded poster of a failed robot attempt, makes a great story to tell.

>> No.43655374

The actual production of Asimo didn't take that long. It was all of the previous robots that they made trying to figure out how to make a robot that could walk, and what it took to make it happen.

The only videos I have found of petman have it supported by cables and walking on a treadmill. Having it actually move around would be negligibly more difficult (assuming the cables are just a safety measure). But Boston Dynamics is one of the best robotics teams out there, and they are a company, not just researchers. I highly doubt they would just give him the code they used, and even then it would still probably require recalibration and modification to work with his design, it it would at all. Petman's movements don't look natural at all, which would defeat the point of making it a humanoid if all it can do is look bad trying to sweep. It would not have to just be able to tell there is a floor, it would have to detect where objects are and move around them. Without having computer vision capabilities beyond anything I am aware of, It would need a laser range finder on a mount capable of moving around rapidly in order to scan sticking out of the chest.

I didn't proof read that, but it feels like I probably messed something up.

One year later and she can accomplish entirely complicated tasks. Bullshit.

It would be great if a competent group took up a similar project but on this budget at these prices with those promises that's just bonkers.

>> No.43655499

I'm just saying it is possible to accomplish, just not with the kind of quality it needs to be useful, let alone hit the market. Even asimo is nothing but a tech demo. Everyone seems to expect amazing results. If you readjust your expectation in consequence with the fact that this project can be done with 32k, it doesn't seem crazy to think those goals can be accomplished. If we took a car project and the creator claimed to produce a car for 2000$ I wouldn't think it's impossible, i would just assume it wouldn't perform as well as i expect a car should. same with a robot. a 20k robot can't be expected to do anything useful or do anything properly.

>> No.43655598

I already said it was possible to build the robot.
>his goal should be plenty
I don't think he has the skills to make it do the things he is saying AT ALL, not even at a lower quality than what someone might expect.
If that car project was done by a twelve year old who made a rubber band car out of legos, I wouldn't expect the car to be able to even move. Then it wouldn't be a car, just something that vaguely resembles one and serves no purpose.

>> No.43655741

unless you're gonna spend 20k on the full robot, i suppose he can at least fulfill his rewards, the rest of it is just entertainment.

>> No.43656663

messaged him. according to him, there is no 32k budget because 32k is impossible to raise without a couple of people going for a full robot, and even though there 8k pledges, in reality there's 20k coming in for a full bot. 2 bots sold would be 16k in pledges, +24k not in pledges. technically, 32k could easily be 4 robots at 8k + 4x 12k. that would be an 80k budget. makes a tiny bit more sense

>Walking following someone

Why is this a standard feature in people's conception of a servant robot? Even in the Jetsons the robot maid didn't have legs. Probably because it was easier to animate, but also it makes sense and all consumer robotics that currently exist almost all have wheels for locomotion.

Legs don't make sense on a personal robot, it increases the cost substantially and provides little to no benefit. It'd be cheaper to build a small elevator or motorized stair ramp to accommodate the robot than put legs on it.

>> No.43657476

quote from him ''it's not as straight up as telling the robot «go do my laundry» first you need to teach it. show it were the laundry basket is, show it the machines and which buttons to press, and then all you have is a robot that can throw your laundry in the washer and dryer. at this point, even though it can do laundry, you're still left with folding it, so claiming it can do laundry is not a far-fetched idea, as long as you're not under the impression you're getting a lot more then a $20,000 prototype''

Only you virgins could think sex is just about the mechanical act. The only thing that's gonna improve in your life is the quality of masturbation. And that's the one thing you don't fucking want.

Reality check: it's still masturbation. You'll still be a failed person. You'll still be the underlings going through your life sad, unloved, and unfulfilled.

Why? Because change is hard. So you will continue constructing your fictious roles of "alpha males" and "ubermensch nerds", just so you can cope with your own sad existence.
