More on Voomer Development and AI

Here is Jules Hanson a conversational Voomer construct created by David Hanson and Crew and is currently at best guess at the university of west england. Maybe I can get my friend Charlotte to check and see if he is actually there still? Might be cool to get some personal shots of the voomer himself? But he is also another prime example of AI and semi learning firmware as well.

It does seem to me that we are definitely on a technology rise in the last couple of years, in regards to robotics and software and artifical intelligence. My hope is that Jules will be able to respond more quickly and w/o the use of any external assistance as well. Which does seem closer to being a reality nowdays.

Voomers/Boomers AI Cont. Hrp-4c

We’ve seen the akiba, the kobian, and some of the other robotics with AI interface and learning ware. But overall Hrp-4c is the closest to a real genom base gynoid to date. Seen here

she’s already becoming a household name in Japan. This does seem to this viewer that we seem the first truly possible fully operational and functional 33-S Prototype? This seems to really be a possible reality now. For those Voomer/Boomers researchers out there like at Dr. Raven’s Website? This might very well be one the models you have been waiting for to discuss at length,

Only thing really missing are the tear ducts and you can only tell if you look very closely.

1st Music Video for Hrp-chan while Cosplaying as Miku-Hatsune?

NOW, if she could do Bar Mitzvahs and Shriner Conventions, I’d be raking in the dough!

A very short but cool demo nonetheless.

Boomers/Voomers Artificial intelligence?

Holy Shades of Genom Priss! Whats going on here? Seems that 2 yrs ago these guys have been developing a fully articulated and finctioning Voomer? Oo; Wow, the otaku out there on the male pop. (And maybe some of the female as well.) will be saving up pennies, quarters dimes and maybe a grand or two to get thier hands on one these models.

With it being 2010, now we should be seeing some more in robotics and surgical replacements as well. (Watch Vid closely).

Example.

In regards to vision and a cybernetic retinal implant.

To date, the cochlear implant is used regularly by over 100,000 people globaly to directly stimulate the auditory nerves of the deaf or very hard of hearing. these have been roughly around for just under 4 decades now. Only now are the computer otaku that have knowledge about this are starting down the road on how to hack said techology.

You’ll know that the human-machine interface has truly arrived when you see a firewire port where a mole used to be. Holy shades of shadowrun fastjack what will I get 1st as my own implant? Actually, knowing the advancements we do have already, the human/machine interface won’t be for me till they have a neural netlink for full on game or virtual insertion for interaction on a newer level.
