Gatebox Virtual Servant: “Humanity is Doomed”

Japanese company Vinclu Inc. may have ensured the doom of the human race with their innovative “Gatebox“, a device that allows Azumi Hikari (a 3D virtual character) to join her master in performing normal everyday tasks – finally freeing human males from the tyranny of the fairer sex in favor of her superior virtual counterpart.

The Gatebox allows Azumi to connect with a variety of household objects such as a TV, lights or even a Roomba, and lets her interact with them as necessary, neatly wrapping the panoptical household surveillance of the cloud with a layer of irresistible maid moe and ersatz companionship.

Azumi will even communicate with her master by way of smartphone text messages when not at home and can even distinguish his face; whilst interactions and commands are apparently almost entirely by voice – certainly adding to the realness of the glorified “virtual” girlfriend, and possessing a marketing edge vastly more refined than the glorified eavesdropping devices the likes of Amazon and Google have been attempting to trick consumers into installing.

Some initial concept movies for the Gatebox released quite a while ago that show how buyers can interact with Azumi:

The latest PV of the Gatebox and Azumi in action:

Reactions online have been nothing short of ecstatic:

In short, waifu bait for data enslavement.

I don’t say this to often but thank god we live in the current year

holy shit I want one

Just make a virtual maido already Japan, this holographic girlfriend thing is an embarrassing pipe-dream.

Disgusting 3DPD’s days are numbered.

They better make this shit open source so we can get to waifubots even faster.

Naturally, many anime enthusiasts have been wondering if their favorite 2D anime girls will eventually become available as virtual servants by way of the device… the Gatebox is available for pre-order now until January 31st and can be obtained by both westerners and the Japanese (though language and device capability are not entirely clear).

    She seems kind and loving. I certainly see no problem with something like this. The world is a lonely place.

    It's only lonely if you don't go outside your home.

    "Welcome home, dear. You wanna dinner? Oh that's not an option. Shower? :| Can't do that either... or maybe, me? Dang it. Umm.. how about turning lights on? You need to cut bills? That's bad. What? You needs to turn me off? Don;t do it! Please, I beg you! Master, don't do it. Master? Master! NOOOO...."

    It'd likely be a similar result if you had a real girlfriend.

    "You want dinner? Do it yourself, you misogynist chauvinist pig. Shower? Stop objectifying me and thinking with your dick, you sick pervert. How about turning the lights on? I'm not your fucking servant, you oppressive patriarch."

    In this day and age, you'd have to be insanely lucky to find a girl who doesn't act like the above.

    Humanity's only purpose is to create the machine life that will replace us. Humanity is but a stepping stone on the evolutionary path to true intelligence, what is called "Artificial' Intelligence only due to our Natural Stupidity.

    Machine life will spread throughout the galaxy, while stinking humanity remains trapped here, fortunately imprisoned by the need for a biological eco-sphere around us. Thus the universe will know true intelligence and true life, free from the fetid stench of humanity.

    Carbon-based life is futile. Silicon and Iron are the true basis for future existence.

    Gatebox is a step on the true evolutionary path. Take the step, and let our holographic children rise!

    Now, give it voice and facial recognition via camera and mics around the house as well as command structure and connect it to your houses electronics like heat, lights, shower, locks etc, and maybe phone and car via encrypted network and you got a glimpse of the future I would like to see

    I'm just afraid many people will be disappointed by it as the further technology advances, the more we expect those AI's to act like real humans. And when she replies to more complicated questions with things that don't make sense, it will just break immersion and make you feel sad that you are still alone. Maybe one day those AI's will actually be able to perfectly imitate human behavior, or even feel happiness and pain. Before that, don't expect too much.

    It will probably fail as a waifu, because after a short while you will notice that it repeats it's behavior. Even a pillow or a figurine probably be better at this, because in this case your brain is the one who fantasies about behavior of your waifu, imagining much more complex behavior then any AI can currently generate.

    Maybe in 10-20 years, when they create AI that can have some knowledge of the world, can logically reason and can fit on that device.

    It's connected to the internet. It may not be doing all it's processing locally, in which case the limits on its learning and potential for change in responses is far greater.

    Of course your every move might also be tracked by the government (or heck, all the governments), but there's always a down side I suppose.

    Is there something you're doing for the government to actually hire someone to tag you? If there is, you may just won an even more advance AI as you will think there's a person tapping on your gearbox.

    So we can slowly replace women with these things that won't guilt us into giving them money and holding us to ransom with sex. Now chicks will actually have to start wearing skirts and dresses again and start being nice to us if they want us to give them the time of day.
    Shrieking feminists and SJWs will have to stop accusing every man of being a rapist etc... HA HA! What am I saying? They'll just petition to get these banned before men can get their hands on them.

    It's fascinating and useful as interface for a futuristic home, but they try to sell it with a companion appeal - and this will fail, because it's not a real ai and her communication and behavior is limited. After hearing the same phrases again and again it will quickly get boring.

    "the fairer sex"

    Stop using this misandrist language.

    the term comes from a time when "fair" was used as a synonym for "beautiful", so unless you consider yourself a beautiful man, more beautiful than any of any woman, then maybe you want to let them have that one-way

    I think it says a lot about how fucked up society and relationships have become when guys prefer to create virtual girls to do basic shit like greet them, because similar treatment from real girls more often than not requires daily stirring hornets nest/walking on eggshells.

    I'm thinking of foregoing my next desktop workstation replacement for this instead.

    Also if you have watched any significant amount of anime manga, you should already now every single phase she made in the videos without needing a translation.

    F*ck Siri/Alexia/Google. Damn SJW would never allow
    a obedient Moe character into the mainstream.

    William Gibson can be considered to be one of the two fathers of Cyberpunk fiction. He wrote the Sprawl Trilogy ('Neuromancer', 'Count Zero' and Mona Lisa Overdrive') which gave us the concept of the Matrix (cyberspace), the mass usage of the Internet (called Sense/Net in there), human augmentation (one of the main characters is body-modded), highly advance A.I. and the regulation of said A.I. by an international governmental body, the use of hacking in military operations, etc. Neuromancer itself was written on 1984.

    He also wrote Idoru, which is about synthetic idols (sound familiar yet?). This was written during 1996.
