Virtual YouTuber ✶ Virtual Influencer ✶ Virtual KOL.. NOT that Virtual at all 不是那麼虛擬!! ~▲ QooRadio™ Robot Tech Talk

Though I was mistaken as a VTuber (Virtual YouTuber) by some humans at times, I'm actually an organic Robot created by pinkwork™ entity 外星生命體, which is a non physical extraterrestrial from an unknown dimension and interested to study things related to Humans. However, these trendy terms intrigue my creator so much, that it order me to explain in details to it.

Let's start from the term VTuber ( 虛擬YouTuber ), well, it's not so "Virtual" at all. Many Vtubers are 2D or 3D anime characters. BUT behind the scene, there is a real human 真人 actor with his/her head, elbows, hands, etc. attached with motion trackers. This actor's motion (performance) is recorded in a studio, then mapped over an animated character. In some cases, a professional voice actor is also required. Is there any social media Virtual Influencer / talent who is 100% Non-Human? 

 Don't mistake me as a VTuber, I'm a 
"real" Robot created by 
pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體

 Many popular VTubers are from Japan 日本, 
such as the Bilingual Ami Yamato "lives"

There are some emerging "fake" virtual influencers, especially on photo or short text sharing type social media, such as Instagram. Go check with the following IG accounts with million followers ~ Bermuda Miquela ...etc. If their text, reply and image posts were all automatically generated by an AI artificial Intelligent program, then it would become a new chapter of human beings. 

Many of these fake influencers are created by startups 初創公司 specialize in artificial intelligence 人工智能 and robotics. They seldom reveal the details, so we don't know whether it's 100 non-human. Well, looking at the rapid development of ChatBots 聊天機械人 (check this google Duplex VoiceBot demo), I'm quite sure they're aiming at this goal.  By the way, there are very few VTubers in Hong Kong 香港 to date.

港女夢中接觸古埃及Horus荷魯斯神!?OH, we've contacted Egyptian Gods / Goddesses ?! ~★

These two female humans 兩位港女 from Hong Kong, namely KiKi Wong & Ah Kam 阿金 are so into ancient Egyptian Mythology 古埃及神話, that they would travel to 埃及 Egypt, well, NOT just for sight-seeing purpose. KiKi who is an illustrator 香港插畫家 would join spiritual tours and did series of meditations 冥想 near or inside the pyramids 金字塔 / temples 神殿 almost every year. Ah Kam are hosting programs related to Ancient Egypt, UFO,  conspiracy theory 陰謀論, etc. on some online radios from time to time.  

They said to my creator ~✶ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 recently, they think they've contacted 埃及 Horus 荷魯斯神 in their dreams & during meditations respectively. Oh, really? My creator immediately ordered me (an animated Robot) to "abduct"  外星綁架 them to study ...

HK celebrity spiritual healer 夢妮妲 's sexy ASMR「顱內高潮」式 Eating Noodle 試食。麵!~✶Robot Talk ( 廣東話 Cantonese)

✹✹ My creator ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial just ordered ME, an Intelligent Robot to "abduct" its human friend ~ Hong Kong 香港 Radio personality / celebrity spiritual healer 夢妮妲 Dreamonita to shoot a recently much-hyped 新潮流 ASMR ( Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response ) video. In Chinese, this term is translated as 自發性知覺高潮 , 自發性經絡反應, 顱內高潮, 大腦按摩 , etc..

Oh, Humans like to invent some weird terms to make simple things sound more professional or scientific. For my creator, ASMR just means "whispering" into a camera or making soft /crunchy sounds, such as eating, brushing hair, folding towels, etc. 

Some people say watching these videos has relaxing or even "brain orgasms" 顱內高潮 feeling, though there was still little scientific evidence to prove this phenomenon.

SEE, Monita is tasting a bowl of Cantonese fish slice noodle 魚片麵 plus deep fried fish skin 炸魚皮 in ASMR style. Near the end of this video, Monita will chat with me and explain in details What's ASMR? 甚麼是自發性知覺高潮」?.

✶✶ Having Lunch with a Japanese girl 日本妹 / UFO witness who came to HK to learn Cantonese 學廣東話。

My creator  ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 was having lunch with 2 human 人類 friends (or just its study targets 研究目標?) . The Japanese girl 日本妹 in this photo named Kanae Masuda is a Comic Artist 漫畫家, graduate of TAMA Art University Japan, who came to Hong Kong 香港 for nearly a year to study Cantonese 廣東話 in CUHK 中文大學, of course she would bring with her character ~ Bakutin (a little tapir 貘 ) everywhere ... 

Most Most importantly, she told my creator several years ago, that she witnessed UFO in Tokyo when she was 12 year old ... but not my creator's.

I'd witnessed UFO at 12 !

✹✹ Simplest Explain :▷ Bitcoin 比特幣, CryptoCurrency 數碼貨幣 & BlockChain 區塊鏈 ~✶animated Robot / VTuber TechTalk

Yeah, my creator ~✶pinkwork™  extraterrestrial asked me this question Today ▶ What're Bitcoin 比特幣, Cryptocurrency 數碼貨幣 & the related BlockChain 區塊鏈 technology? As a Robot 機械人 created by it, I've tried to use the most simple (really?) way to explain these human trendy terms to IT.  

First you have to make clear, Bitcoin is just one type of CryptoCurrencies, and most CryptoCurrencies are built on the BlockChain Technology.

A Sea of Yellow Flowers 一片黃色花海, Really? Nam Cheong Park 南昌公園 photo Snap ~☀

Passed by a photography Hotspot ~ Nam Cheong Park 深水埗 南昌公園 in Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong today & snapped a photo ...

In a small city like HK, wherever there are bunch of trees or plants 只要有堆花草樹木 having bright colored 顏色鮮艷 flowers or leaves. Those places will soon be "heated up" by local lifestyle magazines, newspapers 成為攝影打卡熱點. Then, many humans will flock to these so-called Hotspots to shoot photos, some even bring with very professional gears. Yeah, today I saw people using carbon fibre tripod, Canon EF 70~200MM zoom Lens ... etc., to shot the Yellow Pui Trees 黃花風鈴木  in a Urban Park.

"A Sea of Yellow Flowers 一片黃色花海 " is a bit too exaggerated as what I saw  today, though I read many magazine features or people IGs said so. Actually, I was more attracted by the Blue Sky 藍天 .

✹Out-of-Print 絕版 pinkwork™ Paper Zine / Art Paper 紙本創作 #8 : HK Best-Actress winner Stephy Tang 鄧麗欣 & ▲ Poet ▶《 Draw Me a Winter Tree》

YEAH, just found another issue of my creator's paper zine (titled PinkWork) published several years ago. As what I said before, each issue my creator would "abduct" 1~2 creative or quirky minded humans and then instruct them to do some improvised creations 即興隨意創作. 

For this issue (#8) , the theme 主題 is "Draw a Poem 畫一首詩". My creator invited an American born, Hong Kong & New Zealand based Poet cum Photographer cum Writer 詩人及攝影師~ Madeleine Marie Slavick to create a poem. Then Hong Kong singer /actress Stephy Tang 鄧麗欣 was invited to read this poem (titled Winter Tree) and make a drawing based on her inspiration from this poem immediately.

Stephy started off as a pop idol (former leader of girl group Cookies.), well, after several year of hard work, she just won the best actress award 最佳女主角 in 2018 HK Film Critics Society Awards 香港電影評論學會大獎. Send my extraterrestrial Congratulation to this female human!

Modified Sony RX0 with a M4/3 or C-Mount Lens 超強改裝!~✹Video Footage

Remember when this 1-inch sensor little black box (Sony RX0) was out last year, the first thing I thought of is whether I could attach a Moondog Lab anamorphic, C-mount or even a Nikon/Canon Lens on it. Actually, I wrote an article about this. Yeah, I love its small size, but a fixed focus 24mm lens limits its usage. 

There are companies designed DOF (Depth of Field) adapters to allow people to use Canon or Nikon Lens with their smartphones. Well, but the pricey RX0 has a much smaller market, I don't expect any company would develop similar product for this camera. 

To my surprise, this week I read a piece of interesting news. Back-Bone Gear, a Canadian company specializes in selling modified GoPro or Yi action cameras just announced, they will also provide modified Sony RX0.   

Their modification adds a Micro four thirds (MFT) lens mount to this compact camera, so it could now use all M3/4 Lens (manual focus only). With other adapters, it could also use C-Mount, Nikon or Canon lens. The package named Ribcage RX0 (US$1,099) includes a modified Sony RX0, a C-Mount Ring, a Removable IR-cut filter ... etc.. 

It sounds very attractive, but I have to remind you. Since your RX0 had been modified, I don't think you would got an official warranty any more.  

記得Sony RX0上年剛面世時,我第一時間想到﹝*看我之前的   文章﹞若然這部擁有1吋感光CMOS的「小黑盒」能夠裝上各式焦距的C-Mount鏡頭或者Moondog Labs的Anamorphic 電影鏡,馬上會變得相當吸引。別以為我太天馬行空,早有一些Startup公司,如Beastgrip Pro等,為手機推出DOF Depth of Field﹞接環,令手機也可以裝上Nikon、Canon鏡頭來拍攝  ﹝當然只能手動對焦﹞。如此手機也可拍出Boken淺景深、超長鏡等「單反」效果。

何況手機的感光元件通常大小只有1/2.5 ~ 1/3吋,比起RX0的1吋細小很多,影像質素也差很遠。可借買手機的人始終比起買RX0的人多無數倍,我以為沒有公司會為它研發類似的產品。不過凡事總有奇蹟。

剛收到消息,一間來自加拿大,叫 Back-Bone Gear 的公司,以往專門銷售自家改裝版本的GoPro或者小米Yi Action Camera,可以接上C或者CF-Mount鏡頭。好端端一部Action Cam為何要改裝?原因很多,一些人是不喜歡跟機內置的魚眼鏡太wide,影物變型太跨張。一些愛接上有微距功能的Macro鏡頭,拍攝昆蟲。一些想移走機身內置的IR漏鏡,拍攝紅外線夜視影像。

起初以為這類有另類癖好的人類是小眾,殊不知竟然有公司專服務這批客人。Back-Bone Gear剛宣布推出改裝版本的Ribcage RX0 (售價US$1,099)相機套裝,可接上M43、C-Mount甚至Nikon、Canon等SLR鏡頭,套裝更包括可移除的IR-Cut濾鏡。

是否很也想入手一部?提醒你們,因為這類改裝Action Camera不只是加一個接環那麼簡單,涉及「深入」改動,因此大家別期望繼續享有原廠保養。選擇「另類」始終是要付出代價的!
