Chapter 266: This Life—The Beginning (VII)


TL: Resonance

    尉勋原本只是抱着“掏钱给他玩耍只要把他留在身边”的金主心态答应与尚可合作, 但看过尚可发来的资料后,他才惊奇地发现其中的技术含量和发展前景非常可观。

Wei Xun originally only had the mindset of a financial backer with the thought of “giving him money to play as long as he stays with him” as he collaborated with Shang Ke, but after reading the information sent by Shang Ke, he was surprised to find that the technical content and development prospects were very promising.

    机器人研发目前还处于起步阶段, 多用于某些猎奇的有钱人和高科技实验室。对于普通民众而言,没有多少吸引力。因为不够智能, 不够实用,而且价格昂贵。

Robotics research and development is still in its infancy, mostly used by some curious rich people and high-tech laboratories. For the general public, there is not much appeal. They are not smart enough, not practical enough, and expensive.

    但尚可对于机器人的构想, 完全是为日常生活服务的,按照功能主要分为宠物机器人、烹饪机器人、装潢机器人、知识百度机器人、清洁机器人、医疗护理机器人等等, 还有专业定制的导盲机器人、咖啡机器人、迎宾机器人以及综合性智能机器人。如果能够完美实现的话,即使只实现其中几种功能,也足以成为风靡全球的专利产品。

But Shang Ke’s vision of robots is entirely for everyday life, and is divided by function into pet robots, cooking robots, decorating robots, knowledge encyclopedia robots, cleaning robots, medical care robots, and so on, as well as professional customized guide robots, coffee machine robots, welcoming robots, and comprehensive smart robots. If they can be created perfectly, even if only a few of those mentioned functions could be achieved, they would still be a patented product that would conquer the world.

    只是这些专利还没有通过申请,尉勋无法确定尚可掌握的技术是否真的如他资料中所描述的那么强大,若是能够提供一件成品的话……

It’s just that these patents have not yet passed the application, and Wei Xun cannot be sure whether the technological skills mastered by Shang Ke is really as powerful as described in the data. If he can provide a finished product… 

    尚可刚回国就接到戚辰母亲的电话, 抱怨某个不孝子很久不和他们联系,只知道胡混。

When Shang Ke returned home, he received a call from Qi Chen’s mother, complaining that some ungrateful son had not contacted them for a long time and only knew how to fool around.

    “可可啊,你一定要帮我狠狠管教一下那个小子, 真是越来越不像话了!”

“Keke, you must help me to discipline that kid, he’s getting worse and worse!”

    “呵呵, 没问题。”

“Haha, no problem.”

    结束通话后,尚可翻出戚辰的号码,刚要拨过去,门铃突然响起,站在门外的正是那个“不孝子”。

After ending the call, Shang Ke fished out Qi Chen’s number and was just about to dial it when the doorbell suddenly rang, and the one standing outside was the “ungrateful son”.

    “可可。”戚辰一把抱住尚可,痛苦哀嚎,“我失恋了!”

“Keke.” Qi Chen hugged Shang Ke and wailed in pain, “I got dumped!”

    尚可内心毫无波动,如同拎麻袋一般将他拎进来,然后踢上门。

Shang Ke wasn’t affected at all. He carried Qi Chen in like carrying a sack, then he kicked the door close.

    “我失恋了,可可。”戚辰可怜兮兮地望着他,一脸求安抚的蠢样。

“I got dumped, Keke.” Qi Chen looked at him pitifully, with a stupid look that begged to be appeased.

    “恭喜。”

“Congratulations.”

    “……为何如此冷酷无情。”

“…Why are you so cold and heartless.”

    戚辰一边肝肠寸断地控诉,一边跟着尚可走进客厅,目光落在他的后背,脸上嬉笑的表情逐渐收敛。

Qi Chen complained heartbrokenly while following Shang Ke into the living room. His line of sight fell on Shang Ke’s back, the playful expression on his face gradually disappearing.

    “想吃什么自己去拿。”尚可在沙发上坐下,数落道,“你是不是又很久没回家了?戚阿姨可是给我下了指示,让我狠狠管教你。”

“Get what you want to eat yourself.” Shang Ke sat down on the sofa and reproached, “Have you not been home again for a long time? Auntie Qi has given me instructions to discipline you fiercely.”

    戚辰笑逐颜开:“不要客气,请务必‘狠狠’管教我。”

Qi Chen smiled, “Don’t be polite, please discipline me ‘fiercely’.”

    尚可瞪了他一眼,懒得理他。

Shang Ke glared at him and was too lazy to pay him any attention.

    戚辰被他一瞪,郁闷的心情反而畅快了许多,坐在他对面的沙发上,这才注意到茶几上铺满了线路和零件,其中一个相对完整的金属物体连接着尚可的笔记本电脑。

Qi Chen was glared at by him, but his depressed mood became more cheerful instead. He sat on the sofa opposite Shang Ke, then noticed the coffee table covered with wiring and parts. One of the relatively intact metal objects was connected to Shang Ke’s laptop.

    戚辰心中好奇,正要询问,却听门口传来开锁声,随即就见尉勋长身而入,两道冷傲的视线直直落在戚辰身上,脸上并没有什么吃惊的表情,显然早就知道他在这里。

Qi Chen’s heart was curious and was about to ask, but he heard the sound of the door unlocking. Then, he saw the tall figure of Wei Xun entering. His two cold and arrogant eyes fell straight on Qi Chen and there was no expression of surprise on his face. He obviously already knew he was here.

    尚可并没有起身相迎,只是看他了一眼,便又将注意力放在电脑上。

Shang Ke didn’t get up to welcome him. He only gave him a glance, then focused on the computer again.

    戚辰见他对尉勋如此冷淡,心里别提有多舒爽,然后用眼神告诫某人:这里不欢迎你,识相的赶紧滚蛋。

Qi Chen saw that he was so cold to Wei Xun, and there was no need to mention how comfortable he felt in his heart. Then, he gave someone a warning look: You are not welcome here, tactfully get out of here.

    尉勋视若无睹,走到尚可身边,正要坐下,戚辰突然一跃而起,闪电般地占据了尚可身边的位置。尉勋及时停下动作,避免了直接坐到戚辰脸上的悲剧,随即飞快抬脚,准确踢中了戚辰小腿肚上的神经,痛得他直不起腰来。

Wei Xun ignored him and walked to Shang Ke’s side. He was about to sit down when Qi Chen suddenly jumped up and occupied the position next to Shang Ke in lightning speed. Wei Xun stopped in time and prevented the tragedy of directly sitting on Qi Chen’s face. Then, he quickly raised his foot and accurately kicked  the nerve on Qi Chen’s calf. It was so painful Qi Chen couldn’t straighten himself.

    “怎么了?”尚可听到响动,转头看向戚辰。

“What’s wrong?” Shang Ke heard a loud noise and turned his head to look at Qi Chen.

    戚辰一手抱着腿,一手指着尉勋,控诉道:“他踢我!”

Qi Chen held his leg with one hand and pointed at Wei Xun with the other, complaining, “He kicked me!”

    “我踢了。”尉勋居高临下地盯着他,“你想怎样?”

“I kicked.” Wei Xun stared at him condescendingly, “What do you want?”

    戚辰噌地一下站起来,瘸着一条腿气势汹汹地与他对视。

Qi Chen stood up while limping on one leg and stared at him aggressively.

    正当两人用眼神在空中交战之际,身边突然传来咔嚓一声,随即只听一首轻快的儿童在房间中响起:“我是你的水果派喔,样子真可爱,营养美味好吃解渴模样也很乖……苹果、香蕉、草莓、西瓜,12345,54321,玩了一整天,却不想回家,我的心情七上八下稀哩又哗啦,谁能猜透我的心思我就奖励他……”(《甜蜜水果派》)

Just when the two of them were fighting with their eyes in the air, there was a sudden click beside them. Then, they heard a light-hearted children’s song ringing in the room: “I am your fruit pie-oh, I look so cute, nutritious and delicious, delicious and thirst-quenching, and also look  very obedient… Apple, banana, strawberry, watermelon, 12345, 54321, played all day, but do not want to go home, my mood is ever changing. I will reward anyone who can guess my mind…” (《Sweet Fruit Pie》)

    尉勋:“……”

Wei Xun: “…”

    戚辰:“……”

Qi Chen: “…”

    两人同时转头看向尚可,随即发现儿歌并不是从电脑中传出来的,而是茶几上那个奇怪的金属物体。它摇头晃脑,旋转弯曲,两只灯泡般的眼睛一闪一闪,看起来十分诡异。

Both of them turned their heads to look at Shang Ke at the same time, and then realized that the children’s song did not come from the computer, but the strange metal object on the coffee table. It shook its head, rotated and bent, and the two bulb-like eyes flickered, looking very bizarre.

    “这是什么东西?”戚辰惊疑地问道。

“What is this thing?” Qi Chen asked in amazement.

    “我的宠物机器人。”尚可笑着回答。

“My pet robot.” Shang Ke replied with a smile.

    戚辰表情诡异:这个疑似金属垃圾集成体的玩意居然是“宠物”机器人?

Qi Chen’s expression was strange: This thing suspected to be made up by metal trash is actually a “pet” robot?

    尉勋倒是来了兴趣,不久前刚想看看成品,没想到尚可这么快就制作出来了,虽然外观寒碜了一点,但重要的是功能。

Wei Xun on the other hand was interested. Not long ago, he had wanted to see the finished product. He did not expect Shang Ke to create it so quickly. Although the appearance is a little shabby, the important thing was its function.

    “可可,你若是喜欢机器人,我可以给你订购。”戚辰指着茶几上的“金属垃圾”,“你手上这个东西……未免也太丑吧?”

“Keke, if you like robots, I can order it for you.” Qi Chen pointed to the “metal junk” on the coffee table, “This thing in your hand… isn’t it too ugly?”

    尚可没有说话,被当作“金属垃圾”的机器人却开口了:“我很丑但我很温柔。”

Shang Ke did not say anything, but the robot treated as “metal junk” spoke: “I’m ugly but I’m gentle.”

    戚辰:……刚才是不是幻听了?

Qi Chen: … Was he hallucinating just now?

    “正式介绍一下。”尚可笑道,“这是我的宠物机器人‘初号’。初号,这两个是我的朋友,‘戚辰’和‘尉勋’。”

“Let me give you guys a formal introduction.” Shang Ke laughed, “This is my pet robot ‘Chu Hao[1]’. Chu Hao, these two are my friends, ‘Qi Chen’ and ‘Wei Xun’.”

    “你们好,朋友戚辰和尉勋,我叫‘初号’。”初号向他们伸出了一只残缺不全的机械手臂。

“Hello, friends Qi Chen and Wei Xun, my name is ‘Chu Hao’.” Chu Hao extended its incomplete mechanical arm to them.

    戚辰和尉勋两人都没有动。

Both Qi Chen and Wei Xun did not move.

    5秒后,初号收回手臂,然后对尚可说:“他们一点礼貌都没有,我对他们的好感度下降了50点。”

After 5 seconds, Chu Hao retracted its arm, and then said to Shang Ke, “They don’t have any manners at all, my favourability towards them has dropped by 50 points.”

    尚可问道:“你对他们的初始好感度有多少点?”

Shang Ke asked, “How many points was their initial favourability?”

    “尉勋58点,戚辰55点。”

“58 points for Wei Xun and 55 points for Qi Chen.”

    尚可:一个照面就差不多把好感度都掉光了吗……

Shang Ke: Just one meeting almost dropped all the favourability… 

    戚辰不满地问:“为什么我比他少3点!”

Qi Chen asked in dissatisfaction: “Why am I 3 points lesser than him!”

    初号的眼睛闪动了几下,回道:“尉勋比你高2.5公分,重8.2镑,完全符合国际标准。”

Chu Hao’s eyes flickered a few times and it replied, “Wei Xun is 2.5 centimeters taller than you and was 8.2 pounds heavier than you, which is perfectly in line with international standards.”

    戚辰怒:这年头机器人也喜欢以貌取人?!

Qi Chen was angry: These days, robots also like to judge people by their appearance?!

    尉勋眼中闪过一丝异色,这种机器人居然可以直接扫描人体基本数据?

A strange look flashed in Wei Xun’s eyes, this robot can actually directly scan the basic data of the human body?

    他快速坐到尚可对面,认真问道:“它具体有哪些功能?”

He quickly sat down opposite Shang Ke and seriously asked, “What specific functions does it have?”

    尚可笑了笑,随手点开一款双人模式的网页游戏,然后拍拍初号的脑袋:“我们来玩游戏。”

Shang Ke smiled and casually clicked open a two-player web game, then patted Chu Hao’s head: “Let’s play a game.”

    初号立刻移到尚可身边,自己接好线路,联机上网,选择游戏角色,点击play进入游戏界面,开始和尚可一起冲关。尚可的操作也算无敌了,但初号的操作更加变态,几乎是在怪物刚刷新时就被爆头了,时间点掐得精准无比,尚可全程辅助划水。

Chu Hao immediately moved to Shang Ke’s side, connected itself to the line and went online, selected its game character, clicked play to enter the game interface, and began to play together with Shang Ke. Shang Ke’s gameplay can almost be considered invincible, but Chu Hao’s gameplay was even more cheat-like. It seemed as if the monster’s heads exploded the moment they respawn. The timing is extremely precise, and Shang Ke is just assisting throughout.

    这还是战斗类游戏,若换成智力游戏,分分钟秒杀对手。

And this was a combat type game, if replaced with mind games, it would only take minutes to defeat the opponent.

    尉勋沉默地看了半晌,迟疑地问:“你确定它是宠物机器人,而不是游戏外挂机器人?”

Wei Xun silently looked for a long time and hesitantly asked: “Are you sure it is a pet robot, not a game plug-in robot?”

    “这不叫外挂,这叫金手指。”初号冷不丁回了一句。

“This is not called a plug-in, it’s called a golden finger.” Chu Hao coldly replied.

    尉勋:“……”

Wei Xun: “…”

    尚可笑道:“机器人就是一部可移动的智能电脑,理论上而言,电脑拥有的功能,它们都能拥有。强行限制的话,会影响它们的智能成长。”

Shang Ke laughed: “Robot is a mobile computer. In theory, they can have all the functions a computer has. Forced restrictions would affect the growth of their intelligence.”

    “机器人的智能还能成长?”饶是以尉勋的沉稳,也难掩惊异。

“The robot’s intelligence can still grow?” Even with Wei Xun’s composure, it was hard to hide his astonishment.

    “是的。”尚可解释道,“我对宠物机器人的初始设定是卖萌,玩游戏,辅助学习,对主人的兴趣爱好进行存档分析,根据关键字和句式排列相对智能地与人类对话。在联网状态下,同步更新颜表情、语言库和知识点。在危机时候保护主人。除此之外,还有记事、定时、朗诵、录音、播放音乐等常规功能。其中最有意思的一个设计,也是与现今机器人不同的地方,就是它们的性格会根据主人的兴趣爱好衍生成长。假如主人是一个深居简出、常年与泡面为伍的御宅族,那么不好意思,他的机器人也有可能变成一个三观奇特的资深御宅。”可以想象,日后一定会经常出现一人一机窝在昏暗的房间里组队打游戏的和谐画面……

“Yes.” Shang Ke explained, “My initial settings for pet robots are to be cute, play games, assist in learning, archive and analyze the owner’s interests, and talk to humans relatively intelligently based on keywords and sentence arrangements. In its networked state, it synchronizes and updates facial expressions, vocabulary and knowledge. In times of crisis, it will protect its owner. In addition, there are regular functions such as note-taking, timing, recitation, recording, playing music, etc. One of the most interesting designs, which is also different from today’s robots, is that its personality will grow according to the owner’s interests. If the owner is an otaku who lives in seclusion and spends a lot of time with instant noodles, then sorry, his robot may also become a senior otaku with strange three views in life.” One can imagine that in the future, there will often be a harmonious scene of one person and one machine nestled in a dimly lit room teaming up to play games…

    说到这里,电脑里传来游戏通关的音乐声。初号扬起长短不一的手臂,在原地欢快地转了一圈,随即朝尚可伸出手。

Speaking up until this point, the sound of the game clearing music came from the computer. Chu Hao raised its arms of different lengths and spinned happily in its place. Then, it extended its hand towards Shang Ke.

    尚可笑着握住:“合作愉快,初号。”

 Shang Ke smiled and shook it: “Happy cooperation, Chu Hao.”

    “合作愉快,可可。”

“Happy cooperation, Keke.”

    尉勋无法形容自己此刻的心情,之前虽然惊讶于尚可天马行空的设想,但毕竟没有直观的认识。如今亲眼见证,才算是真正的心服口服,甚至远远超出了他的预想。

Wei Xun could not describe his own mood at this moment. He was previously surprised at Shang Ke’s bold vision, but after all, he did not have an intuitive understanding. Now that he has witnessed it with his own eyes, he is finally truly convinced, and it was even far beyond his expectations.

    戚辰这会也回过味来,震惊地指着机器人:“你你……它它……”

Qi Chen also came back to his senses, and pointed at the robot in shock: “You, you… it, it…”

    尚可补充道:“初号才刚刚通过基础调试,接下来还需要更加精准地数据校对、程序编辑和肢体操控。”

Shang Ke added: “Chu Hao has only just passed the basic debugging, and would need more accurate data proofreading, program editing and limb manipulation.”

    尉勋觉得这已经很强大了!

Wei Xun thinks that this is already very powerful!

    戚辰几乎已经将尚可当男神一般崇拜了!

Qi Chen has already worshipped Shang Ke as a god!

    两人完全忘记了之前的矛盾,全心投入到机器人的讨论中。

The two of them completely forgot about their previous conflicts and devoted themselves to the discussion of the robot.

    尚可向他们一一展示初始的其他功能,看得两人惊叹连连。

Shang Ke showed them other functions of Chu Hao one by one, and they were very amazed.

    一款宠物机器人便如此强大,那么其他类型的机器人呢?

A pet robot is already so powerful, what about other types of robots?

    尉勋忍不住提出这个问题。

Wei Xun couldn’t help but ask this question.

    尚可自信道:“只要资金跟得上,我有绝对的把握实现预案中的所有设想,目前我主攻宠物类和装潢类。装潢机器人可以精确测量房屋尺寸,随机生成上百种基础设计方案和颜色搭配图纸。主人选择自己喜欢的方案,然后上网挑选符合风格的家具图片,将它们导入机器人系统,机器人将自动生成3D效果图。虽然不如人工设计的精细,却也足以让人清楚自己想要怎样的装修风格。不仅如此,装潢机器人还能搜索各种装潢材料的信息,检测材料质量,帮助主人筛选出最优的供应商和装修团队。”

Shang Ke said confidently, “As long as there are enough fundings, I am absolutely sure that I will be able to realize all the ideas in the plan. Currently, I’m focused on pet robots and decoration robots. The decoration robot can accurately measure the size of the house and randomly generate hundreds of basic design schemes and color matching drawings. The owner can choose the design he likes, then go online to select pictures of furniture that match the design style and import them into the robot system. The robot will automatically generate the 3D images. Although not as fine as the manual design, it’s enough to make it clear for people what kind of decoration style they want. Not only that, the decoration robot can also search for information on various decoration materials, test the quality of the materials, and help the owner screen out the best suppliers and decoration teams.”

    尉勋和戚辰目瞪口呆,这款机器人简直是室内装潢师的噩梦啊!除了大型建筑和相对特殊的个性设计,普通房屋装潢,一款装潢机器人就能完美解决。

Wei Xun and Qi Chen were dumbfounded. This type of robot is simply an interior designer’s nightmare! Other than large buildings and buildings with relatively special design, ordinary house decoration can be perfectly resolved by a decoration robot.

    可以预想这款机器人一旦面世,不知道有多少室内设计师将面临失业。

Once this robot appears in the market, it is unknown how many interior designers will face unemployment.

    尉勋出神地望着尚可,突然觉得自己看上的好像是一个可能引发世界潮流的、了不得的可怕人物……

Wei Xun looked at Shang Ke in a daze and suddenly felt like he was looking at a terrifying person who could start a world trend…
