When do you guys think catgirls will be biologically engimeered?
They'll be engineered in 2045, but you will die the day before they go on sale.
First step is designer babies. That means being able to alter the genome of a zygote in order to express specific desired traits. This would, at first, be limited to human bodily attributes, like pigmentation or bone structure. Next would be splicing, coding a human genome to develop non-human body parts. This is the difficult part, because you have to figure out how to encode into human DNA body parts that are not human, without fucking up the rest of the body. This is also the part that will incur the most opposition from moralfags, because there will be a lot of trial and error resulting in horribly deformed babies. Once this process is perfected, you could modify a human embryo do develop any body part you wished, including cat ears and tails. I wouldn't expect it in our lifetime.
Well, we already have the technology to turn food into pills that could save us 3 hours everyday in cooking and washing dishes. But no one wanted it because chewing on something fires our instincts for love of food and in turn increases endophin
Cat girls are completely unnecessary because, technically, it is another form of slavery and you are messing up the genes of a living human just to cater to your fetishes.
Keep that shit only on 2D and instead focus on androids that you can modify at will without any moral guilt
Tails would likely be the easiest part as it's already somewhat built into our biology, but cat ears would require complete reconstruction of the skull and modifying our auditory system for them to be functional. That is, unless people would be willing to put up with the 4 ears scenario and them being mostly for show.
I can't imagine the appeal of real-life catgirls.
If you could point out a gene or attribute of cats that are superior to what humans have, maybe I could move around to it.
Otherwise, 2D girls + cat ears/tail accessories are far superior. All of the benefits with none of the coprophagia.
So, how long will this take to get funded?
>androids that you can modify at will without any moral guilt
>implying something can't be sentient simply because it's brain pathways are metal and not flesh
But I also disagree with the catgirl thing, I think there's nothing wrong at all with bioengineering humans, but it has to be by their will. Also, someday humans are going to have to say goodbye to our current form if we ever wish to get anywhere meaningful. The human mind and it's ability to create new things artificially IS the next step in evolution. We are not breaking evolution, we ARE evolution itself, manifested as a sentient creature over years of development. I do agree the slavery part would be immoral, but I personally am not desperate enough for sex to enslave another person, so I'm fine with not enslaving them. They would have to willingly choose me, otherwise I wouldn't be able to live with myself. Slavery is my greatest fear, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
I'd personally prefer to have an android body myself, so I could live for an eternity with my android waifu, if she accepted me. This could happen right now if people got to it, and we could also abolish the need for people to work full time or even at all with automated machines,but too many people cling uselessly to archaic values which cause humans and other creatures nothing but unwarranted pain. I hope this post didn't sound too edgy, although I'm afraid it is unavoidable as to break away from any sort of norm is edgy in itself, and thus being edgy is a necessity for those that wish to grow.
Tail as an extra erogenous zone, improved hearing, they'd periodically go into heat so you'd be guaranteed sex even if you weren't on good terms, and increased agility and reflexes would be cool too
also the rough tongue thing for enhanced BJs
Keep your living fedora and brain parasite for yourself, I'll take a doggogirls.
>This is also the part that will incur the most opposition from moralfags, because there will be a lot of trial and error resulting in horribly deformed babies
Ah shit. Can we just kill all the moralfags so we don't gave to deal with them? It would be a fitting end for them.
>he can't appreciate catgirls
4chan is dead. See you anons, I'm leaving for good.
all we need to do is just convince moral fags that it's more 'moral' to allow genetic engineering in order to prevent others suffering from genetic conditions that cause others to suffer
A long long time from now, we will get sex android ect way before. The only chance we have of engineered catgirls is completely ruined by the fact that normal fags will 100% stand up against the testing that will lead to a lot of deformed failures.
only way I could see something like this gaining any real progress within our life times would be if some random 3rd world country where people dont really give a fuck was able to suddenly have the money ect to waste on it.
Moralfags have books that allow them to create mental gymnastics in their head so that logic no longer affects them. Yes, I realize this is an extremely fedora thing to say, you don't need to provide images of them to make that point.
Yeah, I just made that observation. Well, we could be lucky enough that someone is able to create the technology necessary before moralfags find out, and by the time we do we'll all be superhuman and we won't need to worry about the moralfags getting in our way. Because. I'm pretty sure once we can create catgirls, anything else will be possible as well.
I hope everyone in this thread is memeing and doesn't actually want to live in a world that wouldn't have any qualms with killing you or anyone else.
Never. And if somebody does find a way, I'll know for sure s/he is the one I was destined to kill.
Fursuits are bad enough.
Moralfag here. It does not take a bible to know that such a thing can result into drastic damages in soceity in the long run.
For example: Designer babies are guaranteed to promote better life but what would happen to those who had bad genes? Are they going to be discriminated and eventually castrated to provent any bad genes?
I can go on further with this but I am too hungry
Just leaving this
What I'd do to have my very own Miqo'te.
I don't think removing those we call moralfags is the same as doing away with morality.
I consider myself a deeply moral person, but I am not a moralfag.
Maybe this is just a dumb semantical thing though.
Who gives a shit? Society right now consists of forcing people to slave their lives away as the ultimate freedom. Fuck that gay bullshit. Those with bad genes will be allowed to live, I guess. Some people are going to be better than others, a world where everyone is forced to be equal to everyone else instead of everyone having an infinite chance at become better, just means that everyone sucks instead of just a few people.
Just because you messed up with genes does not remove the fact that evolution is still in the works and a mutation would arrive sooner or later no matter how intricate you did the work.
What's going to happen to them?
Never but we'll probably get catgirl sexbots in the next 20 years or so
>pills for food
no we don't unless you want to end up in a hospital, spend 1500 /month on supplements or walk around with IV 24/7. The day I can fit an entire footlong subway sandwich worth of calories and nutrition into a pill,at a reasonable price, is the day I stop eating.
As for genetically engineered cat girls just make a cat girl android and get two birds stoned at once.
It would still be exceptionally complex to create the neural pathways in the brain required for motor articulation of a tail. Humans have tailbones and "fur", so in theory we'd just have to add a few bones and skin to create the general form of a tail to have the appearance of one, but the blood vessels, muscles, and nervous pathways would be hard to make.
Look, you see, you need to completely free your mind of all existing concepts of society, life, humans, etc, if you want to imagine the future. Stop thinking about what society right now will become, realize that society as we know it will go the way of the dinosaur. Which means it becomes a lot smaller, and has feathers, and flies. Or something, the point is current ideas and ideals will become completely obsolete with the absolute manipulation of genetics. Just let it happen, you'll enjoy it much more than what we have now.
I'll take you up on that offer. Anybody want to help setting up a self-sufficient community on an undesignated island? We'll be far enough away the moralfags will forget about us, so we can do our research in peace.
>The day I can fit an entire footlong subway sandwich worth of calories and nutrition into a pill,at a reasonable price, is the day I stop eating.
There are already technology that can do it. But instead, the funds are being focused on waifu androids because, well, why eat when you can be eaten by your legal sex slave?
Eh, I don't want to go with /pol/. They're pretty cool guys, but they can have moralfag tendencies which might ruin everything. It's sad, I'm blonde haired and blue-eyed myself, I would be a perfect addition in their eyes, but we don't exactly see eye-to-eye on many matters.
When genetic manipulation becomes possible, I'm going to become a Kars-like being. Fuck having catgirls, I will become the catgirl myself if I so wish.
>Cat girls are completely unnecessary because, technically, it is another form of slavery and you are messing up the genes of a living human just to cater to your fetishes.
By the time we'd have the technology to make real catgirls they wouldn't even be human, they'd be grown in a test tube and it wouldn't be slavery unless you count owning a pet now as slavery
It wouldn't be a pet adoption so much as it would be a daughter adoption. You modify the zygote, let it gestate, and when it's "born", you still have to raise it to adulthood. For the people who want daughterus, that's fine, but if you want to fuck it, you'd have to wait until age of consent-- and actually receive that consent.
>but if you want to fuck it, you'd have to wait until age of consent-- and actually receive that consent.
Ever played Nekopara? All you have to do is raise them close and give them food to have this kind of consent, also, don't forget cats age a lot faster than humans, so you would have to wait like, 5 years at max?
Yes goyim, just forget about everything about society.
moralfags =/= people with morality
Moralfags is what we call someone who believes that praying to a handsome man in the sky will solve their problems and that abortion is killing someone. People with morality is what makes society stable and liveable like it is.
Ponkotsu Akuma ova when?
Catgirls are sluts.
whats going on here?
I'll just dump them all. Denpasoft better make the official announcement soon.
Yes something was said at a con by Sayori in thesummer about it being localized by denpasoft but no word on it since.
>What is gene therapy
People would be able to have their current traits modified, though they wouldnt be able to pass them down, so it;s not like people would be left behind, everyone would be greater, though i can see some people being prohibited from having children, i do not see this as a bad thing as less and less people want to have children every year anyway
Remember to donate $10000 to the Kikestarter, goyim.
And I wouldnt have it any other way
Just a reminder that Sayori is already working on VR Neko girls.
I want to be biologically engineered into a cute catgirl!
And then become anon's catgirl pet!
are you sure about that?
still says 9 hours to go website
I'll probably drop 300 bucks for the plushies, but no more.
>Cat girls are completely unnecessary
She looks exactly like
>you're baby is going to look more like this as a result.
Fug, wrong pic. I meant to post this.
That one works too though.
>Imagine getting a bj from that seal hand
Yeah that's the stuff
Talk seal to me, baby
Sayori often creates a self-insert of herself in the material she draws. Shigure is her self-insert in Nekopara.
I suppose I could live with Utawarerumono style catgirls.
>Seal noises in between gagging
I'm dying. Send help
Did anyone else find it incredibly sad how catgirls in Nekopara were essentially property despite having human intelligence and the ability to speak fluently? If any sort of "genetic engineering of catgirls" happens, I hope they're granted human rights.
Yes and no.
No, because you didn't mix and match for any particular genes, you scooped mitochondria from one cell into another.
Yes because in the crudest way possible you did change the genomic makeup of the cell.
In the end you can use this method to help with mitochondrial diseases, but that's the extent of any potential designing. Knocking out genes for things like heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's is going to be a helluva lot more complex.
I don't know what would actually be harder, getting the ears right or the tails. Probably the ears considering you now have to worry about how the fuck they'll properly develop in the womb while with tails it would be more about actually getting them long. Getting both hairy would be an equal challenge, but making sure the hair doesn't lead to hearing problems is another factor to consider.
Gen 1 catgirls, if they ever get made, are going to be horrifying. I doubt even /a/ would fug them.
>there are "people" on /a/ who played the censored versions
I'm saying it took so long for her to not be shit because she probably never learned even basic anatomy.
It's much better and quicker to learn to draw 3d before you move on to 2d
I should also mention I have nothing against the scientists who did that experiment, it is cool shit and great news for medicine. But in the grand scheme of things it wasn't anything too cutting edge. Even when I was first learning about the experiments utilizing these techniques in rhesus monkeys as an undergrad the discussions usually ended with "and now we just have to prove that this is so simple and easy that we can double-dog promise that it's safe for human use."
We're going to have an epigenetics revolution in medicine before we move onto transgenic fuckery, mark my words.
>someone has already taken the single $10,000 backer option
>55 dollarydoos shipping to Bongistan
Fuck that's heavy, but I'll do it for the nekos.
$7,000 backer here. Totally worth it for the Nekos
Backer 138 here, would give more but spent a lot on xmas presents for family. Don't even care about the rewards, just want to make Sayori's dream come true.
>grab the pledge and sit on it
>cancel it at the last minute so nobody gets the reward
Why are people such assholes?
I strongly feel that this is an insult to life itself.
I am surely hoping that a responsible adult can save 100$ in 2 months.
My creditcard at least gets charged at the end of the month, so that means there's two months left to save the money.
what I'm saying is I know what my budget is, and I don't say "oh I could definitely afford this big purchase in a month" because you don't really know if things are going to go to shit between now and a month from now
>almost reached already
Tell me are we going to hit 500k
my guess is it stalls around the 300k mark
This but money instead of semen.
We anime now
$300 Maplefag reporting. Good job you awful faggots.
$100k seems like not a lot for a 20 minute OVA, especially considering how much of that will have to go to incentives and Kickstarter themselves. Do they already have some outside funding?
Additionally, catgirls are genetically incompatible with humans. So even if MC wanted to eventually have kids with any of his (effectively) sex slaves, it wouldn't be possible.
And how long do catgirls even live? They are fully grown adults in 2 years. Do they have cat lifespans of 16-20? Or do they just age super quickly and then have a normal human lifespan?
TL;DR It makes a great porn game setting, but when you think about it, it's rather depressing.
You think they'll include a scene where the mc snaps and beats the shit out of Vanilla?
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if a kickstarter for real catgirls would get funded
>Do they already have some outside funding?
Of course. Almost no one does crowdfunding campaigns without prior funding anymore. All the crowdfunded money is just the cherry on top.
I hate how you're gonna get so many (you)'s.
Some people like the cute neko girls and don't really care about the porn all that much.

way more than that, 13 episode average is 1-2 million USD depending on various factors such as full animation quality, studio, voice acting, and songs or not.
Then again most anime isn't in it for direct off sales it's for all the pull around the anime that it makes.
I don't even understand the story of this VN, it's so mind numbing i just keep click click and click, the characters are so bland and extremely generic, the dialogues feel like the same as the rest of the game, the VAs and OST are just painfully average if not shit.
The story is dark.
Psychotic sister wants complete control of your life and who you see. Knows you aren't into incest so manipulates you into banging your underage pets. Then as you develop a catgirl fetish all of a sudden now she wears cat ears.
You're correct about evolution but haven't thought the implications through fully. Engineering is a part of evolution so the red queen's race never ends, it accelerates. You worry about slavery but slavery never ended it just became less overt, however with genetic engineering it will be easy to make willing slaves, birthed from scratch, with imprinting for maximum loyalty. Consent is meaningless since it can already be manufactured and it's only going to get easier.
I honestly can't figure out why Sekai is translating Maitetsu and taking out the porn.
Without porn it's just an info dump on trains. Really the plot makes Nekopara's look like a masterpiece. People who bought it in Japan were either lolicons or train enthusiasts - and I can't imagine there are enough train enthusiasts in the west to make many sales off a de-lolified translation.
Looks like bug eyed vomit
yeah, I mean honestly I'm okay with whatever so long as there is an H patch of some kind, which will definitely be fanmade, since Sekai is never going to touch loli H scenes
apparently the scenes aren't even in the route of the game, you have to back out to the main menu and watch them as you unlock them
The only unfortunate part is that in the pursuit of more advanced civilization and accelerated evolution competition will weed out anything that's less than optimally productive for advancing civilization. You're either a cog in the machine or a parasite that's ruthlessly hunted, when sex for procreation is archaic the desire for catgirls would be a vestigial remnant that is purged from the mind. So close and yet so far away. Perhaps for a brief happy interval they'll be ours, but it will be a short lived paradise, nothing beautiful lasts forever.
Configuring your calico to look how you want is cool and all but even gastrofauna has more potential than epigentics. Maybe shit tier moralfags refuse to actually examine which genes do what but there are plenty outside western academia who don't have those inhibitions about actually doing science and crispr is going to make that info relevant.
>mfw best catgirl in full animation soon
I'd have paid for the blu-ray tier but I don't wanna get fucked over by shipping and VAT.
Honestly I don't really get Cinnamon's appeal. Her breasts are too big, so I don't care much for her physical appearance, and she's too much of a ditz so I don't care for her personality either.
I hope Nekopara 3 makes her more likable.
It gives the artist who draws stuff I like, and the VA's who do h-games that I like to masturbate to, more money so hopefully they can keep making the things I enjoy? Really, this is all basic Capitalism 101.
We're trying to but you want to ruin the fap material
>would be hard to make
It's literally turning on a handful of genes. Some people are already born with tails. Just a few, or sometimes even single genes have have a huge impact on how an organism develops. Also see scientists breeding chickens with teeth rather than beaks.
>but even gastrofauna has more potential than epigentics
t. Soon to be laid off pharma shill because your 5 million genetic determinism grant yet again failed to figure out why playing whack a mole with inhibitors isn't working anymore.
Systems based genomics is the future. And the system is controlled by epigenetics.
>Except Wars are what help progress science more.
That's not true. Profit is what drives people to make new things.
The only thing "wars" help with is creating large scale infrastructure projects that wouldn't necessarily be profitable for a company to undertake, but nevertheless improve the quality of life for people in that country.
Really, just look at how much technology has progressed just since the fall of communism. War hasn't really helped with any of that.
> come to 4chin for first time in years
> expect faggotry
> see this in catgirl thread
Only if VR and Robo girls don't pan out. And even then it would be highly illegal because "muh ethics" the only place you might get one is in in the floating anarcap technojungles of the Neo-Oceania exiles.
have fucking fun anyone who put money into this that is over the $800 tier. have fun when customs holds your package because they have to declare the amount to being 4k+ and you get heavily fined and have to hire a customs' broker to "formally" bring your package into the country
>DUDE METHYLATION LAMO!

>Catgirls are made
>All of them reject you as well
How would it feel to live knowing that fact you have been rejected by all spectrums?
>making catgirls who can reject you
What would be their place in the society? Geneticaly engineered slaves? I assume they would be talking and thinking like humans, so it wouldn't be as simple as having a pet, wouldn't it?
