Make AI Reality – Not as Bad as it Sounds

Hear me out. I know AI has a lot of issues, and I have consumed enough sci-fi to know that we would be doomed if it ever became real. Instead, I want to take “magic items” generated by an AI and think about how I would make them in real life – how I would make AI reality!

These images come from my other site Walking Papercut, where I use words from a random generator to feed into Midjourney and write a bit about it. You should check that out, too.

Anything goes

Over on Walking Papercut I laid out all the rules that go into making these images. There are really not that many, and I doubt they make much of a difference as far as the results are concerned. Over here, there is just one question to answer:

How could I make this?

And to answer that, anything goes. The idea is to come up with a way to replicate what the computer created using techniques and methods that can reasonably be used by a hobbyist – which, these days, includes most of the things, from 3d printing to plasma cutting. The idea is not to create a step-by-step manual on how to make something, but to get a good idea how you could approximate what you are seeing.
