Developing a working Auto-Detection for Penis-Drawings

Für ihr Wii U Miiverse Social Network musste Nintendo eine Auto-Detection für Penis-Zeichnungen entwickeln, damit die Plattform halbwegs jugendfrei bleibt und in einem Interview erzählen die Entwickler von den Hürden in Form von Penisbilder-Studien, die die Entwickler nehmen mussten. Ist wie ‘ne Pimmelstudie für Coder. Hilarious!

Kato: Kurisu-san suggested we study different types of penises in order to create figure out the relative shape and size people would draw. We spent a week doing that before we realized that we should have been looking at drawings of penises rather than real-life pictures. (laughs) We were very embarrassed about that.

Kurisu: My judgement on these types of situations is poor. (laughs)

Motoyama: After a week, we made very good progress on the system. Then we tested the system with Nintendo of America and told them to start drawing. It went horribly.

Kurisu: What we learned is that people enjoy drawing penises. Multiple ones. (laughs) The system was not prepared to handle that.
