Is it uncanny in here or is it just them?
I know it’s even more off-topic than usual, but there is something I saw recently that disturbs me. Down to my soul. People call it “Uncanny Valley”, but it’s not a place. Ever seen computer-animated humans that almost look real? Kind of like in “Polar Express” and definitely in “Beowulf”. It’s creepy, right? The more realistic, the more creepy. But, that’s not all.
What I saw were not only pictures of these fake humans, but videos of robots that look almost exactly like humans and move and talk pretty much like they’re real. I don’t know exactly what makes it so creepy, but…it just is. It’s truly chilling. Now if they had realistic duck robots….
