the uncanny valley

Robot Baby Will Haunt Your Dreams

I never fully understood the concept of the "Uncanny Valley" until yesterday, when I saw this video of a Japanese "robot baby". It doesn't have lifelike skin, but when it stands up using its "hydraulic powered muscles", I threw my hand over my mouth in disgust. I'm incredibly fascinated by robots and would love to own one some day, but I think there will be a lot of chills had before I get to the point where I can actually mentally handle it.
