I wanna see if this thing can eat cookies. If all it does is crumble them up and go NOMNOMNOM as the pieces fall out of its mouth, then they'll need to go back to the drawing board.

No. They have just now reached the deepest part of it. It is even worse when visually they are so close and you still have things like stiff movement, the gaping mouth that flaps for no apparent reason, and robots should never look at you and smirk. That little half smile she does isn't endearing. It's creepy and wrong. Plus her job is to sit and stare at elderly and dying patients. How creepy is that?yummy wrote:It seems Japanese tech teams have nearly done it.
The next step, mechanical waifus ?
I can see humanity being destroyed by those things.
It's also programmed to answer the question "Are you Death?" with a "Yes.", a smile, and a blank stare.LateWhiteRabbit wrote:Plus her job is to sit and stare at elderly and dying patients. How creepy is that?
Reminds me of a short story I read back in school: "The sandman" by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In that story a guy gets in love with a girl, even dances with her and can't stop thinking about her, but finds out later that she is actually a machine which makes him totally insane. That's from 1817, it's totally creepy to see this vision starting to get real.

However, in practice, they might have solved one part of the uncanny alley, but they've wandered into another problem...
