“An oft-cited theory in robotics, the uncanny valley, refers to that point along the chart of robot–human likeness where a robot looks and acts nearly—but not exactly—like a human. This subtle imperfection, the theory states, causes people’s feelings toward robots to veer from fondness to revulsion.” –cited in a post by Popular Mechanic’s The Truth About Robots and the Uncanny Valley: Analysis. Thought it was interesting to know where the humans have now explored the uncanny side of robotics, though it was a little bit creepy to tell that “it wasn’t movie-like” but apparently there are possibilities that in the near future we’ll have a humanoid counterparts. In this post we listed the latest humanoid robots that have been developed. Demo and development videos after the break, then don’t be scared.
