The boy was like a puppet; always wearing a mask to hide what he was feeling and always did as he was told. The strings cut into his wrists, and the little fight in him said to keep going, but his mind told him to give up and conform to fit society.

More than 40 years ago, Masahiro Mori, then a robotics professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, wrote an essay on how he envisioned people's reactions to robots that looked and acted almost human. In particular, he hypothesized that a person's response to a humanlike robot would abruptly shift from empathy to revulsion as it approached, but failed to attain, a lifelike appearance. This descent into eeriness is known as the uncanny valley.

I love how the art style is realistic but not in the uncanny valley. It is a unique blend. I want to use this kind of style.

More than 40 years later, Mori's essay on the "uncanny valley" is finally published in English. It is about the dip into eeriness we feel as robots become more human-like. I learned about this at the last Girl Geek Dinner in Amsterdam! Cool stuff and more relevant than ever!
