Overcoming the Uncanny Valley

A feature article about the perceptual gap between images of real human faces near-human representations.

Abstract: "What makes some near-human characters scary while others are merely laughable? More important, why do some human and humanlike characters fail to arouse our sympathy? Visual artists and roboticists face these questions as they seek to alternately frighten and endear. Recent attempts to create accurate human replicas have brought these questions to the fore with increased urgency."
