Museum of Science and Industry


I think the idea of the “uncanny valley” is so fascinating! (It's when realism in robots goes from cute to kinda creepy. Watch this and you'll know what I mean.) With hopes of bridging this valley of creepiness, scientists in Italy have created a new robot called FACE (Facial Automation for Conveying Emotions) who has more realistic expressions than ever!

Take a moment to watch FACE going through a range of emotions in the video above. Did she make you feel uncomfortable at all? Check out some other incredible (or incredibly creepy?) humanoids below to see if any of them fall into your own personal uncanny valley!
