    Very cute in a technological sense. Kinda of creepy with the jerky movement. They either need faster processors, better control software or improve/create artificial musculature.

    I don't know what their current software load is, but they do need improvement it. It appears her reactions are slow, possibly due to long decision trees.

    Definitely less creepy than the average person doing check out at Walmart. Probably would be a friendlier, better worker also that cost the company less to "hire".

    I'd say humorous. For some reason when she was blinking and everything I started laughing. But kudos to researchers for such a life-like face.

    Still in uncanny valley with this one. The reason is two fold, the smoothness of her motions and she has no motion, another words she is very stiff and artificial appearing. Real humans and animals in fact have a slight bit of motion to them because they especially when standing are constantly adjusting their balance and you can pick up on that with here because she is usually stiff. They loosen her up a bit and give her a bit of grace and smoothness she will surpass the uncanny valley.

    That was my take. Standing there, it doesn't look REAL but looks like a very good reproduction of a human that could pass for a cute asian girl at quick glance.

    The moment she started moving it basically was uncanny valley central. Like, the epitome of the definition of the word. Just unsettlingly creepy.

    The person comparing it to movement in the grudge wins the thread

    I'm going to side with a lot of conservatives/libertarians on this and say this f'n terrifying. I guess, it's cool and the mechanics involved probably interest me but if I was ever approached by one of these things, I'd shoot it.

    Creepy and unnecessary.

    Androids DON'T need to resemble Human beings.

    Its a waste of effort that could be spent elsewhere.

    Make the all look like C3PO and work on the one issue thats limiting the viability.

    I think this is the first time we've ever agreed on something.

    I get creeped out because they're always designed as 'women' and there's no reason for them to look human aside from filling a gap in some ones social needs.

    As a technology, it doesn't interest me in the slightest. She's hardly convincing either.

    Neither creepy nor cute. This is nothing more than a sophisticated mannequin, or a doll.

    A remarkable technical feat? Yeah sure, but keep in mind that this thing can't walk, it's movements are still quite unnatural, and it has no artificial intelligence.

    These type of robots have a LONG way to go before they truly start to resemble humans in any sort of meaningful way.
