The latest resident of the Uncanny valley is this terrifying fake baby. Terrifying on one hand because it moves so much like a real baby, but not so terrifying compared to a real toddler because this one doesn’t poop and vomit everywhere. This monstrosity comes from Osaka University and is called AFFETTO.

The goal here was to create a robot modeled after a young child that could produce realistic facial expressions. They succeeded and it has reminded me that babies are just as creepy as some robots. I hope they never team up.
