Uncanny Valley graph

I am continuing to organize (and also re-write) the projects which are going to become a part of the practice portfolio of the PhD. The Uncanny Valley/Avatar was the first big self-observational thing which I did in SL, almost 4 years ago. For this I applied Masahiro Mori’s robotics theory from 1970 to avatar appearance. So, the graph above is an adaptation of Mori’s original graph. At the bottom are his examples and at the top are the corresponding ones which I came up with.
