...I found myself murmuring something like "I'd wear it."Of course, I think I'd have to be jamming out on stage.It would totally make up for the receding hairline though.
Mr. JWZ, I've always wondered why you find pictures of mannequins, dolls, and sculptures so interesting. I think I remember reading over at your gruntle site a long time ago that you own a few mannequins yourself.I'd just be curious as to what the fascination is.
Personally, I find them a little creepy, increasingly moreso as they improve in realism up until the point that they become a lifelike sculpture, and then for whatever reason they're okay again.
JWZ "grew up" (if you know what i mean) at CMU, just down the hall from the robotics lab. Need I say more?
We call it Voigt-Kampff for short.
That'll be the Uncanny Valley then?
Yes, I was trying to remember what that was called when writing the post and the name wouldn't come to me.
As for the Voigt-Kampff test, it always seemed to me to be like the ultimate in advanced Turing tests. I hope I would pass one.
