There is an Uncanny Valley
- and this virtual Japanese pop star lives there.
13 years ago
There is no uncanny valley. There are only neurotic people.
you know I'm not going to be able to think about anything else now, right?
one of my favorite webcomics
(set hundreds of years in the future) just pointed out that it had
"holographic pop stars" in a storyline ten years ago
(before the artist learned how to draw), complete with the line "The trend was already established in the 21st Century"...
"Ask not for whom the 3d hologram pop star sings - it sings for thee"
If only they had come up with something other than yet another Sailor Moon clone. Also, neat blog! Thanks, oh multicoloured one.
*wonders what a canny valley would be like*
