Real life terminator sounds like a mosquito. [Apr. 13th, 2009|01:28 am]

This headless thing is creepy as hell.
Watch what happens at 35 seconds onwards... amazing! It falls right into the middle of the uncanny-valley, sets up a hammock and cracks open a beer.

I'm a fan of this one, personally.

Doesn't help that it looks like two ninjas locked in sumo wrestling postion who have had a carrying frame dropped over them in a poor attempt at disguise.

bizzare, they have an unnatural gait. notice the simultaneous movements of the opposite legs? real four legged creatures walk leading with their hindleg moving somewhat before the opposite foreleg , so as to always maintain three points of contact around the CoG for stability.

wonder why they did it this way?

Oddly, I don't really find Big Dog creepy. Perhaps because for me, a quadruped doesn't do the uncanny-valley thing.

Also, I find its gait and proportions are quite deer-like, rather than carnivore-like so it's harder to see it as threatening.
