    It`s supposed to be creepy. When something is far from perfect, our mind says "oh ok, they are trying to do that" and we like it. The closer we are to reality, the better our minds are fooled, but then, one part of our mind is saying "meh, I don`t like that, I mean it`s a girl, but there`s something odd". 3D rendering have that problem too, between the lovable imperfection and the perfection, there is the "creepy" part.

    I bet most reactions are going to be "WHAT THE drat IS THAT THING!"

    "Anyone notice how the cameraman zooms in on her chest toward the end?"

    That was to watch her breathing. They were going for lifelike actions, like the blinking.

    "Yes, but can you have sex with it???"

    It`s from Japan. What do you think?

    everyone`s creeped out by how lifelike, how realistic she`s mad. But no one wants to be the perv who is first to ask so I`ll just step up and ask...

    Exactly HOW lifelike is she? Completely realistic or just from the neck up?
