    Uncanny valley. Aside from the jerkiness, the eyes are too glassy and the skin (particularly around the eyes) is not elastic enough.

    Holy crap! Thanks for that link. Definitely an eye opener. Now I`m a little scared.
    Only thing is, they still haven`t conquered the task of having a robotic hand toss a ball into the air, and then catch that same ball. Yes they showed a paper towel roll, but a cylindrical roll has a bit less of a random arc than a tossed ball would have.
