Spooooooky Faces

Wired has devoted its December 2011 Play section to the uncanny valley. I can't link now (they seem to post issues with a delay, so check the site in January), but if you're interested in this concept, the issue is worth a look.

They have short bits on CGI characters, robot toys, porn stars, and more!

Also, the historical background on the term, and the information that while it was coined in 1970, it's really only become popular in the last few years. Has the world been getting uncannier lately?
