Bouncing Balls of Exaggeration
A poster from VSS2019, finally about to submit the paper. Looking at animation, physics, and the impossible yet perceptually preferable exaggeration therein. Phillips, F., Schmidt, F., Noejovich, L., & Chakalos, G. (2018). Exploring the Uncanny Valley. Journal of Vision, 18(10),… Read More
VSS 2018 – Exploring the Uncanny Valley
Balls! Bouncing balls. This is science so we gotta start somewhere. Mori’s Uncanny Valley phenomena isn’t limited to robotics. It has been observed in many other areas, including the fine arts, especially photorealistic painting, sculpture, computer graphics, and… Read More
A phase-space plot of height v. exaggeration for two different types of balls with two different coefficients of restitution. Nothing important here, just a fun looking plot.
Mmmm, fresh data
Some data from the summer project on the Uncanny Valley. Can’t give it all away yet- but this is cool so far.
Travels in the uncanny valley
Here’s a screencast of my talk at the Rochester Institute of Technology Symposium on VR/AR Technology. It is from 3 December and a little low-key, so drink a little coffee before you start watching so you don’t fall… Read More
