RealDoll and The Uncanny Valley
So when I read Grant Stoddard's article in Nerve about his experience with a RealDoll, my worst fears about the lack of humanity in these dolls was confirmed when I reached the following paragraph about his visit to the company that manufacturs the little terrors:
I asked the receptionist for the bathroom, and he pointed me down a long, dark corridor. Halfway there, I noticed a door was ajar and poked my head in. What I saw gave me a jolt. Dozens of Real Dolls were hanging from the walls by metal hooks in the back of their necks. They stared blankly at each other and at me, their mouths agape. It looked like a mass lynching at the Playboy Mansion.
humanity is shit Long leg
