Post your best pics that creep you out .
>I always heard it as "I've seen santa's dick"
>mfw I have "load webms automatically" checked in 4chanx
I just noticed this
silent hill and the bleeding eyes scarred me for life man
should I keep posting? some of these pictures haven't been seen on /x/ for a long time
Okay, since apparently you guys are a bunch of twelve-year-olds that refuse to use Google, I will explain this to you:
The uncanny valley occurs when something looks almost human, but not quite. This causes discomfort or disgust from the viewer. The graph on the right should give you an idea of both the concept and why it happens.
Examples: Creepy Japanese gynoids, the Polar Express (an animated CGI film)
Now stop posting pictures of monsters and ghosts, you fucking idiots.
>take time to craft a succinct and easily-understandable definition of the uncanny valley so only thread-relevant images are posted
>shitty irrelavant jump-scare gif gets posted immediately after
People like you are riding at the helm of this board's slow voyage into Hell.
>deflecting didn't work the first time, so I better keep trying
I was literally attempting to get this thread back on track. You're the one who's shitposting by adding the exact type of content someone who was literate would not want here.
She's edited out almost all the flaws on her face, and she's making an unnatural expression (one that's actually common in J-fashion circles). It makes her look "off."
Pic related is a similar facial expression I see a lot of Japanese models wearing. I always thought it looked creepy, but clearly not everyone does since this woman is so famous. Everyone's "valley" falls in a slightly different place.
Fuck, this reminds me of two years ago when my friend dressed up as one of these abominations for halloween. I couldn't even look at him, I had to go somewhere else for the night.
>this is what kids born after 2000 will remember as happy funtime childhood TV programming:
Also I think these things bring back bad memories I have of the first spy kids movie, where the bad guy would capture the secret agents and mutate them and keep them in cells and make them perform, and then at the end they mutate the bad guy himself. I was 9 but that still freaked my fucking shit. That shit was all kinds of fucked.
I.... I just have a really hard time with "silly" distorted human figures. They're not in the uncanny valley for me. They are straight out of the deepest chasm of my nightmares.
gotchya, OP. uncanny valley VIDEO.
you guys are gonna like this. and by 'like', I mean, this is gonna freak you out.
Not the anon that called you a fuckhead.
I don't doubt that you are somewhere on the autistic spectrum, or that you aren't bothered by uncanny valley stuff, if you say so. The thing is, because of the -spectrum- of autism, not everyone on it is going to automatically be immune to being creeped out or unnerved by something in the uncanny valley. Plus, uncanny valley effect isn't at all the same thing as non-verbal communication.
You should word your explanation for being immune to it differently (so that you aren't insinuating that autism = can't be affected by it), if you don't want to be called a Fuckhead in the future. Probably want to drop calling everyone a "scrub", too.
are you kidding me?
if we're going to have an uncanny valley thread, like OP wanted, next time, better start the thread off with real examples and an explanation. /x/ must be all kids, or retards. damn.
uncanny valley isn't really paranormal, it's more of a subconscious thing from our ancient ancestors. As far as understanding sayings, I used to take things a lot more literally when I was younger. Nowadays the biggest thing I have trouble with is general socialization. I haven't had a girlfriend in over a decade because I literally have no idea how to strike up a conversation, maintain long-term communication, or pick up on relationship cues. The only way I can make "friends" is if the person decides to persistently lead every conversation and initiate interaction.
There are subtle movements every human being makes with their face and head that show how vested they are in a conversation and to show acknowledgement of someone of the same species. I don't see those things, so I focus more on the general facial features and structure. Seeing something like the face in OP does nothing for me other than make me wonder why they look like that, and the characters in the polar express don't bother me because the subtle motions a normal person expects to be seeing aren't something I ever see
Sounds like you're really into it.
Did you have a helicopter mom that took you to the doctors for testing anytime you were different than other kids?
So glad I was born before the autism craze and the Ritalin days.
>I just have a really hard time with "silly" distorted human figures
This little cutie?
all this stuff that IS NOT uncanny valley in this thread, and my post here has no replies (in 16 hours). I'm sad. I really thought I'd come back to find at least one person had watched (and replied). Creepy dancing robot with scary eyes not working for you guys? a 2 minute video too long?
I'm not sure if it's creepy/uncanny or just that giant forehead. the "white" part of the eye matching the sky and hint of grey in her hair doesn't help either.
maybe it's both. thanks anon, never saw this one before.
a whole bunch of pics just like this one were posted on /b/ in a few threads a few years (?) ago, asking how do the pictures make you feel?
artist is alain delorme - "little girls". just google if you want to see more from the set. some of them are supposed to make you uncomfortable.
It would probably say the same about you.
I don't know why, but this picture freaks me the fuck out
in their defense, the thread name is "Uncanny Valley" and then he captions it with "post pics that creep you out" I kind of imagine a semi-colon being there, as in "post uncanny valley pics; also post ones that creep you out." But that's just me.
I seriously hope none of you guys are scared of flashing pictures like this.
>those two people holding him down
>"chill, MJ, it's not worth it"
TEH DAY OF ALL TEH BLOOD?
>ehhh what's up doc?
Cool, thank you. I thought the way it's body looked and moved was very uncanny valley. And yeah, the mask/eyes staring and it's talking is super creepy. At least I thought so.
^ you know what the difference is between my post here an your reply? I fucking contributed, you fucking faggot. You're the kid, kid.
Technically not uncanny valley, but I stumbled over this web.m yesterday and it weirds me out beyond all reason.
thanks for sharing this!
My first thought (still thinking about uncanny valley) was, while it's not uncanny valley, it still gives an uneasy feeling when you're looking at something and have that 'is this real or not' moment. Things that are close to the line of real/fake where you're unsure - that uneasiness is part of what causes uncanny valley. :)
my second thought was laughing at 2:35 - 2:55
