What is uncanny ?

My version of  UNCANNY

blended feeling of repulsion, unpleasantness and embarrassement. coming to the front when something is approached to the reality and truthes that we have never told.

[UNCANNY FROM  from Wikipedia] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Uncanny

The Uncanny (Ger. Das Unheimliche — literally, “un-home-ly”, but ideomatically, “scary”, “creepy”) is a Freudian concept of an instance where something can be familiar, yet foreign at the same time, resulting in a feeling of it being uncomfortably strange. Because the uncanny is familiar, yet strange, it often creates cognitive dissonance within the experiencing subject due to the paradoxical nature of being attracted to, yet repulsed by an object at the same time. This cognitive dissonance often leads to an outright rejection of the object, as one would rather reject than rationalize.

[ Uncanny Valley  from Wikipedia] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley

The uncanny valley is a hypothesis regarding the field of  robotics.  The theory holds that when robots  and other facsimiles of humans look and act almost like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. The “valley” in question is a dip in a proposed graph of the positivity of human reaction as a function of a robot’s lifelikeness.

The term was coined by roboticist Masahiro Mori as Bukimi no Tani Genshō (不気味の谷現象) in 1970, and has been linked toErnst Jentsch’s concept of “the uncanny” identified in a 1906 essay, “On the Psychology of the Uncanny”. Jentsch’s conception is famously elaborated upon by Sigmund Freud in a 1919 essay titled “The Uncanny” (“Das Unheimliche”). A similar problem exists in realistic 3D computer animation.
