Submission + - Famous Uncanny Valley Essay Translated, Published in Full (ieee.org)

An anonymous reader writes: IEEE has published an English translation [http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/humanoids/the-uncanny-valley] of the 1970 essay in which Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori introduced the now-famous concept of the Uncanny Valley. The original essay was in Japanese, and IEEE says this is the first publication of a translation authorized and reviewed by Mori. They also have an interview with Mori [http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/humanoids/an-uncanny-mind-masahiro-mori-on-the-uncanny-valley], who still thinks that robot designers should not attempt to 'cross' the Uncanny Valley.
