If you’ve seen the recent Disney movie Mars Needs Moms, then you’ll know that the mom character looks a little odd. The artists are approaching photo realism, but something’s not quite right. This is known as the uncanny valley.  Until we reach the ultimate photo realistic goal, we almost need to de-res our avatars or suffer the eery creepiness of the uncanny valley.
