Miss Ko ...the hypersexualized fantasy figure, funny at 12 inches tall but monstrous when life size, attracts and repels in a continuous loop of critical caricature and spectacular celebration.

...the original hypothesis states that as the appearance of a robot is made more human, a human observer’s emotional response to the robot will become increasingly positive and empathic, until a point is reached beyond which the response quickly becomes that of strong revulsion. However, as the robot’s appearance continues to become less distinguishable from that of a human being, the emotional response becomes positive once again....This area of repulsive response aroused by a robot with appearance and motion between ”barely human” and “fully human” entity is called the uncanny valley. The name captures the idea that an almost human-looking robot will seem overly “strange” to a human being, will produce a feeling of uncanniness, and will  thus fail to evoke the empathic response required for productive human-robot interaction.
