The uncanny valley phenomenon can be described as an eerie or unsettling feeling that some people experience in response to not-quite-human figures like humanoid robots and lifelike computer-generated characters.

Have you ever encountered a lifelike humanoid robot or a realistic computer-generated face that seems a bit off or unsettling, though you can’t quite explain why?

Some humanoid robots do look a bit creepy.

I've never encountered a very lifelike robot but I could imagine that someone trying to introduce one to you without forewarning could be a creepy experience.
