Masahiro Mori proposed a relation between human likeness and shinwakan, which may be roughly translated as rapport or comfort level: more human-looking robots are perceived as more agreeable until we get to robots that look so nearly human that subtle flaws make them look creepy. This dip in their evaluation is the uncanny valley. The valley, Mori argued, would be deepened by movement. The term uncanny valley is now commonly applied to animated characters in films and video games.
