Hi I am very new here and should have read a lot of how it works here
so pardon for jumping in and making a fool of myself.
The uncanny valley seems very real to me as a user while some developer
seems to be blissfully unaware or not giving it a thought or apologizing for
how creepy their products are.
Or I am overly sensitive to the uncanny valley and the develpers
maybe are normal or more unvilling to take it in. We all may be different.
Examples. Repliee Q2 seen on Wikipedia is a typical such that
show the difference between a developer that seems to feel rather okay
with the result while I and I trust many many others feel the result is creepy.
Now social consideration makes it unpolite to criticise people that spend years
on difficult things so I trust that most of people around him would not even consider
to tell him how creepy she behaves. Looks is rather okay but the ways she moves.
Another is the Danish developer that made a good looking copy of himself
but the movements are very creepy to me. My whole body feel sad about him
being that sick and I feel for looking away.

I feel bad to give him or any of his hardworking any criticism
but it is obvious to me that a developer is biased positively
seeing their brain children bots as good enough for display
while a critical end user say this is not good enough to pay for
Maybe it is an unsolable dilemma. The maker of a thing fall in love
with their creation. Very understandable and almost nothing one
can prevent. While a buyer can be overly critical because they
are paying for the end product and not always falling for it head over heals.
I am a retired Telecom Technichian and bad at programming so no wonder
that I am able to be this unfair so hope you guys can show pardon.
Anyway I love the effort all of you put into this and are looking forward to
any progress. It is exciting times indeed.
