It’s also interesting to appreciate the complexity of facial muscle movements to show various expressions.This is a well-known challenge in 3d animation which is only overcome in big production movies.This feeling is called the “uncanny valley” which occurs when a human like robot is over realistic and causes a revulsion reaction for the observer.(identify by japanese roboticist expert Masahiro Mori in 1970).Yes, the quality of the film, the old 35 mm tape and a later duplicate copy of 16mm, support its true age but the plot is not dissimilar to our lifestyles of today. It describes a life on two levels – thinkers (the managers) and doers, the workers who, like in many of today’s big businesses, exist as numbers or statistics, rather than as real human beings.The two level separation is carried one stage further, in that the workers work underground, eyes glazed with such monotonous work, while the masters work above ground, in what features as a brightly-lit city, heavy with traffic and taxis and sporting not only the Eternal Gardens but also Yoshiwara, its own red light district, for the pleasures to be found within. Fredersen is the powerful master of the city of , devoid of feelings and he is the almighty one who controls life underground.Even now, in the twenty-first century, aren’t we still in awe of what special effects can achieve?The story ending of DENISE – VIRTUAL ASSISTANT Denise is a sexy interface for a virtual assistant, this caring digital girl can help you doing many tasks on the computer.
The real problems start when Freder, the son of the master of Metropolis, finds out about this underground life of Hell and sets off on a course to right the wrongs of his father.
Videos of human robots with animated facial expressions Human Robots – starting with female robot Alice & and male robot Jules by Hanson Robotics The book Metropolis is dated back to 1925 and the film (see below pictures of Maria transformed into a shiny then lifelike female robot), the most expensive silent movie ever made, was made two years later.
A droning yet very powerful storyline, it is difficult to believe it dates back to the 1920s.
This theory does not only apply to human robots but also (to a degree) to stuffed animals and corpses and very realistic 3d models.
Nevertheless the below footage is estonishing and gives an insight in the progress in human robotics and how realistic the result can be.
