Apparently “as a robot is made more humanlike in its appearance and motion, the emotional response from a human being to the robot will become increasingly positive andĀ empathic, until a point is reached beyond which the response quickly becomes that of strong repulsion. However, as the appearance and motion continue to become less distinguishable from a human being, the emotional response becomes positive once more and approaches human-to-human empathy levels”.

It’s only when things get too close.
