A question for those interested in the robotic uncanny: do these count? Artificial animals, androids bring the uncanny valley into play, yes, but are insects too strange, too uncomfortable for that effect? Do some life forms (here's the one you'd expect) give us the creeps on their own terms, so much so that we can't feel additionally disturbed?
Put another way: are there animals, or people, for whom the uncanny robot effect doesn't work? A creepy puppy-bot, yes, but perhaps a robot slime mold wouldn't engage us. Perhaps the uncanny valley requires a certain sympathy.
We could launch a contest: nominate the people least likely to disturb us in robotic form!
