Animatronic Human Eye Mechanism

(YouTube link)

The uncanny valley is about to get creepier, thanks to this realistic-looking animatronic eye developed by Dan Thomson of Visionary Effects. Will this be used for movie effects, Disneyland presidents, artificial girlfriends, or working robots? Maybe all of those things! -via Laughing Squid

The subtleties of random, natural, in-between movements are needed, perhaps just not demonstrated in this spastic video. Without the naturalism it will just seem like a robot eye, dead, unhuman, boring. But early technology is kinda cool in itself for what's lacking.

D-Don't look at me!

This thing is almost perfect. With iris contraction-dilatation, the possibility of installing a mini camera inside, and maybe less noise you have the perfect eye for a cyborg.
