I'm still amazed by the progress of technology, yet disturbed by its limitations.
Robotics can take us so far with the articulation of joints and the fine movements of fingers. While amazing to view, those articulations remain more robotic than lifelike.
We now see fine motor skills being used to obtain a lifelike human mouth. No matter how hard they try, plastic still shows how obviously inferior it is to human skin. The jerky movements of every servo show how imperfect our understanding of the emulation of human movement is limited.
We strive to perfect the imitation of something that is truly imperfect.
