In my continuing habit of linking everything that Bruce Sterling links to at my own blog, I now present FPS readers with this video by Serbian band Strip. The video follows the journey of an older female robot as she looks at new models and faces attacks from thuggish humans. I like how the robot's animation is purposefully employed to create an Uncanny Valley response, thus commenting on how we relate to representations of human motion in general, as well as how consumer culture treats "older" women.
