Warning: This Creepy Unskinned Animatronic Baby Cannot Be Unseen

After watching this animatronic robotic infant writhe around on the floor with no skin hiding its internal components, I bet you'll appreciate those awkward Uncanny Valley CG characters seen in films like The Polar Express.


The video was posted to YouTube by kitanimboy, who appears to be a freelance special effects artist. And I apologize for sharing it, but knowing that others are probably just as freaked out as I am will certainly help me sleep tonight.


Probably not.

Am I the only one who's not only freaked out by the appearance, but also by the movement? I mean, it looks like a baby in pain, being tortured to within an inch of his life, not just a normal squirming baby. Creepy.
