My $.02 on the matter of hyper-realism for eyes is quite simple. In a word: don't
As discussed briefly here (>>15962
, ...), and frankly, across this board for years now, is that we aren't in any position (not just us, I mean mankind generally) to 'escape' the Uncanny Valley
for hyper-real, general-use Gynoids/Androids/Mammaloids anytime "Real Soon Now"(tm).
We're simply too well-tuned by God as homo sapiens sapiens
to be fooled easily, just yet.
And 'human' eyes in particular
are a relatively small part of the body that a great proportion of our brains & souls are tuned specifically for. I don't want to discourage anyone here from proving me wrong (far from it, I eagerly look forward to that day! :^), but tbh it's a fools errand IMO to think we'll manage such right out of the gate.
Therefore, I agree personally with the general consensus on /robowaifu/ thus far (indeed our tagline):
>"Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality."
At least the cute 'anime' bit at a minimum for now. Any other approach in the near-term will be a disappointing fall into that infamous valley IMO.
