I want to use this approach to include the original date of a publication. However the answer seems to work only with @book but not @article:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[authordate,backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{hume1739,
  author       = {David Hume},
  editor       = {David Fate Norton},
  title        = {A Treatise of Human Nature},
  publisher    = {Oxford University Press},
  year         = 2000,
  address      = {Oxford},
  options      = {cmsdate=on},
  origdate     = {1739/1740}
}
@article{mori2012uncanny,
    AUTHOR      = {Mori, Masahiro},
    TITLE       = {The Uncanny Valley},
    TRANSLATOR  = {MacDorman, Karl F. and Kageki, Norri},
    JOURNAL     = {IEEE Robotics \& Automation Magazine},
    VOLUME      = {19},
    NUMBER      = {2},
    PAGES       = {98--100},
    ORIGDATE    = {1994},
    OPTIONS     = {cmsdate=on},
    YEAR        = {2012}
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\DeclareCiteCommand{\citeyear} %lifted from biblatex.def
  {\boolfalse{citetracker}%
   \boolfalse{pagetracker}%
   \usebibmacro{prenote}}
   {% modified from here
   \iffieldundef{origyear}
       {\printfield{year}}
       {\printorigdate}
   }% to here
  {\multicitedelim}
  {\usebibmacro{postnote}}


\begin{document}

\cite{hume1739}, \cite{mori2012uncanny}

\printbibliography

\end{document}

So the 2012 is missing from Mori:

I would also ideally have the dates flipped. Like a citation 'Mori 2012' and in the bibliography 'Mori Masahiro. 2012. ... (orig. 1994)'

    You should note that \citeyear (as defined above) is not designed to do what you want it to do. It is a citation command (which you haven't used in your example), and has nothing to do with the bibliography.

The trick is cmsdate=both, no macro needed:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[authordate,backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{hume1739,
  author       = {David Hume},
  editor       = {David Fate Norton},
  title        = {A Treatise of Human Nature},
  publisher    = {Oxford University Press},
  year         = 2000,
  address      = {Oxford},
  options      = {cmsdate=both},
  origdate     = {1739/1740}
}
@article{mori2012uncanny,
    AUTHOR      = {Mori, Masahiro},
    TITLE       = {The Uncanny Valley},
    TRANSLATOR  = {MacDorman, Karl F. and Kageki, Norri},
    JOURNAL     = {IEEE Robotics \& Automation Magazine},
    VOLUME      = {19},
    NUMBER      = {2},
    PAGES       = {98--100},
    ORIGDATE    = {1994},
    OPTIONS     = {cmsdate=both},
    YEAR        = {2012}
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}


\begin{document}

Book \autocite{hume1739} and article \autocite{mori2012uncanny}.

\printbibliography

\end{document}
