Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations.

We created a new interactive design concept "FutureBody" that generates or augments new perceptions for users. The concept of FutureBody consists of two elements, "active searching" and "embodiment," allowing users to search their environment actively and to emit indirect feedback to activate users' embodiments. We believe this concept will form the basis for a new perception design methodology for people.

In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 399-400.
We developed a RoboJockey (Robot Jockey) interface for coordinating robot actions, such as dancing -- similar to "Disc jockey" and "Video jockey". The system enables a user to choreograph a dance for a robot to perform by using a simple visual language. Users can coordinate humanoid robot actions with a combination of arm and leg movements. Every action is automatically performed to background music and beat. The RoboJockey will give a new entertainment experience with robots to the end-users.

In this research, we realize human telepresence by developing a remote-controlled android system called Geminoid HI-1. Experimental results confirm that participants felt stronger presence of the operator when he talked through the android than when he appeared on a video monitor in a video conference system. In addition, participants talked with the robot naturally and evaluated its human likeness as equal to a man on a video monitor. At this paper's conclusion, we will discuss a remote-control system for telepresence that uses a human-like android robot as a new telecommunication medium.

Sakamoto, Daisuke and Ono, Tetsuo (2006): Sociality of robots: do robots construct or collapse human relations?. In: Proceedings of the 1st ACM SIGCHI/SIGART Conference on Human-Robot Interaction 2006. pp. 355-356.
With developments in robotics, robots "living" with people will become a part of daily life in the near future. However, there are many problems with social robots. In particular, the behavior of robots can influence human relations, and societies have not yet clarified this. In this paper, we report on an experiment we conducted to verify the influence of robot behavior on human relations using the "balance theory." The results show that robots can have both good and bad influence on human relations. One person's impression of another can undergo changes because of a robot. In other words, robots can construct or collapse human relations.

Research on humanoid robots has produced various uses for their body properties in communication. In particular, mutual relationships of body movements between a robot and a human are considered to be important for smooth and natural communication, as they are in human-human communication. We have developed a semi-autonomous humanoid robot system that is capable of cooperative body movements with humans using environment-based sensors and switching communicative units. Concretely, this system realizes natural communication by using typical behaviors such as: "nodding," "eye-contact," "face-to-face," etc. It is important to note that the robot parts are NOT operated directly; only the communicative units in the robot system are switched. We conducted an experiment using the mentioned robot system and verified the importance of cooperative behaviors in a route-guidance situation where a human gives directions to the robot. The task requires a human participant (called the "speaker") to teach a route to a "hearer" that is (1) a human, (2) a developed robot that performs cooperative movements, and (3) a robot that does not move at all. This experiment is subjectively evaluated through a questionnaire and an analysis of body movements using three-dimensional data from a motion capture system. The results indicate that the cooperative body movements greatly enhance the emotional impressions of human speakers in a route-guidance situation. We believe these results will allow us to develop interactive humanoid robots that sociably communicate with humans.

With the concept of 'human-machine interface', designed especially for visually impaired persons, we have developed an electric aid device for use in guiding orientation and locomotion. The device, which we call CyARM, measures the distance between a person and an object with an ultrasonic sensor and transmits the distance information to the user's haptic sense. In this report, we will: (1) outline the concept of CyARM, (2) describe its mechanism, and (3) demonstrate three preliminary experiments that verify the usability of CyARM. We conducted the experiments in terms of detection of objects, detection of space, and tracking object movement. As a result of these experiments, we have concluded that CyARM is potentially effective for visually impaired persons. Our study will encourage the related studies of user interfaces, particularly focusing on electric aid devices that guide visually impaired persons in detecting their environment.

We propose a concept of Ubiquitous Cognition and introduce an integrated agent for communication (ITACO) system based on the concept. To realize our proposed concept, the ITACO system tries to appropriately support a user using a migratable agent which is context-sensitive and gives continuous assistance. The key factor in this system is the construction of a relationship between the user and the agent, and to carry on this relationship between the user and the object that the agent has migrated to. Psychological experiments were carried out to verify this succession of the relationship between media. The results of the experiments showed that the subjects' attachment to the media as well as the relationship was succeeded through the media by the agent migration.
