Robotic rings for wearable robotic interaction

Japanese university project to create playful animatronic jewellery …

File Under: Crazy enough it might just work 

These robotic rings that imitate eye and mouth movements are being developed by a research group at Keio University.

“When you wear this robot on your hand, it forms a medium for communication using the hand. So the robot serves as a device for enhancing the animal-like, imitative ways that people use their hands.”

“First of all, this device resembles a toy. So we want to make it more like a character, like when children or their parents play finger games. That would enable a new form of interactive play. We’d also like to incorporate this robot into the way children use their hands to communicate with each other.”
