Abstract

This paper presents a creature-like tentacle robot, JECCO, which is inspired by an imaginary artwork series. JECCO robot has five robotic tentacles and a novel creature-like interaction mechanism. JECCO responds to a user’s contact gestures and provides to users a sense of a living creature. The tentacle expression of JECCO robot provides a unique interaction style and impressive experiences.
