Abstract

This paper proposes Ambient Bot, which is a notification service that ambiently offers some daily information to users. A user, who uses Ambient Bot, wears a lightweight head-mounted display (HMD) that shows the real space via a camera attached to the HMD. The user can see a virtual creature in the real space with augmented reality technologies. The creature speaks and visualizes daily information that the user may be interested in only when he/she focuses his/her attention on the creature. This paper presents an overview of and design approach to Ambient Bot, then describes the prototype system and its use case analysis.
