    Abstract

    Co-sharing the context among remote persons by current IT communication system is considered to require to co-existing feeling or "Ba", which is generated by a bodily interaction in face-to-face communication. This paper shows development of four Eye-ball Robots and shows a communication supporting system using these Eye-ball Robots as a bodily media. All Eye-ball Robots can express bodily movement such as gaze direction, blink, and nod in real-time, in order to generate a feeling as if you were gazed by person. Furthermore, the forth robot can transform facial outline and eye situation applying the remote person's physiological fluctuations such as respiration and cardiac beat provided by. The communication experiment, using second and third Eye-ball Robots as each remote person's agent, shows subconscious bodily synchronization, or entrainment witch is generated in smooth face-to-face communication, through the robot's movement. In another experiment, using forth Eye-ball Robot, the attention sharing between the robot and person facing the robot associated through robot's movements. Moreover, we found an expectation that the operator have a feeling of "get united with the remote robot" by seeing pseudonose in the video image. All these findings suggest that Eye-ball Robot can support effectively telecommunication as a bodily media for generating co-existing feeling.
