Abstract [en]

Designing robots, virtual creatures, artificial companions and social artifacts can really be rather challenging sometimes. Forms and shapes that people are familiar with seems to inevitably correlate with their interpretation and interaction. For instance - Paro's inventor, Takanori Shibata, proposed an idea that people's acceptance towards the therapeutic robot seal would be higher than compared to e.g. a robotic cat, as people has less prior experiences with seals than with cats.
