A Child-like Humanoid robot – ibuki

 “ibuki” is a child-like android equipped with a moving unit. We created ibuki to realize the conversations and share experience together with people in society. We believe that such androids can build a deep relationship with people. With regards to the feasibility and the safety aspects, a set of wheels is adopted as its moving unit. With the help of such mechanism, ibuki can replicate human-like walking motion. Also, having 47 degrees of freedom enables it to have various emotional expressions such as gestures and hand signs, in addition to different facial expressions.
