Abstract

In this paper, we propose the use of a plant as a new interface by superimposing its static lifelike traits such as texture and growth, with dynamic lifelike traits In order to improve the affinity and to promote smoother communication between a man and a robot, researchers have tried raising lifelike traits by modeling a domestic robot's operation, form, and texture on a living entity A plant exists as a static entity having features peculiar to living entity such as texture and growth Although plant is a living entity, it does not have the capability to move on its own unless living entity compelled by external forces Therefore, in this research, we give lifelike behaviors to the plant by attaching an actuator to it
