Zone2 What is you? What is a human?
From Zone2-1, what?
Many robots and technologies have been created to expand the possibilities of human beings, and the relationship between robots and humans has developed into a deep “body” relationship. To what extent are robots and where are humans? What is the human body? You can experience it by actually moving the robot and wearing it.MetaLimbsType 0 human machine ver.1.2 human machine unitedOriHime
Zone2-2 What is a heart?
The human “heart” fluctuates with various emotions. A variety of robots have been born that are close to their hearts. Taking hints from the emotions that arise toward various robots and the fluctuations of your own emotions, you will think about what the human “heart” is.aiboLOVOT
