Virtually a Virtual Virtual Friend

At an NTT Commubications Group Expo, NTT introduced a virtual robot friend who can change identity. To the outside observer, the robot looks like a green rubber featureless dummy.

To the user, while wearing the HMD headset, the dummy takes on the apperance of a full-features robot person.

The communication dummy can take on the role of a distant friend or family member for full personal comunications.
