The exhibition is curated by an expert in the field, Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro. For him, perform these developments has an important scientific and technological involvement, but with repercussions on the side humanoque worth taking into account:
"Androids are made to explore what being human means, examine what is emotion, which is consciousness, which is thought."
While the stars of the show are three androids, who attracted the most attention are Kodomoroid and Otonaroid for his human appearance. Telenoid, with a more neutral design, is the android who completes the trio.

Moreover, Otonaroid looks like a young woman and her place in the Miraikan is "robot science communicator", so you can interact with it. Finally, Telenoid was designed to develop the human mínimasde communication features.
The three robots are operated remotely. Visitors to the exhibition will have an opportunity to interact with all three, with the difference that both Otonaroid as Telenoid may be operated directly by the guests.
