An interactive finger-gaming robot with real-time emotion feedback

This paper aims to develop an autonomous humanoid finger gaming robot that can interact with humans. The finger gaming robot will have 9-inch panel display to show the robot face, two robotic arms of which each contains a hand with five fingers, a mechanical chest, and a wheel-type mobile platform. The mechanical arm and hand can smoothly carry out all actions required in a finger guessing game.

The robot can recognize human hand gestures and tell the number of fingers shown. Aided with speech recognition capability, the robot can identify the content of human players’ finger guessing. The finger gaming robot can, in the absence of human help, independently detect intelligence, and autonomously carry out a variety of finger guessing game contests with humans, providing a brand new entertainment robot in the catering sector.
