Facial expression is the most import factor for communication in terms of non-verbal information. We have been developing face robot which can express facial expressions like human being for 10 years to realize emotional communication between human and robot. Because face skin is made by silicone rubber, durability of connector mounted on the backside of skin for pulling was issues to be solved. We find the solution and realize the receptionist system for practical use. The basic working principle is applied for the patent soon. The expected market with business model is shown in this paper.
