The Parasitic Humanoid (PH) is a wearable robotic human interface for sampling, modeling, and assisting nonverbal human behavior. This anthropomorphic robot senses the behavior of the wearer and has the internal models to learn the process of human sensory motor integration, thereafter it begins to predict the next behavior of the wearer using the learned models. When the reliability of the prediction is sufficient, the PH outputs the difference from the actual behavior as a request for motion to the wearer by motion induction using sensory illusion. Through the symbiotic interaction, the internal model and the process of human sensory motor integration approximate each other asymptotically. This process is available to transmit modalities such as senses of sight, hearing, touch, force and balance with human embodiment. This synergistic multimodal communication between distant people wearing PH can realize experience-sharing, skill transmission, and human behavior supports.
