NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation, http://www.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/) recently conducted a filming of the Huggy Pajama project for a new program called Gatchan. This TV program is an educational program to introduce some of the famous universities in the world, and especially research works conducted by unique research labs in these universities.

After some research, NHK found that the works in Mixed Reality Lab are very interesting and suitable for the TV program. Ms Hiroko Kikuchi, the Singapore media coordinator for NHK contacted Professor Adrian Cheok, director of Mixed Reality Lab, and voiced the interest on highlighting the works done in the lab, drawing particular attention to Huggy Pajama. Initially, NHK representatives visited Keio University, where the NUS-KEIO CUTE Center’s lab is located. We showed a demonstration of the earlier prototype of Huggy Pajama and other lab works like Petimo and Kiss Robot.
