 存在感伝達メディアとして、親子などの親族同士や、友人同士や恋人同士など親しい関係者同士での対話での利用を想定。Hugvieの利用により親近感が増すほか、高齢者などのコミュニケーションの動機や機会の増加につながると期待される。
 バイブレータ機能を搭載しないタイプは、ヴイストンを通じて販売。バイブレータを搭載するタイプも販売を計画している。今後、存在感の伝達に効果的なバイブレーションの研究や、触覚センサで話者の状態を計測することで、バイブレーションのみで存在感を伝えるメディアの開発に取り組む。

 Hugvieとは「Hug(抱く)」に、命や人生を意味するフランス語「Vie」を組み合わせた造語であり、「命を抱く」という意を込めた。JST 戦略的創造推進事業(CREST)研究領域「共生社会に向けた人間調和型情報技術の構築」にて「人の存在を伝達する携帯型遠隔操作アンドロイドの研究開発」として開発した。
 Hugvieに採用したミニマルデザインなどについては、4月27~5月27日開催の「H.Ishiguroデザイン展」で紹介する。会場となるヴイストンロボットセンター東京秋葉原店では、Hugvieを含む展示物の販売を予定している。
