About

HUGO is an empathic symbiotic creature that interacts with humans, responding to their emotional state.

It is a portable inflatable soft robot designed to mimics the comforting embrace of a human being. The concept of HUGO emerged as a response to the quarantine period and the need to ease anxiety. HUGO manages to provide both the physical and emotional attributes of a hug, contributing to de-stressing individuals and untangling negative feelings.
