By linking with your email, Twitter, and other Social Networking Services, Coconatch can alert you of new messages and convey its feelings to friends and family near or far.

Coconatch is an adorable creature which will adapt its colour and movement to the content of each message you receive.

It is one of the first appearances of a “Social Robot” which possesses good points of both real-world and Internet communication.

Coconatch received Human Resource and Product Development support from the Information Technology Promotion Agency (IPA), and was commercialised in the first half of fiscal year 2009.
