A division of the Sanrio Group, Kokoro, specializes in designing and manufacturing robots.
Their first freakishly human-like robot, the Actroid DER, provided services welcoming guests at numerous events.
Kokoro intends to rent Actroid DER2 to companies and events. The basic rental fee is expected to be 400,000 yen (US$3,500) for 5 days, plus extra fees for technical support, delivery and choreography changes.
For those who cant cope with a sayonara after 5 days, there is a late fee of 80,000 yen per day.
