This paper describes a human robot interface named the Attractive Interface, which promotes rich encounters between humans and robots. Considering the expected participation of robots in human society, the interface employs not only communication devices like a speech synthesis system but also a mechanism to promote the rich encounters. This key mechanism of the Attractive Interface is an agent migration mechanism that employs a personal CG agent as the interface between a human and a robot. This paper also proposes a robot tour guide system based on the Attractive Interface, and discusses the effect of agent migration.
