Since most robots are not easily displayable in real-life scenarios, only a few studies investigate users´ behavior towards humanoids or androids in a natural environment. We present an observational field study and data on unscripted interactions between humans and the android robot “Geminoid HI-1”. First results show that almost half of the subjects mistook Geminoid HI-1 for a human. Even those who recognized the android as a robot rather showed interest than negative emotions and explored the robots capabilities.
