Abstract

Affective values are important factors in manufacturing in Japan. Kawaii, an affirmative adjective that denotes such positive meanings as cute or lovable, has become even more critical as an affective value and is playing a leading role in the worldwide success of many products, including Hello Kitty and Pokemon. Based on this success, we believe that kawaii will be a key factor in future product design. In our previous research, we constructed a model of kawaii feelings for cosmetic bottles and identified candidates of effective attributes to design kawaii cosmetic bottles. In this research, we used our model to clarify the relationship among kawaii feelings, attributes, eye movement indexes, and prediction results. Our results clarified the effective attributes for designing kawaii cosmetic bottles and the effectiveness of our model.
