Next, a description of a fifth embodiment of the present invention.

Fifth embodiment, to identify a particular user based on the input by voice. Is the password or biometric information, such as, has the feature that the behavior of the character is changed according to the result. For example, take the character is close attitude if a particular user has been identified, other cases in ^:. Its good And brewing take the attitude. -

First, an example will be explained that identifies the particular user based on the password (secret word) input by voice. , '.

The field ^:, 'information communication device 1 0 includes: for example pot exemplified those the same structure in the first embodiment (FIG. 4)' having a '. The information communication device 1 0 converts microphone 1 0 6 amplification section 1 0, 5 ¾ through with audio signal input, into a predetermined form of sound information. Transmits to the server device 2 0. '

On the other hand, the server apparatus 2 0, for example having the structure shown in FIG 9. The server apparatus 2 Q shown in 囱 1 9, in addition to the same configuration as FIG. 6 described in the first embodiment, has a checking unit 2 1 8 as a functional processing Proc control unit 2 1 0. . Collation section 2 1 8, and the voice recognized by the voice recognition unit 2 1 4 on the basis of the acquired speech information from the information communication device 1 0, the particular corresponding to the acquired identification information from the information communication device 1 0 Pasuwa collating the de. Password, for example, in the user information storage unit 2 0 2 of the server apparatus 2 0, are stored in association with each of the identification information.

In the operation of this case, first, the character information generation unit 2 1 1 of the server apparatus 2 0, character generates character Kuta information to determine the human power of the voice of the password for the user, which, an information communication to send to the device 1 0. Password input request, for example if the newly inserted removable storage unit 1 1 7 'and is sensed predetermined physical state in the sensor unit 1 0 7. Or If there, every constant time (wakeup or the like done). Controller 1 2 1 information communication apparatus 1 0, based on the character information, reproducing the Yarakuta prompting for a password.

Controller 1 2 1 information communication device 1 0 My speech uttered by the user in response to the prompt character. Gurofon 1 0 6 inputted from, Sa BaSo location 2 is converted into a predetermined format of audio information .0 to send to. The speech recognition unit 2 1 4 of the server device 2 0, based on ^ came to acquired speech information from the information communication device 1 0 is converted to recognize the voice, for example, in the string.

Irradiation unit 2 1 8, and the password is stored the identification information acquired in advance from .. the information communication device 1 0 in association with the retrieved ,, the identification information in the user's rating billion parts 2 0 2, those the information input in communication instrumentation. 1 0. been collates etc. recognized password speech recognition unit ≥ 1 4 on the basis of the speech. When the two passwords match, the specific user in the information communication 'device 1 0, so (the owner of the specific character) is determined to have entered the voice, character information generation unit 2 1, 1, for example, wording and behavior of the character and generate a character information to be familiarly up, to generate the character information to speak, such as topic that leads to only that particular user. On the other hand, both Pasuwa - if not match Doga, since unknown user other than the owner is determined to have entered the voice in the information communication apparatus 1 0, character information generation unit 2 1 1, for example, character data as wording and behavior becomes standoffish of generating the character data information (such as using the polite language). Next, an example of identifying a particular user based on the biological information) about to be described.

In this case, the information communication device 1 0, for example, as shown in FIG. 2 0, in addition to the configuration shown in FIG. 4 described in the first embodiment, the bio-information acquisition unit 1 2 4. Biometric information acquiring unit 1.2 4, for example a fingerprint or voiceprint, a vein pattern in the retinal or palm, an image of a face, an information obtained from a human body, to acquire the information available to identify the individual. . The information communication device 1 0 transmits the biometric information acquired by the biometric information acquiring unit 1 2 4 to the server device 2 0. '·' '

On the other hand, the server apparatus 2 0., For example, similarly the case described above, has a checking unit 2 1 8 as functionally processing blocks of the control unit 2 1 0 (Fig. 1 9). However, in this case, the matching unit 2 1 8 includes a biometric information acquired from the information communication device 1 0, it obtains the information communication device 1 0 to. Collate the biometric information of a specific Interview and The corresponding to the identification information to. Biometric information of a specific user, for example, in the user information storage unit 2 0 2 of the server apparatus 2 0, are stored in association with each of the identification information .. .. '' In the operation of this case, first Kiyawokuta information generation unit 2 1 1 of the server apparatus 2 0, character generates character information to prompt the biometric information to the user, the information communication device 1 0 controller 1 2 1 J or of, on the basis of the character information, the biological information - to play characters prompting. - -

Controller 1 2 1 information communication device 1 0 transmits the biometric information input to the obtained section 1 2 4 preparative biometric information in response to prompts of the character in the server apparatus 2 0. Collation section 2 1 8 of the server device 2 0, the identification information acquired in advance from the information communication device 1 0 searches the user storage unit 2 0 2, of a particular user is stored in association with the identification information biological collates information, and biometric information input in the information communication device 1 0. Then, (owner specific character) j's biometric information matches your to Ba含 ,, information communication apparatus lo, Te specific user, but since it is determined to enter biometric information, character information producing formation unit 2 1 1, for example wording and behavior of the character is ^ formed the Canon lag. data information to be familiarly up. On the other hand, 'if both of the biological information does not match, an unknown user other than the owner in the information communication apparatus 1 0, it is determined that the input biometric information, key Yarakuta information generation unit 2 1 1, for example, key 4 turbocharger • wording and behavior of Rakuta is elsewhere elsewhere

Properly so as to generate the character information. , '

Described above as was., According to the fifth embodiment, to identify the user in response to the sound ^ password (secret word) and the biological information is the particular user (i.e. the owner of the specific character) If the character of the attitude and the case is not the case is different as to character data information Korea is 牟成. Thus, the user may further high Melco and force the sense of occupation of 对 the character; can, characters can each time deepen attachment to connectors. Further, in order to reduce the possibility of speaking human topics of other the character specific user, it is possible to and Tanoshimuko 'more private conversation with the characters. '■ Note that the matching process of the password that is manual by voice or the like. Verification process and may be performed together biological information more input in the biological information acquisition apparatus 1 2 4. For example, matches the voiceprint from the speech obtained by the biological information, if one cry not uniquely identify the user from the collation result, performs verification of password entered by voice, identifying whether a particular user it may be carried out again. That is, the matching unit, if it can not identify a specific user in matching processing of biometric information acquired by the biological information acquisition unit may further perform verification password entered by voice or the like. Accordingly, even if the accuracy of the biological information is rough, it is possible to separate precisely identify a particular user by matching Pasuwado. Password, stone'm even in advance what the user has set, as the content that is over The was in the past character asks casually to the user, so as not to Zase aware of the input of the password to the user 'it is also possible is there.

Although in the above example is provided with the matching portion 2 1 8 to the server device 2 0, it is provided with a processing block of this same ^ functional information communication equipment 1 0 'good. Input of the password is not limited to voice, for example, it may be input using any input device such as a keyboard Ya mouse. . '

Having described various real. Facilities embodiment of the present invention, the present invention is not limited by the above-mentioned embodiments Me mini includes various modifications. '

If in the practice ^ state described above, an example that identifies a particular user with a password or biometric information. If regularly performed such Interview The identification process, grasp the standing absence of a particular user it becomes possible. For example, the control unit 1 2 1 information communication device 1 0 includes a specific Me users according to whether identification. Can have or apricot within a period of Jo Tokoro determines standing absence 'of that particular user. Server ≤ 0 acquires a 'determination result of standing absence of a particular user in the information communication apparatus 1 0, if. The specific user is absent, and send the email one Honoré to the user Rere. Thus, even if the user you absent, one tie between the character - to keep the can is - because it can enhance more the affection for the character.

In the above embodiment, it generates character information by using the information of the character data stored in the unique character storage unit 2 0 3, which is playing a wire carrier Rakuta the information communication device 1 0 based on , not limited thereto, role-playing. games and character data development game, it is possible Kotochi be reproduced in information and communication device 1 0 character (game character) on any game. For example, 5 server 2 0 acquires attribute information of a character from the game server SoTadashi (not shown) on the network, and generates the character information based on this, to the information communication device 1 0. This

, Information and communication. Device. 1 0 can reproduce the game character in accordance with the. Yarakuta information. Also ^, in which the sensor unit, 1 0 7 and on the basis of various Me information inputted in the reader device 2 0, etc., may update the attribute information of Derm characters acquired from the game server device. For example, when the attribute value of the life force of the game character is reduced, re, as conditions that article information of a predetermined food over Da device 2 0 is input, by improving the attribute value of the life force it may be.
