This paper describes a mobile context-aware 'intelligent affective guide with attitude' that guides visitors touring an outdoor attraction. Its behaviour is regulated by a biologically inspired architecture of emotion, allowing it to adapt to the user's needs and feelings. In addition to giving an illusion of life, the guide emulates a real guide's behaviour by presenting stories based on the user's interests, its own interests, its belief and its current memory activation. A brief description of the system focusing on the core element - the guide's emotional architecture - is given followed by findings from an evaluation with real users. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
