In this paper, we introduce the health exercise robot TAIZO, and the social background of its development. TAIZO can be controlled through both vocal commands and key input. Being roughly humanoid in shape it can demonstrate physical exercises in collaboration with the human demonstrator. Through the experiment, we measure both the usability of keypad and vocal commands, and also their demonstrative effects. Through real demonstration, we confirmed that the robot is effective in drawing in onlookers and encourage them to engage in health exercises.
