Older adults are increasing in Europe [2]. Technology may play a role in older adults' health. Giving technology the ability to be physically manipulated can result in creating trust [4]. According to Spreicer [8], co-designing tangible user interface with elderly people can increase the chance of technology acceptance. NESTORE [6] is a virtual coach that comes in different forms of modalities/interfaces: a chatbot, a mobile application and a tangible coach. This article focuses on presenting one of the interfaces of NESTORE: the “tangible coach”. The tangible coach is an embodied conversational agent that seeks to empower older adults in becoming the co-producers of their wellbeing lifestyle through its tangible and its vocal interaction.
