Taizo Helps Japanese Elders Exercise and Actually Isn't Frightening

What we like most about Taizo is that he seems to be a really cheerful fellow; he's not leaping into the uncanny valley or anything.  He's designed to help Japan's growing population of elderly folks get in their daily exercises.

This is certainly cute, but at $8,000 USD (approximately) this is a pretty expensive way to coax Grandpa out of his favorite easy chair!
