Singapore’s government this weekend unveiled a “robo coach” – a robot that will help senior citizens exercise and stay healthy.

“Enhanced with sensors, RoboCoach offers personalized exercise routines that are more enjoyable for the seniors,” said Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim, Singapore’s Minister for Communications and Information, in a speech about using technology to shake up healthcare. “At the same time, it is able to ensure that seniors perform the exercise routines correctly so as to get maximum benefit from their workouts.”
