We present a physical multimodal conversational Companion in the area of health and fitness. Conversational spoken dialogues using physical agents provide a potential interface for applications which are aimed at motivating and supporting users. Open source software called jNabServer, which enables spoken and multimodal interaction with Nabaztag/tag wireless rabbits, is presented together with other software architecture solutions applied in the development of the Companion. We also present how the Companion manages interaction with the combination of a dialogue manager and a cognitive model.
