This exploratory study developed a series of exercise-oriented animation clips which would pop up and play periodically on computer screens with the help of a timing-broadcasting program to promote physical activity for computer users with prolonged sitting at work. Sixteen animations were designed and integrated into a timing-broadcasting system. The system would randomly select and play an animation once every hour on the computer desktops of the four participants, who customarily sit in front of computers for prolonged time. The preliminary results show that all the participants would either follow the movements of the animations for exercising, or take a break, or make easy body stretches during watching the animations or afterwards. Some declared that they would do exercises even when they got home. They also revealed their preference to simple and easy to engage in kinds of exercises. Suggestions on improving the animation and process design are discussed at the end.
