This paper proposes a user-friendly framework for designing robot behaviors by users with minimal understanding of programming. It is a step towards an end-user platform which is meant to be used by domain specialists for creating social scenarios, i.e. scenarios in which not high precision of movement is needed but frequent redesign of the robot behavior is a necessity. We show by a hand shaking experiment how convincing it is to construct robot behavior in this framework.
