Super Terrific Japanese Thing: Tailly, the Tail that Wags when You Get Excited



Get some tail for a $95 donation? Sorry, actual tail.

I can’t imagine how a robot tail that wags like a dog’s (but is worn by a human) failed to find funding on Kickstarter. Thankfully for furries everywhere, the inventor hasn’t given up and now it’s on Indiegogo.

Tailly is not just a toy, nor is it a fashion accessory or a gadget. It is those three items combined, and, since it reacts to the heart beat rate, an extension of the users’ body. Tailly is fun to wear to parties, while out with friends or playing with kids. You could even wear Tailly on a date and express your true feelings through the wagging tail. Even better, your partner could also wear one for the both of you to add a level of subconscious communication between the two of you.

I await the cybernetic leg-braces that read your level of arousal and automatically hump the nearest leg whenever critical mass is reached. And god forbid somebody figures out a way to keep this tail-thing straight and hard, with only the occasional vibration (you know they will).

Extremely super terrific video of the Tailly in (safe-for-work) action after the jump:
