OK. Japan has all sorts of cute things that I just don't understand and this came along my desk today from a friend asking for a helping hand.
OK. Here it is:
The Tailly is the invention of Shota Ishiwatari. The Tailly is a motorized electronic tail that girls (mostly - I hope) wear. (Or maybe guys would wear it and it would stand erect when they see a hot girl - oh no, that would be on backwards then, wouldn't it?) It wags just like a dogs tail and somehow reacts to the wearers heart rate. When the wearer is calm, it wags slowly, when the wearer is excited, such as when they meet a friend, the tails wags more vigorously.... Just like a dog's tail would do.
Shota is doing come Crowd Funding and needs your help. He's got about two more days to hit his target of $50,000 (USD) in order to start production. Shota only has $14,000 right now and he needs help.
OK, Shota, here you go... I hope you get a few extra bucks from this post.
Good Luck! I don't think this will catch on, but who knows? maybe the next thing is we'll see humans at the park running around sniffing each others asses?
