Necomimi creator seeks funding for wearable waggy tail
Attached to a belt, Tailly responds to the wearer's heartbeat to produce a wagging motion when a raised heart rate indicates excitement, slowing to a swing as the heartbeat drops. The tail comes with a white furry cover as standard; black, brown and grey are available.
Update (29 Jan): The campaign failed, but it's been restarted on Indiegogo.
The ambitious £60,000 fundraising goal is to cover manufacturing costs, giving the creator complete control over design and production. This target must be reached by January 6 if the project is to succeed.
Backer rewards include a T-shirt for £25 and several levels of tail package. The cheapest of these, at £60, includes a Tailly and a white cover. At the top of the reward table, for £5,000, is a custom Tailly made to your own specifications for length, colour and motion. Taillys sent out to Kickstarter backers will carry a 'Premium' label to mark the wearer as an early adopter.
