Tailly continues to wag on Indiegogo
Tailly responds to the wearer's heartbeat, wagging fast when a raised heartbeat indicates high emotion and slowing with the pulse to a swing.
This time, the target amount is $50,000 – just over half the Kickstarter goal of £60,000 – which needs to be raised by March 7th, 2013 if the project is to be funded.
The cheapest incentive, at $95, consists of one Tailly with the standard white furry cover. For $125, backers will receive three spare covers in addition to the basic package, in black, fox and pink. The pink and fox tails are Indiegogo exclusives, although other colours and patterns will almost certainly be made available if the project is a success.
The Couple Pack, at $190, includes the four different cover options and two Taillys, so you and a loved one can fight over your preferred colour. The other options are a $720 Party Pack (ten Taillys with white covers) and, for $2,400, a 40-unit bulk-buy package aimed at the retail – haha, retail – market. All prices include delivery in and outside the USA.
If Shota Ishiwatari reaches his fundraising target, parcels of waggy tails should start arriving on backers' doorsteps in September 2013.
