Tailly is a wearable wagging tail which reacts to the user’s heart rate. When you wear Tailly, you’ll radiate cuteness and happiness!

Short Summary

We have built a prototype of the moving tail, “Tailly”, which uses sensors on the inside of the belt to measure the user’s heart rate. 

Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/project.tailly
Twitter: https://twitter.com/ProjectTailly

Normally the tail hangs down, but when the user gets excited and their heart rate increases, the tail starts wagging, and when they calm down and their heart rate decreases, the tail swings slowly.

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.


What We Need & What You Get

The basic color of the tail is white, but the tail is interchangeable, and we also are offering covers in Black, Fox and Pink. Fox and Pink are Indiegogo limited color.

We set the fundraising goal to $50,000. If we meet the fundraising goal, we will aim to deliver “Taillys” to our kind supporters in September 2013. If more supporters join us, the perks which are limited in number will have priority.


The Impact

I, Shota Ishiwatari, the creator of Tailly, previously developed prototypes of Necomimi for Neurowear.

Thanks to NeuroSky, “necomimi” has successfully shipped to the market and has reached numerous customers. I am very happy about this and am immensely grateful to Neurowear and NeuroSky. As a matter of fact, the idea behind Tailly was born after those who bought Necomimi repeatedly asked when a matching tail would be available to complement their playful outfit.

However, this time around, I do not want to only create the protoype, but also see through the product design and production by myself. To make this possible, I need to raise $100,000 in order to cover the manufacturing costs for the production of the first lot. I have negotiated with a trading company to contribute half of the initial cost of $50,000. That is why I have launched this project with Indiegogo and am asking for your cooperation.
