ASAHI SHIMBUN (Japan), KICKSTARTER (UK)
TOKYO - Japan is a country known for its cutting-edge science and technology.
Walkmans, videocassette recorders, Compact Discs, Blue-Ray, digital cameras, flat panel tvs – you name it, it was invented in Japan.
But this new Japanese invention will – literally – blow your tail off.
The “Tailly,” according to the Asahi Shimbun, is a wearable tail that is connected to heart-rate sensors. When the user’s heart rate increases, the tail wags excitedly, “radiating cuteness and happiness,” according to its inventor Shota Ishiwatari.

The idea, is to help you express your feelings.
Ishiwatari is seeking funding of $96,200 to develop his product globally through crowd-funding website Kickstarter.
The tail comes in four colors: white, black, brown and gray.
You might remember Shota Ishiwatari from his previous invention, the Necomimi headband – a pair of cat ears “that read the wearer’s brain waves and then move accordingly,” reports the Asahi Shimbun.
