It was the Spring 2010 Louis Vuitton runway show that first debuted the detachable racoon tail as fashion accessory. Years later, a furry add-on is seen attached to some of the most lust-worthy purses carried by fashion hounds around the globe. Today, it’s far from shocking to see a tail hanging nonchalantly from a woman’s bag, but what if said tail was affixed to her derriere?
Kink-factor aside, this is the vision Tailly hopes to bring to light. Part fashion accessory, part novelty gadget, the Japanese inventor Shota Ishiwatari has developed a tail that attaches around your waist and uses your accelerating or decreasing heart rate to—wait for it—wag back and forth like so many happy kitties you see awaiting their daily provision of Purina. Imagine: When you’re ready for extra helpings at the dinner table, your partner will no longer have to ask!
The Tailly Kickstarter page had hoped to to raise 60,000 pounds (almost $100,000 Canadian) to bring this prototype into mass production. Sadly, their efforts were for not as the public at large did not do its part in funding the union of human emotion and tail. Still, we can't help but wonder how many would be willing to give away their mood rings and make way for the wag instead.
