Ishiwatari says that the Tailly won’t merely be a toy or a novelty but can help couples and people communicate better and more honestly with one another.

“Tailly is not just a toy, nor is it a fashion accessory or a gadget,” he said.

“It is those three items combined, and, since it reacts to the heart beat rate, an extension of the user’s 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.”

The Tailly will be available in White, Pink (presumably for the ladies and Hello Kitty fans out there) as well as a masculine, matte black, for the fellas.

Having debuted his prototype and begun his aggressive marketing strategy (see video above) Ishiwatari has begun trying to raise $100,000 (US) on American Campaign website Indiegogo.

The Tailly will retail for about AUD$90, and also comes in ‘couple packs’ and ‘party packs’.

If all goes well for Shota and his Tailly it should be in production some time from September and then, finally, human beings will be able to communicate with each other without having to use pesky words and long, complicated sentences.
It might even help your relationship grow, allowing you and your significant other to develop a deeper and more powerful bond than every before… It’s going to confuse the hell out of your dog though.
