Japanese Company Invents Tail That Wags to Show Your Mood
Wear Your Emotions on Your Butt
Just when you think you've seen it all -- check out this new product, a tail that wags to show your emotions.
You know, since showing your emotions through words and facial expressions is so overrated.
While it makes a cute Halloween costume accessory, I can't imagine too many people in real life would want to wear a puffy tail.
Imagine wearing it to the office. Out on a date. To a family reunion.
Totally normal, right?
The "brain wave controlled" tail can express when you're happy, sad or scared.
Last year, the company that invented this tail, Neurowear, released cat ears that wiggled to show emotions.
I definitely appreciate that the girl in the video has somehow managed to coordinate her fuzzy hat with her puppy tail though.
The shippo tail waves with your "mood," the video explains, showing the girl's tail in a full wag to express her happiness.
How does it work? According to the video, "A neural app reads your "mood" and tags it to your location."
You can also share your mood with social media and use the app's search feature to locate places "that many people found relaxing."
Doesn't this video seem almost like an SNL commercial parody?
